Unusual: What you are describing is a condition called luf syndrome which is where you ovulate but no egg is released. It is controversial whether this even exists and if so would require serial ultrasounds and blood tests to diagnose. Almost all women who ovulate release an egg. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) can take a week after you finish for the period to start.
