In brief: Preg vs no egg

If you are not pregnant, it may be a sign you didn't produce an egg that month.
Usually when the menstrual cycle is not regular, ovulation is not occurring regularly. When ovulation occurs, the period will happen 14 days later predictably. When ovulation does not occur, the period happens unpredictably when the lining outgrows its blood supply or becomes unstable.
