It's very frustrating. I started taking agnus castus (vitex) as I was told this could help regulate my cycles. After one week of terrible PMT ( sore boobs, nausea, dizzy, headaches, upset stomach) I stopped taking them. I've got a few commitments this week then I'm going to start taking them again.
I've taken 4 pregnancy tests just to ensure I'm not pregnant.
I've decided if things don't improve in next couple of months i will book to see our local female doctor. Especially as we are wanting to TTC January 12
Aww thanks! Oh god I feel u waiting so long for af must be so hard!!
I'm lying here at the minute with really bad period pains which are making me feel sick! And Iv had this for about a week! x
I did that this time around. I had cramps for like a week that led to a 35 day cycle. When I did start, it was very light and like only 2 days. I have had these light periods for several months. It's not the norm. for me. I'm going to the doc. about it this Tuesday.
I say if it gives you peace of mind go for it! It cant hurt.
Hi, my periods have recently started doing the same thing: regular 28-29 days for 18 years, then BAM 35 and last cycle 40. I have never given birth or even been pregant, so that can't be the reason for me. When I phoned the doctor she said to give it another cycle and try to relax as much as possible, then call again if it goes so long again.
Sorry I can't be of more help than that, but I recognised my own frustration in your post, and I hope we get answers soon! Please let me know if you do find out what's going on!
For anyone that has irregular periods I suggest they see a Dr. I had the same problem. My periods were so irregular it was frustrating. I never knew when it would come and how long it would stay So I finally went and seen an ObGyn since we were ttc #1 . I was put on Medroxyprog (10mg) 3 months ago. It works wonderful. I take a pill the first 10 days of each month and my period always come on day 11 or 12. The doc said it would not have any effect on a baby when I get a BFP. She also ordered me to start taking Prenatal vitamins and she did a test on June 1 to verify that I am ovulating. Currently waiting on those results.
