Doctor insights on: My Period Is 2 Days Late Should I Worry

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

On the nexaplnon. I am going on 12 days late period and today severe cramps for two days. What's going on!? Help?

Severe cramps?: Having late, irregular or missed periods is a common side-effect of Nexplanon. You shouldn't be surprised when this happens. Severe cramping may not have anything to do with the Nexplanon. It could be something else. If it is persistent, you should be evaluated in person by your doc. Best wishes! ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: It could be a normal variation on your cycle, or you could have lost an early pregnancy. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period.
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.

Can taking Plan B two months in a row cause long term effects like a late period? Second month of taking the pill I had a heavy period 4 days.

Can taking Plan B two months in a row cause long term effects like a late period? Second month of taking the pill I had a heavy period 4 days.

Unlikely long term: Taking plan B two months in a row is unlikely to create long term effects other than resulting in an irregular bleeding pattern.

2 weeks before expected period had brown discharge lasted two days. Now have bad heartbearn and late period. Neg hpt few days ago. What could it be?

2 weeks before expected period had brown discharge lasted two days. Now have bad heartbearn and late period. Neg hpt few days ago. What could it be?

Might be normal: 2 weeks before your period, you ovulated. Around ovulation, related to an abrupt drop in estrogen, you can have some breakthrough bleeding or brownish discharge. With the late period and other pregnancy like symptoms, I would recheck the pregnancy tesst. If you still do not get a period, then it is likely that you ovulated late and your cycle is delayed. ...Read more

Light brown discharge for 2 days about two weeks after plan b and 3 days before expected period preg? Now late period Took 3 plan b one steps in wk.5

Light brown discharge for 2 days about two weeks after plan b and 3 days before expected period preg? Now late period Took 3 plan b one steps in wk.5

About Plan B...: Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. If the pregnancy test is negative 3 weeks after Plan B, that means a woman is not pregnant from that episode. ...Read more

Off the pill for 7 months. Late period by 5 days, negative HPT two days ago. Now having brownish bloody discharge when wipe for last 2 days. What's up?

Late period: It sounds like you are just having a late period since your pregnancy test is negative and you are having bloody discharge. If pregnancy is not desired and you are wanting to regulate your periods consider restarting birth control. If you are trying to get pregnant then monitor your cycles over the next few months and see an Obgyn if they do not normalize ...Read more
