In brief: Typically three.

Ovulation starts mid-cycle, between your menstrual periods.
If your ovary is fertilized, then you will miss your next period two weeks later (presumably if you are regular). It is important to know that some women have a period, usually light, even when they become pregnant, so it may be thought that the missed period is six weeks later.
