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

Hello. I had brown spotting for 4 days that started 2 days before my expected period. My period is now 6 days late, but I am getting negative pregnanc?

Hormones: The brown spotting may have been an abnormal period from a hormonal fluctuation that just threw your cycle off. A negative home pregnancy test pretty much rules out a pregnancy (or at least rules out implantation from a fertilized egg). Wait for your next cycle and if things don't return to normal, go see PCP or Gyno ...Read more

A few possibilities : If your ovulation was delayed this cycle, it would delay the start of your period. There are a few things that could delay ovulation, stress being a common culprit. Another possibility could be an early miscarriage. If you are concerned, call your Gyn for a follow up. It never hurts to follow up, especially if you are typically consistent in your cycles and this one seemed abnormal. ...Read more

For how long can emkit delay my period. Im 3 days late on period , had unprotected sex 13 days back?

Up to 2 months: It's possible to have cycle irregularities for up to 2months after taking emkit. A pregnancy test would turn positive at 10-14 days after the sex, especially if you used first urine of the morning. So repeat the test tomorrow (at day 14) using the first urine of the morning. If it's negative, you're not pregnant. Consider using a reliable form of contraception to avoid future pregnancy scares. ...Read more

I am two days past my missed period have had brown discharge both days negative hpt (had twin c-sec 6 mon ago) periods have been regular to the day?

Probably period: Brown equals old blood. It sounds like that was your period although likely not a normal period for you. It is typical to have an "off" period every now and then. This usually corrects itself over the next few cycles. If it continues see your doctor to discuss cycle regulation. Birth control is very effective at regulating the cycle and preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

Conception optimum: A cycle starts the day a woman starts spotting and ends the day before the next spotting. Cycle length between 25 and 32 days are "normal". 37 day cycle can still get pregnant. Ovulation occurs cycle length minus 14, that is between day 11 and 23. Sperm survives for 4 days. Women desiring to conceive should start having intercourse on day 7 of their cycle and then every other day until day 23. ...Read more
