I am 40 years old. I am remarried after 10 years of gap and had no child from first marriage but was pregnat for 3 months and had a self abortion. this time on the advice of my sister i have started taking Folvite to get pregnant. My cycle has been 30 days complete, does this mean that I am pregnant

Hi,, I was 7 days above by my acutal date but when i did a home pregngancy test twice it was both times negative. I met a gynae and she has given me MOdus 10 mg to be taken twice a day and then wait for the periods to come. today is the fifth day. I just want to know that why have my periods delayed when the pregnancy test is negative and will my periods return after this medicine or not. I am 40 plus and never ever in my whole life have I ever had late periods. they were always 5-7 days before. Please advise if there is anything to worry and will i conceive or not..

Hi Coolice,
Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. I would wait a few more days to see if you get your period. Symptoms of pregnancy almost mimic pre-menstrual symptoms, but taking a pregnancy test when you are about 7 days late for your period would help answer your question rather than waiting for symptoms as each individual experiences pregnancy in different ways.

Can you keep us posted on your results?

Good luck,

Hi.. thanks for the reply. I will def try to wait for 4 more days but I am 2 days late from my periods. but just FYI. I have never been late in my periods throughout my life they are always 4-5 days before and even as early as 7-10 days. but will wait for another 3 days

I am not sure as it has just been 2 months since my marrige but usually my periods have a cycle of 23-25 days but this is the first time so late. and I have not even done a home pregnancy test and do not even know the signs of getting pregnant. Pleas advice as to what r the signs or changes in the first month.
