Hello Anonymous,

Pregnancy would be likely if you had unprotected intercourse since your last period in April. If so, then take a home pregnancy test. Test in the morning and use the first urine when you wake up.

If you have not had unprotected intercourse, consult your physician to find out why your period is late and why you are having headaches, back pain and feeling uncomfortable when bending or leaning forward.

Please keep us updated,
Maryann

Hello my period has been late for 3 months now it will vary from being 10-17 days late I usually take about 3 pregnancy test during those days I'm late and they are all always negative and then I end up getting my period like I normally do. Now this month im already 2 days late. Is there a chance I may be pregnant?

Hi Anon!

Sounds like you are irregular. If you have been having unprotected sex then of course pregnancy is possible but if you are not, talk to your doctor about why your cycle is no longer regular.

Best,
Susan

Hello Anonymous,

Possibly. Repeat the test one more time. For the most accurate result, test in the morning and use the first urine of the day.

It would be a good idea to consult your gynecologist, who can order a blood pregnancy test.

Last month's in August my period was 12 days late. In that 12 days I took 4 pregnancy tests, all which were negative. When I started my period it was my normal flow, not spotting or light at all. Now it's October and I haven't had a period in 35 days. My cycle is usually every 29 days. Could I be pregnant, or should I go to my ob?

Hello Anonymous,

If you have had unprotected intercourse since you last period, take a pregnancy test now. For the most accurate result, test in the morning using the first urine of the day.

If you are in your 40s or are approaching your 50s, an irregular menstrual cycle could be a sign of early perimenopause.

Depending on the pregnancy test result, consider talking with your gynecologist/obstetrician.

Hey, I need some help! SOO I had the Mirena IUD put in last year and got it taken out in June. I haven't been on any birth control since then and I've been taking care of myself. My boyfriend and I aren't stressing on having a baby but we would like one. I haven't put a whole lot of thought into it because my tests come back negitive. But for the past month I have been to the doctors because I can't hold my pee, I'm extremely tired, and I keep getting migraines (they last all day!). He tests me for infections and says I might have one and keeps sending me home with antibiotics but it's not getting better. In August my period was 1 1/2 weeks late. It's September and I'm 3 days late so far- we will see how much longer! But all my tests are negitive. Is there any way that I can give false pregnancy tests and maybe actually be pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Take a home pregnancy test only if you do not get a period at all this month. For the most accurate result, buy a name brand product, check the expiration date, and test in the morning using the first urine of the day.

If you had a period in August, then you were not pregnant. There is a chance for pregnancy if you had unprotected intercourse since then.

Regards,
Maryann
