Weird womb question

I haven't had a period in 7 months (came of pill, had three normal periods then nothing). My doc said that I could still be ovulating (waiting on blood tests). This may be a stupid question but I was just wondering if anyone knew whether, if I were to conceive having not had a period all this time, would it be bad for the baby to implant in a womb that hasn't been replenished for so long so to speak...old blood...?

I kinda think no ovulation, no lining. The womb starts building lining after ovulation day as that is when progesterone rises and it is the progesterone that helps implantation. That is why short luteal phase is considered fertility issue.
Hope this helps.

Thanks RalucaMorena. Yeah that does help - I don't know whether I have ovulated since my last period in December. My doc thinks I am still ovulating as I am still getting cramps etc. I have all the symptoms of a period just no blood!

Well... try using a cheap opk when you get the cramps. If it's positive then at least you know. They are stupid cheap on eBay and you won't feel guilty for wasting money on negative results ;).
