User :   My menstual cycle in May was on the 28th. I was "suppose" to get my period on June 24th give or take a few days but I still haven't gotten it and today the 4th will be 39 days. I have always had my cycle start once a month around 28 days. My boyfriend came into town on June 23rd and we had unprotected sex every day sometimes more than once in a day until he had to leave on the 29th, but he didn't ejaculate in me at all. There were times when he would hold off and not ejaculate until the next day when we had sex again other times the first time and we would have sex again later (no set pattern except it was more than once a day sometimes more than that when he would hold off. Today the 4th will make it 39 days since the start of my last menstrual cycle and I have definitly always had a menstral cycle start every month. I took a pregnancy test Friday the 2nd of July and it was negative... I know you can't have your period and be pregnate that conception shuts down that process... but is it possible that conception occured on the night before I should have started and it would stop my period that fast? Is it possible that I am pregnate even though the test was negative on Friday - it was a first response test... I'm confused because if my period is in fact not coming because I'm pregnate wouldn't the hormon level be great enough to show up on the first response test. How likely is it I am pregnate? Stress hasn't stopped my period in the past and I'm not feeling all that stressed out about the possiblilty of being pregnate or not pregnate - My boyfriend and I are very serious and he knows I'm late and is perfectly fine with the idea of me being pregnate not verses later. I want to add that I am 39 years old so I know it is possible more difficult to get pregnate as I get older so it seems unlikely that I would get pregnate from pre-ejaculate, but I know it
User :   isn't impossible. Lastly when should I retake the pregnancy test - when is it most likely to pick up that I am pregnate at this point giving the time frame I've given.
Thank you
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr. Mazumdar
User :   Hi
Doctor :   I need some time to read the query
User :   ok
Doctor :   I shall ask you to consider a redo of Urine pregnancy test
Doctor :   now
Doctor :   If it is negative, you just have to wait for periods
User :   ok I will do that...
Doctor :   If you are still confused getting a Serum Beta HCG test done at a local lab
Doctor :   is a next option
User :   I have been sick for that last few days - on my last doctors appointment the monday before he arrived I had a slight temperature... Could this have been due to ovulation? Late though it seems?
User :   When I said sick I mean fever and soar throat cough not vomiting
Doctor :   What were your symptoms
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Did you take few medications
User :   only cough drops but I did start a new anti-depressant effexor a couple months ago - full strengh as of May
User :   My other anti-depressant was wellbutrin and I've been on that for over 10 years
Doctor :   Ok I just think now, it is the sickness that could have delayed the period
Doctor :   Do the test , if negative wait for the periods is my call
User :   ok I will wait a little longer then and do the other test in the package maybe next Friday if my period doesn't come... What do you think? Is it possible for a period to be stopped like that so quickly since I was suppose to start the following day or two if I did get pregnate - I couldn't find anything online concerning this.
User :   ok do the test now :)
Doctor :   You may do it tomorrow, considering the 72 hour thereotically
Doctor :   gap*
User :   ok - what about the quickness between possible conception and your period stopping
Doctor :   It cannot be that way
Doctor :   Not so quick
User :   It did seem unlikely to me. Thank you for your help
Doctor :   Any other questions?
User :   Just one... not related to the pregnancy but to being sick
