Hi doc, 
these two days i has pain at my right waist. I suspected that I am pregnant due to my period late 3 days already. Is this possible happen that?

These are relatively inexpensive (compared to cost of raising a child!) and readily available at most grocery & drug stores. If it's negative & you want to get pregnant, go see your family doc for preconception counseling & start taking prenatal vitamins. ...Read more
