When does ovulation actually occur if your cycle ranges from every 25-28 days? About how many days after? And how do you know when it occurs?

Dr. Jeff Livingston

Ovulation: Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. ...Read more

Is it true if I have regular cycle i ovulate every month but people say no it's not true?

Dr. Gerard Honore

Mostly true: If you have regular cycles - and that means 27-32 days, and don't miss more than 1 period per year, let's say - then 98% you are ovulating consistently. The actual day may vary from month to month. ...Read more

Cycles: If you have your period you know you ovulated that cycle. Many women learn to feel the release of the readied egg. This is called Mittelshmerz. Ovulation happens just shy of halfway through. So in a 28 day cycle day 13/14. That means sperm causes pregnancy days eight to fourteen. Simple. Not complicated. ...Read more

Do you ovulate the same day every month?

Do you ovulate the same day every month?

Not necessarily: You may not ovulate on the exact same cycle day each month, but most women tend to follow a similar pattern. I would expect that you can rely on populating plus or -1 to 2 days each month. If you're trying to become pregnant, doing an ovulation test for three or four months should help you know fairly precisely what your pattern is. ...Read more

Not always: The best marker for ovulation monthly is to have a menstrual cycle monthly. If cycles are light, irregular and spaced out farther than 35 days, it is a sign you may not be ovulating regularly. There are many reasons for not ovulating and it may take a visit to your provider to get an explanation. If you do not ovulate regularly for many months or years there is an higher risk of uterine cancer. ...Read more
