Recommend MD appt: Tyoically it takes 3 months to regulate your cycle once you start the birth control pill. Though there are women who stop having their menses while on the birth control pill you should probably make sure you are not pregnant (home pregnancy test would be accurate at this time). It also sounds like you may need a change in birth control pills- there are many available that might work better for you.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. 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 have a very long menstrual cycle and short periods, is this a problem when I want to get pregnant?

I have a very long menstrual cycle and short periods, is this a problem when I want to get pregnant?

Yes: It may indicate an underlying problem with the ovaries or the hormones produced. It may actually indicate that the ovaries are not producing as many eggs which in turn leads to lower hormone values. Or it may represent something else entirely. But better to have evaluated now to know exactly what is going on and how it could affect fertility.

If my period starts on the 5th and ends on the 9th of every month when do I ovulate and how long is my period cycle.

If my period starts on the 5th and ends on the 9th of every month when do I ovulate and how long is my period cycle.

You need to: The cycle length is the number of days from the first day of one period to the first day of the next so from what you gave us your cycle is between 30-31 days. Based on that you likely ovulate on about the 16th or 17th day of the cycle. Good wishes.

My period cycle is getting longer and longer. The last is 3month before I start to have heavy flow. Should I concern?

My period cycle is getting longer and longer. The last is 3month before I start to have heavy flow. Should I concern?

Don't be concerned.: Hello Rindi, It seems as though you are having irregular cycles. You are probably not ovulating regularly. This is why the menstrual flow is heavy. If the amount of blood loss bothers you, you could use contraceptives for cycle control. If your bleeding or the time between does not bother you then as long as you have 2 periods a year you will be fine.

Since I'm ttc my period cycle is longer from the first day of my last cycle to the first day on my next cycle it's a month or 32days gap. May I why?

Since I'm ttc my period cycle is longer from the first day of my last cycle to the first day on my next cycle it's a month or 32days gap. May I why?

Cycle: But we know and believe about most natural cycles is that you ovulate 14 days before your next menstruation. The first part of your cycle, that is the time it makes to make a mature follicle is what can vary. There are so many things that can affect us, including stress. Medications such as Clomid (clomiphene) can affect it as well. They usually do. If you're not pregnant in a reasonable amount of time you should seek assistance in helping you figure out what's going on.

Depends: Most menstrual cycles become regular and normal in 3 months. If your cycles are delayed every month for more than 3 cycles, then please see a doctor. Please od a pregnancy test as well.

Variable responses: Spotting, staining, light or heavy bleeding and/or cramping "may" occur; however, in many cases, depending on the dose, nothing happens and is self limited.

What's the best way to determine the next time I will get my period cycle since my last one?

Variable: Probably the best way would be to do an ovulation predictor kit, remembering that you will ovulate the day after your ovulation kit shows an lh surge. The second half of the cycle (after ovulation) is called the luteal phase and in most women is fixed at 12-14 days. Count forward 12-14 days from day after your lh surge and that should be your period time.

Would I get pregnant if I am in the middle of my period cycle and got humped while wearing a thin string and I am a virgin?

Would I get pregnant if I am in the middle of my period cycle and got humped while wearing a thin string and I am a virgin?

Depends: If sperm were inserted into vagina- even virginal the possibility exists. More barriers, less chance. Get tested to be sure.

My menstrual cycle is so unpredictable I never know when to expect it. It is never monthly and once I didn't get my period for 6 months is this normal?

Doctor can evaluate: There are many causes for irregular menstruation. One common one is polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), a hormonal imbalance along with cysts in the ovaries. Though most irregular menstruation is not acutely dangerous, any woman who does not menstruate monthly should consider seeing her pcp or an ob/gyn for evaluation.

See your doctor: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

Depends on test: Read the directions that came with your test very carefully - it should tell you exactly how long to wait - but no longer. If unsure, check with your obgyn for a blood test - its more sensitive.
