Does having a late period result in late ovulation? My period came late but im not sure if that means I will ovulate late this time too.

In brief: 14 days before

An easy way to remember ovulation is that it occurs 14 days before your next cycle.
If you know how many days between periods then you can calculate an approximate ovulation date. If your cycles are irregular than predicting ovulation is almost impossible.
