Sorry about the multiple posts. I have no clue why that happened.

Thanks. The hard part about the 14 day cycle was I anxious for O and WHAM AF instead. UGH. It would have been a pain normally but TTC it was worse.

I have had irregular cycles since I was 15. Without BCPs or Clomid, my cycles can run anywhere from 90 days to 1 year, with no bleeding in between, whatsoever. Lately, however, they were averaging 90-180 days, or 2-4 times per year.

I was on BCP for three years, and that was the only time I had 28-day cycles. Except now!! I was given progesterone by my RE to induce my period, and it's my second cycle on Clomid. Last cycle was 32 days, with a 14 day luteal phase. That's pretty ideal for me and my weird pituitary gland... :shock:

I had my regular cycles until I lost our baby in 2007. Then they went from 28 day cycles to 35-37 day cycles then had an HSG done on Dec 18th and havent had AF since!!!!!! I am on day 83 or 84 i think and have not had AF. I am taking progesterone 10mg for the next 12 days to start af and then taking clomid. I never thought I would want af to show lol Irregular cycles suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before I started Prometrium, I bled/spotted for 9 weeks straight. Thanksgiving - Mid January. Merry Christmas indeed! Then it stopped, then I had 2- 7 day cycles on Feb 5th and again on the 17th. WTH? Kind of hard to tell when or even if you are o-ing with that kind of crap going on!

I think my longest cycle was around 90 days. Maybe longer. It hasn't gone that long recently though thank god. Think the longest it's gone recently was about 70 days.
My last cycle was pretty frustrating even though it was only 30 days (YAY).
It started off as a pain in the butt though. I didn't get a regular period. It was only heavy spotting and it lasted for freakin 10 days! Never thought it would end.
My last period was a normal-ish period.... but it lasted pretty long as well.

Ever since having my daughter in 2007 I've had very irregular cycles. My longest one so far is seven and half months, so around 230 days, give or take.

I don't know what my longest cycle has been, but my oldest son was conceived on a 92 day cycle! I hope this gives some hope to those ttc with irregular cycles.... it is possible!

Alrighty, I'm experiencing a very weird cycle. It started off with only heavy spotting for a period that lasted 10 days.
Stopped, then I was spotting a couple of days. Didn't think much of it.... started spotting all day yesterday..... and wake up today.. go to the bathroom and passed HUGE clots and still am since... I'm on CD18!! WTF??

Had to resurrect this thread b/c I'm still experiencing a very strange cycle.

Since April it seems... I have been bleeding almost nonstop.
I think last cycle, there were a few days midcycle where I stopped bleeding, but that was it.
There's an obvious period b/c it gets heavy, but then that will turn in to this spotting/heavy spotting thing it's been doing.
Been to the Dr... getting a US in a couple weeks.... so yeah.... hoping whatever is wrong isn't too serious and is fixable.

This is just frackin annoying though. Having to wear a pad 24/7... having to time BDing perfectly since both myself and DH are a bit grossed out to do it while I'm bleeding lol. SIGH!

My average is 45 days and range from 33 to 58 days. I never know this before I started TTC and wrote down all mentrual cycles. I started charting in May and according to that I do ovulate. I have made up my mind if we dont conceive by September Im going to try Clomid. That will be over a year of TTC. However my husband doesnt like the idea and wants a natrual.

I never had regular cycles five years ago I use to get them 2-3 times a month. Went on birth control to see if that would help and begged my mom to let me stop taking them cause I hated the way they made me feel. Was on them for about 3-4 months and never since then.
