Thanks for writing to us. I have gone through your history in details.

According to your height & weight, it seems to me that you have grade 1 obesity.

Here I can explain your query as follows:

Pregnancy depends on proper timing of ovulation and unprotected sex. According to your expected period due date (as on 14 January), you probably ovulated around 31 December and fertile days were 29 Dec to 2 January. You were involved in sexual activity for 3 consecutive days, closed to fertile days. As your boyfriend did not intercourse or ejaculate inside vagina, the chances of pregnancy is almost nil (by touching physical organs only).

Possible reasons for delayed period are ovarian cyst, stress/ anxiety, hormonal imbalance, irregular eating habit, hypothyroidism (you take medicine for that), psychological factors, overweight (you already have) or extreme weight loss etc.

The possibilities can be narrowed by means of tests such as Ultrasound (USG) lower abdomen, LH / FSH level, blood estrogen & progesterone levels, Lipid profile and blood sugar (FBS & PPBS).

Therefore, you consult with a gynecologist who can help you in guide through the tests after a physical examination and suggest proper medication.

The following measures may be helpful:

1) Try to Avoid stress by yoga/deep breathing regularly (20-30 times).
2) Take healthy diet with avoidance of high calorie diet/ fatty foodstuff.
3) Drink plenty of fluids/water and eat leafy vegetables & fresh fruits.
4) Continue regular physical exercise and weight reduction is the mainstay of treatment.
5) Maintain personal hygiene and continue taking thyroid tabs.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help.

Wish your good health & practice safe sex in future.

Dr Soumen.
