Everything in the Universe, including our body, is governed by cycles. In women, this is clearer, since during the month their body prepares to nest a new life and for that it goes through different stages.
However, the process is not always so clear. For example, one of the questions that many women ask themselves about their cycle is whether it is possible to ovulate without having the rule.

How do you realize that you are ovulating?
These are some of the signs that indicate you are ovulating:
– Changes in vaginal discharge
– Pain in the abdomen
– Mild staining
– Increased sexual desire
– Sensitivity in the breasts
– Abdominal swelling
– More intense or receptive senses of vision, smell or taste

Is it possible to ovulate even if you do not menstruate?
If you have regular cycles and you have not had your period, it does not mean that you have not ovulated. In general, the ovum is released 12 to 16 days before the expected period. That is why it is possible to get pregnant without having periods.
If you are breastfeeding and therefore do not have the rule, you can ovulate at any time. Then, you must take contraceptive measures if you want to avoid pregnancy.
If you have secondary amenorrhea, that is to say that you do not have your period due to causes that are not pregnancy, the absence of menstruation indicates, in general, that you have not ovulated. However, you should not think that not having the rule is the same as not being able to get pregnant. If it is temporary, the cycle can be re-established at that time and then ovulate.
Why could you have secondary amenorrhea?
These are some factors that may occur when, without being pregnant, you skip the rule:
– Use of drugs that affect the cycle
– Change in hormonal contraceptive methods
– Weight changes
– Excessive physical exercise
– Polycystic ovarian syndrome
– Thyroid problems
Remember that everything in our body is a cycle, and we are integral people on a physical, mental and emotional level. Then, it is possible that our period undergoes modifications for other issues (such as stress) and that this momentarily interrupts our menstruation without it meaning anything more serious.
In any case, remember that whenever you notice irregularities in your cycle or have doubts, the best way to resolve them is to consult with your trusted gynecologist or doctor.
