We’re fertile at the ovulatory time in our cycle, which with regular menstrual cycles, is around cycle day 14. This is approximately 2 weeks from the first day of your period (and also, 2 week from your next period, if you have regular cycles.) The issue is, not all cycles are regular, and therefore the timing of ovulation may be unpredictable. Tracking your menstrual cycle/ovulatory time (the rhythm method) can be used for contraception (natural family planning) or to predict ovulation when you’re trying to conceive
False. Tubal ligation is the destruction of some portion of the fallopian tubes, for the purpose of sterilization. Our actual menstrual flow is regulated by the ovaries, and the menstrual flow comes from shedding of the uterine lining…neither of which are affected by the procedure of tubal ligation. If your periods change over time, investigation involves evaluating the uterus, and hormonal environment (the ovaries)… not the fallopian tubes.
