Menstrual Cycle Day 29


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining until the placenta takes over. The zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing larger every day. The amounts of hCG are increasing, and are definitely high enough to result in a positive pregnancy test. If conception did not occur, the amount of progesterone being released drops off due to the corpus luteum dying. The lining may begin to slough off.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline and may even steadily rise higher. Cervix may be low, firm and closed, or slightly raised and softer. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. You may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions and fatigue. These symptoms are highly probable if pregnant. If conception did not occur your basal body temperature may be dropping down due to the corpus luteum dying. Cervical fluid may be creamy to watery and tan in color. You may have water retention, headache, moodiness, spotting and cramps. You may have bleeding start making this day 1 of a new cycle.

I haven't had a period for 29 days, and i'm concerned about pregnancy. i tested negative for an ectopic pregnancy test. the bleeding still continues. i was scared, and decided to get tested for cancer and even aids. what could be the possible answer for such a strange menstrual cycle?

Doesn't look like a problem to me. my cycles vary in length also, and as long as it's not shorter than 20 or 21 days or longer than 45 days it's normal to experience a slightly longer cycle. if you are stressed in any kind of way (you may be and not realize it) it can throw your cycle off but is nothing to worry about.
