Have you been losing weight, or super stressed? Lots of things can effect our periods.

 Sorry if I get a little TMI here...it sounds like you may not be ovulating. What you may have experienced when you thought you were having your period may not have been a period at all. I had a similar experience  when I was ttc my kids. I would go months without a period and then I would have what I thought was a period, but the blood was more brownish in color and thick. When I talked to the dr. about it..she said after awhile the tissue and blood will build up and will slough off. I wasn't ovulating at all and it wasn't a standard period. You may want to discuss this with your dr.

uh... post-pregnancy? Pre-menopause? Thyroid fluctuations? Starvation? Over-exercising? Someone's slipping you the Pill? :D

Lots of choices... it's hard to say.

I would say to talk to your doctor. TTC can be very stressful, and maybe that's suppressing your periods? Do you do anything for stress relief? Yoga? Anything? Might be helpful. But I say talk to your doc for her input.
Good luck!

There are so many variables...I was irregular from the time I was 13 until I was 18. I went on the pill to regulate and it worked for 2 years..then, in 97' I stopped having them completely- even while on the pill. I did not have one for 4 years and then they were irregular for a few years. It took us 7 years and Clomid to get pregnant with our first child. After she was stillborn, my body went back to being sporadic at best for about 2 years. Once we adopted our middle daughter, I became regular for a few months and then went 4 months without a period and got pregnant ( last period in August, pg in December). I have been regular since then.. 

I did go through what I thought was perimenopause this past November-December. I had a period for almost 2 months straight as well as other symptoms. They checked my thyroid, as well as other things and everything was normal. I will also add, I am not overweight and have not been for 2 years. 

My best advice is to speak with your doctor, especially ttc. If you are not ovulating, it will cause irregular periods and make ttc more difficult. 

Good luck to you.
