@mom121 I had my implant removed October last year and my period didn't return until end of November they went from being 28 day cycle to between a 31-34 day cycle I had taken pregnacare vitamins which made it worse I wasnt ovulating until CD 20-24 and af was coming cd34 all you can really do is keep track of them my gp had told me if they didn't start to get more regular within 6months they'd consider giving me a scan but they have settle down a bit now best way to keep check is by marking everything down even to the day you get any cm or twinges cramping what day everything happens at least then you can take it to your gp and they can help a bit better hopefully this helps!

@NicoleR14 i have been keeping note of when they start and finish and also the days we have been having intercourse. Its a nightmare as i dont know when im ovulating. Fingers crossed they regulate soon

It took me about 6/7 months for my periods to get regular so hopefully it will start getting regular for you soon. It started at about 43 days and it was going down each month until now where it's 28 days

@NicoleR14 yes but every time was getting negative and they are too expensive to test every day for 3 weeks 😩

Acupuncture might help. After I had my DC my periods were horrendous and anything from a 23 to a 31 day cycle and sometimes bleeding for 10 days! Had 2 seasons of acupuncture and now pregnant (and I’m 41)
