No period no cycle: The "period" is the process of renewal for the lining of the uterus in case a fertilized egg comes in. The same hormones drive both. In a healthy female, there has to be an explanation for a missed period: pregnancy, hormonal disturbance or problem in the uterus. ...Read more

I missed my period last month, is it possible to still ovulate?

How to find out when I'm ovulating after missed period?

How to find out when I'm ovulating after missed period?

When ovulating: Knowing your Gyn and other history would be important. If you are sexually active and usually have regular periods, I would first want to determine if you are pregnant.
