Hi, this might be TMI for some people!
So I stopped taking the pill over a year ago now, and within a month or so my periods became pretty regular. I started a "period diary" about 9 months ago and realized that I have a fairly regular cycle, ranging from 28-32 days, with a period that lasts between 5-7 days. This didn't really ring alarm bells for me because Ive never been one to run like clockwork, except for when I was on the pill for 2 years.
So we want to TTC this year, starting middle of the year. I've had my immunization boosters, started vitamins, had a pap smear etc and we are all good to go. However, my period for the last three cycles have been really weird. I have been getting the slight cramps as per usual, but then I just get really light spotting for about 4 days before my "real" period comes. When the actual bleeding starts it lasts for about 6 days. So this means my cycles are being pushed out longer.
To make me even more concerned, I have never had a positive OPK. I've been using the cheap fertility2family (I think that's what they're called??) ones.
I'm 24, healthy weight and have never had this before. I'm going to see a doctor, but I'd really appreciate some advice or reassurance from someone who has also experienced this. Thank you!
