Doctor insights on: Difference Between Ovulation And Menstruation

Share

Menstruation (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

Wat is the major difference b/w mensturation period and ovulation and is  delay of mensturation preiod can any problem if it take more the 25-28 days?

Big difference: When a woman bleeds, this is her menstrual period. Biologically, it indicates that she did not get pregnant that cycle.

Ovulation is in the middle of her cycle usually about 14 days before her menstrual period (bleed). This is when she is most fertile. ...Read more

If menstruation comes does it meani ovulated?..

If menstruation comes does it meani ovulated?..

Timing off by ~2wks: Ovulation usually occurs two weeks before Menstruation. If the egg is fertilized and implantation occurs, the menstrual cycle is halted and changes occur to support pregnancy. Without fertilization, the uterine lining is shed and the menstrual cycle starts again. So, to answer your question, if "menstruation comes", it means you ovulated about 2 weeks before but didn't get pregnant. ...Read more

Is it possible to ovulate 3 to 4 days right after menstruation?

Is it possible to ovulate 3 to 4 days right after menstruation?

Yes: Ovulation usually occurs day 14 of a 28d day cycle. So if menses is 10 days long you would be ovulating about 3-4 days later. Also, if you cycle length is shorter, e 21-27, ovulation occurs sooner(day 7-13).. A good guide is subtract 14 days from when you would expect your next period based on your cycle and that is when you will ovulate. ...Read more

If I have weird menstruation does that mean I am not ovulating?

If I have weird menstruation does that mean I am not ovulating?

Not necessarily : Unfortunately irregular menses does not necessarily mean you are not ovulating. This is why the natural rhythm method for birth control does not work reliably at all. I would not rely on this as a method of predicting ovulation. ...Read more

I feel like i ovulate twice in between menstruation, i've read that's how it happens but most women believe it happens once during cycle. What's true?

I feel like i ovulate twice in between menstruation, i've read that's how it happens but most women believe it happens once during cycle. What's true?

Ovulation pain varie: A study was done looking at ovulation pain in women using ultrasounds and blood tests to document the actual ovulation time. Some felt ovulation pain before ovulation as the ovary swells, some as they were actually ovulating and some after ovulation occurred. You may be feeling two of the sensations separately to make it seem like you are ovulating twice. Ovulating twice per month would be rare. ...Read more

Is getting a peak reading on OPK every month followed by normal menstruation a good sign of ovulating regularly? How soon after peak will i ovulate

Is getting a peak reading on OPK every month followed by normal  menstruation a good sign of ovulating regularly? How soon after peak will i ovulate

Yes!: Once a urine lh surge is seen, lh has been in your circulation for around 10 to 12 hours prior to being excreted by the kidneys. From the onset of a pituitary surge , it takes around 40 to 44 hours. Thus 44-12= and 40-10= [30-32 hrs- range] will be the presumed time that the ovary actually releases the egg. Because testing is typically once to twice a day, that range expands to +/-12-24hrs. :)-. ...Read more

Halli i want to know I have my menstruation for 2 months 26 day cycle 1 month 25 last month 23 is it normal?Is it possible to not ovulate that months?

Cycle: Any cycle length above 21 days to 40 days is ok. Why it is changing every month, it's hard to tell, but it doesn't mean you don't ovulate. To be sure, you can always recur to ovulating testing. ...Read more

Hi doc my friend gets her menstruation every 21 days when do she ovulate?

When do I ovulate: Your friend can monitor her basal body temperature by measuring the temperature the first thing in the morning and recording it on a chart. It will appear obvious when ovulation occurs. Also, she can begin a urine LH testing about 21 days before the onset of the expected next menstrual period. The test strip will change color the day before ovulation. ...Read more

I am 31 years old. My menstruation cycle was in aug-19th, sept-13th and oct-6th. Is my cycle regular. When will i ovulate. When can I conceive.   ?

Mid cycle: Women usually ovulate in the middle of their cycle. It depends on your cycle length. You're describing your cycles as less than 28 days. Thus you probably are ovulating on day #12 or #13 with day #1 being when your start your period. I recommend you have intercourse days #10-14. ...Read more

My TSH is 21 uiu/ml, my menstruation cycle is regular, i ovulated last month on 17th day of my cycle. Can i try to concieve? Or wait til TSH is normal

Wait and Fix TSH: We have good information that the baby will be healthier if the TSH is < 2.5. Your value is quite high and should be treated before conception. Your gyn, pcp or an endocrinologist can assist you. It should only take a few weeks to control the thyroid issue but the wait is worth it. (link: http://bit.Ly/1awuret). ...Read more

Why do I need to deficate more during ovulation and menses?

Why do I need to deficate more during ovulation and menses?

Well, that's : A tough one. It's likely due to the overall cramping that occurs during those times and the prostaglandins involved with the uterine contraction. Could be other things but that's my guess. Do you have alternating constipation and diarrhea? It could be ibs ( irritible bowel) that gets worse with anxiety around the period. Gd luc. ...Read more

Is it possible for woman to ovulate without having her menses?

Is it possible for woman to ovulate without having her menses?

Yes: This is why some women get pregnant without knowing. The bottom line is that there is no absolutely "safe" time to make love without contraception. The other factor here is that sperm can live quite a long time. A week is the standard answer, but I am sure there are some that live longer. ...Read more

If I have a 28days cycle and my menses delays for 5days, when will I likely ovulate?

If I have a 28days cycle and my menses delays for 5days, when will I likely ovulate?

5-7 days: 5-7 days before and after day 14. Most likely 2 days before/after day 14. But it can vary month-to-month. Remember, sperm can live up to 3 days inside a female, so add 3 days for possible conception in advance of likely ovulatory days. Basal body temp generally slightly rises during ovulation. Take temp upon awakening every morning. If temp rises one degree from average around mid-cycle... ...Read more

Always had regular menses, lasting 5 days, every 28.Now irregular, long cycle w/heavy long bleeding during time of "ovulation." i'm 45. What is cause?

Peri-menopause: It is likely that you are entering the peri-menopause. The years prior to menopause women will frequently complain of longer cycles, irregular bleeding, missed periods. See your gyn to confirm that this is what is happening to you and to rule out other conditions that can cause heavy bleeding and mid-cycle bleeding. This is very treatable. ...Read more
