Can you ovulate whilst on the pill?

My heart hurts at the amount of stuff we just don't know about ourselves as women. I believe with all my being that every woman has the right to know as much as she can about herself and how her body works.  Unfortunately the main reason we have disconnected from ourselves and we don't know how to read our signs and symptoms is because of the pill.  After all, it's designed to take everything 'offline', meaning that you don't experience the ebbs and flows of the menstrual cycle, your hormones aren't communicating with you like they are designed to do and really, we are left with little idea to what is actually going on in there.

Why Jane Harber loves Debunking Ovulation

 

I'm pretty pumped to bring you this interview – I've made a new friend who is mad for my Debunking Ovulation download!   Recently I had the opportunity to share Debunking Ovulation with Jane Harber, actress and all round lovely woman.  Many people know Jane by her character Zara in the best TV series of ALL time (well as far as I'm concerned), Offspring.  I'm not sure if I love the show so much because it's about babies, hormones and everyday issues or because some of the characters are extraordinarily kind to the eye (hello Patrick!).  In any case, I've been known to live from Wednesday to Wednesday in anticipation.  Jane has also recently been extremely busy shooting the follow on series of Moody Christmas, the new INXS tele-movie for Network 7 (CAN'T WAIT!!) and the 5th season of Offspring.

Jane's been keeping up to speed with healthtalks, what I've been sharing and Debunking Ovulation and invited the chance to help us spread the message because she wholeheartedly believes that women need to know this stuff!  So I took the opportunity to ask her more specifically a little about why she loved the e-course so much and a little bit more about herself as a woman.  

Here's what she had to say.

Because I want to be always adding layers to the information I'm giving you – I created this very quick video to debunk another myth around ovulation.  So many women are of the belief that they can have a period but not be ovulating.  I need all women to know that this is impossible.  A true period (a flow that is at least one day in duration) is always a result of ovulation.  In the instance where a women suspects she isn't ovulating she may be experiencing one of the following;

+ misinterpreting when she is ovulating (then she absolutely needs to get onto my Debunking Ovulation e-course)

+ being guided by unreliable test like the Day 21 ovulation blood test or ovulation predictor kit tests – again something we discuss in detail in my e-course.  As we learn, if a women is ovulating after day 21 of her cycle, yet she's being tested on day 21, this can lead to all kinds of confusion.

+ misinterpreting ovulatory signs or change in hormones marked by spotting or a dirty/dry kind of bleed

Whatever the case, with this information I hope to encourage you to find out more about what is going on in your body – as I continue to debunk the myths around women's health and pave the way for happy, healthy hormones!  Click play and learn.

The 5 BIGGEST ovulation myths.

 

As you are well aware, I’m currently touring the country with my Debunking Ovulation live event.  Let me just take the opportunity to tell you how much fun I’m having and how your feedback is so very inspiring!  Of course – why wouldn’t I be, I’m in my element, enlightening and enriching woman’s lives with information that is so very simple and wholesome yet so important.  You don’t need to be a gynecologist to understand what I’m presenting or have graduated from the school of ovaries.  There’s just one prerequisite and that is; you want to know more about yourself as a woman.  Because once you learn this stuff – you can never not know it!

Anyway – if you want more information on that, jump across to the event section on my site OR if you happen to live in tranquility away from they hustle and bustle of a capital city I’m touring to, don’t forget the download was released last week!  And can I please ask that you help me share this message.  Every woman deserves the right to know why the pill isn’t necessarily working for her and what her options are.

But today – I want to share with you the top 5 myths of ovulation – because when it comes to this stuff, sex ed just didn’t cut the mustard!

 

You ovulate on cycle day 14

Maybe you do, but maybe you don’t.  It’s ridiculous to think that we all have exactly the same body function on exactly the same day every month.  Ovulation can be affected by weight loss, weight gain, poor diet, medication, hormone imbalance and most of all STRESS, to name a few.  These things can push ovulation out, meaning you will ovulate later in your cycle.  And for those with hormone imbalances, you might find yourself ovulating earlier in your cycle.  It’s important to use this as a guide to what is actually going on in your body – a short follicular phase (from cycle day one until ovulation) usually indicates low levels of oestrogen making it virtually impossible to fall pregnant unless you pay it some attention.

 

If I have PCOS, I can’t fall pregnant

Biggest myth of all time!  PCOS doesn’t mean you can’t fall pregnant – it means you need to better understand how to detect ovulation.  What we need to get clear on is that women with PCOS most often attempt multiple times to ovulate in the one cycle – and MOST importantly, the last ‘try’ or attempt at ovulation will always be ovulation.  This is key for these women especially those trying for a baby.  So if a woman's body is ticking all the boxes (signs of ovulation, good menstrual flow etc), there’s absolutely no reason why they can’t fall pregnant – just as Victoria Beckham did! 

 

I get my period but I’m not ovulating

This is actually physically impossible.  If you are truly ovulating, it must absolutely be followed with a period 1-2 weeks later.  The confusion here lies around where you actually ovulate.  Your GP may perform an ovulation test to check; a blood test done on 21 to see what your hormone levels are saying.  Here's the problem; most women requiring such tests are those with signs of hormone imbalance, it’s reasonable to think you may actually be ovulating after cycle day 21 – meaning your test is going to come back negative, your GP is going to tell you you’re not ovulating and understandably your going to need one big box of tissues with this seemingly unfortunate news.  Know this – it's just a symptom of hormone imbalance AND completely treatable!

It's total craziness to think that every woman on the planet ovulates on exactly the same day, every single cycle since we know so many factors play a role in it happening in the first place.  If you find yourself ovulating later in the cycle, you may also be suffering excess oestrogen or low hormones in general.  In any case, use the sign as a reason to explore.  It’s very treatable and in many instances, some simple supplements, diet and lifestyle changes should do the trick.   Some women can experience a hormonal bleed where the shift between oestrogen and progesterone marked by spotting.  It may be around the time the period is due and confused with a period – but the key here is that it is generally very light; almost like spotting.  It certainly won’t have the flow of a period.  Obviously this can be a little confusing and women think it’s a period following ovulation and it isn’t.  Remember, if it looks like spotting, it's most likely not your period.

 

When I see a lot of fertile mucus, I’m ovulating.

This can be a HUGE trap.  Women see fertile mucus and go for gold – confining timing to that one day specific 'fertile' for conception.  You see, it’s not the day we see the most amount of fertile mucus (characteristically clear/egg white consistency), it’s the last day we recgonise this mucus.  If the mucus lasts for 4-5 days this can be key for timing.   This equally doubles are your natural contraception (couple it with withdrawal and you're about 96% covered!) – if you know exactly when your body is fertile, avoiding unprotected sex is key.

 

Ovulation should be marked by pain

Hells no!  Pain at ovulation may be a sign that you are hormonally imbalanced – typically high in oestrogen.  Just like the period, ovulation should be symptom free.  Pain, heaviness, irritability, anxiety, emotional upset, headaches are the key indicators.  Symptoms of fertile mucus should always be your primary sign of ovulation.

 

Over time (and due to the pill) we’ve somewhat disconnected from the signs and symptoms our bodies show us each month as clues to the bigger picture.  It’s time we got back to basics, understood what’s being communicated to better education ourselves about… ourselves!  Unfortunately being on the pill long term means, for many women, they don’t understand these key symptoms or that sometimes they aren’t normal.  Coming off the pill we can see terrible hormone imbalance as the body tries to find its hormonal groove again.  Sometimes its ok, and other times it is a disaster.  When all is said and done, the more we know as much as possible about our own bodies, the more we can live happier, healthier lives.

This weekend I had the pleasure to visit the beautiful city of Perth!  Oh my, two words.  In LOVE!  I had never been and I honestly I didn't want to leave!  The women of Perth totally immersed themselves into the time we had together.  It seems, I could have spoken to them all day and they would have kept listening.

My inbox indicates that some of you have missed the live events in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and now Perth which is why I created the Debunking Ovulation Download that was released last week.

In case you're not sure of what all the fuss is about OR perhaps you're just not sure if it is for you – here's my promo clip.  When I say this information is valuable for ALL woman, I truly mean it.  We not only cover ovulation, we talk about contraception, conception, natural fertility methods, poly cysitic ovarian syndrome, cervical cancer and abnormal pap smears, gut health and SO much more.

I invite you today to do 2 quick things.  

1.  Watch the clip.  It will take you all of 3 minutes and most likely you'll learn something you didn't know.

2. Share this post – you'll automatically go in the running for the giveaway to SCORE a free download.  I'm giving away 3 – they're valued at $47.

This coming weekend I'm off to share the word with Tasmania.  Perhaps you know somebody there that may like to join me?  Not to be a nag – there's still tickets available and so again – send them here and change their lives too.

One last thing.  My co-ordinator and I had plenty of time to chat on the long-ish flight over (which actually went really quickly!) and we want you to stay tuned.  My team and I have something exciting we will be revealing in the next few weeks about next years tour dates!  We'll be covering something entirely new and equally as important – changing the way women see their health and taking the fear factor out of fertility because of course, fertility isn't just about the babies!

The winners will be announced this Friday 8th of November – you've got 4 days to get your place in the draw!

 

 

I'm digging this one up from the archives today.  I've literally JUST got back onto Victorian soil after an AMAZING time bringing Debunking Ovulation to Brisbane.  Next stop is Perth!  People of Perth – there are just a handful of tickets left, so tell your sisters, besties, workmates, heck even your enemies because every woman deserves the right to know this stuff.  You can get your hands on those last few tickets here.  Thanks to the live event and the download, women around the world are LOVING this information.  As a TCM practitioner I'm technically not allowed to publish words of praise related to me as a Dr of TCM – although this information I share isn't really TCM related – but to keep everybody happy, may I invite you to take a look at the feedback by way of comments on social media and all the lovely comments and absolute gratitude women are expressing as my message is helping to take the fear out of fertility.  Don't just take my word for it!  Check out my instagram account (NatKringoudis) or my Facebook page.  I absolutely love Debunking Ovulation!  But today – we're talking about the Lunar Cycle and the Time of Lunar Return – check out this post I wrote a few years back.

 

You may have heard of the term 'lunar cycle.' It refers to the idea that the moon has an influence on the body and the menstrual cycle. Have you noticed that you ovulate or menstruate with the moon? Francesa Naish first brought my attention to the Lunar Cycle and how it effects fertility. Francesa, a natural fertility herbalist, wrote the book Natural Fertility.
