Pregnancy test: Typically, a 32 day cycle is considered the longest time span a cycle can be considered fertile, i.e, with ovulation happening that can lead to pregnancy. That does not mean if cycles are longer there is no ovulation. If a woman feels it is taking extraordinarily long for her to come on her period, a pregnancy test should be done.

After breastfeeding: Some women get their period back within a few months, some women don't get it for almost a year or more. If you are still breastfeeding you will likely not get your period until you stop or until you are feeding less frequently than every 5 hours or so, usually once your baby starts sleeping through the night.

There are several...: Some natural therapies may work, depending on why someone is not ovulating. For example, if it's due to pcos, then weight loss may help (if overweight). Acupuncture has helped some of my patients.. If it's anovulation due to anorexia, being too thin, or exercising too much, then weight gain may help (along with decreasing exercise). I hope this helps!
