do you still ovulate even if you have heavy mid cycle bleeding?


Hello there,

I had my last period on the 20th of December which lasted a normal 6 days. We have recently moved and with all of the stress I happen to get a VERY heavy mid cycle bleed which started on the 2nd January (clotting and thick red blood) which lasted 3 days. This happens to be 13 days since the beginning of my last period.

I have a very regular 28 day cycle so to have a rare mid bleed was strange and the only thing I can put it down to is moving stress and subsequent relationship issues.

I was quite confused and just thought that my period had come early so treated it like this as it was a "normal" period.

Here's the thing, on the 3rd and 4th of January (whilst I was bleeding) my husband and I had sex and he ejaculated inside of me which we normally do when i have my period.

So, a few days ago now I realized that my labia is swollen and now I believe that even though I had my period, I was ovulating??

This means to me that we have had sex right on the days of being fertile...

My question is: with the heavy period that I had mid month, did I still ovulate a normal ovulation?

I hope this makes sense?

Please comment I would like some sort of idea on what was going on.

Btw, I don't have a gyno nor are we trying to conceive intensively but if it was to happen it would be fine also.

Thanks ladies.

I had heavy mid cycle bleeding and counted it as a new period. I think its possible to ovulate but if your bleeding that means that your progesterone went low enough to start bleeding so if your hormones aren't exactly right then you probably didn't ovulate. But never know for sure........

I think you could be right. It's weird though as I noticed that my vulva/labia was swollen on the same day the bleeding stopped... so not too sure as yet

Have you had any stress lately?? And has this ever happened before (mid cycle bleeding?

It's never happened to me except when I went off the pill, which is normal to get irregular bleeding..

What do you think? How long have you been bleeding for? I bleed for 3 days but as soon as I started to have sex it just STOPPED. VERY weird...

I know what you mean... it's not nice to find yourself bleeding mid month, even when you are not baby making..

I hope it clears up for you.. Although by the sounds of it it has? They also say that a little bit of blood mid month is good?

Yes, I just came off the pill in December. I got my first period on Christmas and now 15 days later I am getting it again. Thank you for sharing that you bled too getting off the pill. I thought it was maybe breakthrough bleeding, but I am SO crampy, and bloated!

yes! you still ovulate!


Hi ladies

I found out that pretty much nothing interrupts ovulation unless you have damage to your uterus or other medical conditions... so if you happen to get bleeding that doesn't surmount to something sinister then it's fine and you'll still ovulate..

I am 2 days lat for my af and I don't know if I can contain myself and wait til my hubby gets back(in 4 days) to do a test... or whether I should just do one and surprise him..

I have swollen boobies and bloating hmmmm
