I too unfortunately have been experiencing this with no real answers. I used to go 2-3 months with no period then maybe an 8 day heavy one, to 5-6 months no period then one lasting a full month bleed. Heavy. During the bleed I would be so exhausted, a trip up the stairs would leave me literally out of breath and I'd nearly collapse on the floor when I got home. I get dizzy spells, dehydrated easily and its just awful. Recently I've been put on synthyriod for underactive thyroid. It's been about 3 months now and I'm hoping it will help balance my whacky hormones. For the past 2 months I've been getting my period an average of 33 days.. but they last 3 weeks (heavy) and I have 1 week off.. I am on CD 14 and still bleeding so I'm guessing in 1 more week it will be gone. I've been trying to get pregnant for years. I have no idea when I ovulate. I am 33yrs old soon 34. I hate that we have to go through this, but I feel not so alone having such a backwards cycle. Most women bleed 1 week with 3 off and I am totally the opposite. I am grateful to get my period, not too long ago I was praying for red,.. but I just wish it was a normal cycle.,
