I am almost 22 years old and I have always had really long spans between periods or a really irregular cycle.
Usually my periods were occuring ABOUT every 2 months apart but since my second year of college I have noticed that my cycles have been anything BUT regular. During my second year I only had 2 periods (one was the almost regular 2 month wait, the other I waited nearly 6 months for). I thought it was just school related stress triggering the delay and I was not sexually active, so not having to deal with periods I took as a blessing.
I have now been out of school and living with a MUCH lower stress level for a year and a half now and there is still no consistancy. In fact it has gotten worse. I have been carefully monitoring my periods since July 2008 and there has been no pattern what so ever and the range has been anywhere between 29 days to 107 days. I have a serious boyfriend and even though we are using protection (although I am not on a birth control) we are both tired of the constant freaking out about pregnancy. He is also concerned since we both would like to have kids one day, we are wondering how much this is going to affect our chances.
I seen a doctor who sent me for blood work and seemed a little uncaring about the fact that I JUST WANTED REGULAR PERIODS OR TO KNOW WHAT THE HECK WAS GOING ON. She sent me for blood work. The tests came back as normal. And I left with no answers from her.
I know I am not pregnant because I am having my period now. It started on the 29th of October. The one I had before that one started on July 15.
I am fit, but probably only fitting in 2 hours of serious excersise a week and I have minimal stress in my life.
If anyone has any answers on what I should do or what my problem is I would REALLY appreciate it.
