Hi Lindsay,

I think the brown spotting you're experiencing can lead to a full period any day now....for the most part my period is pretty much like clockwork but occasionally I will spot brown for days before the actual flow starts...

I have 4 children. Breast fed all and #3 for 20 months. All 4 vaginal deliveries 2 all natural unmediated. I just made my hubby have "relations" with me because I always have red bleeding after intercourse sometimes up to a week before my expected period. I did have some red bleeding but now nothing. No flow. Why isn't it starting.

What you're experiencing is totally and completely normal.  Periods are all over the place.  It happens.  It's absolutely nothing to be worried about.

I want you to think logically about something: you just "forced" your husband to have sex with you because of your fears.  Do you think this is normal?  When does this stop?  You're grilling your children over a common headache and now you're turning sex into something to try and reassure you.  I know you think I'm harsh and that I pick on you...but Lindsay you HAVE TO STOP THE MADNESS!!!!!  You're going to ruin your relationships with your kids and your husband all over your anxiety.

I guess that is the nature of HA, thinking the worst of any little health issue---you have to somehow learn to stop doing that.  Maybe you could write down on a piece of paper all of the minor reasons you think you period hasn't started yet, like stress or anxiety or just a normal hormonal fluctuation.  Don't write down the catastrophic reasons you think it's happening, and just focus on those minor reasons.....tell yourself these things are highly more probable than what you're thinking is causing the issue.  If you start to think this way you will be able to calm yourself, calm your stress, and the bonus may be your period will start!

Take Care :)

My period started. Thank goodness. You guys I know I am crazy. I honest to God have suffered with HA since early childhood. I would literally get out of bed at night n jump up and down to make my heart beat to where I would feel it. I thought I had breast cancer at 13. Do you know why I am like this? Because I love life and can't stand the thought of something ruining my happiness. I am an extremely happy person. I know you can't tell but I am so amazingly in love with my life, my family and I'm so angry something like "C" could take it all away. I think it's extremely unfair this lovely thing called life has to come to an web at some point. I don't know how to deal.

I too have had it since I was a little kid.  Some of my earliest memories are fear related.  You say that you love life and you don't want to think about it coming to an end...what about this part in the middle?  The part you're living?  Don't live it with fear.  Get help.  Reach our to your Dr., get a therapist, journal...take control.  Tomorrow I'm going to take part in Relay for Life for the 4th year in a row.  Cancer took my little "brother" from me as a young adult and I'm fighting back against it.  It won't have the power anymore.  Every step, every lap on that track is fighting that evil beast.  Maybe you could start to do something like that?

Holy ***** are you me?  Seriously, both of these describe me.  I used to do that as a little kid cuz I thought my heart would stop, and once I started growing boobs I panicked about breast cancer (no one told me nipples are supposed to be bumpy, okay?)

People here aren't hard on you because they hate you or are picking on you.  They just don't want to see you destroy good things in your life by worrying about what bad things could be there.
