Hello and welcome,
Your doctor is being cautious.
If there is a delayed pregnancy
meaning that ovulation occured late and so the tests are negative and even the baby is not seen on ultrasound
. So the doctor wants to wait for a few more days just to be sure.
Waiting for one more month will not do any harm. And if in case there is a pregnancy then it will have a chance to continue.
However if you are in a hurry you can take natural micronised progesterone
twice daily for 7 days and then stop for the next 7 days. It will help if there is a pregnancy and if there no pregnancy periods may come after stopping it.
So discuss this option with your doctor.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
