    About the Lecture

    The lecture Anovulatory Cycle by Carlo Raj, MD is from the course Uterine and Fallopian Tube Disease.

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Proliferation of endometrium is driven by estrogen, but as progesterone is absent due to failure of ovulation, the endometrium sheds when it can no longer be supported by the low blood supply

    3. Failure of the hypothalamus leads to absence of FSH and LH in the blood stream. The uterine blood vessels become obliterated. Hence, there is little to no menstrual bleeding
    4. Inadequate testosterone production by ovarian cells leads to excessive menstrual bleeding due to lack of estrogen counteraction.
    5. Anovulation leads to excessive stimulation of the pituitary by ovarian hormones, which increases FSH production, leading to early menopause
