Ovulatory Cycles Information
Menstrual bleeding with Ovulatory Cycles is spontaneous, regular in onset, predictable in duration an damount of flow, and frequently associated with discomfort. Ovulatory Cycles is the consequence of progesterone withdrawal at the end of the luteal phase and requires prior estogen priming of the endometrium during the follicular phase of the cycle.
Causes of Ovulatory Cycles
When deviations from an established pattern of menstrual flow occur but the cycles are still regular, the usual cause is disease of the outflow tract. For example, regular, prolonged, excessive bleeding episodes can result from abnormalities of the uterus such as subnucous leiomyomas, adenomysis or endometrial polyps.
ON the other hand, cyclic, predictable menstruation characterized by spotting or light bleeding suggests obstruction of the outflow tract as with uterine synechiae or scarring of teh cervix. Intermittent bleeding between cyclic ovulatory menses is often due to cervical or endometrial lesions.
