    day 43 without a period, 5 days after period was spotting. help?
    simplyliving306 posted:
    Okay so December 2nd 2013 I had my period, 5 days later I was bleeding again or spotting or something for 2 days, then it stopped. I am currently sexually active with the same partner, not on birth control, and we didn't use condoms (ever). I am a little worried being as its been 43 days (technically) since I had my real period. In November I didn't have a period at all because I had gotten it from October 26th-30th. After that I didn't get it till December and the spotting. and 43 with no sign of it or even the regular cramps or back aches. Ive had SLIGHT discomfort in my breasts and my abdomen area, discharge is more clear/white than anything, and I noticed I have been needing more sleep. Because of my body always being weird when it comes to periods I have not worried much before about this, but this time around my period is later than what it was at last month, so just curious as to what could be happening to my body. I Have been pregnant a few times before but can never really tell until I get a test done and actually get passed the 8 week mark.
    Any tips, suggestions?
    And I already know if I don't get it soon to go see my doctor, that's the obvious, just figured id see what the lovely people on this site have to say about it and if anything similar has happened to anyone else.
