Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

I have endometriosis been on 21 day cycle dr said after 3rd pack have my period, I missed my period and have had 2 negative pregnancy tests, help?

Pill effect: You're ok! One effect of the pill is to decrease the growth of lining tissue in the uterus. On occasion, it can become so thinned out that there will be no bleeding on a "period". This is ok on the pill. You've already done the important thing - getting a pregnancy test. If you continue using the pill you will probably get a light period at each three month period. No long term effect for you. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like this is just a late period. ...Read more

I finished my bc pack on oct. 29. I haven't got my period, I took 2 home pregnancy tests and both were negative. When can I start my new pack?

Options: You can really start whenever you like. If your last period was oct 29th you can wait until your next period starts (which should be any day now). Since your pregnancy test is negative you could also just start them now but then know that you won't have a period until you finish the next pack. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at a week after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may repeat the test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Breastfeeding: It is very common to have irregular periods while breastfeeding. Breastfeeding can interfere and in some cases prevent ovulation. It is not a reliable form of birth control for those who do not wish to conceive. If your pregnancy tests are negative then you are not pregnant at this time. ...Read more

Could I be pregnant? I'm 26 years old and I haven't had my period now for 2 months, I have had unprotected sex. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests in the last 3 weeks and they have come up negative. I'm I taking the tests to early or could there be something

Could I be pregnant? I'm 26 years old and I haven't had my period now for 2 months, I have had unprotected sex. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests in the last 3 weeks and they have come up negative. I'm I taking the tests to early or could there be something

As: As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a young, fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a 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 it sounds as though you have taken them at the right time.

There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck! ...Read more

I have light pink staining when I wipe. It has been six days of light pink. My period is due tomorrow. Four negative pregnancy tests.?

Tested too early: Home pregnancy test should be done 5 or more days after a missed period. A negative result on a test done too early does not exclude pregnancy. You may wish to re do the test in about 5 days, if you do not get your period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

I am 15 days late from getting my period and no signs of it starting. What should I do? I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and they have been negative but every now and then I have pregnancy symptoms

If: If you think you might be pregnant and are not sure if your home pregnancy test kits are accurate, then you should call your doctor. Many times they can give you a more sensitive urine test or even a blood test to see if you are pregnant. And even if you are not pregnant, they may be able to try and figure out why you might have missed a period which is also helpful. ...Read more

Missed my period for 3 months now. Negative pregnancy tests and no symptoms of pregnancy. I have lost 60lbs within the last year as well. On mirena (levonorgestrel).?

Hormonal imbalance: If you have lost more weight than may be normal for your height, that my cause amenorrhea.
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.

Evaluation: If the pregnancy tests are negative and you have no symptoms of pregnancy, you are probably not pregnant. There are a lot of things that can make you miss periods. Evaluation with a full history, an exam and appropriate testing are needed to know what is going on in your case. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I am late on period, should I worry? I have never been late, and have taken three pregnancy tests that all came out negative, but I still have not gotten my period I am still worried.

I: I don't know what time period you took your tests, but it would be reasonable to wait two days from the last one and take another urine test. If you are still not sure, then you can go in and have a blood pregnancy test which is more accurate. If you get pain, vomiting, or new complaints then you must be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Took morning after pill (nordette) in december and once again in february. Now my period is very late? Took 4 pregnancy tests but all were negative

Sound like no: It sounds as if you aren't pregnant. Possibly a hormone imbalance is occurring as cause for lack of menstrual cycle as opposed to pregnancy. Could be hormonal, due to pituitary or thyroid, or due to weight (thin/heavy). If still doesn't come for a few more weeks, consider seeing doctor to evaluate. As well birth control pills can help regulate cycle. Best wishes. ...Read more

My period is a week late and I've had 2 neg pregnancy tests one just done yesterday. I've been experiencing dull pains in stomach. Could I be pregnant?

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

Could I be pregnant? My period is five days late. I did have sex but I used a condom that did not break and he pulled out before he even came in the condom. I took two pregnancy tests both were negative. I just started school and have been stressed for a

Yes: Yes and yes. If your internal stress levels are high enough it can impact when you menstruate. A condom is good protection, but is not a 100% guarantee. You might wish to wait about a week out from the last pregnancy test to repeat it (if your period has not started by then). ...Read more

I've not had my period for 48 days now; I'm never late and I've taken 4 pregnancy tests; two a week ago and two a couple of days ago. All negative?

Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like hormone pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is a cause of a missed period, but preg. Tests are accurate 3 wk after sex. ...Read more

Could I be pregnant? I have missed my period for 3 months now and took a couple pregnancy tests and it came back negative. I have had some pregnancy symptoms. I was wondering if I could be pregnant or what is wrong with me?

The: The odds of you being pregnant are fairly low with all pregnancy tests being negative thus far and 3 months with no menses. The absence of your period (amenorrhea) can be due to multiple issues such as hormonal imbalances, stress/anxiety, extreme weight gain or loss. The bottom line here is to see your doctor for a visit. He/she will likely repeat pregnancy test and perform appropriate tests, and possibly give hormones to induce a period.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I've missed my period and I took 2 pregnancy tests, they came back negative. I also had the adiana procedure done last year. Should I be worried?

Not Uncommon: It's not unusual to miss a cycle every now & then. You're correct to worry if you become pregnant after hysteroscopic sterilization so if you have symptoms of pregnancy despite negative tests, see your doc. A positive test should prompt you to see your doc asap (usually the same doc who did your procedure) so an ectopic can be ruled out & your safety confirmed. Take care. ...Read more
