    I know I've already asked this question but nobody answered me so i thought id ask it again lol
    This might sound silly but I've never really thought about it before, can you ovulate during your af whilst you're still bleeding or is it always when you've stopped bleeding?
    This is my first proper period in 2 years as I've come off the pill and I don't know my cycle length or anything. I'm still on my af at the moment though so I can roughly see how long I'll be on my af for.
    The reason I'm asking is because before the pill I used to bleed constantly, really heavy for about a week and a half - 2 weeks so does that mean I'll ovulate later in my cycle or I'll ovulate whilst I'm bleeding?
    Also cause I was on the pill my cycle still might be irregular or so I've heard it might take a while for my af to come again so when should i take a pregnancy test rather than waiting for an af that might take months to come?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi, I am quite new so don't know but didn't want to read and run.

    I do think that you could o if your af was very light but it may be that you have a longer cycle and o later in the month.

    I know a lot of people on here use ovulation predicor kits, that might be somethig you want to look into if things are difficult to work out.

    By the sounds of what you are saying this is just your first month off pill therfore it might take 3 months to get your own natural cycle pattern as your body can be all over the place after the pill.

    Hope this helps a little and good luck xx

    If you ovulated during af then you would get another af about 14 days later as the time between ovulation and af does not really vary that much, its the time from your last af to ovulation that causes the changes in cycle lenght so unless you have really short cycles it is unlikely x
