Amenorrhea: After no period for 3 months, a pregnancy test would certainly be positive if you were actually pregnant, so I think you can believe the result from your appointment. The Gynecologist will consider other causes of missing periods (being too thin, hormone imbalance, etc), do an exam, perhaps do an ultrasound. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm hoping to get in birth control for my very irregular periods. Should I see a general practitioner or gynecologist?

I'm hoping to get in birth control for my very irregular periods. Should I see a general practitioner or gynecologist?

Either, see details.: A gp is a good gateway to period regulation, especially if this is your initial attempt at birth control. Gp's can provide you with medical reconciliation, baseline labs and most birth control. Intra uterine devices (iuds) and implantable rods such as nexplanon, however, may need to be inserted at the gynecologist's office. ...Read more

Can you be pregnant and still see your period? What are the signs one might see or feel to tell their pregnant?

Can you be pregnant and still see your period? What are the signs one might see or feel to tell their pregnant?

No: If a woman has her NORMAL regular menstrual period, she is presumed not pregnant. If she thinks she is pregnant, then doing a urine pregnancy test the week after missing her "normal" period, the week after getting an "strange or abnormal period", or 3 weeks after having sex, should give an accurate result. The pregnancy test needs to be done correctly and read correctly. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant 2 weeks before your period and still see a regular period? You said yes. But when you are pregnant you can not see period.

Not until later: A woman who gets pregnant can see her regular period about a month or more later if she miscarries very early in her pregnancy (of course, she would no longer be pregnant at the time of seeing her regular period). Otherwise, she won't see her period until about 1-2 months after she finishes her pregnancy. ...Read more
