RCH1286:  sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother 🙁  While your long cycle could definitely be due to stress from that event, it could also be a medical issue (ie PCOS).  I was diagnosed with PCOS in February after a few long cycles…I kept thinking I would regulate and I just never did.  I definitely hope you don’t have PCOS, but if I were you, I wouldn’t even wait until CD90 to call your doctor….I wish I personally hadn’t waited so long with some of my long cycles!  Good luck, keep us updated!

OP- so sorry about your grandmother.

Something like that happened to me. My last cycle started 1/24, and when AF didn’t show in February or early March I took a couple of tests- all negative (the most recent one in that batch was on March 10, when it definitely should have been positive even with my longer 38 day cycles). So I kind of threw my hands up in the air and decided to wait for things to go back to normal. Fast forward to late March, and I started having pregnancy symptoms. I waited until April 9 to test because I didn’t want the test to turn out negative for testing too early, but when I did test that test was VERY positive. The test line was much darker than the control line, and the digital test said 3+ weeks. I’ve since been to the doctor for bloodwork, and it seems that I’m about 8 weeks now. 

My point isn’t that you must be pregnant right now, but there is a chance to get pregnant even during a really long cycle when you ovulate really late… Do call your doctor though. Mine did a thyroid panel on me during that odd window when my cycle was getting really long and pregnancy tests were still negative, and the plan (before it turned out I was pregnant) was to do further tests to find the source of those irregular cycles.

Good luck and keep us posted!
