I haven't had af since Jan. 5th. I was due Feb. 2nd.....nothing -- BUT..I had a day & 1/2 of light light spotting on Feb. 8th & 9th (6 days late). I was due again on March 2nd.....nothing. Figured maybe the spotting was a period...so then figured well maybe I was due today, March 8th...nothing. All I know is I'm not that young where the cycles are still regulating...haven't been on any birth control for at LEAST 5 years & have ALWAYS been regular except for a day or two every month..always 28 days. Urine tests coming out negative (although I've only been taking the dollar store tests). I guess I myeswell schedule a doctors appt. as I need to figure out what's going on. My tastes have COMPLETELY changed (have some weird cravings, also)-- dizzy all the time (fainted one night for no reason...kind of scary!!)...had headaches there for a few weeks NONSTOP (thankfully that went away)..now my br___ts have gotten a little bit fuller & my nipples hurt terribly (this just started yesterday). I'm small chested so it's kinda nice :) Anyways...when af was due this month on the 2nd, I was POSITIVE af was coming..kept running to the bathroom...but nothing! I keep having cramping off & on....Also...my temperature has always (whole life) been towards the low end of normal...97.2..97.4..97.6. Since I started taking my temp when af was due in February...it's been anywhere from 98.2 to 99.0...I stopped taking it for a week or two & just took it again yesterday morning...still 98.6. Could this be a cyst?? (does your temp stay high with cysts?) Or does it sound like pregnancy?..if pregnancy, I'd only be going on 9 weeks.

Also wanted to note that I have been EXTREMELY tired (can't get enough sleep & just feel weak)....get out of breath easily & get waves of nausea...but if I eat something it seems to go away. Also -- the past two nights I had TERRIBLE heartburn. I actually stopped at a gas station last night & bought a little tub of ice cream (which I ate all of it!!!)...but it still didn't help with the heartburn.

There is no reason to say "they were only dollar store tests," because those are some of the most sensitive tests around, despite their price. It does sound like you could have a cyst. You really should see a doctor. It sounds to me like it's time to request a blood test. When you say that you've been taking your temperature, is that in the mornings before getting out of bed or at any old time of the day? That's very important.

My temps taken every morning at 6:30 when the alarm goes off. I have also taken it later in the day too (just to see if it went higher or lower) & it's stayed pretty much the same. Can cysts cause the high temps also?

quick question sweetie... Does AF stand for aunt flow???

quick question sweetie... Does AF stand for aunt flow??? I am having a bit of the same problem... please email me at danipjames at gmail.com

when taking your basal body temperature you should make sure you take it before getting out of bed in the morning. If it is above 98.0F then that is about 97% suggestive that you are pregnant... If in fact your temperature stays regulated above 98.0 for 16days after ovulation... Danielle

I keep my therm. underneath my pillow...the only movement I do is roll over & turn off my alarm :)

Danielle.....would my temp. still be high (above 98...it hasn't been lower than 98.2 since back the first week of Feb.) this long into March?? Or does the temp. stay high for a few weeks & then go back down to normal. Guess I'm just wondering if the temp stays high throughout one's pregnancy...

oh....answer to your question. Yes...af means aunt flow (aka your period).

Yes, a cyst can artificially elevate your temp by causing your body to pump out extra progesterone. See a doctor and request a quant_tative blood test. If your doc's a good one, s/he'll do an u/s to check for a cyst, too.

Now I'm really confused....I'm trying to get into a doctor asap...but everywhere I call can't see me for 3 to 5 weeks!! Anyways, I woke up this morning & went to the bathroom....there was RED blood with the urine. Figured, ok...that's weird as I didn't feel like af was coming whatsoever ...put a pad on & went to work. Come home about 5 hours later & barely made it to the bathroom as I had to pee so bad... :) Anyways, all there is on the pad is just a little bit of brown spotting, but there was RED blood with the urine again. I am cramping a little now, too...but not any worse than I have been the past few weeks off & on. Should this be considered a period since there's red blood in the toilet or spotting as there's only a few spots on the pad? ....

Also wanted to note that my temperature was even higher this morning at 99.0....isn't that supposed to go down once af starts?...if this is af.

I'd still ask for a blood test - can't you go to a clinic if your family doc can't get you in? If you're still only spotting you really want to find out what's going on... good luck.

Will clinics accept benefits? That's the reason I'm waiting for an appt. I finally got benefits....& would like to use them :) ..For some reason today, though, I've had this pressure on my bladder that I just HAVE to go very often. I still have NO red blood on the pad (some brown blood), but it usually (not every time) comes out in the toilet red.
