Sorry if this is really long! I appreciate it if you actually took the time to read and answer my questions! [Smile] But anyways...
Hi, I had a question about the symptoms of PMS. I usually chart and write down all my symptoms such as food cravings, cramps, moood swings, headaches, etc.that I get the week or two before my period. Well this month I noticed was kind of different. Even with the ovulation discharge and symptoms. I always (well at least for the last couple of months) get egg white discharge 3 days before I actually ovulated. I also get a slight sharp pain or dull ache during one of the days I have egg white discharge. So I know my period will come 14 or 15 days after that. I usually get alot of discharge, and it's very slippery, stretchy, and clear. But this month I only got it for two days and it was not an abundant amount. It was also more globby and watery. Then for the next 3 days I had creamy, white, but sometimes stretchy discharge. Then all of a sudden the next day I got egg white discharge and a lot of it too! It's strange for my own cycle. I usually always get in days in a row. Not egg white, creamy for a couple of days, then egg white again. Also, I usually get tender breasts at least 4 days after ovulation. But I should be getting my period sometime the end of this week, or next week. (I'm guessing since I'm not sure when I actually ovulated this month) I know I shouldn't worry too much. But it bugs me because I am so used to getting tender breasts everyday before my period and also getting the regular type of discharge in my own cycle. Do you think this is normal that my symptoms are changing? Do you think anything is wrong with me? Why didn't I get tender breasts this month?

Oh also, I am getting symptoms of PMS like some mood swings, food cravings, light cramps, etc. But it's not the same as last month. I would also like to add that I just turned 15. And have been having my period for a little bit over two years now. It's not very regular. It varies a few days a month...Is that okay? I heard your period should regulate after two years.

It can take a lot longer than two years for your cycle to regulate, and some changes every once in awhile are perfectly normal. It would actually be incredibly unusual for a woman's cycle to stay the same the whole of her life, and sometimes, even if we've been regular for awhile, a wonky cycle can happen.

It really doesn't sound like you have anything to worry about here, but if you want to, you can always ask your healthcare provider.

Thanks! [Smile] So all the changes are fine with the symptoms and all? When should I worry or ask a doctor?

Some changes are perfectly normal, yep. But if you are worried (or notice big changes) then go ahead and call your doctor - no harm in that.
