10 days late period 2 months ago then a normal 29 day one and now 7 days late again and no period yet. I'm usually regular? Should I be worried?

Not necessarily: If you have been extremely stressed this will affect your cycles and can cause irregular bleeding. If you feel well and have no pelvic pain, it's okay to just wait and see if your cycles normalize in the next month or two. If not, check in with your doctor. ...Read more

Can PMS be severe at first then become less severe in a few days? Period late 2 days but never had sex. Worried to death?

Can PMS be severe at first then become less severe in a few days? Period late 2 days but never had sex. Worried to death?

Why so worried?: "worried to death" sounds much to serious for this, because normal women occasionally get their periods a couple of days early or a couple of days late. Life is not exact, so many women's periods don't come exactly when expected. If worried because there are other things happening in life, check with the primary care doctor for advice. ...Read more

My BF & I had sex and we used protection...my period is 2 days late...And I was sick for 4 days last week. Is that why my period is late? I'm worried.

My BF & I had sex and we used protection...my period is 2 days late...And I was sick for 4 days last week. Is that why my period is late? I'm worried.

Not likely: Most women are not on the spot every month for their entire reproductive lives and a late or early will happen now and then. However, if by protection you mean condoms, they are only 80% effective (2 out of 10 condom users get pregnant using them). So, check a pregnancy test anyway. ...Read more

Bf ejaculated, late period, negative test, next day period, 1wk later depo now I am worried I maybe pregnant?

Pregnancy unlikely: Urine pregnancy tests are very accurate, as long as one uses the tests properly and knows how to read the results. She can test 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a regular period. If still worried, she can repeat a test after 1 more week. If a woman has two valid negative results, and the tests were done about 3 and 4 weeks after sex, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

I'm wondering if I'm pregnant. I've never been sexually active but my period is late I'm worried. What may be the reason?

Late Period: Hello. Late periods can occur from stress. Also, within the 1st year of your first period, it may miss months. Imbalanced hormones that regulate periods can be a cause. To address your pregnancy concerns, pregnancy only occurs with sexual contact which includes penile-vagina contact during foreplay. For this, a pregnancy test is needed. For consults, my link is

Reg 28day cycle. 1-day late period. Had unprotected sex, he pulled out. Worried about precum, took planb 18hrs later. 4 days late, no spotting. Preg?

Probably not: When you take a morning after pill, it can alter the subsequent period. You can have early bleeding or late bleeding, or prolonged spotting. These symptoms should resolve after your next 1-2 menstrual cycles. To be 100% safe, you may want to take a pregnancy test two weeks from the event, since this period may not be normal. ...Read more

Re do test: If you had sex since your last period, you may wish to repeat the pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.

Normal blood tests but period came a month late? Worried it could've caused a hormonal disturbance and cause hair loss.

Normal blood tests but period came a month late? Worried it could've caused a hormonal disturbance and cause hair loss.

Unlikely: Menstrual disturbances are usually caused by a hormone problem. However, an isolated delayed menses would not likely cause hair loss. I suggest that you work with your gyn or pcp to try and learn what might have been the problem. Occasional delayed menses can be very difficult to understand, but if the problem recurs then more likely to get an answer. Best wishes. ...Read more

I got my period late and it was watery dark red with blood clots and I had a lot of cramping worried what does this mean?

Natural variation: What you described falls within usual variations in menstrual periods. 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.
