My last period was July 5, I had implementation spotting 2 days July 23/24th. High cervix and temps. Keeps getting bfn. Super frustrated as I never been this late or missed a period. Dr. Said if i don't get period by cycle day 40 to do another pregnancy test and take this medication to induce a period. I have had all my hormone levels checked all normal.
I don't know if i should take the med as if I'm pregnant it will cause a miscarriage. I was given it to induce only one miss period. Usually people take it if they have miss several. Help?? Anyone experience this and could give me
I do temping daily and use opk
for ovulation. It's clear I ovulated in July.

My doctor said to do anything preg test and if it's negative take the medication. As this medication will cause a miscarriage if I'm pregnant. I've heard women having slow rising hcg and getting positive tests 15 days late with their period.
Just wondering if anyone has experienced this..not aski g for anyone to make the decision for me
Thank you

I see. Your post seemed to ask this though.

*should I take a medication to induce a period.*

Thanks for clarifying. A blood pregnancy test would tell you for sure. It's more accurate in detecting early pregnancy.

Hi, Lulu39.

Thank you for posting.

I'm confused by your post. Your doctor does not know if you are pregnant? If you are not, then it's your call to take the medication. We cannot make this decision for you.
