Doctor insights on: Difference Between Ovulation And Menstruation

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?

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
