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

The service having id "google_buzz" is missing, reactivate its module or save again the list of services.

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 started my period at age 12 and I have always been irregular. I started taking the pill at age 16 to regulate myself and help with the cramping. I have been takingn a low dosage birth control pill for 3 years and came off of it right before thanksgiving 2010. It is now July 7th 2011 and I have not had my period since I stopped taking the pill. I got married in April and we would like to have children right away.....I have take 5 pregnancy tests between February and April and they have all been negative. I have maintained a consistent weight as well and do not know what is wrong. is there a way to jump start my period again without getting back on the pill?

I do not have insurance so I have not been to the doctor yet. I will have to go to the doctor if I can't figure this out soon Sad someone please help me.

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
