does anyone know about the possibility of inducing ovulation by any means? i would obviously assume the date can't be moved up by much, but is even just a day or two earlier possible?
There are medications to induce ovulation, but you shouldn't induce unless you're being monitored by a physician and ultrasound because early release of the egg would cause an immature egg. In some cases, when this happens, if they egg were to fertilize it would likely miscarry early on because it cannot grow properly.
I have had irregular periods ever since I was a teenager. I would go for several months at a time without a cycle, so when my husband and I wanted to try for a second child, my doctor prescribed Clomid for me. This is a pill you take for several days and then you need to go in for a blood test. The test determines if there is enough hormone in your system to get pregnant and also makes you ovulate. I was worried at first that I would end up pregnant with multiples, but I was assured that it is very rare to have more than one baby with this drug. 2 months later I was pregnant with my daughter! I would recommend this for anyone who is struggling to get pregnant.
Look up lunaception!
