Menstrual Cycle (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 my period is irregular, an example 1 month 30-34 days and the the next is 26-28 days how can I tell when i'm ovulating?

If my period is irregular, and occurs every 2 weeks ish (usually a week between) would my ovulation dates be the week i'm not on my period?

If my period is irregular, and occurs every 2 weeks ish (usually a week between) would my ovulation dates be the week i'm not on my period?

Probably not: Ovulation occurs about 2 weeks before a period starts, so if you are ovulating every time (and that's doubtful), you are ovulating at the beginning of the previous period. You should see a doctor; bleeding every two weeks is too frequent! ...Read more

Rescan: Dating is most accurate with a first trimester ultrasound AFTER 6 weeks. If just the sac was seen, you were probably 4-5 weeks along. Your doc will probably follow your blood levels of hCG and rescan you in 1-2 weeks. Good luck. ...Read more

My period is irregular & last month the cycle was 35 days, what days of this month will I ovulate? Started my period this month on the 9th -15th

Hard to guess...: If a woman has "irregular periods", and she means that her menstrual cycles vary in length from month to month, then it is very hard to tell when she will ovulate next. Normally, a woman ovulates about 2 weeks before the first day of bleeding of her NEXT menstrual period. If she cannot predict that first day of her upcoming period, then she won't be able to predict when she will ovulate. ...Read more

If my period is irregular how do I know when I'm ovulating I'm on bc pills now by the way?

You are not: Birth control pills work primarily by suppressing ovulation; therefore, if you are on BCP, most likely you are not ovulating at all. If a woman's periods are irregular, then she is most likely having anovulatory cycles and is not ovulating. It is very unusual for a woman to have irregular periods while taking BCP. If you are continuing to have irregular periods on BCP, you need to see your Dr. ...Read more

Difficult to say: If your cycles are irregular, it is difficult to predict ovulation. We can retrospectively tell when ovulation occurred by counting back from your menses. Your menses will always start 14 days after ovulation. It is the 1st half of the cycle that varies. Of course if you are irregular, you may not be ovulating each month. See your gyn for an evaluation and treatment. Best of luck! ...Read more
