Anovulatory cycle question

Postby Nic&la » Tue Dec 08, 2015 3:11 pm

Hi, can anyone help me with this, I've researched and researched and can't seem to find the answer.

If you have an anovulatory cycle will your withdrawal bleed be the same time as if it were a normal cycle?

My cycles are typically 40-45 days long, I'm now on CD24 so around the time of my usual O but I don't think I'm going to ovulate this cycle due to hormonal lows, no CM, and Nth day of flashing smily face....I could be wrong and Ovulation Station is just round the corner....but if it's not then when should I expect bleeding? My LP is 17 days which (lucky me) is Christmas. Is it likely I will bleed around then still? I guess what I'm getting at is when can I expect to start a new cycle so I can start preparing for O again?

Or does the cycle never actually end and continues until Ovulation occurs, however long?

I don't personally have any experience with this, but I know many women who have contacted their doctor and taken Provera to kick start af. I'm honestly not sure how long after, if at all you would get af without O. Maybe try posting your question in the PCOS section. You might get more answers. Sorry I couldn't help more!

Thanks Southernbelle :-) i hadn't appreciated there is a dedicated PCOS forum, I'll repost there. Hopefully there is an answer out there somewhere! I heard that most women experience anovulatory cycles from time to time so someone is bound to have more knowledge. I suppose on BCP all 'cycles' are anovulatory so I guess the trigger there is hormonal. Hmmm

Anyways thanks v much :-)

If you don't get many responses you can try the General TTC section. That section gets a lot of traffic. Surely someone's experienced this before.
