Cycle Perplexities

Is your cycle misbehaving? Like your usual N-day menstrual cycle is all of a sudden longer or shorter, or you're spotting where AF should be here in full force, or PMS symptoms but no sign of AF? And has it got you thinking (...pregnant?), or generally confused or stressed or time to call the OB/Gyn? CycleView your cycle!

Why are my periods coming later and later?

Well, it's been a while since I've been on here. I'm 29 almost 30 years old. I had a miscarriage Sept. 20, 2009 at 5 weeks 3 days. I have DD 7 years old. I've noticed that since I got back from a trip in June that my periods are coming later. I was on a 28 day cyle but then in June it was 33 days and July it was 39 days. I keep saying that stress may be a contributing factor since I have gone through different scenarios that have triggered stress and worry, but I'm also wondering is this the start of my body adjusting to pre-menopause? I'm getting worried because I DO want another baby but would love to be able to track my ovulation once again with my CM (have always been able to). Up until June I haven't noticed any CM during ovulation. Any suggestions? My last visit to my OB/GYN cleared me of everything so I'm healthy as can be.

Should I get my hopes up?

My husband and I have been actively TTC for 4 months (July was our 4th month). Out of the past 4 months I have had one cycle last 28 days and the rest are 29 days. I am a day late as of now. I have never been late or missed a period in my life due to stress, etc. AF is no where to be found. I don't have any major "pregnancy" symptoms but I have cramping with no period and my lower back hurts. I also experienced some cramping during this month. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests (one earlier today the rest all last week) and all 3 have come back BFN. How long should I wait til I see the doctor?

Well this is my very first time posting anything, but this has been bothering me and I'm not really sure what was up with my cycle this month. My shortest cycle is 26 days and my longest cycle is 30 days with an average of 28 days & a duration of 7 days. My flow is usally pretty heavy in the beginning and gets light the last couple days. PMS symptoms I usually get are sore bbs cramps & bloating that go away once af starts. Then once af starts I get mild-moderate lower back ache (ugh!!!) that lasts the entire first day and mildly into the 2nd day. In June I had a regular cycle, but this month totally did something different.

I don't know how to track my ovulation so I have no idea when we ovulate, but based on the prediction on my montly cycle my possible ovulation day was July 3rd. We bd'd all around that week and then some lol...So CD 18 i had bloating and cramps that went away by then end of the day, CD 22 i got a mild lower backache & headache. CD 24-26 I had bloating cramps mild constipation headaches so I thought for sure af was coming (it was due July 17th). Then CD 27-30 I got no symptoms at all, no sore bbs nothing.CD 30 came & still nothing, then on CD 31 while I was at work there was a little pink on the tp when i wiped. So I thought okay its here, but then I went to the bathroom a couple of hours later and nothing, not even the pink on the tp (what the heck)??? That never happened before. We bd'd that night it was pretty late almost midnite & still nothing??? When I woke up the next morning it would have been CD 32 but then there was blood. Not very much and it wasn't as heavy as my periods normally are but it definitly wasn't spotting. It was probably a medium flow the first 3 days then back to spotting for 2 days and then nothing again. So I'm just confused??? Sorry this is long but just wondering what you all think???

Mid cycle spotting, SO confused.

I have been having a lot of strange feelings lately. Last month I was near convinced that I was pregnant. I had sore BBs, occasional nausea (no vomiting) , wild mood swings, a definite widening of my hips(among a plethora of other odd symptoms) ... but a loss of weight.

I should probably mention that my cycle is running 31 days on average and is fairly regular.

I broke down and tested near the end of my cycle. The test came up negative. I got AF a day or two later. It was much shorter and lighter, with no cramping whatsoever. But it was definitely more than spotting.

About a week ago, my husband told me that he thought I was pregnant. He sited my emotions, telling me that he has only ever seen a woman like this once before, and that she was in early pregnancy at the time. So, we went and bought a test... which we took on cycle day 11 or 12. It also came back negative.

Now comes the really strange and confusing bit... Between cycle day 9 and cycle day 14 (July 17-22) I have had what feels like the symptoms of a UTI show up and leave on three separate days. I have gotten rid of the symptoms each time by flushing my system with water.

On cycle day 12 I had just the tiniest bit of spotting on the tissue when I wiped. It was just a touch darker than urine. On cycle day 14 (yesterday) I had a bit of brown spotting. Just BARELY noticeable on the pad, more so on the tissue when I wiped.

It cleared up at the end of the evening, and has not happened at all today.

Does anyone know what this could be? I have scoured the internet and found a lot of possibilities (some frightening and some not) But does anyone know from experience?

I would have suspected implantation, but for the fact that it happened several days *before* I was due to ovulate. For the record, I have never had mid-cycle bleeding before. IE- I never bleed when I ovulate.

Longest Period ever?

Should I be worried if my period has lasted for over two weeks now? It's been very light the entire time with lots of clots and the color has usually been shades of brown.

It started to be super light to spotting about 5 days ago but it hasn't stopped yet.

Do you think this irregularity (I've also had two periods last month) is because I started rigorously exercising every day for the past two months?

suddenly different periods and now spotting...

I wrote on here before when all of this started but i thought i should add to the story since my period has yet to straighten up lol. In June my period came early which was kind of strange because i'm never early, also it didn't last as long as it normally does. I was feeling like something was up, kind of this "pregnant" feeling, but i did not have sex around the time i would have been ovulating in May and even if i had, i have the copper iud. But just to be on the safe side during June i took 3 hpts, all negative. So i figured it was stress and went about my life, Then when it came time to have my period in july it was 3 days late, also never happens. i'm always 27 days apart and last for 7 days. But this one in july started with two days of light spotting (has never happened before) and then i bled for 3 days and spotted for 1 more. normally i bleed very heavy for 5 or 6 days and then spot for this one was totally different for me. Then to top it off, I am now ovulating and for the last two days have been spotting a tiny tiny bit..Just like a little on the toilet paper once or twice during the day. I've also been having headaches, backache, major fatigue, lower abdominal pain, feeling a little sick, smells bother me, and i just "feel" like something is up. So i did some searching on the internet and have heard everything from stds, infection, serious medical condition, to early pregnancy signs...and needless to say i'm worried. the stress isn't helping. I made an appointment to see my doc Friday, the 23rd, so i will be sure to update on here in case anyone else is having a similiar problem. If anyone has any idea or has gone through something similiar before please share your story..i feel like i'm losing my mind.
