Yes: Hello, During the first year after starting to have periods it IS common for teens to have irregular cycles. Even later on most women's cycles vary by several days each month. But if by late you mean that your periods come more than 28 days apart, maybe 32 or 34, that may not be late periods but just longer than average cycles. Keep track of them and see. ...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. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

What's best to regularize my period as its always late. Is it Duphaston or Primolut n? Considering taking 1x3 pills/day. I'm 33 days late & not pregnt

Depends: While the progesterones you mention can cause a withdrawal bleed, it may be that you don't have any lining to bleed from. Have you talked to your doctor about birth control? Typical birth control is a combo of estrogen/progesterone, which typically gives a woman a regular cycle. Consider that thyroid can also play as role, as can weight (too heavy/thin). Talk to you doctor for additional info. ...Read more

So my period is NEVER late its always early and I have regular periods now 2 days has passed and it hasn't came I want to be pregnant is that a sign?

Yes, but be patient: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… A urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a period, gives a reliable result. ...Read more

My period is late for about 6 days but got it 1a month ago,haven't been sexually active for about 2 months and my period is always regular,is it late?

Probably: It is probably just late but occasionally you will have a bleed one month after you become pregnant so check a pregnancy test tomorrow in the first morning urine. If it is negative then your period is just late. There are many reasons for this. If it does not get back to regular in a few months see your doctor. ...Read more

Yes: Check a pregnancy test if your period is late. Technically you can get pregnant anytime if not using protection. There are more fertile times of the cycle than others, but ovulation can happen at unexpected/different times of the cycle, and is even more unpredictable if your cycle is not regular. ...Read more

I am on the pill, but missed 2 pills. My period came 1 day late (always ontime), is very light, and mostly dark brown discharge. Can I be pregnant?

I am on the pill, but missed 2 pills. My period came 1 day late (always ontime), is very light, and mostly dark brown discharge. Can I be pregnant?

Not likely: It is possible but not likely. The timing of the missed pills does influence the chance of pregnancy. Missing 2 pills in a row, or missing them mid cycle increases the odds. Missing them just before your expected period would decrease the odds. Consider putting a reminder on your phone or leaving the pills next to your tooth brush to remind you to take them at the same time may help. ...Read more

Can't tell: you need to be challenged, by stopping all birth control methods, try to conceive for at least a year in a stable relationship and regular intercourse, before deciding to investigate your ferlity status. Hormonal and ovulation studies , besides other studies as Ultrasound can be performed any time, but you still need to try to conceive, good luck ...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. Sounds like this is just a late period. ...Read more
