Hormonal imbalance: 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.

Between menses bleed: Hello,
There are various reasons for new bleeding between menses. I would recommend starting with a vaginal exam with your Gynecologist to assess your cervix since this irregularity started after sexual intercourse. He/she will likely do cultures of the cervix but evaluate for any visible changes to the cervix that could explain your bleeding (i.e. cervical polyp). ...Read more

Sounds like a period: If you were late and now you are bleeding it sounds like this is your period..., even if it is light. This is supported by the fact you have a negative pregnancy test. ...Read more

May be: A period that is 5 days late may be nothing more than some of the normal variation in cycle length but if in doubt repeat the pregnancy test 3-5 days after the first test to be sure. ...Read more

Cycle flux: I understand the concern regarding the late period. There is something called Oligomenorrhea (periods at occur more than 35 days apart) and something called amenorrhea (no period for 6 months).If you had no sexual relations for the last 27 days and a neg preg test you could wait for a couple of days before deciding to see doc. But if you had sex then redo the pregnancy test sometimes they don't work ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are very common. If you normally have regular periods and then suddenly have one that is early or late this usually gets better on its own with cycles returning to normal over the next few months. If you are not wanting to be pregnant you should discuss birth control which will also help with cycle control. ...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

Hormonal imbalance: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at 12 days after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. 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.

May need to see GYN: If done correctly, pregnancy tests should be reliable within 12 days after ovulation. Abnormally light periods or absent periods can be from numerous causes, ranging from psychological stress to vigorous, prolonged exercise to a variety of medical problems. If the second cycle is similar or absent, see your gynecologist for an evaluation and, if need be, tests to find the answer. ...Read more

Drank alcohol, took planb and a week later heavy bleeding, had sex a week ago and period is late 6 days, 2 negative tests, pregnant?

No.: Pregnancy tests are very accurate so repeating the test will not change the result. Plan B is progesterone and caused you to menstruate thus "resetting" your cycle. You should expect a period within 3-4 weeks from when your menstration last ended. If you don't get a period in 5-6 weeks from last menstrual day then recheck pregnancy test. If still negative consult with your primary doc or OBGYN ...Read more

A one-time symptom?: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Period was 2 days late. Light bleeding for 2 days. Then 2 days later spotted once. Nausea and tired. Negative test. Pregnant or something else?

See answer: Several possibilities for your abnormal bleeding: *Most likely due to temporary hormonal fluctuation due to stress, exercise, or other factors. *Less likely due to Implantation bleeding (usually very scant bleeding and only 1 day, but possible). *Very early miscarriage. Recheck pregnancy test in 7 days as pregnancy is remotely possible. ...Read more

Menstruation: The character and length of your flow can vary cycle to cycle. As long as the interval from first day of bleeding to next first day of bleeding was between 21-32 days, this is also normal. What you are describing could very well be a normal variant of your natural cycle. ...Read more

Plan B effect: Plan b is essentially taking a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns in your body to delay or present ovulation. An abnormal period afterwards is not surprising. A pregnancy test should be done 14 days after plan b. The test is accurate at that point. Start birth control to prevent another scare. ...Read more
