FOLLOW THE ADVICE.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

In this circumstance, I suggest you to take Norethisterone pill (like Primolut-N etc) twice daily for 5 days or up to XXXXXXX day to AVOID unpredictable period.

You will get a withdrawal bleeding like period within 3 to 5 days after stopping those pill. Your next cycle may be delayed for 1 to 2 weeks due to hormonal imbalance. It is quite physiological.

Hope, this information is quite helpful to you. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.

Regards,
Dr Soumen

I always have periods every 36-40 days. Is there any way where I can reduce the gap without the usage of contraceptives. I can see other gals getting their periods every 28-30 days.I am worried why mine is not the same.I m married for 6 months , we are not planning for a baby now but I dont want to go for contraceptives since i feel its harmful.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for follow up query.

If you are getting your regular period every 36-40 days, it may be physiological. However, we need to rule out some underlying causes like hormonal imbalance, PCOD (Most Common), mental stress, high prolactin level, over weight, pelvic infection, thyroid disturbance etc.

In that case, one pelvic ultrasound scan and complete hormone test (like LH/ FSH, Estrogen, serum Prolactin, Thyroid, DHEAS etc) will be worthwhile to rule out the underlying cause and confirm the diagnosis. You must consult with your local GYNECOLOGIST regarding this.

Hormonal pill is the MAINSTAY of treatment. Some modification of life style can change or reduce your duration of cycle.

You would take healthy diet (LOW CARBOHYDRATE) with more green vegetables, drink more water, keep bowel habit regular, avoid mental stress by meditation or yoga, control body weight by regular physical exercise and maintain your genital hygiene properly. IRON-FOLIC acid supplement is also required.

Hope, I have answered your query. Kindly, close the discussion.

All the best and good luck.

Dr Soumen

I had unprotected sex on june 9th. and again on june 12th with the same guy. We are both clear of std's, but I have been pregnant before with twins and miscarried. When I was supposed to get my period (june 19th) there was some spotting and some pink discharge, as well as some burning during urination. I have had a horrible migraine for 3 days now, and I was nauseous all day today when I was trying to bake, but I also just had surgery on my jaw, and thought that could be the trigger of my nauseousness. Do you think I am pregnant?

I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend on May 18, '13 (May 10 - start of my period) which is may last day of regular menstruation. No ejaculation happened inside me and my bf confirmed that. I'm getting paranoid cause I'm not yet ready to get pregnant so i researched some contraceptives and Nordette is the only available here in our country. So I took nordette 21(4 pills) and another 4 pills after 12 hrs, within 72 hrs after our intercourse. After 4-5 days (May 24), I got a withdrawal bleeding which happened for 4 days. I haven't got my period yet (June 9 or 10, '13) and I'm two weeks delay now. I haven't take a PT yet. Is there a chance that I'm pregnant? How long does Nordette can delay a period? Please reply to my question 'coz it will really help me to stay calm and not to worry. Thank you.
