Once and Yes: The ovary releases an egg (ovulation) a few weeks before your period (menstruation).

Can a woman ovulate & not get a period until 1-2 months after?If so is the just hanging around until a period begins?
Not really : if and when one ovulated one of two things happen. Either you get pregnant or you don't.
