Q: When do you ovulate?
A: You'll start to notice signs that you're fertile about five days before you ovulate. Ovulation usually occurs between 12 and 14 days before your period starts (Fehring et al 2006). This is an average, so it could be a couple of days earlier or later. For example, say you have a regular 28-day menstrual cyce. Link to Online Ovulation Calculator .
