Hi all, we just started TTC again after a M/C in January. Since then my cycles have been between 29-33 days.
I was under alot of stress last month and had my period for 8 days then stopped for two days and started again for another 5 days. So I believe that this must have thrown my cycle off because I didn't get my period 37 of my next cycle.
So, I started using OPK the day after I ended and it is now day 15 since I ended my period and started testing, and still no surge detected. I do have some cramping and CM.
My quesion is...can I ovulate right before my period?
I think its possible, but uncommon. if you do ovulate right before your period, you would have a luteal phase defect (ie, a very short luteal phase) If i recall correctly, anything under 10 days is considered short for your luteal phase. If you do find you are having a short luteal phase, get to a doctor quick, because if you are TTC, it can cause issues. Hope thats not the case for you though. :-D
