Alexia Pena and colleagues present the findings of a prospective study of 40 caucasian Western Australian adolescents with irregular menstrual cycles. The study showed through menstrual diaries and urinary markers of ovulation that 80% of the girls ovulated within a three month period and that cycle duration ranged from 24 to 38 days. Thus busting the myth that irregular menstruation is a marker of anovulation.
