Unusual cycle
HereToDream - TCOYF

Any guesses as to what's going on? It's been a particularly stressful month, so I was very much expecting to not ovulate and menstruate.
The bleeding looks old, it's mostly brown and pretty different from normal. There's a minimal amount of bright red, and I'm pretty positive I didn't ovulate this month.
Is it just a typical annovulatory cycle? Why would it be so short?

Thanks for taking the time :)

Re: Unusual cycle
Stress can really mess with cycles!!! Ovulation is not confirmed on your last cycle, but judging by the mucus - it looks like your body gave it a try and then failed. Likely from the stress. That means this bleeding is NOT a true menstruation. It could be a breakthrough bleed, from rising estrogen, because your body is going to give ovulation another try. So consider it potentially fertile (and 3 dry days afterward). It's not actually the start of a new cycle, but you can chart it that way if you like.
