About ovulation etc? I had to explain it to jason but he thinks that u ovulate right after your period ends and then 2 weeks before your period, i tried telling him you only ovulate once a month not twice lol. but he has reason to beleive its twice. a couple weeks ago he thought ovulation and menstruation were the same lmao. men. i just told him when u ovulate is when ur able to make babies to put it simply so he understands i didnt wanna say conceive then he is like whats that haha. i think they should all be aware of how our bodies work. i need to find me a website that says we only ovulate once a month and when that is lol so he dont think im lying to him or something.

I don't even want to begin to tell you what my husband didn't know when I met him....oh my! When he realized he knew nothing, he went on woman's health websites to educate himself. He reaaalllly knew nothing. He was truly embarrassed.

yea most guys dont seem to know much or think they know alot but find out they dont at all, i think my husband is still convinced we ovulate twice. i had to laugh when he thouight ovulation was the medical term for your period.
he tried to be nice and get "tampons" at the grocery store , came back with 2 things of pads hehe, i cant stand em so gonna be bringing em back when we get the chance hehe. they try , im suprised he bought any feminine products to begin with lol.
i need to find me some websites to educate him and well prove that i know what im talking abuot, funny thing i learned alot from this website hehe. just reading the posts in this forum and womens health sex or whatnot and stuff

*some* women do ovulate 2 times in one cycle.
*some* women do ovulate right after their period.
*some* women ovulate during their period.

the most typical scenario is to ovulate approx 2 weeks before your period is due.
the drop in progesterone (which is high after ovulation) is what causes you to bleed and shed you uterus lining.

most hormonal birth control works by supressing ovulation and thickening the cervical mucus.

this isn't 100% - evident by the fact some people do get pregnant even when using the pill correctly.

it's not common for women to ovulate twice but it does happen.

I know that i got pregnant with my daughter right after my period because my husband was working out of town during my period....he came back the day it ended and we had sex the next night then he left for out of town again for 3 weeks and i left for a business trip right before he came home for a week. by the time we had sex again it was like 4 weeks after my period and i was due again for my period......we found out a week later. (oh and i was on b/c for a year and a half)

then with my son...again on b/c, I got preggers and didnt' even know it for about 14 weeks....so yeah....it's not always 14 days bafore your period.

ok just what happened with me.

remember you don't neccesarily get pregnant the day you have sex.
sperm can survive inside you for up to 5 days.

yeah i know....sometime within that five days......give or take.

do you think that i would be stupid enough to go back on the same birth control after getting pregnant while on it? I dont' think so.....it was the pill for one and the patch for the other.
