I'm barely getting ads this last week

Briefly describe your issue:
I normally get an average of 50 -55 ads per work day. Now this week I am barely getting anything. I’m receiving maybe 7-9 ads in a whole 12 hour day that I’m online.
I have completely cleared by temp files, cache, not sure if it would make a difference, but I flushed dns, reset tcpip and winsock cat. I also disabled my antivirus for a few hours.
If I toggle on and off my ads option in Brave is will usually cause one to two ads to pop up within a minute, but then I will go hours again with nothing until I toggle it again.
before this month I never had to toggle the ads button. I just get ads as I should.
