Some thoughts...: 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 the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more

My period is 5 days late but I do not feel any pregnancy symptoms. I took Plan B in april and it is now july. Can the plan b be the reason for delay?

No: Periods may be regular, and unlike trains, don't arrive on time. It's a very complicated process. Unless you're taking bcp's, you just never know!
In general, when you take Plan B, the next period usually arrives on time. When the next ones come is anyone's guess.
Good luck ...Read more

Furadantoin: Not sure whether you are pregnant or having side-effects of drug. There has been no evidence in animals that this should affect your fetus. There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women.

Can amoxocilllin delay your period? I'm on bc pills and 5 days late. Also very stressed lately. Took pregnancy test and it was negative.

Stress can: While the Amoxicillin can interfere with the effectiveness of the hormones in your birth control (that is why you always use a backup method of contraception if on antibiotics and the pill), it should not delay the onset of your menses. However, the stress you talk about certainly could have an effect enough to delay your cycle. ...Read more

Can taking plan B delay my period? Can I start my new BC pack even if my period is delayed and got a negative pregnancy test? I'm 2 days late today.

Yes: Taking plan b could potentially delay menses. If menses is about to start it would be best to restart birth control pills after menses starts. Start taking pills on first Sunday after bleeding. Use condoms for the first month while birth control becomes effective. If menses does not start after 3-4 more days take another pregnancy test and see a obgyn ...Read more

Pregnyl is used to assist in ovulation and does not delay the onset of menses.For reassurance, please get quantitative hcg and if negative, see a gynecologist for evaluation and management. Good luck. ...Read more
