So after reading for a while on this forum I feel like I'm the only one with irregular cycles! :-( Mine are all kinds of screwey!!! Anyone else know my pain??? LOL I wish I could say, "af should arrive in the next 12-16 days" but I have yet to O even!!!! ARGH!! Okay, maybe this was just a vent post??

Girl..I feel ya. My cycles range from 30-45 days. I never know how long they will be from month to month. I t drives me nuts. Thismonth I thought me and hubby had a chance...but I had two - tests and I am starting to cramp. So.....looks like I am on to opk's. Thought we might not have to use them....but that was just hoping!

I tried to use OPK's one month and just couldn't keep up with it... LOL I may invest in the internet cheapies depending on how this cycle goes...... I'm SO glad that I'm not alone but then again so sorry that you too have to go through this as well!! My shortest cycle was 23 days and longest was 69 days... "Average" if there is such a thing is about 30-40 days.. I'm there with ya I guess! How long TTC??? Any kids yet? Do you know why your cycles are irregular??

megs: you might not have any idea but i'll ask you anyways since you seem to know what the average cycle is suposed to be.. do you know what is the shortest a cycle can be??

 

Megs - January 18

I guess, realistically, you could O during AF so maybe, just maybe and a bit far-fetched, 14-17 days??? Don't hold me to that but just a guesstimate! :-) Why?? haha.

We haven't really been trying, just going with the flow. But over five years, many many times not using protection, it makes me wonder why there were never any "accidents". I have no children of my own, but I have two stepchildren. I have no idea why my cycles are irregular. I haven't really investigated it that much..i might have to! I once mentioned something to my doctor..she said something briefly about me not ovulating and when I start trying to have a family, to come see her and she will run tests. Sooo gggreeaat. Can't wait for all that fun. Hopefully I won't have to go that far. What about you? Do you have children? Are you married? What are the issues with your irregular cycles?

was wondering cuz i just came off the pill and been on it for a long time.. already have 2 kids but they weren't planned and this one is... but i don't know if my cycles are the same or if they have changed.. i'm guessing that they would have?? i dunno lol.. i'm just confused and hoping.

 

Megs - January 18

Wow, I would investigate just so you know... I used to be like clockwork! That was prior to BCP... :-( I went off BCP's Feb. 2006, so almost a year ago. My cycles have yet to straighten out! I went to the Dr. in Oct. and was DX with PCOS. I'm considered "boarderline" so I'm trying to do something about it now. Losing weight, getting healthy, etc. Dr. told me too that six months before we want to start TTC to come see him and he'll put me on Metformin (which is a diabetic drug and I don't have any of those issues thank goodness!) and after six months put me on Clomid... I just didn't wnt to go that route yet. I had never tracked my cycle before so I figured this was the best route to go right now. :-) I am married, for 3 1/2 years! No kiddies, at all yet. Never been pregnant either. It was just really nice for me, personally, to know what was going on prior to entering the TTC game so that way month after month when I got a BFN it was more expected but still not welcomed. Ya know?? We also "went with the flow" between Feb. and Oct. prior to dr. visit and never had an "accident". We are now actively TTC and I gues we'll see what happens! If it's your thing, you may want to r eserach certain herbs/vitamins that may help regulat you. This is my first month using Vitex and Damiana which are both herbs to help regulate cycles and impregnante you! LOL :-) Look into them!

I have totally irregular cycles...my body is whacked!!!

 

MelissaP - January 18

Thanks Megs..where do you get those vitamins? In the store..or online? As far as I remember I was always irregular. But back when I was younger I didn't pay any attention to how long things were because as long as af stayed away I was happy....LOL. But I have been traking my cycles on mymonthlycycles for like close to three years and it's always the same.Between 30-45 days. I have never gone over 45 though, so I guess thats a good thing. It's some sort of consistence.

 

MammaJL - January 18

thanks megs... i'll look into that.. maybe next cycle if i don't get my bfp this one. they were 28 days on the pill.. so that would only make me due for af on the 3rd of feb.. but about a week or so ago i had a headache for 2 days then started feeling weird in my lower abdomen.. 2 days later i had spotting (very light pink/brown) and a little bit of cramping.. was thinking it could be implant bleeding but i don't know i don't remember having that for my other 2.. that was soooooo long ago though and i was young so even if i did i probably didn't notice.

 

Megs - January 18

Cerendipy, have you recently come off BCP's or do you know why you have such irregular cycles?? I just looked at your FF and wow! Yeah!

Girl I'm with ya. I feel your pain. LOL!! I used to be regular back in what seems like forever ago. Not really but it seems that ever since I started to try to TTC #2, it's all messed up. I just got AF (although not full flow yet) today CD52, so tomorrow CD1. UGH! WTF??? Did alot of testing with my RE and all tests show me fine so I don't know what the hell my problem is. BUT I do feel your pain and you aren't the only one.

 

Megs - January 18

Melissa, I go to my local Herb Shop but I have seen them online.. I'm just weird about that kinda stuff, I like to see WHO I'm buying it from!!! :-) MammaJL, coming off BCP's can REALLY mess with your body!! Good luck!!

 

Cerendipy - January 18

I did, in September. IT SUCKS! I don't think I will ever take BC ever again!!! Totally screwed me up. I have been on it for almost 8 years too, which I don't think helped...

 

Megs - January 18

mommywannabe, isn't it nice to know you aren't the ONLY one??? ;-) How long TTC Number 2???

 

Cerendipy - January 18

I am convinced my reproductive system hates me and my ovaries have one goal, and its not to ovulate...its TO DRIVE ME NUTS!!!
