Wouldn't it make sense to ovulate before your period because you get your period because you're not pregnant
You do realize that periods recur every month, right? So you ovulate after your last period and before your next one.
The egg only lives a short amount of time. Once the egg is gone, there is no reason to have a built up uterine lining.
No. You ovulate and if the egg is not fertilized that is what causes the period to happen. If the egg was fertilized then a series of hormonal event would occur to stop the period.
You do ovulate before your period. 95% of women ovulate between 12 and 16 days BEFORE their NEXT menstruation.
If you ovulated before your period the egg would get flushed out with the period.
