Okay i as i read this back to myself the weirder it sounds. I need to know if you can ovulate during a period and surely if you did there's no way the egg can settle. Would it be flushed straight out?????
I ask this as yesterday i went for a Pelvic Ultrasound. When they did the internal she told me she could see a nice healthy egg ready to be released. So went home and i jumped Hubby. Yesterday i was CD28.
This morning i woke with sharpe stabbing pains and i thhought ooooo here comes ovulation. But instead i get the dreaded .
Now i saw my lil eggie in black and white all ready to go, so why have i come on my period now???
I don't know if this helps since I'm new to the OPKs too... but I have crazy spotting and bleeding that I have been trying to correct with progesterone cream. I didn't know if/when I ovulate so I finally started using OPKs on the 15th (after about 7 months of just guessing... and guessing poorly I might add). I'd basically been spotting/bleeding off and on for 3-4 weeks before that. Anyway, I had started more of a period on the 22nd (last Friday) and called that CD1. I've tested everyday and got what appears to be my LH surge on CD5 (today was CD6). I was on my "period" when I got my positive/nearly positive and you can see a progression. I'm starting my progesterone cream Friday and if I manage not to bleed while using it, it should mean I did in fact ovulate and use the cream at the right time. So, in my very limited experience and with very very irregular cycles, I say YES. When I conceived my son in early 2006 I hadn't had a period in about 2 months so ovulation doesn't necessarily happen when it's 'supposed' to either.
I have read that it's possible... (in my Zita West book I think?) that if you have really short cycles you could Ov before your period has finished... I think there was a case study in the book of a couple who'd been trying for ages assuing Ov was after af... I think they got pg when the problem was worked out, so must be possible!!! GL x
