Stupid Question Here!!!!!

Alright , here is the stupid question for the day. I was just reading another post and it was about ovulation. The person wrote that she had her period for 6 months now, but was not sure if she had ovulated. I thought if you had your period you were ovulating. My husband and I are ttc another baby. My dd is 7 months old. I am still breastfeeding but have had my period now for about 4 months.

I had figured out when I should be ovulating by using an ovulation calendar ( just a guesstimate, nothing scientific) but nothing has happened yet.

Would appreciate any insight!

You can have AF without ovulating. And you can ovulate without AF. Especially if your breastfeeding, or have a condition like polycystic ovarian syndrome, are overweight or have a poor diet. Temp charting would give you a better indication that you actually are ovulating because your temps should clearly rise after the egg is released. That's the only info I can give you maybe someone else has more insight.
