An anovulatory cycle is a menstrual cycle where ovulation doesn’t happen (so no egg cell is released from the ovaries). Anovulation is relatively common, and most of us will experience it from time to time. To find out more about the causes and symptoms of anovulatory cycles head over to our blog post here.
The bleeding you may experience at the end of an anovulatory is caused by a lack of the hormone estrogen.
This bleeding should be logged as a period in the app, to let the algorithm know that a new cycle has started.
