I'm having a hard time figuring out when I ovulated. Last period started june 18th and my cycles are 29 days long. Help?

Math: If your cycles are regular, then subtract 14 from the number of days in your cycle to get the day you are likely to ovulate. So for you that would be around day 15. The luteal phase remains pretty constant for most people at around 14 days in length.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg.

My last period was on may 2nd and it ended may 6th. My period before that was march 31 to april 4th. How long is my cycle? & when will I be ovulating?

Day #1 is first day: When measuring cycle length, the first day is always day #1. Your cycle length goes from day #1 of one cycle to the day #1 of the following cycle. The time between 3/31 to 5/2 is a 32 day cycle. If your cycle is irregular, the day of ovulation is difficult to know. Average would be day # 18 for a 32 day cycle. Try an ovulation predictor kit.

14 days before: Ovulation occurs 14 days before the next menstrual cycle. This is the best time to have intercourse. The first part of the cycle varies but ovulation is pretty consistent at 14 days before.

When would I be ovulating if my periods are usually 1 week long and at the beginning of each month? My last period was July 4th-11th. My fertile days?

14 days: You usually ovulate around the 14 th day before you start your period. Thus if your periods are 28 days apart, it would be day 14. If they are 29 days then day 15 from the first day you bleed. If 30 days apart then day 16. This is the approximate time and can vary by a day. So you need to determine how many days between in order to determine the day. Ovulation test kits can help

See a doctor: If this is the first time that this has happened to you then I recommend seeing a doctor so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Ovulation: It is not that simple. Some people believe that women cannot figure this out on their own so they use these dates that are not accurate to the individual. Ovulation is the release of the readied egg from the ovary. Many women learn to feel this brief 'pain' as a guide. Others follow their basal body temperature. And others purchase ovulation prediction kits. It is usually just shy of half way.

Is it possible to have a period a week after your last period ended when I have ALWAYS had regular periods? If so will it throw off my ovulation?

Already off: Most women will occasionally have some menstrual irregularity. It may be stress or maybe something else. Since it's ovulation that controls the periods, I suspect that your ovulation got thrown off, and that's why you're having the bleeding. I would give it some time to see whether your periods become regular again.
