Hi, I have a history of irregular menstral cycles. My usual pattern is to have two or three periods in a row and then skip a month. It's rare that the periods I do have start at the same time of the month, it usually varies from the middle of the month to the end and so on. I recently skipped a period in June, had one in July which started on the 7th and so far it looks like I'm skipping august. This has me concerned because I don't ever recall missing a period again so soon after I've just missed one a month before my last. My husband and I practice natural family planning and I have a pretty good sense of my body and when I ovulate so I can avoid intercourse or use protection during that time. We've been doing this for almost 6 years now and haven't had a pregnancy scare other than the times I skip a period and just as a pre-caution, I would take a HPT in case. I've been thinking over all of the possibilities and I know that stress can cause a missed period but I honestly haven't been stressed at all. My breasts are slightly tender but that's really all I can say that's different at this point. I don't remember ovulating this month so this has me worried. Is this just another missed period? In the past I've jumped the gun and taken HPT but they always came up negative and the period that I missed at the time was completely normal for my cycles. Should I take a HTP this time or let it ride and wait another month to see if I miss another period? Thank you.
Note: I've never been pregnant before so I'm unsure what to expect if I were.
