YES you can still ovulate without a menstrual cycle. Also you can still get pregnant without a period.

Yes, a woman can ovulate twice during her menstrual cycle but it would still be during the ovulation phase of her menstrual cycle. A woman cannot just randomly ovulate, her menstrual cycle controls when she ovulates - typically women will ovulate two weeks before menstruation.To correct a previous answer: Orgasm does not cause ovulation, that's not biologically possible.

Tubal Ligation is when the fallopian tubes are tied, cut, or blocked somehow to stop them from getting pregnant. This does not stop the menstrual cycle as women still ovulate and the uterus lining still plumps and sheds as it would normally.

I am in perimenopause and haven't had a period for almost 3 months. Do I still ovulate if I have no period?

Yes, before you get your period for the first time you ovulate so then you can get pregnant.

There isn't really a "correct" time of your cycle to ovulate. If you are truly irregular, then you can't predict ovulation by counting days. There are other ways to tell, though. You could buy a monitor (though you have to know when to use it), or check out natural family planning methods. Try the Couple to Couple league-- they have books and classes on the sympto-thermal method of fertile and infertile times of the cycle.So, the concise answer to your question is: No.

It may in the sense that you might not ovulate when you expect to. But, just increase the times you are trying and I am sure it will still happen for you.

Whether you still have a menstrual cycle or not depends on the type of IUD you have. A hormonal IUD will stop your menstrual cycle (although you may still bleed), whereas a copper IUD has no impact on your menstrual cycle at all as there are no hormones involved.

No you only produce eggs during your menstrual cycle

As long as you still get your protein and enough calories, then no, it will not affect your menstrual cycle.

bbecause you can only get pregnant if you are ovulating. your period is the time you lining is sheding due to the egg not being fertilized. If you have a regular menstrual cycle then you usually ovulate around the 14th day from the day you started. So if you are having your period you are not likely to ovulate for about another week or more. It could still happen though...if there are some champion sperm living an really really long time and you cycle is very irregular or short then you could ovulate shortly after your period. But that is not usual.

The menstrual cycle begins Day 1 of your period, about half way through the cycle you ovulate and the last day is the day before your next period starts. Day 1 begins the cycle all over again. The last day of your cycle tells you the length of your cycle, on average between 24 and 34 days, although longer and shorter cycles are still "normal".

Yes, the only way a woman will not have her menstrual cycle is if she has gone thru menopause or she has a full hysterectomy.

Hormonal contraception shuts down the menstrual cycle all together.Hormonal contraception stops the menstrual cycle so that you no longer ovulate, thus also in turn you don't menstruate - the idea that hormonal contraception regulates your periods/cycles is thus a myth. People still see regular bleeds on most forms of hormonal contraception, for example on the pill, but this is a withdrawal bleed caused by hormonal drops when going from active to inactive bleeds rather than regular menstruation you'd get with a healthy menstrual cycle.

After three years of being off Depro can it still effect your menstrual cycle?

The contraceptive implant prevents the normal menstrual cycle. Some women have irregular bleeding, and others have no bleeding at all.

Yes, a 45 day cycle is still considered normal. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days but everyone is different and as such a longer cycle is perfectly normal.

Most women ovulate between day 10 and day 18 - earlier and later can still be normal.

An irregular cycle can be a signal of no ovulation, but genarally speaking, you ovulate every time you have a period.

The moon is believed to have an influence on women's menstrual cycles, not least of all because the average menstrual cycle syncs up with the phases of the moon. Women still use the moon to help regulate their menstrual cycles through using lunaception (sleeping in the dark all except for three days when you sleep in the light of the moon, which is when you'd want to ovulate - or artificial light if you want to try for a different cycle pattern). This is also why all the artificial light via computer screens and lighting in the home is believed to contribute to women's cycle problems.

No, if a woman has no menstrual cycle then she cannot get pregnant. The menstrual cycle includes ovulation, no ovulation means no pregnancy. This is how hormonal birth control such as the combination pill works, it suppresses the menstrual cycles in order to stop ovulation to prevent unintended pregnancy.

You can technically get pregnant on any day of the menstrual cycle, but on certain days there is less of a risk. Use a condom, or get on the pill.

It is possible, but not likely - it also depends on where you were in the cycle.

Yes, having a menstrual cycle of 33 days is completely okay. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days, this is only a few days longer than that so still well within normal range.

yes, if you were having them before the procedure, you will have them afterwards.
