Sometimes it's stress, illness, travel, or weight changes. If it only happens occasionally, then I wouldn't worry. ...Read more

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

Menstrual fluctuations are affected by many different factors, including nutrition, psychological state of mind, stress, infections/ illnesses, etc. If things continue to be irregular or unpredictable in the next couple of months, get yourself to a GYN or family Doc. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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. See a doctor to look for other causes for your symptoms ...Read more
