Period s/p Nuvaring: I see you have a history of irregular periods.

Your cycles also depend on the functioning of your thyroid. Talk with your doctor to make sure all of that is taken care of. ...Read more

Some women will get monthly cycles even while breastfeeding. ...Read more

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

However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

I am now supposed to get my period on halloween ! what do I do about tampons ?

First time???: When you first start using tampons you may find it easier to insert a “slim” tampon with a smooth plastic applicator that has a rounded tip. Recommend that you avoid super tampons with cardboard applicators when you first start. There are may u tube videos that provide instruction on proper tampon insertion.

A urine pregnancy test is accurate if done correctly, after a missed period, or 3 wks after sex. ...Read more
