Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

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 a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. 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. It is always better to be safe than sorry and to know sooner rather than later. That being said, you are on birth control (progesterone) and if you take the pill at the same time every day, your chances of being pregnant are less than 1%. If you forget pills here and there, your risk of pregnancy jumps to almost 10%. Other reasons for missed periods are stress, poor diet, extreme exercise or weight loss, and hormone disorders such as thyroid problems. Good luck! ...Read more

Can chlamydia cause me to miss my period? Lmp was 11/11/2013 I am now 5 days late. Could i be pregnant?

It could, but....: The number one cause for a missed cycle is pregnancy, so if you had unprotected sex, than there is always the chance of pregnancy. Infections (like chlamydia), stress, weight changes, thyroid disorders, and an anovulatory cycle are all other possible causes. Best wishes. ...Read more

Not likely: By the time you are 5 days late for your period a pregnancy test should be positive if you are pregnant. However, you aren't necessarily having the 28 day cycles that you had while on pills and could have ovulated later than you think so pregnancy could still be a possibility. You could try another test in 5 days to see. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My period is five days late could i be pregnant and is it to soon to take a home pregnancy test?

My period is five days late could i be pregnant and is it to soon to take a home pregnancy test?

No: Most home pregnancy tests are highly accurate once you have missed your first period. Follow the instructions closely and use your first morning urine. It also helps for a more accurate method to collect the urine in a disposable paper cup and dip the test strip inside for the prescribed time vs holding the strip in the urine stream. Refrain from alcohol and cigarettes until you know for sure. ...Read more

Maybe. Maybe not.: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more
