Please answer :) (Warning..Long lol)

Okay so this is what is going on, I havnt had my period in like the past few months, well I took a bunch of test all neg, (yes I did breastfeed but that wasnt it n my baby will only be 9 months) anyways to make the story short..I went to the doc, their test show up neg also then they said it was my thyroid that was off by like 0.01 point (whatever that means lol) and that could cause me not to have my period. Well I was wondering, can I still get preg without having a period? Like do you still ovaulate..I looked online and it said yes but have any of you had this befor? I do want another baby..Like I said my son is 9 months but when he is about a year I would like to try for another (I want them close together)..But can I get preg still like right now? Does it affect ovaulating? O yea and this month well today I was spotting?? My period use to come on the 24th of every month, so idk whats going on??

  • BFing sure does mess your period up. But yes, you still can get prego even without a period.

  • Yes, you can get pregnant without having a period first. The period comes after ovulation. Maybe you are now pregnant and it was implantation spotting. What did the doc say about treating your thyroid? Good luck!

  • You have to ovulate before you can have a period. Ovulation is the releasing of an egg. A period is the flushing out of unfertilized egg. So its entirely possible that if you catch your first ovulation after a pregnancy that you can get pregnant again without having a period.
