This can happen near menopause or in women with endocrinologic reasons to not ovulate (e.g. Pcos, hypothyroid, etc). Your menses can be regulated with hormones, but you need to be evaluated for hormonal disorders. ...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.

Bled for 3 weeks (May). No period (June). 3 day period (July). On bc pills. Starting period 3 days early this month (August). Normal or pregnant?

Maybe not preg., but: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or a few days after she misses her expected withdrawal period if on birth control pills. ...Read more

Took Plan B pill 3 days before my period was due. Period is 3 days late & I'm cramping and having discharge. am I pregnant?

Unlikely: Best to check home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If negative repeat in 7 to 10 days. If both negative unlikely you are pregnant. Plan B will affect your period because of the hormones in the medication. Hope this was helpful. Be sure to use form of contraception in the future such as birth control pill or condom to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Best of luck. Dr R ...Read more

Period 3 weeks late but 3 negative pregnancy tests. Tested one week after expected period too. What's the problem?

Missed Period: Pregnancy tests are usually accurate a week after missing a period. Most likely you are not pregnant but missed your period for some other reason. There are many reasons this can happen such as stress, dieting, exercise, thyroid problems, etc. Rarely a home pregnancy test can miss a problem pregnancy such as an ectopic. If you miss frequently, you should see an Ob/Gyn and find out why. ...Read more

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
