What the fudge???

I've been having long and short (21-40) day cycles for about a year. I'm 41. This is nuts though....

Any thoughts?

Please get your GP to do a blood test, to check your hormone levels. I had exactly the same symptoms; it took over 3 years for a diagnosis

What was the diagnosis?

It was an ovarian cyst, but please don't panic, as most of the time it's a hormone imbalance. I also had some other symptoms, such as having to empty my bladder every 30 mins blush and pelvic pain/pressure.

Is your GP sympathetic? If not, you can go to a sexual health clinic. I did, as my GP was dismissive, and the clinic referred me straight away. (The cyst was pretty big by then, though).

Have you had any other symptoms, other than the weird cycles? I really hope I haven't worried you.

Take care.

Glad you came back! That doesn't sound like fun. No, no other symptoms.

I'm glad you haven't got any other symptoms and hopefully your GP can shed some light on it. All the best
