Not sure: You might want to try a different test if you are not sure. The other option would we to see your MD and check a blood test. It may just be that you had a delay in ovulation, and that you period may come a little later than usual. If you haven't started in a week and you test is negative, you may want to check with your MD. ...Read more

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

Why is my period always 3 to 5 days late? I mean, my period was supposed to start april 11, but i went walking on april 10 and my period didn't come.

This is normal: At 13 yrs of age, your ovulation is still immature till around 20. Some women ovulate a little later. Normal cycles are considered between 25-35 days. So don't worry it is normal. ...Read more

I had HPV shot, it made my period a week late. Now its been a week and my period is still on I've never had a late period and it normally lasts 3 days?

I had HPV shot, it made my period a week late. Now its been a week and my period is still on I've never had a late period and it normally lasts 3 days?

No relation: The hpv vaccine, (gardisil and cervarix), do not affect your period. You are having dysfunctional uterine bleeding for another reason. At your age, this is not typically anything bad. That being said, if your abnormal bleeding persists, call your gyn and make an appointment to be evaluated. Best of luck. ...Read more

My cervix was open for about 3 days before i got my late period, and my period ended after about 4 days and my cervix isn't closed yet. Why is this?

My cervix was open for about 3 days before i got my late period, and my period ended after about 4 days and my cervix isn't closed yet. Why is this?

No correlation: Dilation of the cervical is only a relevant factor in pregnancy (e.g. Imminence and completeness of pregnancy loss in early gestation and, of course, labor in later pregnancy). If anything, the timing of one's bleeding/cycle has more to do with the endometrial lining than anything else. ...Read more

I have rarely had a late period. Since my lap chole 3 weeks ago my period is at current 2 days late with no signs of it. Should I be concerned?

I have rarely had a late period. Since my lap chole 3 weeks ago my period is at current 2 days late with no signs of it. Should I be concerned?

Not likely: So many factors go into controlling your cycle. Having your lap chole and a 2 day late period are likely just coincidence and not causally related. If you period continues to be late, check with your obgyn to discuss options. ...Read more

Is it implantation bleeding? 3 days late period w/ lightpink to red color 1-2 pads from 4/8-4/12 or is it my period been always heavy but it's differe

I'd ignore it: Internet gossip vastly over-emphasizes the idea of 'implantation bleeding.' implantation always happens 6-7 days after fertilization, so that's the only time you could see it. ...Read more

Iam 8 days late period 3 home negative test no pregnancy symptoms but  craving a lot , my period is irregular  what should I do need help?

You do not need help: No. You do not need help. If your pregnancy tests were done more than 14 days after a possible conception and after a missed period you are not pregnant. You have irregular cycles. You already know this. If you want to not have irregular cycles then you go on prescription medication to regulate them. Your Family Doctor can help you with this. ...Read more

Been on Synthroid (thyroxine) 100mcg for 1 week, and am now 3 days late for my period. I got a neg pregnant test - can starting Synthroid (thyroxine) cause a late period?

Been on Synthroid (thyroxine) 100mcg for 1 week, and am now 3 days late for my period. I got a neg pregnant test - can starting Synthroid (thyroxine) cause a late period?

Possibly: Thyroid problems (over- or under active thyroid) can cause irregular periods. You should get a blood test to see if your thyroid is in balance. Also could be abnormal pregnancy--which can be serious. If you don't want to be pregnant, see your doctor to check it out--and discuss birth control/contraception. ...Read more

Not pregnant: You are having periods. You did not have sperm inside of the vagina. You cannot possibly be pregnant. Why would you let your brain get to the point you are not thinking clearly? You are having an irregular period. If you are truly worried about it then you go to the doctor. You are not pregnant. Take that off the list of causes of your symptoms. ...Read more

You : You can get pregnant at any point during your cycle, even though it is much less common to get pregnant during menstruation. Even though pregnancy is the number 1 reason for a missed period, other things can cause an irregular cycle also such as stress, poor diet, lots of exercise and hormone imbalance. Even though most home pregnancy tests are 97% accurate a week or 2 after your missed period, if you are still worried, you may want to have your doctor test you. Even if your test comes out negative at the doctor's office, you can discuss your missed period with them and also various methods of birth control that will work for you. ...Read more
