Is it possible to concieve without ovulating?.Cycle 2 days late, very crampy,tender nipples. Strict vegetarian and not under alot of stress. Have been ttc for 9 mths. Can anyone share their experience?. Don't want to take test too soon and be disappointed.
Also need any symptom experience that is not textbook. This will be my first time ever.

My first question would be.....what makes you think that you didn't Ovulate? In order for an egg to be released ovulation MUST take place(that's what ovulation is). ovulation, no egg to fertilize.

If you didn't get a positive on an opk, you still may have ovulated.
If you are 2 days late, it's safe to take a test....not too early.
Let us know!

WithOUT ovulating? Only if you had an IVF. Why do you think you're NOT ovulating?

Are you under the care of an RE? check with him/her to make sure you're ovulating : )
