Periods all haywire - currently on day 19

And showing no signs of stopping.

Prior to having dd they were very infrequent (as in once or twice a year) but since they came back after having her they have been as regular as clockwork every 28 days.

Over the past six months though they have been really strange - lasting for a couple of weeks at a time, and with a cycle ranging between 18 and 45 days. This one is the longest yet, and I'm getting a bit peed off with it now!

Any experience or suggestions? Will be seeing the GP but can't get in for a week or two.

Haven't a clue WWB sorry, but bumping for you

Thanks for the bump smile (Are you going to come back and finish that game of Scrabble, by the way?)

Anyone? Please?

It's 20 days now and I am heartily fed up with it!

Could you be anemic?

Or could you have polysistic ovaries (not to scare you, just heard that this is sometimes a symptom of those)

or could you possibly be having a "missed miscarriage"?

Why not see your GP for reassurance...

Thanks for your reply. I'm going to see the GP but I can't get in for a couple of weeks. I just wondered if anyone else could shed any light on possible causes!

Given that I'm overweight and hairy, PCOS is a possibility. I don't think I'm anaemic ... or at least I wasn't, until I started bleeding for England wink

Definitely not a miscarriage.
