It is not normal but: It is not normal but irregular periods are not that uncommon. I will suggest she consult her gynecologist to make sure there is nothing wrong and if she needs some therapy like birth control pills to regulate her periods. ...Read more

Several causes: The spotting that you had on the 18th was probably due to ovulation, since it occurred 13 days after the start of the may 5th menses. I agree that your menses is slightly late, by a week. It is not uncommon for women to have variations in their menses. Weight loss, stress, travel, illness, change in birth control, and new medications can all cause changes in the menses. ...Read more

What are your goals?: Irregular periods are very common. If you want menstrual cycle control then birth control is a great option. Since you are undergoing infertility treatments menstrual cycle control is not the priority.

Unclear use: Progesterone tablets can be used for a variety of gynecologic conditions. In general they will stop menstrual bleeding while taking it and trigger one when stopping. They do not have long term effects after stopping them. Confirm with your doctor how you are supposed to take the medication and for what period of time. Make sure the directions and plan are clear ...Read more

Possibly from stress: Car accident can lead to a stressful situation that affects the period and also lead to spotting. If you are not on any birth control pills, then wait for next period to see what happens. I hope that you are using some other form of birth control measures. If you are already on a pill then the problem will usually correct by itself. If problem persists or gets worse, please see your Ob/Gyn. ...Read more

Is it normal to have your periods delayed by a few days especially when your not having intercourse at all?

Is it normal to have your periods delayed by a few days especially when your not having intercourse at all?

Probably normal: A few days variation in your cycle lengtht is likely normal. Having sex does not affect the cycle length - unless you conceive. If your periods are occuring anywhere from 21 to 35 days from the start of one period to the start of the next period, you are in the normal range for cycle lengths. ...Read more

Probably temporary: Most women will experience occasional irregularity of their menstrual cycle. If it persists, and you are not pregnant ( obtain a pregnancy test), your gyn will probably want to check your thyroid and prolactin hormones and perhaps order a pelvic ultrasound and some additional lab work. Again, this pattern will prove, hopefully, to be a temporary problem. Good luck. ...Read more
