Skipping Every Other Period
I have always had normal periods. Since my husband and I have been trying to have a baby(over a year) I have been skipping my period every other month. What is causing this?
Several: The most obvious explanation for alternating periods is that ovulation is not occurring every month. This may be why it is taking a while for conception to occur. At age 27, pregnancy usually occurs within 8-15 months unless there are other issues involved. A basic infertility evaluation takes only 1-2 cycles and will give you useful information going forward. ...Read more

That means her cycles would have to match the same varying length as the month she is in... it doesn't happen like that in nature. ...Read more
