So does anyone have a clue??

I should not be pregnant - dh had a v. and was cleared twice. I am under tons of stress.

Here are my symptoms: 2 days late with period and when it did come it was lighter than normal and only lasted 2 1/2 days. The period then disappeared for 3 days and then I spotted brown for 2 more days. I am totally irratible and ######y. I am breaking out. Okay so all this could be stress. The thing that has me worried is that my boobs (or what is left of them after 3 kids) are tingling and heavy feeling.

Sooo any clues out there in cyberspace? Could it be periomenopause??

How old are you (since you asked about perimenopause?) Any idea how old your mother was when things started to become irregular for her?

Stress can really mess up your cycle, so it's possible that stress delayed ovulation - and therefore, menstration. The bleed you had may have been a withdrawal bleed (because your body didn't ovulate, the bleeding was a result of a crash in hormones) or it may have been a breakthrough bleed (due to a sharp rise in hormones as your body tried to ovulate). Without knowing more about your cervical mucus pattern though, it's hard to say just what kind of bleed it was.

It could also have been an implantation bleed. Even vasectomies are not 100%.

Given what you describe, the light bleed and brown spotting - it's definitely wasn't menstration.

I am 32 and my mom went through it in her late 30's I think. I know I ovulated last month because it hurt like a ##### (but I can't honestly say I had sex around that time). Its the boob thing that is throwing me....

My cm was really thick around ovualtion, tapered off a little and then was heavy agian right around my period and has been heavy since.

thanks....

Hm, if your CM only tapered off a little - I would be hesitant to say that you ovulated. When ovulation occurs you will notice mucus that gets progressively wetter and more lubricative, followed by a drastic drying up. Many women are never completely "dry" (they may remain a bit sticky or something), but whatever it is, it's a DRASTIC change compared to the mucus they experienced before. Drastically drier.

Since the cm only tapered off a little, then increased again before and after the bleed - it sounds like ovulatory bleeding. Ovulatory pain isn't the most accurate way to determine if ovulation occured or not, because an attempt to ovulate can produce the same kind of pain - even worse pain in many cases. Tender breasts can be a sign of ovulation sometimes too.

Of course, any intercourse when mucus is present (as much as 5 days prior to ovulation), and for 3 days after the last mucus day has the potential for conception. I would still reccomend a test just to be sure.
