14 days from ovulation to period

Is it true that no matter when you ovulate, you generally always get your period 14 days after ovulation?

No. It really varies depending on when you ovulate in your cycle. The 14 was set up as a "general" cycle. It is said that women with a 28 days cycle ovulate cd 14 (half of the length of the cycle) and then you would start 14 days later. I hope that makes sense, my explanations are rubbish at times! lol.

No, that's not always true. That phase is called the luteal phase and can be pretty long. Mine averages anywhere from 16 at the least and as long as 19. . obviously I have pretty long cycles According to the below webpage the average length is 12-16 days. I've never fit into the 'average' or 'normal' or 'ususally' category. . . .

Check out this link. It's very informative:
