20 Day Menstrual Cycle
I have been having a 13-20 day menstrual cycle that has been lasting longer than normal (7-10 days instead of 5).
Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, I would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more

A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

I wear 3 corsets at a time (waist training) for about 20 hours a day and have been for a few months now. Could this affect my menstrual cycle?
Corsets create that: Hour glass look by squishing your internal organs and displacing them inward and upwards. They hurt your abdominal and chest organs primarily. The hip & pelvic bones tend to protect the pelvic organs. If the corsets are preventing you from eating or if you're seriously stressed out trying to achieve a look that isn't natural for you, they could affect your cycles indirectly. Not recommended! ...Read more

Ovulation: Ovulation occurs 14 days prior to the first day of bleeding. Therefore, in your 28 day cycle ovulation occurs on cycle day 14 counting first day of bleeding as the first day of your cycle. A perfect, consistent 28 day cycle is not necessarily the norm. Most have a range of cycle lengths, say 26-29 days. Ovulation then occurs in the interval of cycle days 12-15. ...Read more

If most periods are normal then one abnormal one (late, early, short, long) is not usually a cause for concern. The cycles tend to regulate and get back to normal quickly. If there is concern for pregnancy check a test. ...Read more
