I keep track of my cycle on "monthlyinfo.com". I opened it last Thursday (July 23) to see when my next period was due (because it seemed like a long time had passed) they stated that it should have arrived on July 24th. Last week I has slight cramping and bloating and the week before my face broke out (like usual). Earlier in the month my chest was sore, like usual (always get so tender that my bra bothers my chest). As of yesterday all of my symptoms started to stop. Even the bloating is starting to go away. Just like it would if my period had ended yesterday (when it should have if I had gotten it on the right day). Also just noticed that my chest doesn't hurt at all and hasn't hurt for at least 10 days now). My average cycle according to the "monthlyinfo.com" calendar is 27 days. The longest it has ever been was 30 days (1 time) and I have been keeping track for close to two years now. Usually my period is right on time and always lasts 4 days, which usually consists of 2 days of bleeding, one day no bleeding, then one day of bleeding, then it goes away. I have been like this since I was 13 and I am 33 now.
I was also a little concerned because last month (only month this EVER happened) I made a special note on the tracking calendar because I got my period late in the day on June 28th and it was completely gone by mid afternoon on June 30th. So now today is June 29th, I was going to take a pregnancy test, but I don't want to waste my money. There were times in the past I thought I was pregnant, but bought the test, just to get my period two hours later. I have not been stressing the situation, just figured I was a little late. It would be okay if I was pregnant, so I'm not stressed or worried. Just looking for some advice. Should I wait a couple more days to take the pregnancy test or is this something I should do right away?
Thank you in advance for any advice you could offer. Have a wonderful day!
Note: Also I have a condition called Hashimoto's Thyroid Disease (which I found out about 4 years ago), I am not on any medication for this because the doctor's say it is not that bad yet and just needs to be monitored. Could this be affecting my period?
