Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  It's sometimes normal for some women, to not ovulate or get their periods every month.  But, in some cases it can also be caused by other conditions. Such as Endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids, and many other.  All these conditions can lead to fertility problems and also cause changes in a woman's menstrual cycle.  If you feel concerned, it might be best to be examined by a fertility specialist.  Hope this was helpful?
