First . . . be really careful about
birth control right now because it sounds like your ovulation time is unpredictable. I have four children and I know at least one of them was an "eight day baby" . . . meaning I was only 8 days into my cycle when I conceived. My hubby and I already had 3 and we were being extremely careful and using double birth control at the time . . . but . . . Taaaa Daaaa !!!! My now 26 year old surprise!!
If you are on SS, wouldn't you be eligible for medicaid/medicare? I don't know much about
either, but just a thought. Do you have local planned parenting clinics? Sometimes they give free checkups. Right to Life might be able to steer you to some free or affordable help too.
My periods got wonky about
your age too. And they became unpredictable. Some were super heavy and some lighter . . . but no rhyme or reason to timing. After the flow became debilitating, I finally had a uterine ablation. That should only be done if you are not planning any more children . . . and it usually causes periods to cease . . . but I had a much lighter flow after mine.
I hope some of the others have more info. I just wanted you to know about
the wonky ovulation that can go with this.
