My doctor also said that as we get closer to menopause, our ovaries can shoot eggs out at random with no warning, as last ditch efforts.
She has worked with women who thought they didn't ovulate, but out of the blue, got pregnant.
Their charts showed no ovulation. I didn't know this was possible.
She is about 50+ years old, by her looks, and has a set of six year old twins.
She said that when she conceived, she ovulated the day before her period.
She had her period, and found out she was pregnant shortly after that.
I don't know how she knew she ovulated that day, but I believe her.
She also said that a really hot night of sex is all it takes for some women to pop that egg out.
Maybe that's why some women get pregnant after giving up the job of TTC [trying to conceive].
They go back to BD'ing [baby-dancing] for the enjoyment, which I haven't done in so long.
