So as it turns out, I know next to nothing about anovulatory cycles, and all of a sudden it would maybe be useful.

Salient facts: I have stage IV endometriosis; my pronouns are "they".


Up until pretty recently, my periods were generally medium-heavy, very painful, and about 29 days long (plus or minus four days either way...) with about 7 days of bleeding. I'd also started getting something I think is probably ovulation pain/Mittelschmerz.

For the last few months, I've (a) had longer cycles, (b) not had severe pain at the beginning of my period, and (c) only bled for about 3 days, and very very lightly, at that. Also relevant: at the beginning of my last period, I had an ovarian cyst burst (as near as we can make out), on an ovary that has one remaining cyst (1.7cm diameter). My other ovary looks normal in ultrasound.

Does that sound like anovulatory cycles? Because if so, I'm wondering whether that's likely to be related to changes in the way my endo is behaving, and what that means for The Future...
