Can take a test: It is possible you are pregnant. In another week or so, try taking a home pregnancy test. Ovulation can be difficult to predict solely on the timing of menstruation since it can vary a bit from month to month. In addition, a pregnancy can occur even if the man does not ejaculate inside the vagina. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, be sure to discuss contraceptive options with your doctor. ...Read more

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 the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

If I have a 28 day menstrual cycle, when will I ovulate?

If I have a 28 day menstrual cycle, when will I ovulate?

Ovulation: Ovulation occurs 14 days prior to the first day of bleeding. Therefore, in your 28 day cycle ovulation occurs on cycle day 14 counting first day of bleeding as the first day of your cycle. A perfect, consistent 28 day cycle is not necessarily the norm. Most have a range of cycle lengths, say 26-29 days. Ovulation then occurs in the interval of cycle days 12-15. ...Read more

29-31d; day 15-17: I looked at your menstrual history, and your cycles were all between 29 and 31 days long. You count from the 1st day of bleeding, to the following cycles 1st day of bleeding. Ovulation occurs 14 days before the menstrual cycle starts, so your ovulation occurs on day 15 (when the cycles are 29 days apart) on day 16 if they are 30 days, and day 17 for 31 day cycles. Plan accordingly! ;-). ...Read more

Is it possible for one to only ovulated during her menstrual cycle ?

Is it possible for a woman to ovulate more than once within a menstrual cycle?

Possible: It can happen but isn't considered common. In one study in Canada, it was estimated that up to 10% of women ovulate more than one egg in a cycle.

How would a woman determine she is ovulating? How does she determine it while on her menstrual cycle?

There're a few ways: Ask a gynecologist or a reproductive endocrinologist for a Basal Body Temperature chart and to explain how to use a thermometer and a BBT graph and to learn about signs of ovulation. Ask a pharmacist for an "ovulation kit" and for directions on its use. If you have regular 28 to 30 day menstrual cycles, it is quite probable that you ovulate 12 to 14 days before the onset of menstrual bleeding. ...Read more

67 days since last menstrual cycle; the cycle before was 42 days. Am I not ovulating? What could cause the irregular/long cycles? Recommended tests?

All about the egg: Ovulation drives your period. If you don't ovulate, or you ovulate later than usual, your period will come later. This can be the way you are, or it can be affected by age, activity, weight, meds, or hormone issues. Get your thyroid checked, prolactin level, and FSH. If you have acne or facial hair, might want to check two male hormones, testosterone and DHEA - S. Good luck! ...Read more
