From when should i be counting?
Im not sure if anyone else besides Jackie has read any of my other postings. I have been feeling out of sorts lately, naseous and aching back and lower abdomen, headache from hell. On Sept 16th i had a period, then in oct it was late and only started 21st. I have not started my period yet. Should it have started? Or should I wait for the 21st? I want to do a hpt but not sure of when. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to see what your cycle is like over a period of at least 3 months. Then you can decide whetehr a period is late or whether your cycle is completely irregular.
