Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Since your periods are overdue by 5 days, you need to test your urine to find out if you are actually pregnant or not. You can do a urine test using the kit available at all the pharmacies.
The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period. Use a morning sample of urine and two lines means a positive test. To confirm the status of your pregnancy, you can get a serum HCG test done which is more specific than a urine test.
The further treatment depends on the status of your pregnancy. You will have consult your gynecologist for further management and appropriate prescription medicines.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Thanks for your reply Doctor.

But I really do not want to get Pregnent now.
Bit scared about the situation and stressed.
Even before testing with the kit, is there any possibility to
get periods now?

Kindly advise.

Thanks.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The treatment needed to bring periods is different if you are pregnant and if you are not. You must check your urine first to see if you are pregnant.
There is no single tablet which will work in both the cases.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

My name is Brenda, 5'7" 180 lbs. I was diagnosed in 2004. Presented with only the left ear affected. Blood Work sent to Mayo Clinic, confirmed Anti Collagen II. In 2006 had some nasal issues from RP nothing since. I have had microscopic hematuria since 1999 ranging from 2+ to 6+, about 20 different urinalysis and never an infection. Occasionally protein 5+. Had a urine cytology in 2006, negative for malignant cells, had a cytology in Feb 2010, negative for malignant cells. Had cytology 3 weeks ago, atypical urothelial. Have had symptoms similar to Interstial Cystitis for 5 to 6 years. Seems to flare at different times. Good for months at a time. Currently in some type of flair. Urinating 15-20 times a day, lots of burning but urinalysis done on Monday just came. back with blood 3+, no infection. Had cystoscope in 2008 looked good no lesions but bladder was slightly inflamed. I have another cystoscope scheduled for July 18th. I am extremely nervous about the Atypical Urothelial cells but have some comfort that I am still here with hematuria for 12 years. Do you think the Atypical Cells could be caused by what appear to be symptoms of Interstial Cystitis, or do you think it is likely I have bladder cancer. I am going insane waiting. Only one urologist is our town of 20,000.00
