Late period hi, i recently was late on my period. I was having no symptoms like cramps just back pain. It is consistent every period days before i back pain and intense cramps. I was a few days late and all of a sudden felt a sharp pain in my pelvic area
You will not necessarily have the same symptoms every month prior to your period. This sounds like your regular cycle started and the sharp pain you had was normal uterine cramping that occurs before and during menstruation. If your period lasts longer than usual or has been heavy and has not slowed down then you likely have nothing to worry about. If not, please see your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more

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

I ovulated late this month so i bleed on the day i expected my late period but it was brown nothing like my period could it be implantation bleeding?
Breakthrough: More likely breakthrough bleeding if your period is expected in 4 days, this would be about 4-5 days late for 'implantation' if you're fairly certain of when the next period is due. In my clinical experience implantation bleeding is inconsistent, unpredictable, and mostly doesn't happen at all - even though it's all the rage on the blogs. ...Read more

Can urosepsis make your period late? I got out hospital 1 month ago which was the first day of my period. I am now a day late, also had thrush
Yes any illnesses: can alter enough of your cycle to throw it out of schedule. It will probably take a few days to weeks to reset your cycle. If you are late for more than a couple of weeks, I would check a urine pregnancy test to be sure, and if that is negative and you are still late, check a second one 1 week later. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
