H and thanks for the query,
the commonest cause of late or missed periods in a woman of reproductive age is pregnancy
. This probability increases especially if the woman has an risky or unprotected sex. Depending on the pregnancy test done and the sample used, false positive could be possible. Doing blood Beta HCG
for pregnancy tests could be the recommended methods. To exclude other causes of the pain or confirm an anovulatory cycle
, an obstetric ultrasound
could be very important to get done. Consult your gynecologist/obstetrician for a reevaluation and management.
thanks and best regards,
