In : In order to become pregnant, either ectopic or intrauterine (normal location of pregnancy) sperm has to be introduced in or near the vagina. There are multiple situations where women have conceived without penetration (penis inside of vagina). Your bleeding and cramping are likely due to the hormonal changes from the pill, which should go away within 3 months of starting the pill. You can take an early pregnancy test to be sure you are not pregnant, however i think it is due to the hormonal changes. Call or see your doctor for further questions or concerns. ...Read more

The : The important thing about when to start an ovulation predictor kit is to make sure you start it before you expect to ovulate. The number of days from when you ovulate to when your period starts is very fixed. It is not longer than 14 days. The number of days from when you start your period to when you ovulate can be variable. The best way to figure out when to start is to take your shortest cycle length and subtract 16 days. For example, if your cycle varies between 32 and 36 days, you should subtract 16 from 32 to get 16. You would start testing on cycle day 16 with the first day being the day of an actual flow (not spotting). If your cycles are always 36 days then you would start on cycle day 20. Hope this helps! good luck! ...Read more
