  • Your period isn't just an egg, it's also the lining of your uterus. Track the signs of ovualation.

  • You ovulate before you get your period, so it's possible that you could be pregnant. Take a test to see, there's no other way to know. If you're not, then start charting so you'll know when ovulation happens and can take advantage of it. Read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler and check out for some good tips.

  • That's the exact situation I was in after I had my son. I went on BC and after I stopped it I wasn't getting my period on my own. The BC messed with my hormones. Had to go on provera to induce a period then clomid to make me ovulate. And it worked! I test for pregnancy in a couple days!
