Hello, and thank you for choosing Justanswer about your concern. I’m Ted Manos M.D., board certified obgyn and I can respond but I need to know your age and how many months have you been having this menstrual pattern

I'm 44 , and i noticed it like 4 months now
How are you counting the days. Are you counting from day one of your period to day one of the next? You may not be releasing eggs each cycle. If this continues, then you’d need an ultrasound
Ask Your Own Health Question
Ultrasound would be done around day 18 to show the appearance of the uterine lining. You might be prescribed oral progesterone from day 15 on for ten days. It’s what happens as your cycles tend to do this. It’s normal for the pre-menopausal years to have this happen.

I'm counting from the last day of my period
We count cycles from the beginning of one to the beginning of the next. Usually, five days of the bleeding then the next starts 23 days later for a 28 day cycle. You may be having your period closer to 28 days as opposed to more than 30+ days. You’d need to have the ultrasound to reassure you that it’s normal for you or the doctor might have you take progesterone each cycle for no more than ten days.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
