Implantation Bleeding / no ovulation

Please could you tell me when implantation bleeding occurs and how it could be described.

Also, what are possible causes for not ovulating and how could it be resolved?

Thank you

Implantation bleeding usually occurs round about the time of an expected period, but is much less in amount.
Possible causes for not ovulating are thyroid disorders, tumours of the milk producing gland, PCOS, stress, weight loss or gain. You would need some tests to determine the cause and the treatment would depend on the underlying cause.
