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

As : As this sounds like the first time ever you have skipped two months - it is not too worrying, and could either be a one-off, or the start of having more irregular periods. Have you been under extra stress such as final exams or moving house, increased your exercise level (like training for a half-marathon or marathon), or recently lost or gained significant amounts of weight? Many conditions, other than pregnancy, can make your periods irregular - commonly polycystic ovarian sydrome (pcos), also underactive or overactive thyroid, excess prolactin hormone, aging of the ovary (diminished ovarian reserve), or low hormone levels (hypogonadism) from heavy exercise, eating disorders, weight loss, or stress. Some medications can affect your cycles as well. If you have a genetic tendency to have pcos and you gain weight it can make your cycles irregular. The only way to be 100% sure that you are not pregnant is if you have not been sexually active with a male partner since your last period. Otherwise, even highly effective birth control methods have a small failure rate, with the Mirena iud having the lowest pregnancy rate (along with surgical tubal ligation), and a blood pregnancy test should be done to be 100% sure that you are not pregnant including a very early pregnancy or an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests are not quite as sensitive as a blood test. I recommend seeing a ob/gyn md to find out what's going on. Your cycle being late is not related to not having your annual exam, which includes a pap smear to screen for cervical pre-cancer, but you could schedule this too. If you are sexually active, once a year testing for chlamydia is also recommended for women under 26, as part of your annual check-up, as this infection is common and often goes unnoticed. If you continue having irregular cycles, i recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinologist for testing, and for treatment (if needed), even if you are not trying to conceive. Our website is below. Best wishes. ...Read more

Possibly: The heavy period on the 9th may have been implantation bleeding, though it is usually light. The only way to know for sure would be a pregnancy test. You could have become pregnant after the 9th of january. ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infection, polyps, fibroids and hormonal changes can cause spotting. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle.

Hi. Ive missed 2 periods and im not pregnant but ive gained weight?  Is the weight gain due to missed periods and is there some thing wrong with me. I'm 32 female

Missed Periods: can occur in certain medical conditions related to the ovaries and/or uterus in the absence of pregnancy. Some of these conditions can cause weight gain. I would recommend seeing your doctor for a physical exam and for labs. These labs can show if you have imbalances in the hormones that regulate your period. With these labs, I recommend getting your sugar and cholesterol checked. Best regards. ...Read more

Very unlikely: Pregnancy tests are accurate and reliable, and although no test is 100%, pregnancy tests are close. If you have more than one negative pregnancy test then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. I agree with your Gyno's plan. You should of course have one more pregnancy test prior to taking the pill(s) to start your period. ...Read more
