You are probably not ovulating if you haven't had a period. But you ovulate before you have your period so you could start at anytime. If you second child is still really young or you are breast feeding, this could be the reason you haven't had a period yet. If your child is a few months old and you aren't breast feeding, talk to your doctor. They may be able to help you begin to ovulate and have periods. Not having a period isn't normally healthy. If you don't want anymore kids, don't use not having a period as Birth Control. It may not work.

When you say 'no longer' perhaps you are menopausal.

As hormones fluctuate so much around this time as a 'rule of thumb' if you are under 50 use contraception for 2 years after your last period, if you are 50 and over use contraception for one year after your last period.

Womens bodies clean out their system once a month, and usually this is when the egg from ovulation is cleaned from the vaginal area.

What happens if a woman's body if she does not ovulate and don't have periods?

There are two ways to look at this question... the first is WHY is she not having periods/ovulating? When a woman's weight drops too low then she will stop having periods/ovulating because she doesn't have enough body fat support the pregnancy. Also, historically if a woman is that thin it is because she is starving, and the body doesn't want to produce offspring during a time of little/no food since that will mean a larger drain on the females resources, thus she would die of starvation sooner. Now if someone is on a birth control that is keeping her from period/ovulating then that is another story entirely. Research has shown that there is no harm to women who take their birth control straight through without 'resting' and having a period. Although it would effect the balancing cycle of the body and would likely make it take longer to get pregnant when the woman went off of the birth control. Now, if a woman is over 16, and less than 40 years of age, not on birth control, and of a normal weight... if THAT woman has suddenly stopped having periods, then she needs to go to the doctor. Especially if it has been more than 4 months since the last period. There could be something wrong going on, and it would need to be checked out by a physician. Women who have had hysterectomies (sp?) do longer have periods or ovulate because they don't have the body parts to do so, nor have the chemicals being made in their bodies. They go into 'menopause' at that point. Women can go into 'early menopause' but usually it doesn't happen until after the age of 40 or 50 (varies).
