One thing I can tell you is this, the scenario below is extremely common, as reported by countless longtime CH'ers (such as myself):

"Just when you think you have your CH behavior/cycles all figured out and predictable, they'll change like you never expected".

Glad that it's a good behavior change so far for your son. Understood why you'd be on guard and in a high state of readiness right now though.

How old is your son?  I have had episodic CH since I was 16, and I am now 33.  I remember in my younger days I would often skip my fall cycle all together.  Not sure why?? However, in my late 20's the cycles became much more consistent with both a fall and spring one.  I sometimes will still have the fall cycle start early or late, but the spring one is like clockwork.  That probably doesn't answer your question, but I would say it is absolutely normal to skip a cycle especially if he is younger.  Hope it doesn't start for him this fall and if there is any chance it is the sunflower seeds tell him to eat more!!!

no hes not on preventative because when i described his cycles and symptoms to Dr. Kudrow he said that he was a-typical (?) .. and didnt follow the normal CH pattern (if there is one).

my son will be 21 nov 12th.   a little nervous cuz he has a consult for wisdom teeth removal on thurs. but from what i have heard that doesnt mean much so im trying not to be nervous,, just hoping that when he gets them out it doesnt trigger anything   :(
