I've never dealt with this before. Right from puberty, my cycles stabilized at about 25.5-26 days. I was on the pill for several years, so they were exactly 28 days apart. After I went off it, I had one more 28 day cycle, then reverted to 25.5. After I weaned ds1, I had one or two irregular (by a few days) cycles, then again back to 25.5 days. I got my period back four months pp with dd1, and had a 25.5-26 day cycle. Same with ds2, although it took 17 months to come back....came back quickly after we lost Aaron, but on my usual cycle.
So, I had dd2 in June, 2009. In November, I got my first period. They were somwhat irregular for a couple months...coming in at around 30 days. Then, I had a 36-37 day cycle (actually went and got a pregnancy test, because I was seriously wondering...and I had a tubal. - I don't ever remember having a cycle that long). The one after that was almost exactly 26 days, so I thought maybe I was settling back down. My next one was 24 days. I just got it, and it's been either 21 or 22 days.
Has anyone experienced this shortening of cycles before? I'm not really looking forward to 1-2 days of bad headache, backache, stomach upset, etc. every three weeks, if they don't stabilize. That extra 4-5 days between may not sound like much, but it feels like a lot! I'm thinking I may get back on Floradix, because I have a slight tendency to mild anemia, and this seems as though it would aggravate it, but...any thoughts on what's happening?
