No: If you have no ovulation you can not have ectopic pregnancy. Pregnancy can happen only if there is ovum and sperm.

Ectopic: You will not get pregnant , even tubal pregnancy(ectopic) when you're having an anovulatiry cycle.

No: A corpus luteum cyst is the cyst that remains after an egg is released during ovulation. If you become pregnant, that cyst helps maintain the early pregnancy. While you can have bleeding with an ectopic pregnancy, ovulation would have to occur in order to become pregnant in the first place.

No: Anovulation is when no egg is released to allow pregnancy to occur.
