The Big O...

I also have a question about ovulation and AF. Do they go hand in hand? I mean, when you have AF, does that mean you are definitely ovulating? I have been very curious about this. Thanks.

Re: The Big O...

According to the book TCOYF, regular monthly bleeding is not necessarily a sign of ovulation. Technically speaking, ovulation must occur for you to have a menstrual period. However, many women who don't ovulate do have bleeding caused by the breakdown of the lining in the uterus. They call this anovulatory bleeding. Apparently this type of bleeding tends to be really light or really heavy.. not necessarily consistant from month to month where as your menstral period tends to be the same cycle after cycle.<p>[This message has been edited by Mjmoon (edited 02-17-2003).]

Re: The Big O...

Thank you so much for your reply Mjmoon. That helps alot. I have been worried because I don't think nothing is wrong, but when I get to reading posts and thinking, my mind goes wondering. My main concern is that I have been on BCP for 11 years straight. I just bought an OPK(another post)just to make sure I'm ovulating. I've only been off my pills since Jan 8th. We just started ttc this month. Thanks again for the response. Renee.

Re: The Big O...

I know how you feel. I was only on BC for 5 years and I worry too! Charting your temps may be more useful in finding out if you are ovulating.. I hear those OPK's can be very difficult sometimes. Good luck! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
