Is delay in menstrual bleeding a sign of pregnancy?
Please give details.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Noted your history of having sex with your girlfriend almost a month ago. Now her period is late.
This may be due to pregnancy.
Please give some details:
When was her period expected to come, the date?
Urinary pregnancy tests after 5 days of the missed date can tell whether she is pregnant or not.
Pregnancy can occur if there is unprotected sex on or near days of her ovulation dates which is usually 14 days before the date of expected next period.
This information will help you to decide whether she is pregnant or not.
Please get the correct information and give me feedback so that we can discuss further.
As discussed, Exact dates please- repeat pregnancy test.
Thanks for your feedback.
Okay, I can understand about not sure about the dates. (may be 20 or 23 Feb as you say).
Your information says that your girlfriend has taken i-pill and got the bleeding/periods twice. There can be withdrawal bleeding at around 5-7 days as the effect of the i-pill hormones are withdrawn and hence the body responds by having withdrawal bleeding. This is not called a period. When was that she had 2 nd episode of bleeding- was it on her regular dates?
If the dates were say about 20-23 Feb, minus 14 days means the ovulation would have been 6 to 9 Feb. If the intercourse unprotected and was during this period, that is from 3 to 12 Feb, then only pregnancy is possible. If the i-pill was taken within 72 hours then again having pregnancy is a remote possibility.
Secondly you have told about i-pill. Was it taken within 72 hours of sex?
Please confirm the dates.
Pregnancy test: 2 lines means pregnancy may be present.
Please ask her to repeat the test and read within the time as directed on the package. See that it is not beyond the expiry date. Please ask her to read the instructions fully and follow strictly as the test seen after a particular time may show up as false positive.
To calculate the risk of pregnancy, exact dates are very important.
Please get the correct dates of everything.
Waiting for your feedback.
