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.

If you are having them between periods, you could be ovulating. Some women can feel when they are ovulating so you might be one of them.

A woman has her period after ovulating, if the egg does not get fertilized. It is possible to ovulate more than once in between periods, and some girls can begin ovulating before their first period. So, it is *possible* to have ovulated and to not have had a period. When women's body weight drops too low, they stop having periods, and stop ovulating, to try to preserve the little body weight they have. However, no matter the reason for missing periods, you could ovulate at any time, and you wouldn't have the period until 2 weeks later, so you can't bank on not ovulating.

Yes because you don't know when you're ovulating. But you may also not be ovulating, so it could go either way.

It may. Having a period for only one day could be a sign that you are not ovulating. Please see a reproductive endocrinologist. They would better be able to diagnose a infertility problem.

Having a period two weeks ago means most likely you were not pregnant at that time. Knowing that you are now ovulating, right on schedule is another strong indication that you are not pregnant.
