When am i most fertile? Is there an age when women tend to be more fertile? Also, when is the most fertile time of the month, right before your period?

Younger : Younger women are more fertile. Women are most fertile from the time soon after their first period (age 11-13) through their early to mid twenties. Fertility then gradually decreases into the 30's and severely in the early 40's. There have been cases of women getting pregnant into the late 40's naturally. The most fertile time of the month is right after ovulation (when the egg is released from the woman's ovary). This occurs in the middle of the cycle, approximately 14-17 days after the last period. If pregnancy doesn't occur, then the next period occurs predictably ~2 weeks after leading to the average 23-28 day menstrual cycle. ...Read more

If you bleed mid cycle after your period does that indicate your most fertile days and does the day you start to bleed indicate the release of an egg?

Mid-cycle spotting: Spotting or bleeding mid-cycle is likely to be around the time of ovulation, when estrogen hormone levels drop. Progesterone hormone 'kicks in' to stop the bleeding. If you have regular cycles, an ovulation predictor kit (opk) is much more reliable than your spotting for finding your fertile days - 3 days starting with a positive opk. If your cycles are irregular, see a fertility specialist (rei). ...Read more

I have irregular periods, wondering if you still get your period while on the pillwith the white pill does this mean you will be-fertile after the pill?

I have irregular periods, wondering if you still get your period while on the pillwith the white pill does this mean you will be-fertile after the pill?

Period on the pill?: A period occurs while on birth control, during the inactive (placebo) pills, because there are no hormones in inactive pills. Sometimes there's some spotting while on the active pills, but if a woman is taking her pills correctly, she is still presumed protected against pregnancy even with spotting between periods. If she was young and fertile before using pills, she's probably fertile afterward. ...Read more

Can AED have a effect on your period?

Can AED have a effect on your period?

Unclear question: If you used an AED on someone, it would not affect your period.
If AED was used on you, you have more serious issues than a delayed period.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
