Hello doctor...My periods delayed by 5 days. I never get like this..I took pregnancy test yesterday is very very faint line in window result..Im pre?

Quite possibly: The line shows a reaction of the b-hcg hormone in your urine. A faint line could mean low levels (early result) or too much urine on the stick (result wash out). I would retest at home in a couple days or go to your doctor for a more sensitive blood test sooner. ...Read more

Have unprotected sex: You're not considered infertile until you've tried to conceive for 12 months w/o any success. Try to enjoy the moment rather than turn baby making into a chore. Yes, ovulation prediction kits can help improve odds but don't make this into a job. In meantime, go see your family doc to make sure you're both healthy. And start taking prenatal vitamins now to minimize risk for spinal tube defects. ...Read more

Antibiotics & period: Antibiotics certainly have side effects- we all know that. One side effect is that they can affect the metabolism of birth control pills. So you have to be extra careful if you are sexually active. On a different note, if you were very sick recently, your body might forego a period if the illness really weakened you. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Delaying Menses: There is no medical reason to have a menstrual cycle. Many women take continuous birth control pills, such as seasonique and seasonale. It you want to skip your menses, this will not affect fertility in the future. I recommend skipping placebo pills and taking the next pack straight through. You may have some irregular bleeding the first time. ...Read more
