I need some advice, or what's the meaning of this.

Before my expected period. I experience 4 days spotting and then my period didn't come. Its been 9 days delayed and there's no sign of early pregnancy, I also use pregnancy test but its negative.
I have unprotected sex with my boyfriend last month 2 days after my period. I was so confused what's happening to me right now.

Need some advice please?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our advice.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a delicate balance of hormones. Any disruption in that balance will cause irregularities.

For example, with pregnancy, levels of estrogen and progesterone do not decrease, so you do not get a period.

Before you call your physician, take one more pregnancy test. Use a name brand product, check the expiration date, and test using the first urine of the morning.

If you still get a negative result, you need to be evaluated by your doctor. Beside pregnancy, a thyroid gland problem, serious anxiety, or a tumor on the pituitary gland can cause a missed period.
