Your period : If you are having spotting at the time or around the time of your cycle then that is your period. Just a light one. You have done the right thing by checking a pregnancy test. This is not unusual at all. ...Read more

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.

Many possible causes: Pregnancy isn't the only thing that can cause you to miss your period. Extreme dieting, anorexia, training for a marathon, PCOS, thyroid problems, anovulation, uncontrolled diabetes and many other things can cause this. If its more than a one month pattern, see an Ob/Gyn and find out. Best wishes! ...Read more

My period is 9 days late it was suppose to come on 04/20/2014 the month is almost over & it still hasn't come should I be worried?

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  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. ...Read more

My period is 9 days late,  what can be the reason for that ?

Hormonal: I will assume you have taken a urine pregnancy test and you are not pregnant, right? If not, it's generally nothing serious. It can be something as simple as a very stressful week at school/work or personal life. C. I will also assume you do not have pcos (polyystic ovarian syndrome - condition associated with irregular cycles). Repeat pregnancy test in 1-2 weeks to make sure you are not pregnan. ...Read more

My period is 9 days late, it was supposed to come on on OCT 23 & it didn't..I had sex on OCT 22?

Pregnancy test: If you were anticipating your menses on 10/23, and did not have unprotected intercourse prior, specifically around 10/09, then your period is just delayed. However, you could have had a late ovulation around 10/22 and could have conceived at that time. If by 11/5 you have not come on your period, you may want to take a urine pregnancy test. In the meantime, have only protected intercourse. ...Read more

I am 26 years old, and my period is 9 days late. How likely is it that I am pregnant? Or is there something else that could be causing this?

If sex in last 3-4 w: Your profile says you're 47 and the question says 26. That would make a difference but assuming you are 26 and always have regular periods and you've had unprotected sex within the last 4 weeks then yes, i would say it is likely that you are pregnant. That's the first thing any doctor would want to determine so i suggest you go get a pregnancy test right away. ...Read more
