    What causes delayed menstruation and negative pregnancy test?

Posted on Tue, 1 Aug 2017 in General Health
Hi doctor XXXXXXX I hope you are well. Doctor, I was using contrapectoves but I have not got my period. I am always on time 27/28 day cycle. Today is the 30th day. Could I be pregnant? I did a pregnancy test it came negative. Or could it be just hormones all over the place that's why I didn't get my periods. After my delivery I was getting my periods on time every 28 days and also he's not breastfed,. I tried a lot but he just doesn't want he screams. I'm just thinking what if I'm pregnant again? Is it too early to take a test now?

Brief Answer:
Repeat test after a week

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear yes it can be an early pregnancy and too early to test.
Can you tell me which contraceptive you have been taking so far?
Just wait for another week and repeat the test to see for pregnancy otherwise you will need progesterone withdrawal of periods
Take care

Ok cool il wait for a week and see. WhAtever is Allah (god) wish. Thanks doctor for always giving a quick response and always being there. Uv been a great help from the start. Although in my first pregnancy i found out two days from my missed period. But i reckon because iv had a baby it could show later this time around

What could be the other cause of not getting a period? Would it be hormonal imbalance?
Answered by Dr. Manisha Jain 28 hours later
Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry generally

Detailed Answer:
You are most welcome dear
Most common cause is post delivery there is disturbed hormone balance but it can be thyroid problems, weight gain issues and stress
So in general all are petty issues except thyroid
But since you are taking thyroxine and also have normal thyroid levels so just wait for a week and let's see.
All the best
