Period lengths and ovulation

So finally after two VERY short period cycles I'm having somewhat of a normal one.

Augusts period was 2 days very light spotting with 2 days light to medium period.

Septembers period was the same as Augusts.

This period was 4 days late but I spotted for the last two days before it started. And then on the 4th day it started. I was medium to heavy for two days then back to medium and now day four I'm light flow.

Its got me wondering if I was even truely ovulating the last two months now. Ive never had short periods like that.

Hmmmm.

Sounds possible you weren't.  Maybe OPKs or charting can help determine that?

I have been doing both. It was just a thought. The dr did change my thyriod meds in September too so that could have been why it was short too.

I've not been on BC for well ever LOL. It messes with my body too much. My periods have never done this. Crazy body.

Its possible that you werent! I would try temping and charting a couple months and that way you can be sure if ovulation is occuring!

My thoughts as well. If you temping, charting, using opks then there should be no doubt!

Well I do still have doubts. I've never had periods like August and Septembers cycles. Just found it odd, that's all.
