Any one else in this stage? and trying to get a handle on it all?
I’ve always had disgustingly dependable cycles of 28 - 29 days. However, my last one was just whonky - about 45 days (although it felt much longer!). And while I thought I had a pretty good sense of when I ovulated, it was still pretty freaky waiting for my period to start. No surprise to me, it arrived 14 days past ovulation day. We use mucous only, although I do know how to temp - I’m mostly too lazy and predictable to keep up with it.
What really threw me for the loop was in the middle of that cycle, I was recalled to have a second look mammogram (all was fine). But the technician was really freaked out when I couldn’t swear I wasn’t pregnant and they ended up just doing an ultrasound. The tech acted as if I was too young to be having premenopause symptoms - I thought I was in the range of normal. She had me almost convinced to do a pregnancy test.
I know the Couple to Couple league just published a new book about this stage that I will be ordering soon.
Anyway, just wanted to hear from others who are in this phase of growing up!
