  • It's true that not everyone ovulates every month. Ovulation can be affected by stress, illness or disruption of normal routines. Also Ovulation can occur even if a menstrual period has not occurred, so some may think because they didn't have a period, that they didn't ovulate when actually they may have.

  • most healthy people ovulate every month, but there is health problems including getting the flu or a cold, and even stress that can cause a women to skip a month.

  • Even the most regular of women can have an anovulatory cycle once in a while. In the 3+ years that I've been charting, I've only had one, so it's not very common, but it does happen. If it's common for a particular woman to have anovulatory cycles, then there's probably something wrong, like PCOS, and she should have a doctor check it out. But in general, that is true, though it shouldn't happen often enough to make much of a difference.
