Options: An occasional off month is common and does not indicate a problem. For continued irregular periods see your obgyn for an exam and testing. Depending on your age and fertility plans there are lots of treatment options. Birth control pills can regulate your cycle. Your doctor will do blood work for thyroid disease as well as polycystic ovarian syndrome. No need to keep repeating the preg tests. ...Read more

Hormonal Changes?: Assuming you've had no major chemical changes lately which could throw off your hormones -- such as changing your birth control method or dose -- something could have naturally affected your glandular system. Stress, sex, love, food...All mess with us.

Unclear question: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

The last four days of my 14 day luteal phase my temp dropped. Period did not come, this morning (day 15) I had a ,5 Celsius rise, what can this mean?
