Hi, Anon, and thank you for your question.

No, sex during your period doesn't affect your ovulation. Your ovulation is based on timing from specific hormones in your body that go through an entire process each month. It usually happens between about day 10-14 of your period, depending on how long your cycles are. Are you trying to conceive?
