I know this sounds like a silly question, but I would really like to know if it is at all possible to ovulate while still having your period. The reason I ask is because I've read several posts whereby people say they ovulate as early as days 6 or 8 of their cycles. During days 6 through 7 of my cycle, I'm still very lightly bleeding and/or spotting the residues. I would hate to think that I can miss ovulation because I don't test with OPK at this time. I thought it would be too early. I usually start testing around day 10.

I don't believe so but it wouldn't hurt to test earlier as you have a long AF. Let me know what happens!!
