How Long Until Normal Cycles Returned

Hi all--I had a m/c on 12/9/06 (I was at 9w) and the bleeding lasted until 12/31. I then had a regular af 1/22 - 1/26. Before the m/c, my cycles were always 24-26 days, no irregularity. Today is day 32, and still no sign of af. I've already taken 2 HPT and both were negative. I have been stressed this week (both at work and with having my s-i-l give birth this week to a totally unplanned pregnancy, one with no complications...which brought up lots of sadness I thought I was getting over). Anyways, how long did it take for any of you to get back to regular cycles? I keep imagining I'm feeling pregnancy symptoms but do not want to see another stupid negative sign on the little stick if af is coming...thanks for your help.

Hi jdstrong80. My mc was after yours and I am waiting for + or af so I can't answer from personal experience I have heard it can take several cycles to get back to normal, and that normal might be a different number of days after as though it reset our clock. I'm collecting negative hpt's too. I'm still hoping though... Hang in there!

I've read from others that the dollar tree is the best place to get the tests....I need to do that, b/c otherwise it's getting expensive! Good luck seeing a +

hi jdstrong! I think I posted this somewhere but today is cd 32 I think sinc m/c started and I should be getting AF anytime now (I temp and they dropped) and I've had some spotting. Definitely hit up the dollar tree if you have one because the tests are a steal for $1 a piece. Their sensitivity is 25miU which is as low if not lower than all the early pregnancy tests that are more expensive. I don't think (might be now) they are listed on so a lot of people don't know about them. Good luck!!!!!!

jd, yeah, expensive is right! Stef, peeonastic is one of my favorite sites! I also like tcoyf cycle gallery at because I can look at LOTS of other people's charts while I try to figure out mine.

that's funny, I love that site too! I remember when my bfp chart went nuts at the end temp wise, I thought for sure I was NOT pregnant so I found that site and looked for others like mine. It was the only place that I found charts that matched up to mine and were pregnant--and lo and behold I was!
