I am 23. My fiance and I have been trying for a baby for just over 21 months. My cycle has always been all over the place. So for the past two year I have been tracking it. It can range anywhere from 16 to 31 days so it's a by of guesswork as to when my period is due. And as for fertile periods, we just have sex as often as we can to have greater chances. Last month, when no period had arrived after 31 days I got a bit excited. Unfortunately 3 days later my period came. I always have bad cramps, tender breasts and am very heavy. My period always lasts 4 days.
This month was different. 31 days came and went. 5 days came and still nothing so I took a test. Was negative. Day 8 still nothing. Negative test. Day 10 and I has excrutiating cramps which left me in bed for the day with a really heavy flow. Now I still don't have my usual signs and the flow has all but stopped!
I have a several quite severe mental health conditions which means I can rule out stress as a cause because stress has been a way of life for over four years now.
I really don't know what to think and am too scared to go to a doctor for fear they will tell me it's 'normal'. It clearly isn't. But is it cause for concern?
