Posted on Tue, 11 Oct 2016
Question: I had protected sex on 5th of September for the first time using Lubic jelly for lubrication.My periods were due on 12th of this month,i have not got it yet.my period dates in the previous months were as follows:
August 14th
July 20th
May 20th
April 23rd
I cannot remember June's date.
My queries are:
Can lubic rupture or weaken condom?
There was no ejaculation in the condom,just precum.Also checked for breakage.There wasn't any visible,though there was slimy liquid on the surface which probably was the vaginal lubrication mixed with lubic

What signs appear in early pregnancy?

Looking at my period dates due you think i was fertile on the 5th?

Should I take Meprate 10 mg for delayed periods?
I feel no nausea,no breast tenderness,no constipation,no indigestion..nothing of those symptoms that are associated with pregnancy. please advise me what to do.I want to have an active sex life,but as I am not yet married,i do not want to conceive.

Brief Answer:
get a serum beta hcg test done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to HCM,
You should get a serum beta hcgtest done right away to rule out pregnancy conclusively. If the hcg levels are less than 3mIU then you are surely not pregnant and the delay is likely to be stress induced and then you can opt for a progesterone withdrawal to resume your menses by taking meprate 10mg twice a day for 5 days only and not 10 days. the withdrawal bleeding shall start after 5-7 days of taking the last pill.

Detailed Answer:
meprate will not abort but rather further help in continuing pregnancy as its a progesterone and won't harm the foetus at all.
