  • Yes. Not all women ovulate every month, but if you are having regular periods that is a pretty good sign that you are most likely ovulating. If you are having irregular and infrequent periods, then chances are you are not ovulating very often.

  • Anon :27, that is not always true...if someone never ovulates, then their period may still come at a regular interval, just a longer time in between.

  • So i could only be ovulating 2 months out of a year and still be having regular periods?

  • Anon:27 here - Sorry about that Jademom. There is no ALWAYS in fertility - just usualies. I should have made that more clear. There are lots of possible combinations.

    OP - It is POSSIBLE you only ovulate two months out of the year, but if your periods are regular and close to 28 days your chances of normal, regular ovulation are pretty good. MOST of the time if you are having normal periods you are also ovulating each cycle (I am saying most, not always). If you have some signs or symptoms that lead you to believe you don't ovulate most months, then you should visit with your doctor.
