If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Hormones: Your pituitary makes precursor hormones that tell your ovary when and how much estrogen and Progesterone to make, which determines the length of your cycle. Cycles do change over time. So long as no pituitary or thyroid problem, then change in cycle is due solely to changes in natural hormone production. Birth control pills can help regulate to 28 days, but unnecessary if that's only concern. ...Read more

Hi doc, I am 36 years old and have a son of 8years and want to have another child.My menstrual cycle is normal do I need medication to conceive?

Probably not: It sounds like you are in good health and are still far away from menopause. After age 35 genetic counseling is recommended because there is a higher risk for certain diseases in the baby. Generally you wouldn't start with fertility medication until after one year of trying to get pregnant. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. Best wishes and good luck! ...Read more

I : I can understand your concern as that is a very unusual menstrual cycle. Please take a pregnancy test to be sure that isn't the cause, but it sounds unlikely. Please have your thyroid hormones checked to be sure you are not hypothyroid. It is also important to be sure you are receiving adequate nutrition, as patient's with malnutrition can have irregular cycles. That is a very long time to go without a period so i advise that you do see a gynecologist and have this completely evaluated. ...Read more

You : You need to have a complete medical evaluation. You should have blood testing including thyroid hormone levels.

COULD BE EITHER: It could be partner #1 with whom you had sex on cycle day9-10, if you have a short menstrual cycle every 24-26 days. If your cycle is normally every 30-31 days, then my guess would be partner #2. Since the baby was conceived in 2011 and should have been born in 2012, which father does the baby look like? ...Read more
