    How do I know if Ive stopped ovulating?

    Im 44, four kids, and I think Ive stopped ovulating. My periods last about 1-2 days, are light, and I no longer see signs of ovulation (stringy mucus) that I did in my 20s. In fact, I barely notice any discharge at all.
    I only use foam for birth control, (not every time) and its been over a year and no surprise pregnancies.
    I am thinking of getting a tubal done, but if Im not ovulating then why bother?
    Is there a way to know for sure?

    Hi there, my mom stopped her ovulation when she was 40 and it is better if you are going to visit a doctor to be sure of what is going on with your body. It is the safest thing to do. Good luck.
