Signs and Symptoms
Anovulation is usually associated with specific symptoms. However, it is important to note that they are not necessarily all displayed simultaneously.
- Amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) occurs in about 20% of women with ovulatory dysfunction.
- Infrequent and light menstruations occur in about 40% of women with ovulatory dysfunction.
- Irregular menstruation, where five or more menstrual cycles a year are five or more days shorter or longer than the length of the average cycle.
- Absence of mastodynia (breast pain or tenderness) occurs in about 20% of women with ovulatory problems.
- Increased body mass and facial hair (this is relatively easy to treat, and is often associated with PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome).
