Post 40 DAYS

My last three cycles have been separated by forty some days. It started in May. My period in may began on May 12, didn't have one until June 23, and I am still waiting on the next one. I know I am not pregnant. I still get the PMS symptoms which warn me my period is on its way. These started last week, but still no flow.
My cycles are five days long with usually 28-34 days in between. occasionally, I have 35-38 days inbetween, but I have never had this much time inbetween or consecutavely.
I don't have insurance or money to visit a doctor. I hope someone here can helpe out.

You didn't mention how old you are but could you possibly be starting perimenopause? Also since you have already stated that your periods are irregularly regular it would not be uncommon for you to be going through a change in how your cycles are.

I'm 23 and my cycles sound similar to yours. On average mine are about 38 days long, but they can be anywhere between 34 and 47 days long. They were never as long as 47 days until a few years ago and then every so often a cycle will be over 40 some days long.

I think one of my problems is that I have hypothyroidism. I was diagnosed last year. Thyroid disease can cause your cycles to be irregular. If you have any symptoms of hypo or hyper thyroidism you might want to have that checked.

After being on thyroid meds my cycles are still irregular although they've gotten a little better. So my gyn wants me to take BC to help make them regular.

Maybe you could go to a free clinic and see an gyn. It could be nothing, but you should at least see a doctor. And maybe you can get on BC to help regulate your cycles

Good luck

I am having the same problem.. Right now im at 39days. My periods lately in the last year have been very irregular for me. My cycles run anywhere from 29-40days. I am 31 with three kids. I am overweight, so that could be part of it. I have never been diagnosed with PCOS (since i can get pregnant if my husband walks in front of me naked! ) I do have excess hair on my stomach (right below the belly button) on my chin( ive started to grow a beard! just a few whiskers though) and on my inner thighs. I have an annual scheduled for 25AUG03 so i will aske him what's going on.

On Day 46 I finally had my period.
I was also wondering what the symptoms were for that thyroid thing.
Thanks for the responses. It is nice to know that I am not the only one.
