Can a woman ovulate with a long period?

Good morning. In August I had to make the sad choice to have an abortion. on 08/04/2012. My first period after that was on 09/15/2012. it lasted untill yesterday with strong bleeding but yesterday thank goodness it was very light. I had sex with my husband twice (with minos bleeding) and both times he finished inside. Question is, Can i still ovulate even if the period lasts long. Because according to my ovulation calendar. i was fertil yesterday. Now am worried i might end up pregnand again. Thank you for any help.

HI,
Ovulation can occur in presence of excessive or scanty bleeding. Hence there can be chances of pregnancy.
Hope this helps.

The length of your cycle doesn't determine IF you'll ovulate, but it can determine WHEN you ovulate.  You may ovulate later than usual this cycle, and you may have some irregularities with your cycle as your body adjusts back to normal hormonally and physically following the recent termination of your pregnancy.  If you're charting your cycles, you should be using birth control of some sort if you're having sex at times you're likely to be fertile.  Yes, there is a chance of pregnancy if you are near the time you would typically ovulate.
