Anovulatory cycle: With a normal cycle you ovulate 2 weeks before your period. Sooner or later most women have a cycle where they fail to ovulate & then menses might come sooner or later & be heavier or lighter. This is probably a random event but could be caused by thyroid problems, infection, stress, side effects of drugs, nutrient deficiencies etc. Your cycle will probably return to normal-if not see your doctor.
