In brief: See below

In women struggling through peri-menopausal transition, cycles where you do not ovulate are common.
This is similar to being stuck in the first half of your cycle where estrogen is the dominant hormone. This can be balanced by either taking birth control pills, or using Progesterone (provera (medroxyprogesterone) for example) during the latter half of each cycle. Talk to your doctor.
