    Ovulation USUALLY happens ABOUT 14 days BEFORE the next period is due.

    How long your bleeding lasts means NOTHING.

    What matters is how many days between the first day of the current period until the first day of the next period.  

    So - how many days are usually between your periods.  

    Ovulation should happen ABOUT 14 days before your next period will happen.  This is ONLY based on AVERAGES and ovulation can be anything from 10 to 16 days before the next period.  

    If you are trying to become pregnant, then having sex every other day during the days right before you think ovulation may happen increases the chances of success.

    If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, then this is only guessing and shouldn't be a substitute for REAL birth control.

    Depends on how long your luteal phase is. Average is anywhere from 10-17 days.
