Irregular period

Mon Nov 09, 2015 9:13 am

Hi! I have struggled with irregular periods since I was about 20 (I am 29 now). BC pill has helped in the past but I Have been off of it for about 2 years and had irregular periods.

My cycles have varied between 34-48 days for the past couple of years. My last one was 34 days, and the one before 47 days. My last period started Oct 3rd. We have been told to try to conceive every other day and use an OPK and we used First Response. Unfortunately it never said I ovulated but finished with the kit on day 23 of my cycle.

I am now on day 38 of this cycle and had some cramping yesterday and today. I thought because the OPK never indicated ovulation it wouldn't be happening this month.

I guess my question is, if my cycle is greater than 40 days, does anyone know if it is an anovulatory cycle for sure? Not sure what these cramps are related to, they are low, to the right side and dull.

Hi Lucky. Have you been checked for PCOS? It causes irregular cycles. And some women ovulate really late do it doesn't necessarily mean anovulation

I would get checked for PCOS. I have it and my periods are like yours: some months short, others long.

Metformin had been a huge help. Ive ovulated four months in a row.
