This will be entirely theoretical, hopefully someone like Cam can come along and proofread this and point out any errors...
K, Wellbutrin is theorized to increase dopamine functioning. Increased dopamine is associated with increased levels of prolactin. Increased levels of prolactin are associated with decreased levels of FSH and LH. Decreased levels of FSH and LH probably reduce (or is it increase?...thought it was decrease) estrogen and progesterone, which would throw your cycle off and perhaps prevent the ovulation. Main reason I'm unsure of this though is I've never heard of it happening to anyone else, and I'd think if it did increase dopamine function to that extent, we'd have some guys complaining of gynemocasteia from too much prolactin.

If my theory is right, you would benefit from some bromocriptine (D2 autorecptor agonist) or chaste berry (tends to lower prolactin and increase fsh and lh), but I'm far from sure of it.
