Menstrual cycle normal? Infertility? Any information or help:)
I guess I'm just posting to see if this is normal. I'm 20 years old. I've been keeping a chart of my menstrual cycle. Basically, how many days till I get to the next "time of the month." I'm always under high amounts of stress -- so I gather my period is always late, but since I'm stressed out normally every month -- it ends up on around the same days.
Up to now it's been: 29, 28, 33, 33, 32
But, last month I didn't have it until 40 days!! Which very much worried me. I'm on 34 days right now. So, I'm wondering if now on my period will be arriving every 40 days... Which doesn't seem very normal to me.
I have been sexually active -- but I highly doubt pregnancy is an option for me -- due to stress, low amount of iron and I'm prone to depression. Plus, I don't seem to have any symptoms (though I know some times it can arrive with none). I didn't use protection -- but this is because my boyfriend and I are neither trying or not trying to get me pregnant. It's sort of if it happens it happens -- we were planning to get married soon anyways.
I doubt it's pregnancy as well since I went to the doctor and got some blood work done and a urine test. This was on Sunday. I got a CBC blood test, another one I'm not very sure of. And the urine sample. The doctor said to just make an appointment next week. Which I did on wednesday -- I'm sure if he would of saw anything wrong or if I was pregnant he'd contact me. So, another reason I'm doubt I'm pregnant.
So, I'm just really wondering about my menstrual cycle. I never was EVER late by that much as last month. I'm just scared that it could be infertility or something else -- such as menopause (I've heard it's rare but can happen). So, I guess I'm posting to see if anyone can relate or might know what's up. I know I'll have to continue to see my doctor -- but, I guess I'd like to know now. Since I'm already a little late by 1 day technically (if I don't include the 40 day one) -- which I've never been over 34 days until last month.
