When your ovaries do not release an egg on a regular basis (monthly cycle) this is called unovulation.
Symptoms of unovulation can include irregular or no menstruation, excessive menstrual bleeding, and irregular core body temperature. Left untreated anovulation can lead to infertility.
What causes unovulation?
Hormonal imbalances often cause unovulation. Factors that can trigger hormonal imbalances are:
- Fluctuations in body weight
- Eating disorders
- Breast feeding
- Excessive exercise
- Polycystic Ovaries
Unovulation can be treated. In the first instance visit your GP. You may be referred to a specialist consultant who can confirm your diagnosis using blood tests, further physical examination and ultrasound scanning.
