You cannot ovulate twice in one cycle. You can release two eggs at once but you can't ovulate two different times in one cycle.

Taking birthcontrol however could have messed your cycle up to throw things off. Your body might be confused.

It might take a while before you will be able to predict cycles again if you've gone on and off bc.

Actually you CAN ovulate twice in a cycle...it's pretty rare, but can happen (you can google it)....

I'm not sure if this is what happened to you though, it's hard to say...BC (not used as guided) can do all sorts of things. It's not really good to use it as a "period delayer", that is not it's intended purpose....Good luck...I hope that your body straightens out... Congrats on your wedding!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

No, the first poster got it right- you can only go through "ovulation" once per cycle- the reason is that the hormones present after ovulation suceeds the first time keep your body from even trying to ovulate again. Two eggs can be released for sure- but the process only happens once.

Here is more information about what people commonly refer to as "ovulating twice"- Can You Ovulate Twice in One Cycle?

I'd say though that it's the BCP messing things up for you.

It is possible to ovulate twice in the same cycle, however it is rare. Occasionally a 2nd egg is released about 24 hours after the 1st egg. It can be beneficial to continue having intercourse for 2 or 3 days beyond ovulation.

It is very possible to O twice in a cycle but it is very rare indeed. I have actually experienced Oing twice in one cycle and confirmed by u/s both times. I am considered very high risk because of my 8 previous losses, so I am monitored very closely each cycle and each and everytime I become pregnant. Also most docs will tell you that it is possible but happens very rarely.

Just to clarify- did you release two eggs or ovulate twice? Becuase those are different and I think that's what the question was asking about.

I think the terms just needed defined, haha. Ovulation itself- the process with FSH, and LH surges, egg releasing and progesterone taking over, doesn't occur more than once in one cycle. But you can have two eggs release within two different times but in the same process (like someone else said, around 24 hours apart).

I'm not trying to say your wrong, I'm just trying to be specific so we don't have mis-information. Plus, if you actually did have two seperate ovulation process's than I want to know! haha.

I know exactly what Oing twice is for sure. Especially when it happens a week and a half apart. Speaking as a person who is in medical school right now and who has been through Ob/Gyn rotations, it is very possible to ovulate at different times/points in your cycle. It is not unheard of in the medical profession. This speaking as a student of the medical profession, as a woman whose mother is an Ob/Gyn, and as a woman whose own doctor confirmed it by us twice.

Snlemon If I sound a it snarky and like I am snapping, I apologize. I am near the end of my 2WW and I am having cramps like I have had in the past when I was pregnant before and I am having a tooth pulled because it cracked in half somehow. It is causing me so much pain and the I am not wanting to take any medication if I am pregnant again.

No problem- this is honestly the first time I've heard of someone with your experiance. Everything I've read/seen/discussed with my own OBGYN has said that it isn't possible (that it's the double egg thing not the secondary process), so that is quite interesting. Thank you for sharing!

I think in your case it sounds like your BC has messed you up a bit. I can't comment on the Oing twice in a cycle thing because there seems to be various conflicting evidence and this is of particular interest to me but I'm not a medical person so I have no definitive knowledge but with the BC your body might have thought it had already gone through a whole cycle and started another one or you might have some confused hormones producing different kinds of CM. It's really hard to know.

Have you stopped taking the BC yet?

Hi Ladies!

Don't mind me, I'm just upping the discussion ante here..

Last Sunday (27 Feb) I was definitely ovulating. I had the pain right before, the EWCM for a whole 3 days. Unfortunately, the timing was wrong for having sex so I figured "great, another month gone". Today (5 March), I'm having the exact same symptoms as last Saturday. I had pain on my left yesterday and am baffled by EWCM today.

For the sake of argument, let's pretend it IS possible for 2 ovulations in 1 very short (25) day cycle. If I were to have sex today, would that push my expected implantation until next week instead of today and my NP until 19 March?

Incidentally, I'm frustratingly regular. I have been for over 2 years when I switched from a 34 day cycle to a 25 day one.

I tested positive twice OPK last cycle. I called and talked to my OB she said you can't O twice in a cycle (it was a long cycle 40 days! I tested positive at CD15 and CD39. Something about AF made CD39 positive. So no, apparently you can't.

Yes and No. Ok first yes you can ovulate two eggs in a cycle but they will both ovulate with your LH surge. So both eggs will come out within 24 hours of each other if you do ovulate more than one egg.

Second you actually can ovulate and than ovulate a second time later down the line before AF is due. However this is EXTREMELY rare so I doubt this is what happened to you. There are in fact documented cases of women who were pregnant with fraternal twins and the embryos were dated and grew at a rate sometimes as far as a month apart in age. Again this is very very rare. A woman can get pregnant and than her ovaries somehow dont get the messege and than she ovulated within a month after conceiving and than conceives again.

If you got more than one time of getting a positive ovulation test in a single cycle than its most likely you had an LH surge, failed to ovulate, than got another LH surge later as your body attemps to ovulate again. Its happened to me a few times.

Hi Ladies,

Just want to put my thoghts into the mix here:

I have "appeared" to ovulate twice in a month. What happened was i would experience EWCM and then about 5 days later i experienced lots of EWCM again along with middle pain - my ob said the most likely thing that occured was that my body attempted ovulation & didnt realease an egg (for whatever its reasons) so tried again a few days later - i can tell you that i did release an egg as that was the cycle i conceived DS !

Thanks for the info, both of you. How about my question of pushing my implantation and next period to the following week if the egg is fertilized during the second LH surge or ovulation? Has anyone heard of that? In terms of HPT, that would me a negative result even when I'm 1 week behind schedule unless I have a very high HCG reading from early on, right?
