missing period every other month
tc23 posted:
Since June, I have been getting my period about every 63 days. We are trying to conceive so I have no idea if this is going to continue to happen from now on--does this mean I am only ovulating on one side and not the other? Been to gyno and internist and all of my hormone levels are normal--no thyroid issues, no stress, recent weight gain/loss, etc. I get discharge still as if I'm ovulating and get lots of discharge other times too. So I keep thinking my period is returning to normal bc I got the ovulation discharge this month around day 17--today is day 31 so I'm hoping I'm either pregnant or my period comes soon so I can see it is getting back to normal. I have been off of bc for over a year so that doesn't have anything to do with it. I had been getting my period roughly every 3 days on average (not regular but on average about 33 days), so just odd it started skipping a month. I don't thin it is due to ttc stress either bc this started in June and we didn't decide to try until August....any advice/help/insight is really appreciated.

Hi, I dont have any advice for you, lol, cause Im in your same situation! I've been missing my period every other month since August, and when I do get it, it's not even for a day. I wanted to write to you to see how you are now, and if you have seen anyone since the thyroid testing. I too just had that test done, which is normal also. I'm going to see a specialist soon, actually I was supposed to go today but was cancelled due to snow. Hope to hear back from you, if you could just write directly to my email, Thanks, Crystal p.s., weird its almost been the same time for us!!

I've been having this exact same issue since last summer as well. I'm on the pill though, which you'd think would make me REGULAR? I'm on Levora- Generic for Nordette.

My Gyno is COMPLETELY unworried. To be fair, it's the Nurse Practitioner cause I haven't actually been able to get an appointment for my actual Gynecologist. She just says "It happens sometimes" and dismisses it. I even called be a couple months later to tell her it was still going on. Still uninterested.

I also notice I'm feeling sleepier? Maybe that's a different issue though..

Either way I'm going March 6th to see my Gen. Prac. and have tests run. Don't think he'll find much now that I read this!!!

Hi, i also dont have any advice but i have been having the same issue with my period being very irregular, it seems to only come every other month and last anywhere from 2-4 days. I went to my gyno last month for a regular exam and discussed my situation with her because I am trying to conceive and have been unsuccessful. She told me that anything over 45 days without a period u should see ur dr to see if something else can be going on. I havent had my period in 46 days, I am hoping I am either pregnant or will be getting my period very soon....any advice or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

I've been going threw the same thing except I'm to afraid to go to the doctor. I've been missing my period every other month for the last few months, and when that started happening I started feeling really tired all the time.. So tired I stopped working out, and I can hardly stay awake most of the time...
