Unusual Cycle?
An_244045 posted:
I am 27 yrs old and my cycles use to be between 31-33days. When I got married the stress from planning a wedding I assume is what caused my period to be late that month. Then other stressful things happened and now my periods are between 40-45 days apart, I have read that that is normal. But I am wanting to try to start a family and I cant seem to figure out when I could be ovulating.Help please?? When is the best time for me to get pregnant??
Yvette Smith, MD, MPH responded:
It can be difficult when your cycles are that far apart. How long has this been happening? The ovulation machine can abe helpful in these situations but the machine is pricey. You can even try using a regular ovulation predictor kit but it will only be helpful if you test at the right time, about 2 weeks before you period actually comes (again, sometimes difficult to guess when your cycles are far apart)

You might ask your health provider about drawing a progesterone level a week before you expect your period. There are other blood tests they might want to perform in this situation (like thyroid testing) but you need to review this with your caregiveer.

We want to confirm that you are actually ovulating with your your cycles this far apart. There are mild fertility drugs that are sometimes useful if you are not ovulating.

If all of this has happened over a short time and the stressors in your life are going away, things may normalize on their own.
