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!

Everything out of place!

SO... I've never written on here before, so I'll try to keep it short and simple (...unlike my cycle!)

My July period was due on the 3rd but came on June 29 instead. I don't chart BBT, but I do track my periods and have done so religiously for about a year, so I know that my period should come EVERY 30 DAYS. I'm never ever early and usually last a full 7 days. This month, I was 4 days early, and my period lasted only 4 1/2 days. The flow was pretty normal and accompanied by the usual unbearable cramps, but it began and ended so soon!

So now I'm on CD 10 (according to the date that I got my period) and am having increasingly painful back/lower abdomen cramps. They feel like AF cramps except that they're in my back more than my tummy.

What could be going on with me? I took one hpt the 5th (I think?) and it was negative. Have been bloated and extra hungry, but no other pregnancy symptoms.

Oh, and I guess it helps to know that the last time DH and I made love was June 14.

Any opinions/thought would be greatly appreciated! :)

To sum it up:
Normal cycle length: 30 days
Normal AF duration: 7 days
Expected LMP: July 3
Actual LMP: June 29
Actual duration of LMP: 4 1/2 days

13days late and neg HPT at 4days late - could I be pregnant?

This is the first I have wrote on here... My period is late it was supposed to be here on the 21st June and still no sign on 3rd July - it usually would be out now and again by a day or two and twice in the past I have went to 6weeks without a period but now it is almost 7weeks (on Monday) I am currently 12days late. I am TTC and I did a HPT on 25th June at 4days late and it was negative :( I am afraid to do another one incase of another negative... Do you think I could be pregnant or am I definately not because of my first negative?? Help..
I feel totally normal accept abit sensitive from time to time and breasts were sore a week or more ago but fine now...

Cycle getting longer and longer

My cycle has been very regular every since I was in my teens (I'm 32 now). It's been reliably 27-28 days ever since I went off BC pills in my mid twenties. Even after both my pregnancies, it returned to a reliable 27 day cycle.

Last month it was 33 days and this month I'm on day 38 with still no AF in sight. Last month, I was quite worried I was pregnant because I've never been that late before. This month, I'm certain I'm not pregnant.

So what's going on then? Is my cycle just changing because I'm getting older? I haven't been overly stressed and my weight/diet haven't changed recently. At what point should I head in to the dr?

I have been irregular since starting my period again giving birth last july. I fear i had a chemical pregnancy last month with "AF" showing on the 10th June, was feeing very crampy yest and last night noticed some blood tinged cm and a few spots of blood when wiping. Can you spot during ovulation? Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks

Wacky Period Forever!

To start, I've NEVER been regular, with the short exception of the three separate occassions I've tried to take BC pills. My cycle, via the last 5 years of tracking on this site, has been anywhere from 28 (on BC) to 63 days. When I started dating my boyfriend in December, I noted that I had 5 regular periods in a row, all occuring on day 33 (December-May). Now I'm at day 45 and no real sign of a period. My PMS this time around has been insane. I show signs of PMDD (mostly the panic attacks), and yet this cycle I only had one single attack when I usually have a good solid 3 days of attacks. About two months ago, I had taken Plan B as a result of a broken condom, but got my period in May on day 33, after taking the pill.

I guess my question is, am I alone in this? I have my suspicions of endometriosis, but has never been confirmed at gyno visits. It's quite frustrating, and I've taken way too many PG tests in my life than I'd care to admit. I'm 22, and not ready for parenthood. Any info/suggestions/help you can throw my way will be quite helpful!

How to delay a period

I don't know if this is the right section for this post, but here goes. I usually have a 28 DC, but lately it has been a 27 DC. I know this seems picky, but I used the period calculator on here to try to plan my wedding on a day that I didn't get my period. Now it looks like it could happen. I get horrible pms, so I'm a little worried it's going to be super annoying. Anybody have any ideas how to "throw off" a period about a week. I don't want to go on birth control at this point because we're going to TTC soon after the wedding. I know it's a stretch. Should I just pray for a miracle at this point?
