Anovulation means "lack of ovulation." Some women do not ovulate regularly, they may only ovulate every few cycles, or not at all. A woman can have what seems like regular periods and still not ovulate. Though, more often than not, her periods are not normal at all. She may have no periods as a result of no ovulation, or her periods may be very heavy and far apart. Women with anovulatory cycles generally have irregular spotting between periods, or if they don't, they have long periods that are often painless.
