So I was put on birth control about 5 years ago because of ovarian cysts... I stopped taking it about 6 months ago because I was not sexually active after stopped taking it I didn't have a period for about 4 months so I went to my doctor he told me to take this pill and it should help me get back to being regular. I got one period after that, that was really heavy. My ovarian cysts came back and my dr wanted to put me back on birth control but I didn't want to go back on it.... It's been about 2 months now and once again no period. I just had sex with my boyfriend about two days ago and yes we did use a condom but when he pulled out he noticed that the sperm was up at the rim of the condom and is worried some might have gotten in me..... Since I haven't had a period in over 2 months am I still ovulating?? And if not could i still get pregnant....

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Irregular periods are usually associated with anovulatory cycles (menstrual cycles without periodic egg release from ovary). Other causes include: hormonal derangements, ovarian suppression, PCOS etc. It is difficult to comment on the cause for the irregular periods without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the irregular periods that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you regulate periods.
If you are not having ovulation, chances of pregnancy can be ruled out. However, possibility of having occasional ovulation in between cannot be ruled out completely. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If pregnancy is suspected, or if you have missed your periods, or if you have had abnormal periods, or if periods have not started within 10 days of expected period dates, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
Take care.
