Maybe. Maybe not.: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more

Check MTHFR: 677 ; 1298 genotypes to give implantation and to prevent neural tube defects. If +, treat with l-methylfolate, p, and methylcobalamin. Avoid regular added Folic Acid (like those in regular prenatals). Neevodha is best alternative for mthfr + patients. Test for pregnancy with first morning urine for best results.Good luck! ...Read more

Period is five days late and negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: if you are using standard urine pregnancy tests it is possible that they are not sensitive enough and that you are not far enough along in a pregnancy to be detected. That being said, typically negative urine preg means not pregnant, the only way to be sure is to see your doctor and have a beta quantitative HCG blood test. Best of luck. ...Read more
