Post Irregular Periods - Pregnant or health problem? SCARED!!

I am new here. I got off of bc in Dec this year. My husband & I want to start trying. I have always been irregular when not on bc, but not this bad. I have missed one period in March after getting off bc. Now I haven't had a period since May 26th(53 days ago). I spotted a couple of days very lightly when I should've started on June 30th. My cycles are about 36 days when they are normal. I have had cramping and sore breasts this whole time just about. Do you think I am pregnant or something is wrong with me like maybe endiometriosis? Any input would be appreciated. I am very nervous & don't go to the dr. til next Thursday. Maybe some of you can calm my fears.

Thanks so much!

have you taken a pregnancy test? I have pcos...which makes me very irregular...and before I was diagnosed, I must have bought a zillion of those! Check that first...

Maybe someone else has more?

I have had irregular periods since they started. I miss at least one month a year. My periods range anywhere from 28-30 days, however they last five days. That is the only consistency. I drive myself and my husband nuts every month with the "p" word. Eventually my period comes and I prepare for the next month. Let us know how your doc visit goes.

If you have had sore breasts for more than two weeks, odds are you are pregnant.

I suffered with infertility for several years and irregular periods also. When I was heading into my 3rd week of tender breasts and no period, I took a pregnancy test and my miracle baby was on his way!

I also had very severe cramping around the time my period was due; before I even suspected pregnancy. Good thing I didn't know I was pregnant then, for sure I'd think I was losing the baby but he went full term...actually more than full term, I was about two weeks overdue and he was born via c-section at 9lbs. 7oz.; big baby for a little girl like me!

Best of luck in your hopes for a baby; there's nothing comparable in the love you feel when baby is put in your arms after all that hard work!
