Can I ovulate more than once a cycle? Answer: No. You ovulate once a cycle and typically release one egg. But the best way to think of ovulation is as an event that takes place over 24 hours. During that time you can release one or more eggs, which explains, for example, fraternal twins. Here's how it works: Every cycle, about 15 to 20 eggs start to mature in each ovary. Each egg is encased in its own fluid-filled sac, or follicle. A race begins for one of these follicles to become the largest. Ovulation eventually occurs when one ovary releases an egg from the most dominant follicle.

No. ovulation has to occur in order for pregnancy to be possible.

Yes, it is possible not to ovulate. Often you'll still get your period though because the lining of the uterus still has to break down

User Avatar

I think you can. Its possible to have a period without ovulation.. or so I've read on quite a few questions similar to this one.

The 6 days prior to your ovulation is your most fertile period. Even after you ovulate it is still possible to get pregnant within 12 hours of your ovulation time. If you do not know the exact time that you ovulate then it could be possible if you had intercourse the day after your ovulation. You will just need to relax and wait up to 2 weeks to find out if you are pregnant or not.

YES!! In my early twenties I hadn't gotten a period in about a year and I got pregnant for my first daughter. We now have four children and are trying for number five. When periods are irregular ovulation is still very possible; however difficult to predict. I would suggest perhaps investing in an ovulation predictor kit. Good Luck!!

It can be when you first start and your period could be abnormal for you entire period life its nothing to worry about I am 15 and have had it for 1 yr and it is still abnormal so yours could become normal or stay abnormal.

Yes it is possible as sperm can live inside the female for a few days. As long as the sperm is still alive by ovulation, you can get pregnant. That is why days 10 - 15 are known as the fertile period.

Only if you have sex. Most women are past ovulation by the time of their period.

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

User Avatar

no not usually... but some people have been known to have periods until their 8 of 10 weeks pregnant. During ovutaion that is the time where the egg is fertilized by the sperm so its possible to have bleeding or a small irregular period and still be pregnant

User Avatar

It is possible but unlikely. 16 days after ovulation/fertilisation when a home pregnancy test is negative it is pretty much accurate (not false negative) . You should ask for a blood test if you are still concerned! All the best!

You can still get pregnant during your period. While chances are lower than during ovulation, it is still possible. I suggest you contact your doctor so they can discuss birth control options that can still be taken only if you seek immediate medical care.

Yes, its possible for a woman to still have a period when they are pregnant, but it is usually as you say abnormal as it is not an actual period with the lining of the womb being shedded, but just a small amount of blood which could be a darker colour and have many different abnormalities about it. I suggest a pregnancy test to make sure.

Here is advice and input: * That is normal for a woman's body, it doesn't mean you are pregnant. * It is possible. Some women continue to have a large amount of discharge after they ovulate, clear up through the date that the period is due. Others are dry. If you notice something that is abnormal from the way you are each month, it is always possible you are pregnant. Just wait until you are late for your period and take a HPT. Hello. This could simply be left over ovulation discharge. But it could also be pregnancy discharge. Personally I would go with it being ovulation discharge. But if the discharges increases a lot....significantly increases...then see your doctor for a pregnancy blood test.

The ovum lives for 12-24 hours after ovulation so conception occurs within this time. However, sperm may live for up to 5 days so it is possible to have intercourse a few days beforeovulation and still get pregnant. In a regular (28 day) cycle you ovulate on the 14th day and if not pregnant your period will start exactly 14 days after ovulation.

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

User Avatar

It is still possible to be pregnant and have spotting. You should take a pregnancy test to make sure.

User Avatar

The odds are veeeeeery slim, but it's still possible

User Avatar

Not necessarily. You could get your period without having ovulated because the body starts to build up the endometrial layer before ovulation occurs, meaning it still has to shed the layer at some point.

If the question is, "Is it possible to conceive without ovulating?" then the answer is no. However, if the question is, "Is it possible to miss the subtle signs of ovulation and fertility even when charting one's cycle?" then the answer is certainly yes. If you are wondering about pregnancy, take a home pregnancy test. (Most home pregnancy tests can detect the pregnancy hormone two weeks after ovulation, or on the first day of your missed period.) If it is negative and you still haven't gotten your period a week later, repeat the test. If the either test is positive, or if the second test is negative but you still haven't gotten your period, contact your healthcare provider.

if you have missed one period it doesnt mean no ovulation or pregnant you could be lat starting but if you still havent started after a few days of when your period should of started go to your doctor your pharmicest and take a pregnancy test because you could be pregnant.
