    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!
