I am in my 3rd week of my period. Just been to the docs who said that it could have been an early miscarriage but it could also be lots of other reasons and to wait another couple of weeks before coming back. My normal period only lasts 5 days!!!
Anyway I was wondering wether I could ovulate during my period as I have been having twinges on my right hand side since last night.
You definitely can ovulate during your period but what you have doesn't sound like a period. I know a few months ago I was having some irregular bleeding, which is highly unusual for me but the doctor told me that sometimes a woman's body needs to regulate hormones, regulate itself so the bleeding is a little different. I would say if you feel like you are ovulating, go out and buy an OPK to see if it is positive. That is really the only way you can set your mind at rest until you see your doctor if the bleeding doesn't go away. Hopefully everything is okay with you. Baby dust!
Im pretty sure you cant ovulate on your AF!! But you said you are on your third week of AF which which is also very unusual so Im not entirely sure whats happening!! Sorry I couldnt be more helpful!
It actually is possible to ovulate during AF. I got a positive OPK on CD 5 while still on my period and 12 days later (the length of my LP) I started bleeding again for a period, then didn't have another period for my usual 26 days. This was a one time thing for me. It never happened before and it never happened again but it definitely can happen.
She wants me to come in for a smear test which ironically I got a letter in the post for this morning as its due. I have never had irregular bleeding and she said that as I am only 29 she wasnt too worried. Guess i'll just have to wait out the next 2 weeks and see what happens
I really don't know the answer to this...but I had this exact thing happen to me about a year and a half ago. I'm totally not trying to scare you, but I just want to share what happened.
I was bleeding off and on for about 5 weeks. I went to my GP who basically said come back if it gets worse. She didn't seem to think it was a big deal at all. Then I started getting sick, the lymph nodes in my groin swelled up and I was spiking a fever. I went back to the doctor and she did a bunch of tests only to find out I had an infection in my uterus, a kidney infection, and over the following week I developed an infection in my digestive system...all because she didn't do anything the first time around. I was more or less bedridden for about 6 weeks with a fever so high I developed heat rash over my entire body.
The dr did tests for for everything, and never found a cause. She said it was probably a miscarriage that wasn't properly treated, yet she never tested for HCG in my system.
Anyways, earlier this year I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks and when I told my OBGYN about what happened last year she was shocked that my GP didn't test for HCG in my system. And because there were no definitive results, they will not medically consider it a miscarriage. I have since had another miscarriage, but as far as my doctors are concerned it is my first.
I firmly believe that if my doctor had taken me seriously the first time around, all the extra problems could have been prevented.
I know my case is probably a pretty rare scenario, but if you are concerned about what is going on with you I would strongly recommend asking your doctor to at least run some blood tests, or find another doctor .
