Hello, after missing a period that was probably due to stress when pregnancy and health issues have been ruled out, would your next ovulation and period occur according to normal scheduale?

Hi Lisa

Thanks for your question - it's a great one.

Unfortunately, there is no firm answer! Our bodies have their own minds! You may be lucky and get your period when you normally would have expected it had no not missed your last period - in other words, about 8 weeks from your last known period.

Or you may ovulate at any time, causing to you have your period around 12-18 days later.

I know this isn't a lot of help but since there's no known reason why you skipped your period, it's difficult to assess when your next one can be expected.

If you don't want to get pregnant - use protection at all times - right now there is NO safer time for you. If you are trying to get pregnant, have sex anytime because right now there is no better time to try, since you cannot track your cycle.

One thing you can do is to take your basal body temperature to see when you may ovulate (you can read more about that here : http://www.empowher.com/community/ask/what-basal-body-temp-and-how-do-women-use-it-get-pregnant) or purchase a kit from the drug store (located in the pregnancy test area).

I hope this helps, Lisa!
