On approximately the first of oct I had taken a morning after pill, which completely altered my period, which had just happened previously on the 22nd of september. The morning after pill caused me to get a period on the 7th. This should have caused my ovulation date to be around the 20th of october, give or take a few days. Recently, we have decided to try, and I was just wondering if my ovulaiton date will be affected due to this morning after pill, and if not, can one concieve after an ovulation date. If anyone could help that would be awesome. Thanks!
I would guess that you can count an induced period like a regualar and count from there. I know that the egg hangs out for like 48 hours un the womb too, and sperm can live up to 5 days. So in a regular cycle you have like 7 days you could get pregnant.
I have to be really honest and ask why you took the morning after pill and now are trying to conceive a month later? I don't know you at all, and i'm trying not to offend you, but maybe you're not ready to have baby? It sounds like "oops we made a mistake, I need a quick fix"...30 days later "let's have a baby..."
please help me understand where you're at.
As far as ovulation goes, you can't count the days after your period until you ovulate. It is usually different by about a day every cycle, and different for every person. My husband and I use natural family planning which is a way to know when you are ovulating so if you want to get pregnant, you have sex during your fertile days, and when you don't want to get pregnant you just don't have sex during that time.
It is very easy despite what most people say. And most people who say it's confusing or not worth it haven't actually tried it. I have two married friends that I have taught how to do it and they both struggled during the first month because they were not used to checking the three symptoms that you body gives every month to show you are ovulating. I encouraged them to try it for a second month because then you will have the first month to compare it with and they both have stuck with it ever since. The first month is just getting used to it combined with worry that you're not doing it right (even if you are). But it is well worth it. It's free, it takes two minutes a day and it's as effective as birth control.
The morning after pill altered your period because it forced you to shed the lining of your uterus and the fetus (abortifacient). Your hormones will be out of whack for a while, I am assuming.
If you want to learn how to know when you are ovulating, just let me know and we can start a natural family planning "how to" thread.
No im glad you were honest, it does seem weird. We havent been together that long but I cant be without him and we are both at a place where we can properly raise a child. Also, there is a condition that is heriditary in my family which causes the ovaries to be removed at a very early age...Im not sure exactly what its called, but if I can get pregnant now, i'll have my chance to be a mom before I lose the opportunity too. As far as your thread, i'd be very interested :d.
