Re: What to expect the next month when you miss a period
well, irisrose (what a very lovely name, conjours up all sorts of colours and scents), you could get the period from h**l next time you get one (which might be tomorrow, next week, next month, the month after, etc. etc) or you could just get a very ordinary, normal one, or you could get a very small, light one, it's anyones guess, and you really won't know until it happens. you may actually have seen the last of them forever (not very likely), it does happen that way for some ladies.
if this is only the beginning of it all for you, it's something you'll get very used to over the coming months/years, the not knowing when it's going to happen again. and you can bet your life that if you have an appointment for a smear test or something else that a period would interfere with, then you'll get one out of the blue!!!! i wouldn't waste your money on pregnancy tests either, with your husband having had a vasectomy (unless you have real reason to suspect you could be pregnant by some other means?!?), this is just the way things go when you get to a certain age.
