We want a baby but it's like my ovulation days aren't right or I'm not ovulating or something

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to give you some helpful information in the subject.

First of all, having unprotected sex where the male ejaculates into the vagina can cause pregnancy.  Since you have an irregular period, pregnancy can still be a possibility and I suggest you take a pregnancy test as soon as you feel like your irregular period has ended.

If the test is negative, then your period could have been very light for a number of reasons.  Stress, hormonal imbalances, little sleep, excessive exercise, or medications are a few things that can cause it.

If you want a regular period and you plan to continue having intercourse, I suggest that you talk to your doctor about taking a birth control pill.  This is a great way to help your body regulate your cycle and avoid doubts about pregnancy.

Let us know if you have any more questions.

I really and truly hope i am not posting multiple times on here and just cant see it. but for some reason, my computer is doing funny things.
first i would like to say i'm a hair dresser not a doctor so my knowledge is limited to my own experiences, and general knowledge.

that being said i have some questions for you:

How old are you?

Was this your first time having intercourse? first time unprotected?

Was your "play time"rougher than normal?

Are you experiencing any pain, discomfort, itching, swelling in or around your vagina, as far back as your rectum or as far up into your lower abdomen?

Did you experience any pain, discomfort or cramping during intercourse?

Do you have sensitive skin, or use a new hygiene product recently (i.e. soap, pad, wipe, lotion, cream, etc)?

Is the bleeding heavy, or a light spotting?

Do you have a history of infections, or conditions that create some of your symptoms?

whether you discuss this further on the forum, or speak with your doctor (as i recommend you do, bleeding outside of your normal menstural cycle should be checked into - better you find out its nothing, than let a small issue turn into a big one), i hope you find the answers you are looking for.

I am sorry I provided more questions than answers, and I'm sure some of them may seem silly, but I assure you they are relevant.
If you do see your doctor, write down your symptoms, and be completely honest with him/her. No matter how embarrassing you may think it is, trust me they've seen stranger/weirder/grosser; and if they are any kind of professional, will be professional in discussing this with you.

best of luck to you!
