Took emergency contraception (2hrs after sex), 19 days (2days missed period) later had negative quanti. Hcg blood test. Period still doesn't come. Why?

Took emergency contraception (2hrs after sex), 19 days (2days missed period) later had negative quanti. Hcg blood test. Period still doesn't come. Why?

Delayed period: One of the ways emergency contraception works is by causing the ovulation to be delayed. If the quant HCG is negative 19 days after the event, it's 100% certain that you're not pregnant. It would be safe to wait and see if the period gets back to normal over the next 2 months. If at continued risk of pregnancy, use an effective form of birth control. ...Read more

I tested today 2 days after missed period. Its negative. I got symptoms 1 week after sex. And continuous 2 days before miss period. Can I b pregnant?

Misinformed: Your symptoms are being incorrectly labeled by you as pregnancy symptoms when they are not. That would be impossible. A fetus is not conceived for up to five days after sex and then is not connected physically or chemically to a female's body until it is big enough to have blood cells and chemicals to share, about fourteen days after conception. You are not pregnant. The tests say no. ...Read more

Had my period Dec 19th. Sex on 27th. Three days spotting Jan 4th 2 light one heavier. Missed period yesterday. I'm confused!!!

Check: Periods do become less regular as menopause approaches and this may be the only reason but pregnancy is also a possibility so, if you have been having unprotected intercourse, check a pregnancy test and, if it is negative and your period still hasn't started, repeat it in 3-5 days. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Wait a little longer: You can take a regular home pregnancy test if you miss your period. Would wait at least 10 days after the day you had sex - then can consider use of an early pregnancy test. If that is negative, can repeat in a week or less with a first morning void if you don't get your period. ...Read more

Missed period should I be concerned I have missed my period for the past month had sex last week and three days later had light spotting for twelve hours didn't even need a pad or tampon. I have now missed another period, should I be concerned with pregna

As: As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can always 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.

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 have a positive pregnancy test or if you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give you doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
