Question: missed period and pain

 Lisa6of6 - Sun Feb 27, 2005 3:32 pm

I had a regular period 1/13, lasting approxiamately 5 days. I had a second period 1/27 again lasting approxiamately 5 days where my breasts were extremely tender and for me that is not normal during my period. I have always been very regular with my cycle (28 days). My husband and I are actively trying to get pregnant. Last night I took a First Response test and it was negative.

I am also currently on a project with some stress, but not the most stress that I've experienced on a project. WIth the other projects where stress was much higher, I still remained on a normal cycle.

Today there was some soreness during intercourse and my husband noticed some redness near the vaginal opening. I've also noticed a very light, brown discharge today.

I have my annual exam scheduled for April. I am also 36 and have never been pregnant.

What are the possibilities?

your symptoms appear to reflect irregular ovulation.... the cause of that needs to be investigated,
I would recommend that you advance your appointment with your physician in light of your irregular cycles....keep track of your cycles and any irregular bleeding occuring as that will help in defining the condition
The redness and soreness could reflect an infection, but that can only be confirmed by a specialist examination.... another reason to re-scheduale your annual..
good luck
