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!

Cycle Perplexities I pregnant? could something be wrong?

My last period was around the 17th of April, I have never been late, Im almost exactly a month apart every month. The thing is, my husband works out of town this summer so we only see eachother for a few days each month, the last time on the 6-12th of May, and we were very careful. So as of now I am 2 weeks or so late, and all three pregnancy tests have been negative. If I am pregnant I would be at least 3.5-4 weeks pregnant. I have been cramping lightly for over a week and yesterday i had light spotting that happened once and hasnt happened since. Should I go to the Dr? or..? I have insurance through university but its a 60 min drive to campus so I have been trying to wait if its going to be un-nessasary. Any thoughts? never been pregnant before. :)

waky periods all year.

This year has been interesting to say the least. I didn't have a period in January, then February was light and I missed my af in march as well. Then in April I had a 14 day long period and the doctors couldn't tell me what was the reason for it. I am now 11 days late with no nausea. I feel like I am pms'ing but no af! Frustrated!

pregnant or is my body just being quirky?

Hi, I am 26 years old and my cycle is usually about 30-31 days on average. I am 12 days late on my period and beginning to wonder if maybe I should take a test or see the doctor... what are the chances that I could be pregnant?

always irregular

My cycle has always been irregular, since high school. Before my first child eight years ago I had only four periods a year. Now after my second its been worse. I never know when I'll have a period.

I had two periods in March (1-3) and (29-31). My questiosn is which period do I base my calculations on?

If I use the 1-3 then I'm late for my April cycle. If I use 29-31 then I have til next week.

So confused...iritated...anyone else have problems like this?

odd cycle lengths--based on ovulation!

Hey gals! I can tend to track when my period is going to be and how long my cycle length will be based on which ovary I ovulated from. I can feel the ovulation pains and sometimes get a little blood tinged CM. On my Right ovary, the cycle length is always shorter. The periods are more intense. i have many more "am I pregnant/PMS" symptoms. My Left ovary ovulating seems to be very very light and takes a while for it to actually happen. More of a typical cycle. My R will actually wait a week after my period then ovulate.
Has anyone else noticed this?

3-week Mega Period! (may be TMI for some)

I gave birth in July and breastfed until my milk dried up in January. When I was pretty well dry I started spotting (late December/early Jan.) and had a 10-day, super-light period in late January. I started using some progesterone cream to get my hormones back on track.
Then nothing for weeks. I hadn't been taking my BBT, so I don't know if I ovulated. March 11 I started spotting a bit, and by 3/12 it was full, heavy, regular day 2 stuff for me...I thought. My periods never used to last more than 6 days. Now it's been almost 3 weeks (20 days today)! Most has been what I used to consider "heavy bleeding", and some days worse than I believed possible--almost like day 1 postpartum with lots of tissue (not clots). I talked with an OB and they said it was probably hormonal, as my TSH and such were OK. I figure I was building a thick lining for the last 8 months and this is the first time it's really shed. Still, I'm ready to be DONE! Taking my temp, and at least haven't ovulated during AF. We're TTC again, so that would be a real bummer.
Oh, after 12 days of heavy bleeding I did some research into herbal emmenagogues to try to get things going. I took an infusion of raspberry leaf, nettle, and red clover with ginger juice and several drops of blue cohosh tincture, and this really jump-started things. Before taking this I had been bleeding lots but very little endometrium was being shed (I use a cup so I can monitor). Afterwards, I started losing more tissue than I thought it was possible to have! I think the reason I hadn't gotten PG yet was that there was too much lining for the sperm to get through!
Now I'm down to little bits of dark red blood, like what my days 4-6 used to be. Hoping to be done today!
