No real period since October
Mon, 03-03-2014 - 1:38am

I haven't had a real period since October 13th approx. It is common for me to have irregular cycles so I am not too surprised. A few years ago I went 4 months without one. When I went to the ob-gyn she said they don't worry about it until it's been 6 months (preg. test there was neg. too) Well now it has been over 4 months again. It will be 5 months on March 13th. I took a preg. test at the end of Nov. and the end of Dec., both of which were with fmu, and both negative. I am not going to worry about it until I hit the 6 month mark, like the Dr. said. I am planning, however, to get another pregnancy test this week. I have bled every month, almost on the 13th of each month exactly. It is just really light pink, and sometimes brown and pink. I never need a tampon for it. It stays about a day and a half on average. I think it's strange this happens though because I normally do not even get my periods exactly 30 days apart...almost never ever. Also, I unfortunately have been teeter-totting with my weight. Perhaps that is the cause of this. I have gained weight these last 4-5 months. I was alarmed when I noticed stretch marks directly under my belly button and under that area, as I've never had them there. My stomache feels bloated, clothes are tighter. My belly definitely looks out there! It is crazy. Has anyone experienced false neg. preg. tests, or a positive test way later on?? Anyone have input?
