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. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

Pcos is associated with Insulin resistance and sometimes is corrected with medication used for diabetes, with resulting ovulation. ...Read more

If the second test is positive, there's a baby embryo or fetus in there. That means it's time to call one's doctor to schedule a prenatal visit. The usual ovarian cysts don't cause false positive pregnancy tests. ...Read more
