At some stage your cycles will return. You can ovulate first and then menstruate, or the other way around. It is not possible to predict. So yes, it is possible to get pregnant without having menstruated first. Ovulation is what counts, not menstruation.

Did your cervical mucus changes come back yet?

Best of luck TTC!
