My last menstrual cycle was on 15th June and now its late. It was always regular. I'm also a virgin, so no chance of pregnancy. Why is it late?

Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more

Pseudopregnancy: Pseudopregnancy (also known as pseudocyesis) is a rare condition in which a woman believes she is pregnant and often she experiences pregnancy symptoms such as an enlarging abdomen, lack of menses, morning sickness and enlarged breasts. This condition may occur in women who have been longing to be pregnant or in the context of anxiety or depression. Although there isn't an obvious explanation, there are even rarer cases in which a woman with pseudopregnancy has a positive pregnancy test.
I recommend that you see your doctor. Your doctor can order a serum pregnancy test and check for the presence of a fetus in the uterus with an ultrasound. If you are pregnant, it is important to have regular prenatal care. In the uncommon situation that a woman has a true pseudopregnancy, she would be likely to benefit from counseling with an experienced therapist. ...Read more

Do a pregnancy test: Do not guess or wonder, the test will confirm or negative the pregnancy. To be on the safe side, if the test is negative, and if you still have symptoms, then repeat the test in a week. With 2 negative reliable tests a week apart, you are not pregnant.

Rhythm method: Sex on days close to the ovulation date is more favorable to become pregnant. This is the time which is mid cycle (day 15 or approximately 10 days after the period stops). Start two days before and continue daily for 7- 8 days. The period one week before and one week after the period is least fertile and unlikely to result in a pregnancy...so you can skip this time. ...Read more
