This has to do with girls and our bodies. when does ovulation occur?

i put that category because during ovulation,thats when our eggs are most fertile so its easiest and most possible to get pregnant. even after taking Health and all that, idk when it occurs and i cant tell when i am or not and i never have.

It occurs sometime in the two weeks before your period starts, if I'm not mistaken. It's not always the same or the same for every woman I believe, but in general that is when it occurs.

ovulation is when your on your period? when exactly? how long is it for?

For women who have regular cycles, ovulating during your period is highly unlikely. Some women have very irregular cycles, maybe coming once every 3 months or 2-3 times in one month, and these women can have the odd occurrence of ovulating during a period or what is believed to be a period. Still, the chance of ovulating during a period is unlikely. But because sperm can live in the body for 3-5 days, pregnancy could occur from intercourse that takes place during a period.

Ovulation occurs before your menstrual cycle, that's why you usually feel sexually aroused about a week before. When the egg isn't fertilized that's when your uterus sheds it's lining.

Ovulation occurs mid-cycle, at fourteen days, given a twenty-eight day cycle. Give or take a day or two, either way, generally.

14 days after start of period if you have a 28 day cycle?
Report as
Yes. If you menstruate every twenty-eight days, expect ovulation to be day fourteen, give or take a day or two, either way.

i disagree with Askfran, it occurs before your period. Ovulation is a phase that occurs in a female's menstrual cycle, in which a mature egg is released from the ovary into the oviduct. Afterward, it will become available to be fertilized. Concomitantly, the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) is thickened to be able to receive a fertilized egg. If no conception occurs, the uterine lining as well as blood will be shed in menstruation.
but if you mean when [age] then during adolescence
