In brief: Not always

The best marker for ovulation monthly is to have a menstrual cycle monthly.
If cycles are light, irregular and spaced out farther than 35 days, it is a sign you may not be ovulating regularly. There are many reasons for not ovulating and it may take a visit to your provider to get an explanation. If you do not ovulate regularly for many months or years there is an higher risk of uterine cancer.
