Regular periods = ovulation?

Good morning Doc,

If I have very regular periods... does it mean that I ovulate or could I have regular periods and not ovulate?

Thank you kindly,

Dear Bee

In the majority of cases, this is true. However, in some rare instances, menstruation may occur regularly without egg release (ovulation) e.g. luteinised unruptured follicle syndrome (IUF syndrome), empty follicle syndrome (EFS) or in some cases of advance or severe polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
