Can I ovulate during my period?

Can I ovulate during my period?

No: No, you don't ovulate during your period. If you count back 14 days from the first day of your period, you can get an idea when you ovulated. Most women have a 28 day cycle, and they ovulate on cycle day 14 (cycle day 1 is the first day of your period), then they have their period 14 days later (cycle day 28). ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

My menstrual cycle comes at different times of the month. Can I ovulate shortly after my period? I think there is a possibility I may be pregnant.

My menstrual cycle comes at different times of the month. Can I ovulate shortly after my period? I think there is a possibility I may be pregnant.

Normal: There is some normal variation in cycle length and even regular cycles seldom start the same day each month since months vary in length. Ovulation usually occurs 14 days before your period starts. This can mean that conception occurs with intercourse the week after your period ends. If in doubt, do a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I got one shot of Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) and was on for 3 mths. How soon can I get pregnant? Can I ovulate without getting my period?

I got one shot of Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) and was on for 3 mths. How soon can I get pregnant? Can I ovulate without getting my period?

Yes: You may not have any bleeding PRIOR TO the first time you ovulate after Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone). Unless you are pregnant, you should have a period AFTER each time you ovulate. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is only 'guaranteed' for 3 months; however, it lowers your chances of getting pregnant for up to 8 months. However, you can still 'try' to get pregnant anytime you are ready. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is not known to harm baby. ...Read more

Please how can I know my ovulating period, my period goes this way, march 1st, april 2nd, may 26th, June 20th?

Unsure: Your periods are not regular enough to predict when ovulation will occur. Your cycles vary from 25 to 62 days. With the average cycle length being 28 to 30 days it is likely that ovulation occurs 14 to 16 days after the last period started. For you the range would be 11 to 48 days after the last period started - just too wide a range to predict. You should see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

How can I calculate my ovulation if my period does not come back after i gave birth 6 mnths ago, ?

Not realistic: It's not really realistic to try to calculate your ovulation until you actually have a period. It could be days, weeks or months. If you're breastfeeding, that, too, changes the equation. Normally we would recommend an ovulation predictor kit, but not good idea right now. You can track basal body temp, but i would wait for first period. ...Read more

Fertiltiy Window: The right time is near the time you are ovulating. If you have regular cycles at 28-30 day intervals, that is around day 12 - 16 of your cycle. You can use an ovulation predictor kit starting on day 10 of your cycle to see when is the most optimal time. ...Read more
