So, I've noticed last period and this period have been quite different than my usual 28 day cycles where I menstruate 5 days and have no unusual problems.. Last month, I bled for 2 days and spotted light brown on day 3 and it was over. Then my period was late this month, it came on day 32 (I'm sorry I don't remember all the abbreviations from 5yrs ago lol!!) I started menstruating on Feb 2nd, and I bled HEAVILY day 1 and 2, spotted day 3, and skipped day 4, and today I had light brown spotting and it seems to be over as I type. Is this a problem? Are your cycles like this too? Or is there a problem and I should be talking to my Dr? I'm going to call for an apt regardless, because I want to get checked out before I switch doctors (I'm trying to find a RE out here, just moved here) but wanted some advice.

Also, since my period has been so off, when do I start my OPKs? Ugh my head is swimming, not sure if I even asked the questions correctly because I honestly don't even know what I'm asking. Maybe just someone to sympathize, give advice, or relate.. AHHHH!

I have a 59 day cycle, which is WAY long, but anything under 40 is still "normal". I'd start testing 2.5 weeks before you're anticipated start date.. Twice a day when it starts to darken. Good luck!!
