Thanks for your query.

I have gone through your history in detail. Accordingly your last Period was on December 13th and you next period is due date around 10-12th January (if the previous cycle are regular). Ovulation occurs approx 14 days before the due date of next period and in your case this could be around 28-30th of December.

As you involved in sexual intercourse (which I assume was not protected) on 24th December and the 1st January which can be classified as unsafe / fertile period, there are high chance of being pregnant.

Early pregnancy test may get negative. Therefore you may wait for upcoming period and if they don't occur in the next 7 days then you may repeat the pregnancy test (urine home test or blood test for B-hcg) to exclude/confirm pregnancy.

Other reasons such as hormonal imbalance, irregular eating habit, stress/anxiety, ovarian cyst, thyroid problem, psychological factors, over weight or extreme loss (You lost 8 lbs), etc., that can be considered here if pregnancy is ruled out.

In the mean time,you do following things:
1)Avoid stress by yoga/deep breathing regularly
2)Take healthy diet with vitamin & protein supplements
3)Drink plenty of fluids/water and eat leafy vegetables
4)Take certain medication like Prime XXXXXXX capsule and wear tight breast support to get relief of breast discomfort.
6)Maintain personal hygiene and need proper sleeping.

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

Wish your good health.

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS
