I have been having irregular periods since ectopic pregnancy six months ago, can I ovulate while on my menstrual cycle?

Yes: Not because you are bleeding vaginally means you are having a regular menstrual bleed. If you ovulated and then bleed 2 weeks later, you are not going to ovulate while bleeding, no. But, if you bleed randomly, you can certainly ovulate while bleeding. ...Read more
