My periods are very regular. Every after 28 days I got it. But this time I have 2 days late period. What is the reason want to get pregnent?

Hormonal imbalance: If you did not have unprotected sex since your last period, it is likely to be hormonal imbalance. 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.

Takes a male for pg: You can only get pregnant if you have an encounter where sperm enters your vagina. Self sex does not count.

Have missed/late period. I had a 3cmx3cm ovary cyst nov 14 when I got it checked I had my period. I didn't get my period in December. Can this be why?

May be: If you had sex since your last period, it would be prudent to do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later 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.

Suffering from pcod, trying to conceive, my normal cycle length is 35 days, the month we try I always get late period. Currently on metformin?

I'm not sure: What your question is. If you're already on metformin, make sure you advance the dose gradually to the most effective dose of 2, 000 mg/day. If additional therapy is needed such as spironolactone, talk w/your doctor and continue efforts at diet, exercise and weight reduction. ...Read more

How many days after sex can you get a pregnancy blood test taken? I had one done 19 days after sex and a late period. Came back negative. Accurate?

How many days after sex can you get a pregnancy blood test taken? I had one done 19 days after sex and a late period. Came back negative. Accurate?

Likely: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow 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.

I've had pcos. And I get late period even after ovulation. 25 26 days after I have ovulated. What might be the reason? Shudnt it come within 2 weeks?

PCOS is the answer: PCOS in of itself causes hormonal ovulatory suppression and changes to your menstrual cycle. Normally, period flow starts about 2 weeks after ovulation if not pregnant. Consult a GYN MD if this pattern continues as certain Rx's can adjust the problem. ...Read more

Late period, negative hpts, clear sometimes creamy discharge. What could be wrong with me? Any fast way to get pregnant? I'm trying to conceive. Help!

Maybe nothing: There might not be anything wrong with you. A young woman such as yourself will want to have unprotected sex for a year before seeking assistance. If your periods are fairly regular (other than late once in awhile), then you're ovulating. Healthy living is important, good diet, take prenatal and exercise regularly. 30% of the time infertility is due to male, don't forget that! ...Read more

I have always been a regular, and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant. Now this month I have a late period, I have had a missed period for a week now, but I take a pregnancy test and it comes out negative. Is it too soon for me to take it?

I have always been a regular, and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant. Now this month I have a late period, I have had a missed period for a week now, but I take a pregnancy test and it comes out negative. Is it too soon for me to take it?

Depends: Urine pregnancy tests rely on hormones generated by the developing conceptus to turn positive. It takes time for these to come out in any quantity. The first morning urine is the most concentrated and a good sample. If you were exposed and worried, another test or two are warranted. Some women just skip a cycle occasionally, followed by a heavy one. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant if you have unprotected sex the day before your period? Had sex with my bf the day before I was supposed to have my period. I took a pregnancy test 3 days after my late period and another about 10 days after I expected to have my peri

You: You can get pregnant at any point during your cycle, even though it is much less common to get pregnant during menstruation. Even though pregnancy is the number 1 reason for a missed period, other things can cause an irregular cycle also such as stress, poor diet, lots of exercise and hormone imbalance. Even though most home pregnancy tests are 97% accurate a week or 2 after your missed period, if you are still worried, you may want to have your doctor test you. Even if your test comes out negative at the doctor's office, you can discuss your missed period with them and also various methods of birth control that will work for you. ...Read more

Sounds like PMS: Your cycle is governed by the computer in the lower brain. Pms is caused most commonly by poor diet and the sweet/ salt craving that often accompanies the emotional lability is part of it. Look to your diet, not hormones. If it is pregnancy you will know by missing the next period. ...Read more
