Patience: A woman with regular periods can wait until her period comes. Only if her normal, regular period doesn't come does she need to check a pregnancy test. If her normal, regular period occurs at the expected time, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Back to School: Wow. Perhaps you are in need of a lesson in how your body works. Once the HCG hormone level decreases then your ovaries can reset and begin ovulation for the next cycle.

Sperm take one to five days to reach this egg. ...Read more

Missed miscarriage in January this year, period 4 weeks after but am now 11 days late and negative pregnancy tests? Is this normal?

Re do test: It would be prudent to re do the test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
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.

Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, I would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more

Chemical pregnancy with 4th wk miscarriage. Period supposed 2 be due today.Since 2 days am spotting & bled a little 1 day. My BBT rose. Is it period?

Most likely: If it has been at least 3 weeks after your miscarriage, then it is certainly possible that this could be a period. The rise in basal body temperature, indicates to me that you likely ovulated and if you did not have that egg fertilized, we would be right to expect a period ...Read more

Is this a miscarriage or still a pregnancy? What is wrong with me? Hello there, my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant since september without any luck. This month when I got my period it was very unusual, it was a day late and when it came it

Is this a miscarriage or still a pregnancy? What is wrong with me? Hello there, my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant since september without any luck. This month when I got my period it was very unusual, it was a day late and when it came it

Yes : Yes you could have been pregnant. One study showed that about 50% of women conceive each month but just have very early miscarriages. Sometimes it is perceived as just a late period. This is normal since we know that in humans it is common to make embryos that are not normal enough to continue. It is always a good idea to check a home pregnancy test whenever you have a period which is not normal for you. Rarely you can have an abnormal pregnancy which can cause serious problems if not followed closely. If your test comes back negative, there will be no way to know if you were pregnant last month or not. You have been trying for 3 or four months now. If you are less than 36, you can try up to 12 months before it is time to see a fertility specialist. ...Read more

Period type miscarriage a month nd 2 weeks trying to get pregnant no period until spotting with clear bloody discharge could this be pregnancy?

Doubtful: I have to admit your presentation is not that clear with the amount of info presented. First off, I would refrain from trying to get pregnant until you get your periods back on regular track for at least 2-3 months. That way you can "schedule" your pregnancy. When your periods are not back on schedule, you will be at the mercy of guess of what's going on. The only way to know — pregnancy test now. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage a little more than 5weeks ago, didn't get my period but tested positive on a pregnancy test this morning how far along am i?

Good Question: First of all you need to see your doctor and find out what is going on. It is possible the miscarriage did not finish, or you could have an ectopic pregnancy and not a miscarriage. Sometimes a miscarriage also leads to a rare form of pregnancy induced cancer. So, assuming you did not follow your pregnancy hormones down to zero before, this may not be a new pregnancy. ...Read more
