Anyone have any information on this? My period has been coming as regular as it ever has since November. It comes every 21-24 days. It is now 27 days and I am in a total and complete tizzy. It is possible but I could be pregnant, but that scares to death as I have just lost my child in October and I can't go through that again.
Advice anyone....

Hi Twinkiet
I have been diagnosed with MCTD (sle, scleraderma & polymyocitis) for 8 years now and I haven't had a period now for 3 years. My docs are not sure if it's pre menopause or just the mctd and meds. I sympathize with you about the miscarriage, I had 4 before I was dx ed and I was told it was because of the lupus sad . I hope you get the answers you need. Take care of yourself and try not to let stress pull you down.

I actually didn't get my period for the month of June until last week when I normally get my period twice a month. Would love to have children, but not sure how and if I can emotionally handle it since the lost of my son at 7months last year. Prior to that, I had lost 5 children in the first trimester.
