In brief: Until cycle starts

Hello. Most women will have premenstrual symptoms until their period starts c and sometimes for a few days afterwards.
If your bloating lasts longer, see your regular doctor or OB/GYN for further evaluation.

In brief: Ovulation and sx

At ovulation, especially after 30, more progesterone is produced by the ovary (corpus luteum) than when a woman is a teen or in her twenties.
Progesterone causes "bloating" and after 30 these symptoms (sx.) can mimic early pregnancy. The answer to your question is about 14 days, followed by a menstrual period. If a period is delayed, obtain a serum pregnancy test.
