Long period cycles: What you describe most likely means that you are not ovulating.

In the short term this is not dangerous, but you should consult with a gynecologist to determine if this is only a temporary situation or needs further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

I'm 2 days late for my period I took 4 tests and they were positive I have since then taken 4 more and they were negative. What could be going on?

Pregnancy test: When and what time of day did you take these positive vs negative tests? Your HCG levels are highest in the morning/strongest concentration of urine in the morning. So, that's why it's best to test earlier in the day. Sometimes if you're quite early in your pregnancy, then your pregnancy tests later in the day may still not detect your HCG level. Consider waiting a few days, or have blood test. ...Read more
