  • yes you can still ovulate all that means is that your ovarie release a egg. thats why if your breasfeeding they tell you to still use some form of b/c cuz even if you dont get your period back you still can get pregnant.

  • Well its been almost 2 yrs. since I gave birth to our son and my period are off and on. So when I dont get my period for a couple of months, does that still mean that I can get pregnant?

  • yes it is possible. But most of the time no period means no ovulation.

  • yes when u're breastfeeding, u could ovulate without knowing simply cos u've never seen ur period since u put to bed. That explain why someone could take in again while her period had not returned. This is why Billings method encourages charting even while u're brestfeeding
