If I got my period today how many days from the day my period started will I ovulate?

If I got my period today how many days from the day my period started will I ovulate?

It depends on...: It depends on the length of one's cycles. Most women ovulate around day 14 of a 28 day cycle. That would mean day 16 of a 30 day cycle, or day 12 of a 26 day cycle. Think of the math as cycle length - 14 = ovulation day. ...Read more

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. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Can ovulation happen during your period or day after? Took ovulation Test today and positive. Ended period yesterday

Can ovulation happen during your period or day after? Took ovulation Test today and positive. Ended period yesterday

Depends: Ovulation can occur as soon as 7 days after a period starts. So if the period lasts 7 days, then ovulation could occur at the end of the period. In that case the cycle length would be 21 days because the period always starts 14 days after ovulation. The average cycle is 28 to 30 days which means ovulation happens on cycle day 14 to 16. The first day of the period is the first day of the new cycle ...Read more

Is it possible to ovulate 7 days after you start your period? I came on 4th dec and have just done a positive ovulation stick today 11th dec?

Is it possible to ovulate 7 days after you start your period? I came on 4th dec and have just done a positive ovulation stick today 11th dec?

Very abnormal: In order to ovulate that early after your period your ovaries would have to be working poorly. As women get closer to menopause that can happen. And young women going into ovarian failure can have the same thing happen. So if you have reason at age 31 to believe that is going on I would recommend seeing a fertility specialist immediately! ...Read more

I just started my first period today since my d&c procedure 28 days ago. Can I expect to ovulate? I did not ovulate between the d&c and this period.

Ovulation: Clarify: It is highly unlikely that you are ovulating this soon after your period ends and thus you cannot get pregnant during those dates that you describe. But, since you failed to include details on when you ovulate in your cycle in your question it is very hard to give you any kind of direct or valid answer. ...Read more

I had a positive ovulation test on Tuesday, I have started my period today, five days after. How can this happen??

I had a positive ovulation test on Tuesday, I have started my period today, five days after. How can this happen??

Test not accurate: "Many women think that they ovulate on day 14, but 14 is an average, and most women will actually ovulate on a different day of the menstrual cycle. Your day of ovulation will vary from cycle to cycle. Some women claim to feel a twinge of pain when they ovulate, but many feel no sensation at all and there’s no other sign that you are ovulating.

See link for additional details. Feel good! ...Read more

Fertile period yesterday. Ovulate today. Ejaculated inside me yesterday. Possible won't get period at the end of the month?

PossibleProbablePop!: Well, anything is POSSIBLE, right? But how PROBABLE is it that you'll not have your next period (assuming you mean pregnant)? Well, more probable than if you'd have had sex during any other time period (excuse pun). But remember, it's POSSIBLE to get pregnant at ANY time (really! Those eggs and spermies have their own agendas), just with variable probabilities. Sounds like you have a higher probabity ...Read more

My period irregular but usually it's 26 days. Today the 11th day of my cycle. I took an ovulation test. It's negative is it too late? Or re-do it tomorrow

Check again: I would recommend that you check another ovulation test tomorrow. If your cycles were predictably 26 days then ovulation would occur day 12 (according to textbooks) but it could be between day 10 and 14 or not at all. Keep checking! ...Read more

Yes. ..: You're ovulating much later than average, but you may still get pregnant. If you're not tring to conceive use birth control. If ttc see a rei specialist if you stay irregular to check you for conditions that affect ovulation like polycystic ovarian syndroms (pcos), thyroid or prolactin problems, low egg supply (diminished ovarian reserve) or low hormone levels from stress, exercise or weight loss. ...Read more

Prob. Ovulating: You probably ovulated - you should be looking for a 0.5 to 1 degree rise in basal body temperature (bbt) from the first half of your cycle to the second half, going up just after you ovulate. The rise is more important than the numbers. Take BBT before moving out of bed in the morning. If BBT is not working for you ovulation predictor kits are more straightforward if you have regular cycles. ...Read more

Body temperature: Basal body temperatures are not a very accurate way to predict ovulation for most people. There is lots of variation. Ovulation predictor kits are available and are more accurate. We can not conclude when your cycle will come based on a slight decrease in body temperature. ...Read more

YES!!!: You are experiencing the discharge of the thick cervical mucus that occurs precisely on ovulation day!

The purpose of this gooey material is to promote the capture, and successful "swimming" of fertile sperm into the cervical canal and, ultimately, into their fallopian tube passage journey to wherever the egg is patiently awaiting to be fertilized!

Regular period on 7th for 4 days. Day 12 (the 18th) got my period again (weird)! Mostly brown with red here & there. Today is the 3rd day. Ovulation?

DUB: It sounds less like ovulation (brown discharge/old blood suggests non-ovulation) and more like dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) which often results from hormonal imbalances during menstrual cycle. DUB is treated by trying to regulate the hormones. You don't mention contraception, but DUB is often treated by birth control pills for ongoing regulation of hormones. Pregnancy should be excluded. ...Read more
