20% of women do not ovulate at the expected time, so it is possible to ovulate 5 days after your period.

Best wishes

If you have a 26-27 day period, you would most likely ovulate on day 10 to 14 since your last period. It is possible to ovulate on day 5, but then your period should start about 14 days later (that is how long it takes for the corpus luteum to stop producing progesterone which keeps the period away untill the embrio has implanted and produces it's own hormones).

You are probably just experiencing some PMS.

Yes you could ovulate on day 5 after your period........
It is a bit early to do a pregnancy test, and you have not missed your period, so maybe wait for your period.

Good luck
