You need to release an egg every month only when you want to conceive (become pregnant). You are “normal,” meaning you and many other millions of women like you are infrequent (about 5-6x) ovulators, meaning your ovaries do not produce an egg every month. Therefore, there isn’t any need for your uterine lining to flush/washout/menstruate/shed the non-fertilized egg. You’ll be fine, don’t worry.
My periods are delayed by 45 days and my pregnancy test was negative. What could be the cause of my delayed periods?
1. reaction to soaps, powders, deodorants (yes some women do roll/spray deodorants)
2. wearing a mini-pad or tampon
3. tight undergarments or pants
4. sexual desire
