Okay, I just feel I need to rant about something, and maybe by doing this my body will start acting normal again (Yeah, I'm hoping talking about it will make a change happen).
Warning: This is a post that is not only very personal, but all about female reproductive biology. If you don't want to know about that then don't read it. That simple. lol
When it comes to my menstrual cycle, I haven't been very regular. There were times a few years ago I'd even skip a month. One month back when I was 20 I skipped and then the following month I had it for one hour. Yep, an hour. Course, I never minded this because, well, it's nice to not have a period for at least a month. Good little break and not being sexually active meant there was no question as to why it might be late/skipped.
As I get older, I get closer to being ready to start a family. I started keeping track of my period because it will come in handy later, and on the occasion I have to go to the gynecologist it is nice to know when exactly my last period was. It's also nice to have a time frame as to when it might start, less chance of being caught off guard (which was never a good thing). So, I used MyMonthlyCycles.com and have been for awhile now.
Sometimes, my cycle will be regular now. I can go for months and have it be close to on time within like a 5 day radius of the estimated date. The site says the average for my cycle length is about 32 days, which is longer than some. Above 40 is considered a bit questionable and might be signs of problems.
This year, however, not so regular. Janurary I was a little early. That's fine, nothing wrong there. February, I was about 2 weeks late. Made it inconvenient for my trip but got over it. March was pretty much on time, maybe even a day early. April....
I haven't had my period yet. Was scheduled for April 27th, day 33 of my cycle. It's now May 12 and it hasn't started yet. And I don't know what to think. I keep thinking it might start any minute and yet nothing (this has gone on for over a week). I haven't seen my bf since the end of february. I'm just unsure at this point. How long do I wait till I consider it a skipped month?
That is my rambling. Okay. Next blogpost will not be so personal, maybe.
