    Default Menstrual cycle question

    Hi ladies,
    I have a question and would appreciate replies.
    Last month we did IVF (BFN) then my periods came exactly 7 days early. This month it's 3 days late. Is this something normal? If you get your periods very early one month you automatically get it late the following month? I'm usually very regular with my cycle (maybe off by just a day or two for the most).
    I tested when I was late by 1 day and got a BFN (I admit the test was expired by 5 months so not sure if that would affect the result) and I have all the symptoms of impending periods (gas, stomach pains/twinges around the tummy area) but just no periods!
    I should add that CM appeared exactly when it should around 12-14 days post.
    Should I just wait this out because it would automatically come late?
    Thanks in advance!!

    I found this but would still like you guys to give advice, do you think this is basically true?


    Answer:
    Your ovulation is from one side each month, and each ovary runs on its own cycle. Usually they match and you get your period at the same time each month. This means that if your period is every 30 days, your right ovary drops an ovule (egg) this month. 30 days from now, your left ovary will drop one. 90 days from now your right ovary will activate again and drop an ovule. And so forth.

    However, if one month you ovulate early, meaning you get your period early a few days, the next month you will ovulate on your original schedule on the opposite side, which means that period will feel late to you, when in reality it is running on its own proper schedule.

    Hi Honeytips,

    After a BFN stim cycle, I always find the following cycle is out of whack and is a up to a week longer than usual. Happened all 4 times that I stimmed.

    I'd be more concerned about getting AF 7 days early during the IVF cycle. That indicates an issue with your progesterone levels and you might need to use a different type of prog support. Be sure to question your FS about that and good luck for next time.

    Thanks for your reply SimpsonDesert! I did find it extremely strange that it came so early but when I went in to see my FS on the day it came she didn't say anything other than it's a shame and if and when we might try again. I've already decided to change FS and see another one (heard great things about Wazza!!)

    If I lived anywhere near Brissy, Wazza would be my 1st choice. You'll be in great hands with him
