Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Prolactin disorder?: This medication is generally given for those with a small benign brain tumor called a Prolactinoma. Usually these patients find the tumor when they start missing their periods and their Prolactin blood tests come out very high. I would clarify with the prescribing doctor why you were given this medication to determine how this related to your lack of periods. ...Read more

Check!: You need to check a pregnancy test. Even the dollar store has urine pregnancy tests that are accurate. You can also go to planned parenthood or other free/low cost clinics if you don't have a regular doctor or insurance. Until you find out, act like you're pregnant - in other words, avoid alcohol, smoking, etc. Good luck. ...Read more

Its three days since I missed my period and I took a test today came out negative. Should I take another one or is it something else?

Its three days since I missed my period and I took a test today came out negative. Should I take another one or is it something else?

Not yet: The pregnancy tests currently available over the counter are very reliable. If you have done one and it is negative - then you are not pregnant, or you have conceived less than 10 days ago and the test will eventually become positive. You could wait at least 3 or 4 days to allow time for the pregnancy hormone to reach a detectable level before repeating the test. ...Read more

Is it to soon for me to take a test I missed my period on April 6th and still don't have one...or should I wait three months like before?

Is it to soon for me to take a test I missed my period on April 6th and still don't have one...or should I wait three months like before?

Can do preg. Test: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

I was using folic acid for a month and at the same time I make love with my boyfriend without protection. Now I missed my period with three days?

Might be pregnant: Any time you make love without protection you might become pregnant (esp. Mid-cycle). Your period being late might be due to pregnancy but is not a sure sign; late periods can be due to other things as well. There is a very simple way to find out- take an over-the-counter pregnancy urine test! ...Read more

I missed my period. For three months and had a period for three weeks after that. Now I have a death smell and have a bad back ache?

See a doctor: When a patient says they have a 'death smell' then that's time to see a physician and have a thorough exam. Be sure to mention the irregularities in your menstrual cycle as well. Sometimes can be due to hormone imbalance, weight (too thin/heavy), or thyroid. Regardless, get yourself to a clinic for an exam right away. ...Read more

I had my tubes cut tied an burnt I missed my period for three months an the one I had was for three day I cry alot an very sleepy could I be pregnet?

Probably not, but: It sounds like a good idea to try to see a doctor for a full exam. You need to discover why your period is so off schedule and correct any problems they find. Also - lots of crying and feeling very sleepy may mean you'd benefit from a therapist. Someone to talk to may help you w/ depression and even refer for medication if needed. You'll probably sleep better too. Call for a visit ASAP, okay? ...Read more

I missed my period in August. Right before my period I was using Yeast Infect. Medication and had sex. Now I have cramps no period and three neg. Test?

Get evaluation: This could be related to a persistent infection as well. In any case it would be good to get a blood pregnancy test to double check for that. If not, anyway an exam and tests would help to check for infection. It is possible you skipped ovulation that month as well. If persists another possibility is hormonal imbalance. See your GYN provider for check up. ...Read more

I'm on Kariva pill, I miss pills kinda often but never more than three a month. On my 3rd pack now first time no period, test it's negative?

May be okay: You might need to wait a few more days to see if you'll get your cycle. Typically, even missing a few pills on the pack, you'll get a cycle at the end of the month. If there are other issues going on, problems with your thyroid, or pituitary, then the pill cycle might not provoke a menstrual cycle. Kariva is a great pill, I would just keep taking as recommended. ...Read more

I'm a virgin, but I've missed a period. I had amenorrhea for three years before I got it back a year ago. Is this a cause for concern? Or is it normal

Irregular period: There are several reasons to have irregular periods. Mostly due to an imbalance of hormones in your body. When a girl starts her period, the cycle hormones are usually not fully established. It can take about 3-4 years for this to happen. I sounds like you had your first period at least 3 years ago. Therefore, you probably have a hormone imbalance that should be check by a doctor. ...Read more

Please clarify: Hi. After menarche, you went 3 years without periods, if I understand what you're saying. What, then periods resumed, and now you've missed one? Please tell us about why you were amenorrheic for 3 years (if known), what made periods resume (if known), and any other symptoms (male hair growth, breast milk production, headache, etc). It's OK to miss a period; you missed about 36 while amenorrheic! ...Read more

Late period: It's hard to say why it happens, but sometimes we are just late for our period. Even if it's never happened to you before, it could be happening now. Things like medications, stress, travel, changes in your weight, can all cause a late period. If your pregnancy test is negative, repeat it once per week until you get your period, to be safe. If no period for a whole month, I would see your gyn doc. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time.

Can taking emergency pills for three consecutive weekends make your period miss or late. Help please?

Yes but why do that: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days. Clearly you need a better birth control plan. Buy condoms. Avoid unplanned pregnancy. ...Read more

I missed three birth control pills, and took them in one day. I then stopped that pack and started a new pack, period now for 8 days, any info?

Breakthrough bleed: When you missed the 3 pills the lining of the womb has been released and is the cause of the bleeding also known as breakthrough bleeding. Eventually it will stop as long as you remember to take your new pack of pills everyday at the same time each day. By the way, run a pregnancy test to be sure that it is negative if you were sexually active in the previous month. ...Read more
