Cycles/ thyroid: If your thyroid levels are normal, you should ovulate. Occasionally you don't. If you are not ovulatory with a kit, see an OB GYN for fertility meds. Good Luck.

Yes: If you are bleeding every 16 days then you are not ovulating and cannot get pregnant - normal periods never happen more frequently than every 21 days. You need to see your doctor to find out why you bleed so frequently.
