Me and my boyfriend came close for three days in December 25, 26, and 27 after my periods which got over in December 20. We did not intercourse but our physical organs did touched and he ejaculated but not in me. I was suppose to get periods on January 14 but it has not started yet.

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.

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
