A 22-year-old female asked:

My partner and i have been trying to get pregnant. all of a sudden my last two cycles have been extremely longer than normal. last one 50 and current one day 48, but still no period. my normal is about 32-34. it did not happen gradually. is this ok?

Cycle longer: It's likely that you have not ovulated during these last 2 menstrual cycles prolonging estrogen effects and preventing release of progesterone which accounts for lack of usual uterine bleeding. Your gynecologist can advise you best, however.
