Does any one else get worried about the length of their cycles?


It is still 8 months away until we start TTC but for the past 6 months or so I have been keeping proper records of my cycles (for the first time ever tbh).

I was on the bcp for 5 years approx and I came off about 2.5 years ago just to take a break and I found that not being on it any more really suited me.

Since tracking my cycles more in the past few months I see to hover around 32 days but they have jumped up to 35/37 days on occasion

I know that about a year ago my cycles got to around 40 days (but I was REALLY stressed out) and things havn't been that extreme again since.

I just don't know if I am worrying myself about nothing with 35 day cycles at this stage...but I have got a docs appt next week (about something unrelated) but I wandered if I should bring it up???

Thanks xxxx

I have long cycles too and I always have long periods. It's not 'normal' (as in average) but it's 'normal' for me.

My cycles (before I went on BCP) Were all over the place, 3 months, 1 month, 8 months it was horrid, so I went on BCP for 5 years ...
Now I recently came off them in July and haven't had AF yet! *Sigh* So I understand what you mean about worrying! I'm just waiting for mine so I can start tracking.....

Awww...we shouldn't get too pent up about it...only likely to make it worse (I tell myself )

I think all of this BCP stuff and cycle crazyness makes you realise just how much of a long term impact such a little tablet can have when you are taking it for years at a time.

I was only 15 when I started taking it and tbh once I came off I realised that I had never really been in tune with my own body! It is only since I have started tracking (even though it is a little frustrating and worrying) that I have really begun to understand what the different feelings/changes that go on through the month really mean to me!

Best of luck ladies with your cycles - one month at time

Yeah... I mean I'm glad I took them since for me it has meant no accidental pregnancies but at the same time I can't help but feel irritated that I didn't just stick it out and find out what is 'normal' for me, so its like starting all over again! Bah humbug!

Thanks for the good luck x and good luck with yours x
