Are your TTC?: If your period is late & you've engaged in unprotected sex, then take a home pregnancy test - they're extremely accurate when you're late. If it's positive, go see your doc. If it's negative & you're not TTC, then go see your doc for contraception (check out www.plannedparenthood.org for options). If it's negative but you're TTC, go see your doc to be sure you're healthy then start prenatal vitami ...Read more

My usual period last for 4 days. But now since 2 mths, I notice light spotting 2 days before period and my period lasts for 2 day only. m not pregnent?

Probably not: Periods can change over time. If you are having periods every 28 days that are normal in terms of duration and flow, its unlikely that you are pregnant. Some women spot before and after their regular period. Its annoying but not abnormal and doesn't mean you are pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more

2 days late for my period can I be pregnant?

Maybe. Maybe not.: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) 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 therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and the test is not needed yet. ...Read more

2 months ago was last unprotected sex, 2 regular period since, now late period? With PMS symptoms. Why is my period late?

2 months ago was last unprotected sex, 2 regular period since, now late period? With PMS symptoms. Why is my period late?

Can't tell w/o exam: Not all protection methods are 100%, so you can't absolutely rule out pregnancy. PMS symptoms are not unique to pre-menstrual effects and could be part of whatever is delaying your period - ovarian irregularity, for example. It's good that you no longer have unprotected sex. That's a very smart move, but now visit a doctor for an exam and do another smart thing. It'll become part of your style! ...Read more

Heavier cycle: Having a heavier cycle is not uncommon due to multiple stressors. The fact that you have had a cycle potential has ruled out the possibility of pregnancy. In the future I would recommend safe sex options with protection such as condoms or consider birth-control options. ...Read more

Break-thru bleeding: This is "break-through bleeding" or "spotting". It's very common and generally not worrisome. It's usually caused by an imbalance in the hormones progesterone and estrogen. It's more common in women using hormonal contraceptives. If it recurs month after month or if other irregularities occur, see your personal gyn professional. ...Read more
