Can you

Ovulate without a period? I know ovulation happens, then your period comes 14 days later.... But Can you ovulate, then not get a period, then ovulate again the next month? I feel like I've been ovulating the last few months but still no sign of my period yet? Curious.... Tis all

My reproductive biology knowledge is a bit rusty :wink:, but I think the answer is no - if you ovulate (release an egg), and it isn't fertilised and implanted (i.e. you don't fall pregnant), then the body goes through menstruation to make way for the next round of ovulation/fertilisation/implantation etc.

You can definitely have an anovulatory period, though - i.e. have bleeding, but not actually have released an egg. Apparently it's quite common in the first few cycles post-partum for many women.

FWIW, I had weird quasi-ovulation-type signs, and some random spotting here and there, for a couple of months before actually getting AF back. Now, after a few months of AF, things are pretty much back to 'normal'.

Apparently it's quite common to have weird patterns of CM in the lead up to your fertility returning. Eg it's quite common for breastfeeding women to have several patches of fertile CM without ovulating. It probably means your body is warming up to ovulate sometime soon

I feel the same. I'd swear I ovulate and have periods, except that there is no bleeding. Been going on for about 4-5 months now, it's very regular and driving me insane.

Maybe that's it then... My body is warming up... Because I'm getting CM thinking, yep I'll have my period in 2 weeks and it goes by again... I'm baffled because I had my period back already with ds1 at about 10 mths and I swear he fed more than ds2!!

I was just wondering, as I've been having some mucousy discharge the past week but am yet to return to fertility- did you ladies Fellare and marie7 end up getting a period yet? We're you still breastfeeding and how much? I'm still feeding my 14month 4+ times a day.

I did, I got a period a month after posting that. They are not regular, though. Marie is pregnant, so certainly ovulated at some point :lol:

I am still breastfeeding about 200+ times a day and then some more overnight. It doesnt seem to have a huge impact on periods.

Oh, and when my ds2 was 12mths I was defiantly feeding at least 6 times a day still and night feeding and it didn't effect my period return, however I do remember trying to re jig my period to come by night weaning for a short period of time at 12mths which obviously did the trick! But then I went back to feeding all night again but my periods stayed around :wink:
