Ovulation Situation

It is often thought that if you are on birth control that you will DEFINITELY not be ovulating. While most women do not ovulate while taking hormonal contraception, there is such thing as "breakthrough ovulation" - my lady parts doc said that this occurs in up to 30% of women.


Fear not though! There is no need to have a freak out session if you  feel that "ow, what the hell was that " cramp mid-cycle if you are on BC, since the hormones you are taking have other back ups to prevent pregnancy (e.g. funky cervical mucus and inhospitable uterine lining).
