Re: Can we talk about anovulatory bleeding?

I used to have 27-29 day cycles that were annovulatory, so it is very possible. If you are breastfeeding this is even more likely as prolactin suppresses LH and FSH which reduces the amount of estrogen in your system. This keeps follicles and eggs from maturing. So you could have enough estrogen and then higher progesterone to make a thicker uterine lining, but not release an egg.
