It's: It's less likely you are pregnant since your period came, but it is still a possibility. The only way to know if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. 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 - whichever is easier for 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. ...Read more

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

Definitely could be: Withdrawal is a very poor method of contraception since you have to say no when your body says go and the highest concentration of sperm is in the first ejaculatory impulse ("precum"). You need to do a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, begin a reliable method of contraception and use condoms to decrease the risk of STDs. Be safe. ...Read more

Anovulation: You may not have ovulated during your last cycle. This is why your period didn't come on time. I assume the case in which you are not pregnant (if there is any doubt, make sure you have a pregnancy test done). When you don't ovulate, your period won't come but the lining of the uterus continues to grow until it is too big for blood vessels to supply it. Then it starts shedding causing your symptom. ...Read more

Last month my period came late and I haven't gotten it yet this month And there's still two days left for the month is it normal or no?

Not normal...: If you usually have regular periods and now this is anew change from your usual then this is certainly not normal. If you are sexually active the first thing to check for is pregnancy, so get a test ASAP. If not then there may be hormonal variations or abnormalities, infections, stress among others that could be causing this. Try to get evaluated with your GYN provider as soon as possible. ...Read more

Many options: There are multiple options. Hormonal treatments such as birth control pills, Progesterone treatments and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud are effective reversible treatments that will help many people.

My period was nearly two weeks late last month. I took several hpts, all negative, then my period came, heavy but normal. Now I am late again. Why?

My period was nearly two weeks late last month. I took several hpts, all negative, then my period came, heavy but normal. Now I am late again. Why?

Hormonal imbalance: You may be entering menopause. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

My period came on the same day (10th) for the past two months. But it was late one day today. Should I worry? I've had unprotected sex.

My period came on the same day (10th) for the past two months. But it was late one day today. Should I worry? I've had unprotected sex.

Don't worry: The important thing is that your period came. You aren't pregnant if you had a period that is normal in duration and flow and came about the right time. Its not unusual for your period to come a day early or late. This is just biologic variation and isn't significant. If you don't want to get pregnant, you may want regular contraception such as the pill. Best wishes! ...Read more

My period came a week late and lasted two days. First day it was moderate and the second day it was light. But I felt cramps on the first day.

Could be normal: The timing of a period does not always appear on time and is influenced by many things from emotions, illness etc. If you are sexually active and use birth control pills I would not be overly concerned, but if the cramps continue it would be wise to make an appointment with your OB/GYN ...Read more

My period came last month two days early and now it's 5 days late, got cramping and back painhad unprotected sex 17th march and neg test last month?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I am on clomid (clomiphene) the last two cycles. I ovulated had sex. Now my period is late but no symtoms. Few days ago I wiped brownish blood but no period came?

Preg test: Hopefully the Clomid (clomiphene) worked. Have you checked a home pregnancy test? If it is positive then congratulations. If it is negative then it may indicate that Clomid (clomiphene) did not trigger ovulation. Discuss with your doctor using a Progesterone test with Clomid (clomiphene) to confirm ovulation ...Read more
