Can I Get Pregnant, I Haven't Had My Period?

Have you ever wondered if you could get pregnant during a cycle that didn’t include your period?
Believe it or not the answer is YES! The reason for this is that most women ovulate 12-16 days before they get their period. And as we know it is the release of the eggs that allow women to become pregnant. So technically, you can get pregnant without ever having your period. 
But as you can imagine, when your cycle is irregular it probably means that there are other imbalances in the body that you will want to remedy. 
So, if you are trying to conceive and do not consistently get your period because you are very thin, premenopausal or are breast feeding, check with your doctor about whether or not you need to make your cycle more regular!


I'm 53 years old, and still get a period. Everything is irregular right now, because I am having problems with fibroids.

We are going to try a procedure to see if we can fix this problem, because every other week I am coming on my period.

If I continue to get periods after this, does that mean that I am still ovulating. I would not want to get pregnant at my age, but what is the chance....PS

Iam 25 years old, i got married in jan 2010, i n my husband aborted 1 child before getting married n now after marriage we never conceived, my periods became scanty so, i met the doctor, he did laparoscopy n found everything was normal, and histopathology report stated that i have tuberculosis infection. he gave me treatment for 4 months n at that time my periods were normal, they lasted for 4 days before i used get my periods only for 2 days. Doctor stopped my treatment without testing me he told me that my infection is cleaned. i went to the other doctor he tested my blood n came to know that tuberculosis is still existing in me but he is not able to give me treatment. and now again my periods have become scanty. please guide me what to do. we are trying for pregnancies. so also please tell me good days to get pregnant. thank you. n god bless you and your good work

I am 46 yrs old and had no period for 11 months and then suddenly had one the day after a gastric bypass revision surgery and removal of gallbladder. That was July of 2010. Since then, I have not had another period, it's been 9 months without a period. I got married in September of 2010 and my husband and I have been trying since October of 2008 to get pregnant with no luck. His sperm count is low at 10.5 but still in the normal range. Can I still get pregnant?
