    Ovulation without a period.....
    TashaRowland posted:
    Hi there! I saw my doctor this morning to answer some of my prenatal question but I'm still a little confused. After not having a period in months I started bleeding a couple days ago and it was right around the day that I needed to take out my ring and should've started my period. I don't have periods because I've putting in my rings back to back to prevent having one. Now that we wanna start trying I didn't realize how vital having your period helps in determining ovulation. I am going to get a Basal Thermometer and ovulation kit to help. So my questions are even though I don't have regular periods do I ovulate and can I use this latest mini period as a way to track my ovulation cycle? Thank you!

    Nurse Jane wrote a blog post on Getting Pregnant after the Ring that may be helpful. Also, the Understanding Your Cycle, Fertility, and Ovulation slideshow may have some good information for you, too.

    You may want to join the Trying to Conceive community for more support.

    Good luck!
