My period is 10 days late. I've taken 2 pregnancy tests and both were negative and I've been having cramps. Is it possible my period was delayed because I was sick at the time of my normal ovulation? I've been having cramps like my period is about to star

Hormonal imbalance: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at 10 days after a missed period, you are not likely to be pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Is there a safe way to delay ovulation in a normal cyle by just a few days?

Possibly: By taking Clomid (clomiphene) starting on day 5 you can sometimes push the day of ovulation a couple of days later. This is not foolproof. It is more likely to work if you have a very short cycle and ovulate early and are trying to ovulate closer to day 14. There is a 5-10% risk of multiple birth (mostly twins) so it is not without risk. ...Read more

Does plan b cause a delay on ovulation or how does it work?

Prevent ovulation.: If taken at the right time, before your body sends a signal to ovulate (LH surge), EC can stop the signal and completely prevent ovulation. The follicle will likely degrade without the signal to release the egg. The EC would sustain the lining of the uterus and once that is cleared, you'll have a period. ...Read more
