Okay so I posted earlier this month because I had multiple random +opk , now on what should be cycle day 15 I've started my period. Has anyone even heard of a 14 day cycle? I mean I have also had really long cycles (45-47 days, suspected pcos) then last month was 28 days, and now 14 days? Should I be alarmed at all? I would hate to make an appointment for no reason, other than to confirm my Dr's suspicion that I am bat (S)ugar (H)oney

I have irregular periods too. I have had a 158 day cycle and perfect 28 day cycles. I also had a time when every 14 days I was getting my period. It happened for about 3 months. I was scheduled to go to a specialist anyway for infertility testing so it worked out well that I didn't have to schedule an appt with my regular ob/gyn. My RE was slightly alarmed at my 14 day cycles that were happening especially because they were one after another. He said one once in a while is ok but if they are happening back to back that I need to come in. It was being caused by anovulatory cycles. I was anemic by the time I went in so I had to take a good vitamin with iron and eat a lot of iron rich foods to get my anemia under control. He put me on progesterone to stretch out my cycles. After a few cycles with progesterone my cycles were back to "normal" between 28 and 45 days.

Hey it does sound like possible PCOS to me. A lot of positive OPKs can indicate an elevated LH which is indicative of PCOS. It can also cause long or irregular cycles. I don't see any harm in making an appointment. Good luck!!!! (((hugs)))
