Period No Show. Need some advice. I'm so anxious.
I'm looking for a little advice, maybe something to help me keep a level head. Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes...
Before I start I should give you a little back history to me.
Me and hubby have been trying for about a year. I'd had a few health issues and went in for surgery in Feb this year where I found out they had removed some cysts and that I had endometriosis. Luckily no lasting damage was done and although it will return I was given the all clear by my surgeon to begin trying for a baby again.
So fast forward to now. I couldn't get the hang of keeping track of periods and ovulation, it really confused me.
So I got a period tracker app. Which has been brilliant. It predicts your next period and your most fertile window. Been using it for about 4 months. And I found that my cycle is like clockwork. Roughly a 27 day cycle. I start light brown spotting the day before my period is due then my period lasts about 4 days, 1 day of which is very heavy and then it's light from that point.
Each month I suffer with sore boobs, fatigue & nausea. I guess that's just how my periods are.
But this month, about a week after ovulation I started getting dizzy. Like really dizzy. So bad infact I went to the pharmacy to get my blood pressure checked. It was completely normal but I was told to keep an eye on it. For about a week I was so dizzy and ridiculously tired.
So about 5 days ago my boobs started hurting only this time they felt like they were burning. I've never experienced that before.
Now today is when my period should be here but it's not. I had no spotting yesterday like I usually do. I've got a slight dull ache in my pelvis as though I'm going to come on at any minute but there's nothing. Sorry to be TMI but there's no wet feeling, infact I'm dry as a bone.
I looked through my app this morning to check stuff because I'm convinced my period is coming. I've been like clockwork for the last 4 months I've been using this app.
This month is weird. I also looked at times that we were initiate during this month, we did the deed 4 times during my fertile window and 1 of those days was my ovulation day ( I didn't realise this until I came to document it later that day haha)
Now I know what y'all thinking... Do a test right? I know I'm dying to but equally I just can't face the BFN when it could equally still be too early to tell, know what I mean? I keep convincing myself the data could all be wrong. Maybe my endo is messing my cycle up? Or maybe my period is a cruel thing lol.
Has anyone else been through this and what was the outcome? I've never been this close before, usually I'm convinced I'm there but then the day before my period is due I start spotting. So this month has got me freaking out a little.
We've relaxed more this time, I only document this stuff for my own health really.
So when do you think I should test? I'm hopeful but equally scared to death.
