It happens sometimes: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is a cause of a missed period, if contraception fails.

Pms symptoms for 3 weeks. Never happened before. Bloating, cramping, back pain and breast pain. I only get cramping 2-3 days before my period. Is it normal?

No: It sounds like you have a hormonal imbalance for some reason. You could see a doctor for evaluation and get something to give you some relief.

No period in months, pms symptoms/ pink spotting for 3 weeks, my first yeast infection last week, nauseous, metallic taste, negative pregnancy test?

No period in months, pms symptoms/ pink spotting for 3 weeks, my first yeast infection last week, nauseous, metallic taste, negative pregnancy test?

Multiple issues: If you missed more than two periods, it is time to see your doctor. Yeast infection is another reason to get tested and be screened for diabetes also. Metallic taste may be due to oral hygiene issues or nutritional causes. All of these items warrant that you see a doctor.

I have irregular cycles I have one every 4 or 5 months no PMS symptoms but it last about 3 weeks heavy heavy heavy. What could that be?

I have irregular cycles I have one every 4 or 5 months no PMS symptoms but it last about 3 weeks heavy heavy heavy. What could that be?

Irregular periods: It probably is suggestive that you are not ovulating every month and that your endometrium eventually becomes so thick that the uterus must expel it giving a hard and heavy period. It probably would be a good idea to be evaluated by a gynecologist, have an ultrasound and perhaps be placed on oral contraceptives to regulate your cycle.

I am on birth control and I've been getting PMS like symptoms for the past 3 weeks. Is this normal and what could be causing it?

I am on birth control and I've been getting PMS like symptoms for the past 3 weeks. Is this normal and what could be causing it?

Not PMS: Pms is a very specific syndrome where the drop in the hormones right before you have a cycle causes these symptoms. Pms would not happen for 3 weeks while on birth control hormone. Schedule a visit with a primary care doc and investigate other causes.

Went three months without a period. Then my period started and it was heavy and lasted 6 days with usual PMS symptoms. Could I be pregnant?

Went three months without a period. Then my period started and it was heavy and lasted 6 days with usual PMS symptoms. Could I be pregnant?

When?: There are many things that can delay your period but if it has started and stopped it is unlikely that you are pregnant now. It is possible that you had a miscarriage but doesn't sound likely from what you have said.

Is it normal to feel PMS symptoms during early pregnancy. I'am three days late with slight PMS pain with white cm, but no menstruation....Thks!

Possibly!: Many women experience slight cramping, bloating, and pms symptoms around the time of their period, even when they are pregnant. However obviously these symptoms can also indicate that your period is around the corner. The best way to know is to test. If your period has not started and your tests are negative in 2 weeks, you can call your doctor for a blood test.

I'm perimenopausal and I take nothing for it. So why do my PMS symptoms last for what seems like three weeks prior to my next period? Could I have pcos

I'm perimenopausal and I take nothing for it. So why do my PMS symptoms last for what seems like three weeks prior to my next period? Could I have pcos

Change (in hormones): Premenopause is associated with variation in the frequency and regularity of ovulation--and therefore of hormone release. Pcos at your age is very unlikely. Hormone supression could be helpful, if rx is needed.

Cough, nose congestion, fatigue, appetite, moodiness, breats are bigger, three days till period. Could I be pregnant? No PMS symptoms yet.

Possible: But pregnancy symptoms aren't usually present until you actually miss your period. Take a home pregnancy test if you miss your period. Take care.
