Question: question about period


 babygirl18 - Thu Sep 22, 2005 11:00 pm

My periods are always later than the month before. last month i started on the 16th and now it is the 22.. its not unusual for me to be this late b/c it has happened many times before, but i keep feeling like im going to start and i think to myself "ok im definitely going to start today" but nothing comes. why do i keep feeling like im going to start but i don't? should i worry or is it just signs that it is on its way?

I'm 39 and they're still not accurately predictable. For me, it's just Mother Nature's way of keeping me on my toes. ;)

If it gets too bothersome for you, check with your physician. There are options for you to help regulate you periods.
