Two weeks prior to the onset of a menstrual period is actually the most fertile time in the menstrual cycle. This usually occurs on Cycle 16-18 if you count the first day of your period as Cycle Day 1.

Is it possible to become pregnant without having a period? I am a 30 year old female that is trying to conceive but get disappointed all the time. I have a six year old son and I don't remember having a period when he was conceived. I didn't find out abou

If


If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months without any luck, then you should call your OB/Gyn to discuss - especially if you are not having a regular period. There are lots of other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, illness, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. All of these things can also affect your ability to get pregnant. Give your doctor a call.

Theoretically, a woman can be fertile during her menstrual flow or just after it stops. If it is a 21 day cycle and 7 days of menstrual flow, ovulation probably occurs just after the period and you can get pregnant a few days before ovulation.

I hope so! You should check a home pregnancy test. If it is positive, and/or if the pain continues/worsens and/or if you start bleeding, you should consider seeing your doctor for more testing (blood pregnancy/hormonal testing, possibly ultrasound). Dont ignore significant pain for too long, because rarely it could signal something worrisome, like a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy. Good luck!

Possible


It is possible to be pregnant and a pregnancy test can confirm that. You may also have an ovarian cyst, a fibroid, endometriosis, or pain related to your irregular periods. or the pain may not even be GYN related. So probably a good idea to check a pregnancy test and then see a GYN next.

Infertility


Technically, the definition of infertility under 35 years old is no pregnancy after 12 months of trying. There are a number of things that can play a role in infertility that are too many to list here but a consultation with an OB/Gyn or a fertility specialist would help.
