I had an abortion now my periods are irregular. Will my ovulation time be any different?

I had an abortion now my periods are irregular. Will my ovulation time be any different?

Yes: If a woman's periods are not regular, then her ovulation dates are likely not regular. That means she cannot accurately predict when she will next ovulate (so should plan ahead for good birth control). Hopefully, the irregularity is temporary, and she should be back on track with regular periods after a couple of months. Otherwise, she can visit her ob-gyn doctor for help. ...Read more

My periods are irregular, 1 month i have periods cycle of 33 days, other month 43 days, am i ovulating after this irregular periods each month, please?

Probably: but it's likely quite difficult to tell when it's occurring with such irregular cycles unless you're taking your basal body temperature and can tell from the 2 day slight increase in temp. Or frequent use of at home ovulation kits. Best of luck! ...Read more

See doctor: There may be some other reasons that you are not having a cycle. You said that the ob/gyn tests were normal, meaning FSH, Estradiol, TSH, prolactin, and of course body mass index. Those are the tests I would run to rule out causes of amenorrhea. You may just have an irregular cycle. If you are trying to conceive that's another issue that obgyn can help you with as well. Good luck! ...Read more

Irregular Periods.starts with mild bleeding for 3 days ends in 9 days.so is there possible to ovulate even when my periods didn't stop.planning pregna?

More info needed?: While not typical, having a period that lasts for 9 days may not be that irregular. So if you are saying that your period starts with 3 days of mild bleeding, but overall bleeding goes on for 9 days, you may be ovulating after that, though perhaps not on day 14. Keep trying, but you may need eval & treatment with your primary provider or OB/GYN ...Read more
