  • I don't think so. The bleeding is your body's way of flushing the egg out. That's what the doctor said anyway.

  • Yes, you absolutely can. I bled every month without ovulating for three years. There are medicines that can stimulate ovulation.

  • How do you know that you are not ovulating if you have a regular period?

  • You can have breakthrough bleeding if you are not ovulating. That is what a woman has when she is on birth control pills.

  • How can you tell the difference? Sorry but this was a good question.. I would like to know too. I have been TTC for 6 months now with #3 and no luck.

  • I temped and charted my cycles and I knew I was not ovulating. I would get about 2-3 days of spotting and knew that something was not right.

  • im wondering because we had an ectopic pregnancy to rupture 10/26/2008. It was our 3rd baby/pregnancy. My periods are coming every 30 days since November. Just that the flow isnt like it was before pregnancy. I will be testing using those ovulation testers and if nothing good comes out going to doc. How can I be fertile before pregnancy and since the ectopic pregnancy im having to wonder if I will ever get pregnant.

  • I"ve been trying for 2 YEARS now & nothing. I am pretty sure I am not ovulating. I've had no trouble in the past getting pregnant sooo..that is my conclusion. I've about just given up. I cant afford to sock a bunch of money into a fertility dr.
