Hello again. . .

I haven't been at this message board in awhile. Quite a few changes. . .

I was just wondering if I'm being too anxious about this? Last month I had a regular cycle. It was a day early but nothing different than any other month. I'm usually early or right on day 28. I went on holidays and when I got back I got sick and was put on antibiotics. I still kept track of my O days and found I was a few days later than usual. Would that change the day that I start menstrating? It's not usual for me to be late. I should have started Sunday or Monday. I haven't really had any cramps. Moments where it kind of felt like it but not consistant with how I usually am. I am finding that my skin is off balance. It is oilier than usual and when I broke out it looks like a rash. I feel like I've stood over a deep frier all day. My breasts are sore but for me thats normal PMS. Could this be just a normal change in my cycle because of being sick or could this be. . ?

Hi Carla! Nice to see you again! Typically the variable length of your cycle will occur before you ovulate, with AF usually arriving the same number of days past ovulation each month. If you ovulated late, you can expect AF to be as many days late as your ovulation was. PMS symptoms are so similar to early pregnancy that they've driven more than one woman crazy wondering if she were pregnant! Still, if you've BD'd at the right time and think it's possible, it certainly is! Keep us updated!

Hi Carla, that "wondering" feeling is horrible. I've been there before, and my best advice to ease your mind, is to take a test.....that's what we do when I become paranoid and anxious and wonder if something might have happend.
