What Is The Ovulation Cycle
It's confusing: One of the reasons a woman can have an irregular menstrual cycle is because she is ovulating at different times in her cycle. In general women ovulate about 2 weeks after ovulation.

Urine ovulation kit.: It is not easy to know for sure you are ovulating. Partly, it depends on how regular and far apart your periods are.
