Question: Anovulation??? We've been TTC for over a year now. After about 7 months I started to wonder what the problem was. My husband has a child already, so I know it's not him. I started charting my cycles to make sure we hit the right day, but we are sexually active just about every day. My cycles vary from 32 days to 37 days. I'm wondering if that's normal. ??? A friend of mine had mentioned that maybe I have an anovulatory cycle. How do I find out if that is problem so I can fix it? I know I need to go to the doctor, but what will he do?

Answer: Well see a good gyneocologist or an endocrinologist to confirm that its you. Its not necesary that if your husband has a child before he can still be fine. Many times the sperm changes with the age and the physical status of a man too. When you see a good doctor they will run some tests. If you are getting regular periods in the range of 32 to 37 days then I don't think its abnormal. The problem is when one gets irregular periods. Like sometimes 32 days sometimes 40 days sometimes 45 days and so on. But having irregular periods can mean that you are anovulatory. If you don't want to do such hassles then start taking your temperature with a digital thermometer. After a few cycles a pattern will establish and you'll understand that it is the time for ovulation when there is a noticable rise in the temperature. A best website for this is Try going on this site and read from the information they have about keeping track of your cycles. Well when you go to the doctor he'll do some ultrasounds of your ovaries on some particular days of your cycle to see if the egg in there gets mature and is releasing or not. If its not then he'll give you medications to mature the egg or to release the egg whatever the case may be.
