Irregular Periods Suck

MrsW - October 6

Anyone with me? My period used to be somewhat regular when I was younger. I was on the pill for a year, and ever since I stopped that in Feb. my period has been all out of whack. It's been 8 months, shouldn't it be better by now? I mean, I got my period at the expected time the first month that I was off the pill, then my cycle was 31 days, 32 days, 44 days, then in July i didn't even get a real period, just that dark brown discharge stuff i've heard women mention on here, then if you count that as a period, the next cycle was 35 days, and right now I'm on day 36 and still no period!! grrrrr, if only nature was good to me, and gave me a regular period so that being one or two days late would actually signify something (preferrably pregnancy!) Anyone else feel like ranting? Go right ahead! hehe

yeah im right there with you. i just stopped the pill in july. August everything went according to plan and it came on and went off just like it should. then comes september, and i have this reall light brownish spotting one day a couple weeks after having s_x, then another week i had really dark brown discharge that lasted one week. that happened a week before my period was due. and nothing happened since. i haven't had a real period since august. and knowing how it is, i automatically a__sumed pregnancy! i took so many test, that i know i could've paid my bills off with the money i spent. lol. but yeah, still no sign of af, and i don't have any pregnancy symptoms, so i dismissed that thought. Darn irregular cycles! Oh i forgot to mention i have always been irregular since i was about 16 from pcos. i hate it!

What's pcos?

I am the epitome of irregular cycles. My cycles have always ranged anywhere from 35 days to 6 months! It's awful never knowing when AF is due, when ovulation might occur. Temping is pointless since there is no pattern. OPKs are just a waste of money since I never know when to start using them. It makes it especially difficult having irregular cycles when TTC --- but I am also living proof that it is possible, as I am about 8 weeks pregnant right now, so don't lose the faith. It took me forever to get here, but once I finally have that sweet little baby in my arms, my wait will have been worthwhile. :) My irregularity is for unknown reasons too, which made it that much worse when trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Turns out nothing is wrong with me, I just don't have regular cycles. No PCOS, nothing. Crazy huh? Some of us are just on different timers than everyone else. --- Oh, and MRSW... PCOS = Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome --- Anyway.. keep the faith, girls! Even us irregulars can get preggers too!

yeah pcos is a condition pretty much saying that you have(or may not have) cyst on your ovaries and it has a whole bunch of symptoms such as access facial hair, weight gain, and irregular period. it sucks. but i am trying to stay postive that i can become pregnant. right now i dont think i am even though i've missed 2 periods. i would love to be, but i dont think the timing is just right anyways. my bf and i just called it quits after 6 years. so i dont wanna have to go back to him if i dont have to. but its funny cause somewhere deep down inside. i wanna be pregnant. i guess its just some women's nature. =)
