Most women who are having menses the same time every month are ovulating. ...Read more

Can ovulation occur 6 weeks prior to a menstruation/bleed? If so what happens to the released egg during that 6 week time period?

6 weeks is very long: Consider an OBGYN exam and while there, ask about the normal process of ovulation and the range that might be expected.
