Conceiving without periods?


Hi,

I wondered if you could help me with some advice for a friend....

She says she conceived her first baby without periods and was only off the pill for 2 days when she got caught first time round (i did not know her first time round)

She is trying to conceive again and has not had a period for 5 years so she doesnt know whether she ovulates.... although she is convinced she ovulates while on the pill but i was under the impression that the contraceptive pill stopped ovulation in order to prevent pregnancy!

Can anyone offer any advice?

I would have to say that she is probably not ovulating, due to not having a period in 5 years. The pill gives you a "fake period".

Is she still on the pill or just got off again?

So, she hasn't gotten a period or ''fake period'' in 5 years?

Hmmmm... i have never heard of that before. I would say she should probably go to the DR and find out why she is not getting a period. Because if she was ovulating she would've gotten her period.

This was my thoughts... I said if she is not getting a period and you are supposed to ovulate 14 days after (depending on length of cycles) then how can she ovulate. I have just googled it though and people seem to think you can?????

Now im confused.....

I've heard of people who are very irregular to get pregnant, but it's likely because they happened to ovulate that particular month. ( of course I'm not so lucky. I'm irregular AND having ZERO luck getting my BFP!!)

So, looking at it as kind of a fluke- there is a SLIGHT chance a person with amenorrhea ( lack of periods) can get pregnant.

She should start charting to see if she really is ovulating

i had severe pcos and no periods for 3 years before i suddenly got pregnant with archie
it is possible , the docs said i must have spat out an egg that particular month for some reason
it was a rarity though they said

It's unlikely, but I don't think anything is impossible anymore... other than my ! LOL

I would definitely see a doc if no period or withdrawal bleed for 5 years on BCP. That's strange! Was she using the whole pack? Or, was she skipping the placebos to avoid the bleed?
