I'm 46 and periM. I am on day 50 of my cycle...after 1.5 years of a shorter and lite cycle of a routine 23-24 days.
I'm one of those that can *usually* tell when I will start, I'm always on time and when I ovulate it is very notciable.
I could tell that I did ovulate last week, things changed...no dryness, you know the clear discharge during mid-cycle....my is heavy and a slight ping of pain just before.....so I thought, hummmm if this is the case, I should start 14days from this point.
That was during the week of the JULY 17th....figuring I should start around August 1st.
Day 50 (today) I spotted, some spot dark streaks this morning on the paper. Now, several hours later, some pink, lite.....starting to spot.
My question....if I ovulated last week, shouldnt it be at least 2 weeks until my period starts???? wonder why I'm starting 10 days after ovulating????
--just curious....because it all seems so strange to me, I am so use to routine and schedule and I would like to know what to expect during this crazy time. Plus, not only do I have 99.9% of ALL the symptoms of periM, I also always try to anlylize everything! drives my Hubby (who is wonderful!) nuts...LOL
Thanks for any thoughts you can share!!!!
