I'm not sure where you have gotten your information. The book I'm referencing (Taking Charge of Your Fertility) though says you definitely cannot ovulate twice in one cycle. You can have multiple ovulation where you release more than one egg during ovulation, but that can only happen within 24 hours of the first egg release. Toni Weschler, the book's author, emphasizes that you cannot ovulate days apart--that once you ovulate, you cannot ovulate again until another cycle progresses. However, sometimes something like stress will keep your body from ovulating (so you end up ovulating later than usual during your cycle), but before that stress, your body is preparing to ovulate, so sometimes your body can mimic ovulation side effects without actually ovulating. The only way to know for sure whether you ovulated is by keeping track of your temperature. So, it's possible that in the situation you mentioned, that you felt a physical symptom of ovulation (the pain) without actually ovulating until later in the month.
Also ovulation cannot happen spontaneously, as there needs to be a continuous build up of the hormone estrogen in order for ovulation to take place and this needs to happen over a period of time. However, heightened sexual awareness and desire occurs as the estrogen builds up, so women tend to be hornier around the time of ovulation, so this may be what you are talking about.
The book also claims that after the egg is released, it begins to disintegrate in 6-24 hours, which is why you should err on the side of caution and assume 24! :-)
And, yes the cervical mucous is the secretions.
I hope I haven't misunderstood anything you've said. I must say, your English is quite good if you can write in English using medical terms!
It is an interesting question, though - since we are meant to be pregnant or breastfeeding for most of our childbearing years, does the pill come closer to mimicking that than years of not having babies? I'm just wondering because hormonal birth control confers some protection from ovarian and endometrial cancer, just as multiple pregnancies do. I certainly do not think that the pill is perfect or primal. I'm just thinkin'
I hated the pill. Hormonal bc wreaked havoc on my body, and I'm so happy to not be on it! We happily used condoms (I seriously don't get the big deal) and now hubby had a vasectomy. I will say that pulling out does not work! My sister got pregnant using that "method" and so did one of my closest friends in high school.
Doesn't bc cause increased risk of cancer?

I know not if you are planning to have kids in the future, but once you're done it's nice to have that worry off your shoulders for-evah!

+1 for Mirena. Less hormones than pills, and NO PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!! Love it!! I went off the pill because after 15yrs I was tired of it; it wasn't giving me any problems, I'd just had enough. My doc said that was pretty common. I was thinking of getting sterilized but I like Mirena so much now I can't be bothered.
