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

Pregnancy : Pregnancy is a possibility. If you want to be sure you can purchase an early prediction pregnancy test. This will usually give an accurate result a week before your missed period. However if you want to wait a week or more that is also a reasonable option, since a woman's menstrual cycle can vary for a variety of reasons (stress, weight changes, medications etc.). Your tender breasts and discharge may just be pre-menstrual symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

I am three days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Could it be too early to tell?

I am three days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Could it be too early to tell?

Can retest in 1 week: 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

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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 just a late period. ...Read more

I am three days late on my period. I took the Plan B pill about two weeks ago. Took a pregnancy test two days ago, negative. Could I still be pregnant?

I am three days late on my period. I took the Plan B pill about two weeks ago. Took a pregnancy test two days ago, negative. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: Obviously you were very concerned about the possibility of being pregnant since you took plan b. Emergency contraception is not 100% effective, so it is certainly possible to be pregnant. A negative pregnancy test is reassuring but that is also not 100% accurate either way, especially early. Irregular periods can be from pregnancy, or other causes, so if worry continues, be seen and checked out. ...Read more

Could be normal: But you could have hormonal changes. Many things like illnesses, stress and pregnancy might explain your symptoms. Please see your gyn. Tough to give you an accurate answer without an exam and more history. ...Read more

I am 3 days late for my period, if im not pregnant then what could be the issue for skipping a period? Im not stressing

May be normal: It is normal to have a cycle every 28 days +/- 7 days. If you are 10days late (and that is not normal) for you, then perform home pregnancy test. It's difficult for every month of your life to have a cycle spot on, year after year. Totally normal for a cycle to vary a little here and there. If sexually active, we recmommend birth control, if no cycle in a month , see your dr. ...Read more

Perimenipause.: Noticing that you are 45 years old, if your periods have always been regular and now it's 3 days late, it may just be a month that is slightly different. However, if the irregularity increases/continues then it is likely perimenopause. ...Read more
