Ovulation: Women can feel their ovulation. This is called Mittelschmerz. Ovulation does not vary widely and occurs just shy of halfway through your cycle. You don't need a test or just. You need to learn the simple facts about this, the most important part of your menstrual cycle. In a 28 day cycle ovulation is on day 13/14. Sperm cause pregnancy on potentially days eight to fourteen. Simple. Easy. ...Read more

If I don't take the conception pill at the same time everyday, what is the possibility that i'll ovulate?

If I don't take the conception pill at the same time everyday, what is the possibility that i'll ovulate?

Chance is low: It is best to take the birth control pill at about the same time each day. If the timing is off by some hours the chance of ovulation is very low. If a pill is 12-24 hrs late there is a small chance of ovulation. The chance increases if the pill is 1 or 2 or 3 days late. Take the pill at about the same time to be most effective, but don't worry if some hours off. ...Read more

If I don't have a ovulation kit what's the next best thing?

If I don't have a ovulation kit what's the next best thing?

Basal Body Temp: Basal body temperature (bbt) with a special thermometer works, but the temperature rises after you ovulate. You test before you move out of bed each morning. Ovulation predictor kits are more useful when ttc as they go positive 1-1.5 days before you ovulate, so you know your most fertile days. If you have very irregular periods don't do bbt, see a fertility md to find out why you're irregular. ...Read more

Abnormal bleeding: You may have some changes in your menstrual cycles that are normal but you are still ovulating. Some women will have some spotting for days after their cycle ends, especially if you are using the pill. I would monitor your cycles for a while to see if this is a normal pattern for you. If it becomes a pattern, I would recommend you talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more

If I Don't Have Sex On The Day I Take My Ovulation Test. Will I Still Be Ovulating 3 Days Later? & If I Take Another Test & It's + Is It True?

If I Don't Have Sex On The Day I Take My Ovulation Test. Will I Still Be Ovulating 3 Days Later? & If I Take Another Test & It's + Is It True?

Stop test after +: You stop doing ovulation kits after it turns positive because it will stay positive for awhile. The hormone it detects lingers leading to the positive result. If you are having regular periods and your ovulation tests show you are ovulating there is simply no value or utility in repeating them. Have sex after a positive test to maximize chances of getting pregnant ...Read more

How to make a baby: Sperm have to be ready to meet an ovulated egg. Thus sperm left in the vagina on any or all of the five days before ovulation are the sperm most likely to cause pregnancy. Sperm left in the vagina on the day of or after ovulation will not reach the egg in time to impregnate it. ...Read more

I almost never have my period, does that mean I don't ovulate?

I almost never have my period, does that mean I don't ovulate?

Most probably: Most probably you do not ovulate. At this point in your life, a failure to ovulate (often caused by a hormonal problem in your hypothalamus, pituitary ovarian functions) is the most likely explanation for the fact that you "almost never have your period". There are other causes of "secondary amenorrhea" which seem less likely to apply to you. It would be wise to consult a Gyn endocrinologist. ...Read more

I don't ovulate but I still get my period. Is there anything I can take to stop my period?

I don't ovulate but I still get my period. Is there anything I can take to stop my period?

Gynecology: First it is very odd to hear a 19 year old tell us that she does not ovulate. There must be much more to your story than you are letting us know here. Ovulation drives menstrual periods so I think given your history this question is best answered in person by your gynecologist. ...Read more

When you ovulate do you always see egg white mucus? Because I only saw it one time! So does that mean I don't ovulate every month?

When you ovulate do you always see egg white mucus? Because I only saw it one time! So does that mean I don't ovulate every month?

No: Cervical mucus is over-rated as a test of ovulation. It is variable between women and in the same woman month to month. It was helpful when there was nothing better but now we have ovulation prediction tests at the pharmacy without a prescription. This is a much better way to see if you are ovulating and when. Most women who are having menses the same time every month are ovulating. ...Read more

Me and my boyfriend had sex on 11th 12th 13th and 14th but not 15& 16th I ovulate on 16 or 17 if I don't have sex on them days could I still be prega?

Me and my boyfriend had sex on 11th 12th 13th and 14th but not 15& 16th I ovulate on 16 or 17 if I don't have sex on them days could I still be prega?

Possible: Anytime you have unprotected sex, there is a possibility of pregnancy. People are not as predictable as we might like and both sperm and egg have been known to be viable longer than expected.
Always use condoms for std protection and another effective birth control method when you have sex, if being a parent is not something you want at this time! ...Read more

Is it ok to take Clomid (clomiphene) without a period first. I don't ovulate on my own so I don't know when my next period will be.?

Is it ok to take Clomid (clomiphene) without a period first. I don't ovulate on my own so I don't know when my next period will be.?

No: Your physician will induce a period before starting clomid (clomiphene). You also need to know if your uterine lining is thick or thin from not ovulating. You would enjoy the book I wrote about my own fertility treatments, including clomid (clomiphene). It is called tick tock and you can get it at www. Ticktock. Ws.
Good luck! ...Read more

Not ovulating: Not ovulating, or releasing an egg every month, can affect having regular menstrual periods and the ability to become pregnant. Both of these situations can be addressed with medical treatment through a healthcare provider like a gynecologist. Women have both conceived and achieved normal menses through medical treatment. ...Read more
