Ovulation and menstruation occur in sequence each month and are inextricably intertwined. ...Read more

Can you let me know how many days after a period does a woman ovulate?

Can you let me know how many days after a period does a woman ovulate?

Day 14 but it varies: In an idealized 28-day cycle ovulation occurs 14 days after the first day (cd 14) of the last mentrual period. In real life, most of us have seen apparently normal ovulations between day 11 and maybe 15-16.

Ovulating: Usually, if you are not ovulating every month, you would not have periods every month. The absence of ovulation (anovulation) is known to be the most frequent cause of missed period after pregnancy. However, to answer your question - if you don't ovulate in a certain month, you will not get pregnant. That's the only implication really. ...Read more

Not really : if and when one ovulated one of two things happen. Either you get pregnant or you don't.
