Need some advice......

Good afternoon Moms & Moms-2-B, Just wondering if any of you ladies out there can help me. I stopped taking birth control pills last Feb. (2013). Since then I've had a 26-day cycle that last about 4.5 days; days 2-3 are usually my heavier flow days. My last normal period was 12/26/13. My period was due on 1/20/14 and on 1/21/14 I had very, light pinkish-brown bleeding. I figured that was just the cycle beginning slowly,but the next day it was the same or pretty much nothing. I wear tampons and I usually change them every 2-3 hrs when they are pretty well absorbed, but I've been bleeding so lightly that I could've worn a panty liner and been perfectly fine. That's not normal for me and I'm a little nervous/worried. On Tuesday I woke up with a sore throat n my entire body ached! By Wednesday it only got worse and the coughing an runny nose started. Today would be my Day 4, but nothing. I had unprotected sex 2 days before I ovulated and on my ovulation day according to my calender tracker. Not sure what happend this month becuase my period is always the same Can anybody provide some insight??? HELP!!!! -

    Thx. I wouldn't even be concerned if I had an irregular menstrual cycle, but I've been 100% normal since March 2013. My period came about 5 wks after I stopped the pill and was regular until this month.

      Thx you. Definitely have a nasty bug, but having a cold around the same time my menstrual was starting has never affected my cycle. So weird lol

          Thx 4 all you help & good thoughts Moms, but I took a HPT on Sat afternoon and it was negative. Guess I just had a a crazy cycle this month. Maybe next month we'll get lucky :-)

            Wishful thinking lol but my cycle was due on the 20th and I started spotting on the 21st like it was actually going to start. So I figured by Sat I would be ok to test. If I don't have a regular cycle next month, I'll contact my dr because its been fine for the past 11 mths.
