No : By definition amenorrhea is lack of ovulation. However, women with amenorrhea can resolve spontaneously and ovulate.

Sometimes: Although amenorrhea often signals that ovulation isn't happening, you shouldn't assume that you can't get pregnant just because you aren't having regular periods. If you are trying to get pregnant, and have questions about your cycle, you should see a healthcare provider. Similarly, if you aren't having periods and you did previously, you should get checked out!
