See answer: Based on your description, pregnancy unlikely. Pregnancy requires sperm to come in contact with the cervix during your "fertile window" which is the day of ovulation and the preceding 5 days. Best time to take a home pregnancy test is 1 week after missed scheduled period. ...Read more

Vegetarian/Menses: An association between vegetarian diet and menstrual disorders, it is still not clear if this is due solely to the vegetarian diet or due to the overall inadequate nutrition with decreased proportions of fat and protein in the diet.

My period late 6 days and after sex bleeding started. My menstrual cycle 28 sometimes 34.I don't take any pill & my husband always use condom.

My period late 6 days and after sex bleeding started. My menstrual cycle 28 sometimes 34.I don't take any pill & my husband always use condom.

Likely not pregnant: So I don't know if you are 6 days late in a 28 day cycle, or you are on day 40...6 days late after a 34 day cycle. The bleeding coming after you had sex is probably just a coincidence; if you have repeat bleeding after intercourse, that needs checking. Regular, proper condom use prevents pregnancy over 95% of time, so odds are in your favor you are not pregnant. Wait another week, then PG test ...Read more

I'm 7 days late for my menstrual cycle. Today I started spotting. My past period was 8/25 - 8/30. Before that it was 7/12 - 8/5. Pregnant?

Unusual periods: If your periods were 7/12-8/5 and 8/25 - 8/30 those are irregularly spaced and the first one was much longer than the average period. It may be that you have some irregular periods and need to see your primary care physician to help balance your hormones to make your periods more regular. There is always a chance you are pregnant if you are sexually active. I would advise you to get a test. ...Read more

My period is late. I am cycle day 44.usually had a 30 day menstrual cycle but last period came on cycle day 36. I hav done hpt. All negative. Wht t do?

Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. Home urine pregnancy tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex. ...Read more

Menstrual cycle avg. Is 30 days. If I'm 7 days late (doc says that's normal), does that qualify as an irregular period since it's greater than 35 days?

Menstrual cycle avg. Is 30 days. If I'm 7 days late (doc says that's normal), does that qualify as an irregular period since it's greater than 35 days?

Trends: A single late period is not enough to qualify you for a diagnosis of irregular periods. Keep a calendar of your bleeding in order to find out for sure whether or not you truly do menstruate every 30 days or if you experience more fluctuation. I would not be too concerned unless you are missing more than three periods per year. ...Read more

I uses nuvaring the 1st day of my menstrual cycle which was July 20th left in for 10days, then took out. Period is late, is this normal?

Confusing: If you put the nuvaring in on July 20th, then took it out early on July 30th, you still would just this week be due for your next period. Since the nuvaring contains hormones, your cycle may be thrown off. If you are having sex, you should be using condoms and/or another form of birth control. ...Read more

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Not pregnant yet: Since you took a pregnancy test this implies that you are sexually active. Consider starting birth control to prevent being a teen mother. This will also help provide menstrual cycle control. It is not rare to have an “off” menstrual cycle from time to time when not on birth control. ...Read more

Is it possible that I am pregnant? My menstrual cycle is irregular normally; I can miss my period up to 2 months late. My partner and I had intercourse several times before and after my period and he ejaculated in me every time. My last period was october

As: As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take another home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Since your period is usually irregular, this makes it difficult to time fertility windows and know what a missed period means. Since you had an infection the last time you had these symptoms, you should probably be checked by your doctor either way. Good luck! ...Read more
