Doctor insights on:
Multiple: I'm assuming missed as in long period interval. Ovulation dysfunction primarily falls into two categories: pcos and hypothalamic ovulation dysfunction. Pcos is Insulin mediated increases in ovarian androgens (male hormones) and hypothalamic is physiologically stress induced (exercise, underweight, starvation or low cal diets etc). When you add the stress of fertility treatment=missed ovulation. ...Read more
Can you ovulate when you miss one pill early and then "miss" another pill when you're expected to be ovulating. Except 2nd it's taken 24+hrs later.
Possibly: One should take bcp every day at the same time of day. If you take a pill more than 6-8 hours late, I recommend continued use of the bcp paired with the use of foam and/or condoms for two weeks to minimized the risk of pregnancy. Another option is to use the morning after pill e.g. Plan B if you have intercourse during the 2 weeks after a missed pill. ...Read more

Regular periods?: Women ovulate about 14 days before the start of the next menstrual period (unless they get pregnant or otherwise not have a "next period" for a while). Life is not exact, which means there is some normal variation from woman to woman. But, usually, one can just mark on the calendar when the first day of bleeding of the next period is. Then, count backwards 14 days to the estimated ovulation day. ...Read more
Ovulation timing: If you miss your period, it's difficult to time ovulation.

If you skip your period does that mean you didn't ovulate? And if you don't ovulate, you're not fertile?
Missing a period: The most common reason for "skipping a period", other than pregnancy is not ovulating (releasing an egg). There are a number of reasons this could happen and if it continues, a discussion with your ob/gyn would be helpful. You're correct, if you aren't ovulating you won't get pregnant. ...Read more

If you have sex a week before your fertile day and skip a day, then have sex on your ovulation day is there a chance of being pergnent?
You are most fertile two days before and on the day of ovulation. If you are using an ovulation predictor kit, the test turns positive when it detects the increase in a hormone "telling" the ovary to ovulate, which usually occurs about 36 hours later.
Skipping one day should not affect your chances of conceiving. Skipping 3 days could decrease your chances. ...Read more

Is there any medication to treat no ovulation? My gyn says that I skip periods because I do not ovulate. I am ttc since sept 2012 no success yet.
Yes: Metformin is a drug often used for this purpose. It is a diabetes also used to help control Insulin resistance, which is the root cause of problems with ovulation. Along with metformin, a low carb diet and exercise is important. Sometimes doctors will add the infertility drug, clomid, (clomiphene) if the above treatment plan doesn't work. ...Read more

How to tell if I am still ovulating when I skip the pink pills in birth control and not get my period?
Is it possible to miss menses after ovulating? My last periods was on mar 7th, n I ovulated on clomid, (clomiphene) till nw no menses, n ovulation fr dis month started
No: The simple answer is no. If you truly ovulated then your menses should begin 14 days after this. Sometimes ovulation testing and Progesterone can be incorrect in documenting ovulation. Either you are pregnant, which would be great or the ovulation testing you did was what we call a "false positive" test and you did not ovulate despite the results the testing showed. ...Read more
No: If one didn't miss any pills then they should not have. Skipping periods can occur b/c of the dominance of the progestin hormone effect on keeping the lining of the uterus very thin, so there is not enough tissue/lining built up to bleed during the inactive pill portion of the pack. (other things can cause, but that is common cause of skipped periods on pills). ...Read more

10 days after ovulation neggative test urine n blood? Is tgat it that im not pregnant ir do I wait til I miss my period
Be patiently patient: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
Yes am wondering do your egg have to drop on your ovulation day cause I had sex on 4, 6, 7 of October but miss my ovulation day on the 8th did I miss?
If I miss a BCP at the end of the 1st week and have unprotected sex the same day but double up the next day, do I still ovulate? Am I still protected?
Too soon: I believe that is too soon into taking birth control to be fully protected. But there is no predicting. Keep taking the birth control. You would have been told when you were protected from pregnancy when you were prescribed the pills you are on. Sex the first week should always be protected. ...Read more
