    Over 3 years - NO period - Am I ovulating?

    I a 26 years old with a somewhat complex medical history. However, no one has ever answered or reacted to this question nor factored it into what I am currently dealing with health-wise.

    I have not had a period in over three years. I have not been on birth control for three years. Am I still ovulating? Can you ovulate without the bleeding?
    I'm worried this is going to lead to fertility issues (more than I already have!)

    Anyone experience this??

    If you are not menstruating, it is unlikely you are also ovulating.

    think I could still potentially have a baby one day? (with hormone support)

    i realllllllly need to be able to have a baby.... its my last "dream" that I still have a shot at and haven't had to re-access my expectations based on my health....
    With the hormone support maybe I would start ovulating? Or am I just gonna have thousands of unfertilized eggs camping out in my ovary for the rest of my life? lol

    There is also the possibility of donor eggs ...

    Given how much this is bothering you, don't you think you should see a doctor to find out what is causing you to not ovulate? It might be something that is easy to remedy.

    Good luck
