Hormonal: Most problems are structural or hormonal. Assuming your previous cycles were normal and the test was on concentrated urine then i would assume ovulatory dysfunction is the cause. Progesterone may fix it. Always think tubal pregnancy. Could be infection less likely if monogamous. Re ck the test and if it doesn't clear see a gyn.
