You are most fertile about 12 to 14 days after you have had your period. There is a way that you can find out when it is, precisely, that you ovulate however. Firstly, take your temperature every morning when you wake up. Before you get out of bed and before you use the bathroom, you need to take your temperature. Remember this temperature, and when you see a drop you will be about to ovulate. The temperature will continue to increase on the following couple of days, and will eventually come around 0.4 to 0.6 degrees higher than the temperature you usually record.

You should also try and observe any discomfort you have in the abdominal area. Some women will experience sharp pains in the lower part of their abdomen when they start ovulating. You can also get a rather severe pain in the side or at the bottom of your back. The pain generally lasts a rather brief time, though.

You should also be aware of any discharge. When you are about to start ovulating, the cervical mucus will become much thicker and more like water. However, when you’re actually ovulating then you should expect the cervical mucus to be more like a raw egg white, in looks and in its consistency.

You should also be sure to notice any changes in cervix colour, which is yet another indication of you ovulating. The normal colour of the cervix should be pink, however, when you ovulate the colour changes to a more pale colour, or slightly blue. If you are trying to conceive and you are having trouble then see your doctor. They will be able to provide you with even more help and perhaps find out why it is you can’t seem to conceive, even during ovulation.

Ovulation occurs prior to each month's period under normal circumstances. When the egg is not fertilized, the uterus then sheds its lining--which your body prepared as place for a fertilized egg to embed itself and begin to grow an embryo/baby.

After your period, the cycle begins again... your body starts to create a lining in the uterus that will support a fertilized egg and nourish the embryo.

You ovulate roughly 14 days after the 1st day of your last period. You have a 3-5 day period in which you are fertile, And sperm last about 5 days.

Most women ovulate 10-14 days after the first day of their period. There is a test that is similar to a home pregnancy test that you can purchase at a drug store for under $15 that can help you see exactly when you ovulate as all women are different. Hope this helped!

You ovulate before your period. Ovulation is when the egg goes into the tubes, remember ovulation before menstruation.
