I've been seven days late on my period and usually their always on time and started lactating and took a test it was- and now im lightly spotting .Norm

See a gyn: The combination of lactating & irregular cycles could be a sign of a growth called a pituitary adenoma. This can be screened for by measuring the level of a hormone called prolactin in the blood. If it is elevated then either a MRI or ct scan of the pituitary gland will diagnose the condition. It is treatable with medication. ...Read more

Could i be pregnant? My period came a day late and when it did come it was light and faint. Thought out the next few days even today my period is still and have been faint. This is not my normal flow for which it is normally heavy for all the seven days

Could i be pregnant? My period came a day late and when it did come it was light and faint.  Thought out the next few days even today my period is still and have been faint.  This is not my normal flow for which it is normally heavy for all the seven days

It : It is true that a missed or light period could indicate pregnancy.

As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come.

There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, illness, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If your pregnancy test is negative and you continue to not have your period, you should contact your doctor. ...Read more

My period came 2 days late. A day before it started I had a stringy brown discharge and it only lasted 5 days normally it last seven am I pregnant?

Likely not: Odds are that with a 5 day period, you are not pregnant, even if it was shorter than normal. Unfortunately, it is impossible to rule out pregnancy over the internet just based on symptoms. Please either take a home test or see your doctor for an office pregnancy test to find out for sure. ...Read more

Had a early misscarriage a month ago with bleeding and clots for seven days like my regular period, now my period is late could i be pregnant again?

That is: possible - if you have been sexually active since your miscarriage. However, a missed period doesn't necessarily mean pregnancy. Would go ahead and take a home pregnancy test to know. Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Take care. ...Read more

I'm seven days late on my period. I've taken 2 test and they all came out negative. I'm crampy, sore, an the smell of certain foods make me nauseous.

Be patient: Pregnancy tests are very sensitive this day and age, so be patient. If your period does not come, it may be an anovulatory cycle, so wait until you miss the next month too, then if that is missed, and you are having unprotected sex, keep checking preg tests, but seek gyn eval for work up of other causes of a missed cycle. Best wishes. ...Read more

RU pregnant: Post coital and irregular menses can cause worries of pregnancy. A pregnancy test, available at your local pharmacy, no prescription needed will usually settle the issue. If you are pregnant, start prenatal vitamins and get to your OB doc. If not pregnant, or still unsure then get in with your regular doc for blood tests and ultrasound. Be well. ...Read more

My period is 3days late and am not ready for the pregnancy because am still breastfeeding a seven month old baby.Pls advise?

Just do preg. test: One can just do a urine pregnancy test next week. A positive test, with a missed period, means a pregnancy. However, the 7 month-old baby will be 16 months-old by the time the new brother or sister is born. That's not too close together, but be sure the husband takes time off to help take care of the children. ...Read more

Options: An occasional off month is common and does not indicate a problem. For continued irregular periods see your obgyn for an exam and testing. Depending on your age and fertility plans there are lots of treatment options. Birth control pills can regulate your cycle. Your doctor will do blood work for thyroid disease as well as polycystic ovarian syndrome. No need to keep repeating the preg tests. ...Read more
