A few months ago i had a progestrone test on day 21 to see if i ovulated which i did. This month i did another test and it said i didnt ovulate. Is this possible and what would you suggest?
Is it possible that one ovulates some months and not others?

Dear NG

It is entirely possible that one ovary may be more responsive than the other, hence the ovulation occurring on an erratic basis. In such cases ovulation induction is a better option since both ovaries will be stimulated simultaneously, with the increased likelihood of ovulation occurring on both sides and therefore an increased likelihood of pregnancy occurring.
