I’ve asked many friends their opinions and have gotten mixed messages, so thought I would try out you ladies since you all seem super knowledgeable!
August 2016 was the first month my bf and I ever “pulled the goalie” in all shapes and fashion. I started the month using an app on my phone to pinpoint estimated ovulation/fertile periods to avoid getting pregnant, but we had an oops right in the middle of that week. I have no way of knowing 100% if I O’d or not as I wasn’t temping or charting, and until this last year, my cycle was all over the place.
I remember having fairly tender breasts and vivid dreams that month, but that happens frequently for me during PMS. I also remember thinking I could be pregnant – granted, that could just be nerves from the first month without contraception.
I got AF on CD 32/33’ish. Not late in terms of my body. I never POAS because the arrival of AF was all the justification I needed. AF was what I would call an easy period.
Fast forward 2 1/2 weeks as I was driving 6+ hours to see a friend for her bridal shower. My back was pretty sore, but I have hip/low back problems which only get exacerbated by long car rides. I felt a little damp, but chalked it up to seat warmers and fluctuating CM. When I stopped for some food, I used the restroom where I learned that I had nearly soaked through my jeans!!!
I continued to bleed throughout the weekend for a total of about 3 1/2 days – much worse than my period 2 1/2 weeks prior – very heavy and very painful). And as quick as it came, it was gone.
I didn’t get my next period for almost 2 full months afterwards.
So – my question is this – CP, MC, or other? I’m leaning towards an early MC given the timing, amount of pain, the amount of tissue/clotting passed during that weekend, and the reset to my cycle. As wonky as my cycle is, I’ve never had two periods in the same month. My bf and I have continued to try/not-try-not-to since August, and this is the only anomaly we’ve had. No BFPs, no late periods, nothing. After 6 cycles now, should I be worried about our fertility?
Thank you all for reading.
