Shorter cycles

At some point in the last year my cycles shortened from 28-29 days to 25-26 and I hate it. I'd love to say exactly how long it's been, but there was a good part of the year that I was lazy about not marking my start days on the calendar. I'm ovulating about day 11 or 12. Has anyone had a cycle just get shorter like that? And if your cycle just shortened did the doc say you were ok or was something wrong.

Re: Shorter cycles

You don't mention your age. Your cycles naturally shorten a bit as you get older. In my teens and 20s mine were always 31 days apart. In my 30s they got closer together and now in my 40s they're usually 27 days apart. I'd definitely mention it at your next GYN appt. If they're heavy and/or close together you could be at risk for anemia.

Re: Shorter cycles

Sorry, I'm 31. I didn't know that they shortened with age. Do they get heavier as we get older? They are heavier and I really HATE that. I was just thinking about the possibility of anemia today. I've always leaned that way so it's a possibility.
