That depends entirely on your individual cycle, and the only way you can know for certain when you ovulate is by charting over a few months -- even then, it's not reliable if you haven't been menstruating for about a decade.

If you're trying to avoid pregnancy, condoms and birth control of some additional form are your best bed; if you're trying to *get* pregnant, charting and visiting your doctor is your best bet. I can give you firsthand experience in both, and believe me, it's a LOT easier to take a pill every day or insert a ring every once in a while than it is to pinpoint when you ovulate.
