Sorry to hear about AF coming again so soon. I'd call your doc and see if they can give you some answers.

Thanks, ladies....

So, what types of things do they test for? I don't understand. What might cause this insanity??? I quit taking b/c about two months ago...do you think that's the problem? Because my first period off b/c came at the regular time... What does this mean for TTC? Do I currently even HAVE cycle, or am I just totally out of whack?

Gosh, I'm just RACKING up the issues! So frustrated...

I had this problem from the first AF after Yoni until I got pregnant. It would happen even on BC pills. They can run tests to see why it's happening. For me, most of the time, i don't ovulate with the cycle. So, it's hard to know when I am pregnant and when I am not. The dr can run tests to rule out serious issues and also to help figure out what's going on.

This just happened to my girlfriend. exact same thing. She is not high risk like us but has irregular pds. Anyhow she went to the dr and they were not overly concerned. Said to take it easy. If it happens again then they will be more concerned and do some heavy testing on her. But they recommended that she wait until she had another more "regualr" cycle before she ttc again.

Also this happened to me once before too. It was after my loss. I got my cycle two months after the whole horrible ordeal was over. Then two weeks later Aunt Tootie was back. (Now I don't recommed doing what I did)...BUT...I was like COOL!!! Now I can start TTC and do it with a quicker trun around time. [:o)] So I got pg with Carly right away.

I'll be thinking of you and hoping for the best.

I'd call your OB/gyn and get some testing done.

Ok, I started my period on Aug. 28 - sorry about the detail - but it was really heavy and lasted seven full days (not normal for me....) So, two weeks later, here I am - having yet another HEAVY, relentless period....I thought I should be ovulating this weekend, not MENSTRATING....AGAIN! UGGG! What is up?!?!?!
