In brief: Upredictable

The ovulation usually occurs prior to the menstrual period but the timing can be unpredictable.
There are some studies that show the ovulation can be effected by the presence of other ovulating women in close dormitory living situations. You might consider using a home ovulation testing kit or monitoring your body temperature.

In brief: Luteal phase defect

Lots of possible explanations.
The problem can stem from diminished ovarian reserve (low egg numbers) or weak stimulation of the follicles (a lazy pituitary). Low egg numbers result in an overactive pituitary gland that triggers ovulation early. A lazy pituitary might delay ovulation with a short luteal phase. Uterine problems can also contribute. Expert advice helps in evaluating this.
