Post subject: confused
I have had NO signs of ovulating this month. I am a 27/28 day cycle and have always ovulated smack bang on day 14, regular as clockwork since i came off the pill in November.
The thing is my last period was only one day. It was really really heavy so definitely not an implantation bleed but i am normally on for 3/4 days.
is there any chance on gods earth i could be pregnant and still have a like-period? or am i wishful thinking? just a bit confused that i have nt ovulated this month and i am now on day 18 of my cycle.
also when i sqeeze my nipples (don't know why i decided to sqeeze my nipples) a CLEAR (like water) fluid comes out. Its not sticky or milky (like pregnant) so i don't know if this is normal.
Would you test? would you see your GP?
I hate going to see my GP because she's a crabby old witch and she moans at me about my weight. I am still overweight but i have lost 4 stone alltogether since TCC to be healthy once i got preggers, but instead of helping me and giveing me advice she just goes on about not TTC until i am at ideal weight so i always want to punch her! (i am not massively obese by the way - just an average size 14)

hi charlachica, it does sound unusual to only bleed for 1 day if ur usually regular, i think it depends on how patient u are, u cud either wait untill ur next period is due to see what happens if anything, or go and buy a test 2 put ur mind at rest.
me personally i cant stand being a day late my mind starts thinking things, so i wud do a test 2 be sure, if its positive then u will have to face the evil witch doctor, there's nothing wrong with being a size 14 dont let her upset u, and if its negative then do the 'baby dance' neway and wait for ur next af to pass.
good luck, let us know what u decide. x

Hi charlachica. Sorry to hear about your problems so far. There is a possibility you could be pregnant - some women have periods throughout pregnancy, so there is a chance, although it could just be stress or something else. The only way to tell is either to take a home pregnancy test or for a definitive answer, a blood test to check the level of hcg (pregnancy hormone) in your blood. I would definately try a home test first. As for the liquid it could be hormone related, but I have only ever leaked liquid from about 20 weeks pregnant, but anything is possible. The only other thing I can think is that you have a problem which could be causing these things to happen - whatever way, you really ought to visit your gp as the leaking fluid could be a bad sign. Do you not have a surgery with different gp's that you could see instead? By the way, congratulations on loosing weight. I lost 4 stone last year and am now a size 14, but my gp was so supportive and great. I hope it all turns out well for you.

The exact same thing has happened to me, im normal 27/28 days and 4 day on my period which are normal quite light but when my af arrive i was reallly heavy the 1st day and hardly anything the second and then stopped.
I can't quite understand whats happened.
I don't know if i should wait another week and see if i had my af or do a preg test now.

thanks girls. I think i'll wait and see if my next a/f arrives becuase i can't bare doing a test.
Maillwallrose, i supose i could ask to see another GP i've just allways seen her. I will book an apt to discuss my "leaky nipples" and maybe mention when i'm there about my 1 day period, suppose the dr might do a test.
It's just making me feel really negative knowing that i have not ovulatd and will definiately not be preggers this month. i do hope nothing else is the matter but best to get it all checked out i suppose.

it is so confusing isn't it. I didn't think much of it at the time but now i haven't ovulated either i am really worried. Actually hope i am not preggers because just after my freaky one day period i went out and got absolutely smashed (which i haven't done for ages as i have been trying not to dring while TCC) god how guilty would i feel?
well as i say i suppose its good advice to see my gp for the nipples thingy, my mum is having a nervous breakdown thinking i have got breast cancer but i am only 24 and it is both breasts, not just one, so i really dont think it is as sinister as that! mind you my mum thinks she has got lung cancer everytime she has a little cough!! she's a bit morbid!

Please do see another gp - they might end up being wonderful! I know it's awful getting a negative when you think there is a chance it might be positive. And do not worry about your drink episode - 1 night it unlikely to have harmed a baby if you were pregnant so try not to feel guilty. I did think breast cancer when you said about the leaky nipples, but as it's both it does seem quite unlikely, but I am really glad you want to get it checked. The best of luck.

Yeah it is confussing, i didn't really think much about it at the time but as the days have gone by ive started to have headaches everyday day, feel tired all the time and by boobs don't hurt just feel a little tender at times. I keep thinking it my mind & body playing tricks on me.
I was going to by a preg test today but i haven't got the bottle just yet, sound silly i now.
I should be due on next Thursday/Friday so i might just wait and see it happens.
