Hi all, haven't posted for a while but I need all of your expertise.
A bit of background info first.
DH & I are currently TTC baby # 2.
Our DS is nearly 14 months. I didn't get AF back until he was nearly 1.
I have a long but regular 38 day cycle, Oing on CD 27/28, with a 10/11 day LP.
I got UTD with DS quite easily, 3rd cycle, so I thought it would be the same this time around.
I am currently on CD2 but this is the strange bit that I need help with, my last cycle was only 24 days and I O'd on CD20, with only a 4 day LP!!
What is going on?
In the middle of said cycle I had a stomach virus, then started taking anti inflammatories (AI) for RA, which caused some stomach issues, so had a break, then started taking different AI, which I ceased just before getting AF.
The stomach virus and AI could very well be the cause of this strange cycle, just wanted to see what people think.
I have also been taking Vitex this cycle which I did the cycle I got UTD with DS.
Please look at FF for more info.

It took a while for my cycles to become regular after they returned- usually a few months or more before they were back to normal.
It could be the tummy bug?
Are you absolutely sure you O'd on day 20?
Is AF like normal- any chance you could be having an implantation bleed?

Cindye, definitely not an implantation bleed. AF is heavier than usual and seemed to come on all of a sudden, no warning, just BAM! and there was blood. I had a few clots last night too, which is a bit strange.
FF says when I O'd and I agree, I had EWCM as well as temp increase.

Very strange. I think it'll be related to the tummy bug and meds.
Hopefully your next cycle will be a bit more normal.
