Trying to conceive, but missed period for 2 mos. Too much stress! How do I relax?

Easier said than don. Positive stress enables us to make good decisions and adhere to deadlines. Negative stress causes an increase in Epinephrine as a response and is not beneficial. Focus on having fun with hobbies, volunteerism, and even with sex as "deadlines" in this case are counterproductive to conception.

How late after a missed period should I worry, I am trying to conceive. Usually my cycle is 21 days and I'm currently on day 31, with all negative t?

Not sure. With 21 day cycles, they are a little on the short side, and you may not be ovulating on a regular basis. Consider using an ovulation detection kit and if it shows that you are not ovulating, give your gyn a call and discuss this with them. If so, you may benefit from some low dose oral fertility medications. Hope this helps. Good luck. Read more...

Is having menstural like cramps on and off normal in early stages of preg? Missed period trying to conceive. Cramps here and there but no period..

Hard to know. Cramping is very common in early pregnancy and has no specific meaning. It does not mean you will have a miscarriage or other problem in pregnancy. We recommend just no vigorous exercise but otherwise going about normal activity. Often this is just bowel pain from dramatic increases in Progesterone hormone in pregnancy; this despite the feeling similar to menstrual cramps. Good luck. Read more...
