My cycle is longer than usual, ovulated on day 22, 35 day cycle. What could be the reason for this? Is a late period a sign of pregnancy?

Question?: What was the length of your prior period? Why do you think you ovulated on the 22 day? If you did ovulate on the 22 day menses usually would occur 14-16 days later.

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.

Could a period lasting longer than 2 weeks be a sign of pregnancy?

Could a period lasting longer than 2 weeks be a sign of pregnancy?

No: A missed period and a positive pregnancy test is the gold standard for knowing that you're pregnant. While women can be pregnant and have some irregular bleeding around the time of the menses, it typically isn't period bleeding (lighter). At 47 if you're period is lasting 2 weeks see an ob/gyn to evalute for possible fibroid, polyp, hormone changes or pre-cancer of uterus. Hopefully just hormon.

Could a five day long, irregular, on time period be a sign of pregnancy? No vaginal intercourse. Only possibly pre-ejac contact with clit.

Could a five day long, irregular, on time period be a sign of pregnancy? No vaginal intercourse. Only possibly pre-ejac contact with clit.

Not in this case: If still worried, can test. A urine pregnancy test done correctly 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. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.

My nose always become obstructed while tilting my head downward such as when reading and persist for long period, I haven't any signs of sinusitis?

See ENT: It is suspected that you may have nasal polyp that can cause nasal airway obstruction. Other symptoms may include postnasal drainage, dull headaches, snoring, and rhinorrhea. I recommend that you see ENT specialist for rhinoscopy.

Take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

There's: There's no way to know whether you are pregnant or not without a test, though many women will experience fatigue, breast swelling and tenderness, headaches, nausea/morning sickness, and/or frequent urination. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. 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. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to not have your period or if they become irregular, you should contact your doctor.

Is a early period a sign of pregnancy?

Is a early period a sign of pregnancy?

No: Pregnancy does not make you have a period which is early but otherwise normal. You can have spotting/bleeding at the time of ovulation (midcycle) or at implantation but this is not a normal period. If in doubt, check a pregnancy test and, to be sure, repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. Hope this helps.

Is period like cramps 19 days after a period a sign of pregnancy?

No: There is no way to know if you are pregnant at day 19. If you are pregnant this cycle, it is likely the embryo won't have even implanted yet, so it would be unusual to have symptoms.
