Can I have anovulation due to lack of progesterone?

By Guillermo Quea Campos M.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 11/08/2022

La respuesta es no. Cuando hay falta de progesterona puede estar relacionado con ausencia de ovulación, pero no a la inversa.

Anovulation is one of the most frequent problems that gynaecologists encounter. Patients may present with oligomenorrhoea (infrequent menstrual cycles) or amenorrhoea (absence of one or more menstrual periods), in most cases presenting with anovulation, which significantly reduces their reproductive efficiency.

Occasionally, patients consult for dysfunctional metrorrhagia (prolonged and abundant bleeding), caused by oestrogens, since in the absence of ovulation there is no formation of the corpus luteum and therefore no production of progesterone.
