Okay, I've faithfully charted my cycles for overr a year now.

But this month is sooo off I'm starting to be concerned [Frown]
I've been seeing tons and tons of "egg white" cervical mucus for officially 9 days now. But today it was mixed with some kind of discharge that seriously looked and had the consistency of mashed potatoes [Frown]


I haven't had sex in 2 months (It was protected from start to finish)and i've had 2 periods( usually early - lasting the full 3-4) days , I've been to the doctor about it but she could not find anything and I have no STDs. I also took two pregnancy tests that came up negative ( and i spent money on the early detection ones as I felt they were the most sensitive [Frown] )

all this said it's day 19 of a 26 day cycle for me.

I wouldn't be concerned about it I'f i weren't in pain, but I am at the bottom of my tummy and mid-hips, and my breast really hurt. I've been under tons of stress- could this be a cause? or should i see another doctor?

Hi PinkyPieStarshine,

Did you mention the pain to your doctor?

Even when we've been charting our cycles for several months and have a pretty good handle on their variations, our bodies can still change. Throughout the years, and, for most, decades, that people have a menstrual cycle, that cycle isn't likely to stay the same over time. Sometimes it'll be very different just once in a while, or sometimes, for some people, it will change multiple times. All this to say that this cycle being different isn't necessarily a cause for alarm.


And yes, stress can have a pretty significant effect on the menstrual cycle.

Did the doctor who saw you run any tests? What did she say about the change in your vaginal secretions?

She just said it may be a hormonal imbalance due to my stress level and prescribed me anti-anxitey pills..

yes, hormones aren't always going to stay at the same levels or follow the same patterns. They're incredibly susceptible to changes in our bodies.

So,it's up to you whether you want to wait this out or whether you want to seek another medical opinion.
