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

Because stress can fool with your hormones & then filter down to the ovary level & delay ovulation. Not in everybody, but maybe in you. Sure, it could be a coincidence & something else is happening. If so, after two months see your doc. And don't forget a pregnancy test ...Read more

What're reasons for a missed menstrual period other than pregnancy?

Quite a few causes: I would venture to say that most women missed at least a period or two during their reproductive years without known causes, so this could be normal. Many have irregular periods so missing here/there is normal. Thyroid disease, adrenal disease, pituitary problem (i.E prolactinoma), ovarian failure, infections, rapid wt loss, malnutrition, excessive exercises are few examples. Consult doc.
