Can I ovulate if I don't menstruate? My cervical mucous does seem to change throughout the month. I haven't had a period in 9 years...

Ovulation


If you have a uterus (e.g., no hysterectomy) and you've not had aperiod in 9 years you can be quite certain you've not been ovulating.

When your cervical mucus is like egg white and 'stretches', THAT is the time to have sex.

I had a period. 8 negative pregnancy tests. Ovulation kit says I'm ovulating, but it is delayed. No cervical mucous. Could I be pregnant?

You are not pregnant


You had a period. That ends the discussion. The definition of a period represents not being pregnant. Eight pregnancy tests cannot be false. You are not pregnant. Ovulation only occurs to prepare for pregnancy. It does not occur if one is pregnant. Ovulation represents an egg that is ready to be impregnated if there were sperm already there ready to enter the egg. You are not pregnant.

Hard to tell


You could be pregnant but these types of symptoms are very non-specific, and despite what the package label says, home pregnancy testing is not as reliable as seeing the doctor and having your blood tested. Good luck!

Pregnancy question


PMS and pregnancy symptoms may be hard to tell apart. Have you had unprotected sex since your last menstrual period? If so, you're a candidate for pregnancy -- but a pregnancy test is needed to know for sure. The results are most reliable once you've missed your period by 7 days.

You can take


pregnancy test now. When pregnant, vaginal discharge is thin, white & milky. But because this is not a diagnostic symptom, a pregnancy test should be taken if you miss your period.

The whitish 'cottage cheese' like discharge without smell is characteristic of a vaginal yeast infection. See your doctor for treatment.

Anovulatory bleeding


Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, I would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals.
