Periods were regular, except for one missed period last january. Periods are regular, although shorter over the past 2-3 years i.e. every 25-28 days where they used to be 28-32 days when younger. Did at home pregnancy test and it was negative. No constipation. No burning sensation or any other symptoms. No medical illness although I was found to have an incidental ovarian cyst last February via ultrasound...told it was benign and not to worry by my GYN, who seemed bothered that my FP ordered it. FP ordered it after missed period and he said he thought my uterus felt somehow out of the ordinary and ordered the ultrasound and referral to GYN. I take no medications. I do not currently use contraception, but we abstain i.e. rhythm method...I know, but it's worked for 10 years. I've also been told fertility is virtually nil after 45. I have gained about 10-15 pounds over the past couple months, which could be contributing to my bloatedness. Thanks for any insight.
I feel as though I am about to get my period, but I am just so much more uncomfortable (bloated with pelvic pressure, but no pain) then usual. I have not had my period in 46 days.
