Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   hello doctor
User :   i had spoken to some other doctor on this chat online on 27.11.10.It was regarding my menstrual cycle
Doctor :   Let me look at that chat.
Doctor :   Please proceed with your query.
User :   i have still not got my periods.I have taken pregnancy test twice once on 30.11.10 and other on 07.12.10 which is negative.but still i m worried that i have not got my periods
Doctor :   Ok
User :   again i had taken one ipill on 27.11.10
User :   is this normal
Doctor :   Can you confirm if the pill that you took was within 72 hours following the sexual intercourse?
User :   yes within 14 hours of intercourse
Doctor :   Ok
User :   if my pregnancy tests are negative can i still be pregnant
Doctor :   Do you have other symptoms of pregnancy such as nausea, vomiting, back ache, increased urination, breast enlargement/soreness?
User :   actually no breast soreness maybe becauz my periods were due
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Let me brief you.
Doctor :   Delayed periods are caused by multiple factors.
Doctor :   I pills, stress factors are well known factors that are known to cause them.
User :   but my question is at this point of time if my pregnancy tests are negative are there any chances of still getting pregnant
Doctor :   Though there is a remote chance of failure of contraceptive pills, since you don't have any other symptoms, its unlikely that you can be pregnant.
Doctor :   Having said this, yes,
Doctor :   there are chances that urine pregnancy test can be false (especially following a contraceptive pill usage).
Doctor :   But that chance, I think is fairly negligible(based on your symptoms).
Doctor :   This is point is again strengthened by the fact that you have taken two Urine pregnancy test and both are negative.
Doctor :   I expect your periods to normalize.
Doctor :   If they don't occur in the next few days, I would suggest you to consider consulting a gynaecologist for evaluation.
Doctor :   And clinical examination.
Doctor :   The examination and evaluation is for looking for any other factor such as PCOD's.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
Doctor :   Are you there?
