ovulating ?

What is ovulating.. If i dont get a regular period does that mean that i'm not ovulating ?
Going on the pill to regulate period.. when i get my period does that mean that i did ovulate, or is getting your peiod just a shedding of the lining?

Getting your period on the Pill does not mean that you are ovulating.
Ovulation is the release of the egg. If you do not have regular periods, it is likely that you are not ovulating.

Ovulating is the release of an egg into the fallopian tubes and that is ready for fertilization.. Ovulation is the only time a woman can fall pregnant. If your periods are irregular it might mean that you are not ovulating and will need to regulate your peiods first.. Hope this makes more sense. All the best
