Anovulation: It's unclear, but you need a work up. Schedule an appt. With an infertility specialist.

See a REI specialist: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) does not help you to ovulate or get pregnant (if you're trying to conceive) but can be used to induce bleeding in women who aren't ovulating. See a rei specialist to get checked out - other than pcos, anovulation can be caused by thyroid or prolactin hormone problems, diminished ovarian reserve (low egg supply), or low hormone levels (hypogonadism) from exercise, stress or eating disorders.
