Hi, thanks for your query. I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Some women experience delay in periods in some of their cycles. The same is happening with you. This may be due Change in work pattern, excess exercise, changes in life style, stressful events in life etc. It is normal to have delayed periods occasionally. Hence, no need to worry about it.

2) Since you are already experiencing cramps you are likely to get period in about 2 days. 

3) Though it is early to get urine pregnancy test positive, I suggest you repeat pregnancy test after 4 days if you do not get periods. If you are still doubtful about pregnancy, you can get a test called serum beta hCG. This is confirmatory for pregnancy if you wish to be very sure.

4) You mentioned about a lump near cervix, I wish to know if it was diagnosed by a gynecologist after examination because, cervix cannot be visualized with bare eyes, it can only be seen by XXXXXXX examination.

I recommend you get it examined by gynecologist to decide type of cyst and if biopsy or excision of the lump is necessary to know nature of cyst. It is unlikely to be cancer as you are young and cancer is unlikely in your age group.

I hope I answered your query. Get back to me for any doubts.
Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

I dont usually wear tampons but wore one yesterday. When I took it out last last I felt a dull pain when urinating. This morning I went to urinate and felt the same pain. There is no urge to urininate any more than normal or a feeling of not emptying my bladder. Could this be the beginning stages of a UTI or problems from the tampon. I dont find them to be very easy to come out once they're in. My cervix sits very far back.

hi, my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex back in august. Im still bleeding every month but i dont have clots or cramps and i used to have horrible cramps. I've gained 13lbs but i really don't look pregnant and everyday i feel flutters in my lower abdomen but im not sure if it's just my nerves twiching, my feet swell,i get leg cramps, and sometimes pain in my lower abdomen there are also times when my cervix hurts a little, and i have tons of vaginal discharge.I have taken numerous hpt's all negative and i've been to the doctor's twice once for a urine test and once for a blood pg test when i would have been 8weeks all negative i asked for an ultrasound but was told i could not have one since my results were negative. i do not have health insurance so i have to pay for my doctor's vists out of pocket. Im a little hesitant about having another blood test since the first was negative and it costs me $150. i would currently be 23 weeks if i am pregnant. i have been taking prenatal vitamins just in case. I would be grateful for any advice
