Question: I had protected sex on XXXXXXX 22 and 23. I got my period on July 6th as expected, it was a regular cycle and I have not had sex since. I've taken 3 pregnancy tests between XXXXXXX 24th and July 16th and have all come out negative yet for some reason I am worried. My question is should I be worried if for some reason I do not get my period is August even though I have not been active since?

Brief Answer:
NO REASON TO SUSPECT PREGNANCY

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
No, there is no cause for concern in your case.
Firstly, there is no reason for you not to have a period in August.
You already had one after the sex ( which also was not unprotected ) sot here is no question of a pregnancy.
If you had conceived on the 22nd and 23rd of XXXXXXX you would not have had a period in July.
So please stop worrying.
Even if you skip a period in August for other reasons ( stress, anxiety , exercise, weight changes, etc ) there is no reason to suspect a pregnancy if you have not had sex since XXXXXXX
Take care.
Please feel free to discuss further.

i have suffered with telogem effluviam which is hair shedding. i believe that it's been through stress related issues. the stress has decreased and the hair is starting to grow back. however i now have a tooth infection and have been prescribed anitbiotics amoxicillin and co-codomaol pain relief. i am natrually concerned that these drugs plus the infection might cause further hair loss. can you please put my mind at rest. maybe i am being over anxious because this has been a very traumatic time for me.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
