TTC after 35

The Red Lady shows up...

First I am amazed at FF and how I knew AF was going to show up since my temperature hit the ground this am (it was my first month charting so scientifically I am amazed at its powers to predict based on temperature) but I cannot for the life of me figure out how I ended up with 21 day cycle!  I have had AF since I was 11 yrs old (yes 11!) and never have I had a 21 day cycle . What is going on with my body? Agh...  I guess I'd be complaining if it was a 60 day cycle too.  Done ranting.

  • Sorry to hear its such a short cycle! That does sound frustrating! Hopefully its an anomoly and you will be back to longer length cycles soon. FF uses statistical data from ALL of the charts in their database which is how it probably gave you the insight it did. Best of luck

  • Sorry to hear it! My temp went just a little this morning (.3 degrees) which cheered me up a little (especially after the cramps I had all day yesterday), but I just took another hpt and BFN.  I'm trying not to hold out much hope and will probably be joining you in a few days.  I don't have an explanation for the 21-day cycle, though; however, since it's your first month charting I don't think you can make much of anything out of it or get worried unless it happens again.  Here's hoping next month is yours!
