Question: on XXXXXXX 29th I had surgery for an ectopic pregnancy at which I didn't even know I was pregnant because I still had my monthly period on time same length with no difference in flows. I bleed for 3 days after procedure was done then 7 days later had my period on time normal flow, I track my menstrual cycles. Well this month my menstrual was due this Tuesday Aug. 5th and I have yet to have it.The first day of my last period was July 10th. I took a pregnancy test last night and negative. Trying to figure out whats going on.

Brief Answer:
Delayed periods

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. After pregnancy whther it's abortion or ectopic pregnancy the body takes some time to get periods normally.

2. This is because there are few hormones in the body which appear during pregnancy but disappear slowly.

3. Therefore since you had ectopic pregnancy only last month it will take another 2 months to get regular periods.

4. So its not a problem and dont worry about it. Wait for 2 months.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Regards

Thats what I am not understanding, I had regular periods up until the procedure and afterwards. When I asked my doctor why didn't it test positive on at home pregnancy test she said I most likely didn't produce enough of the hormone to receive a positive result. I have been having normal periods up until this point. Even had my period last month. So its confusing and worrying me because we are ttc and I don't want to risk losing the only tube I have left possibly going through what I just went through again.

Wait

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This is unlikely to be pregnancy. This is just due to hormonal changes associated with pregnancy.

Body needs to adjust. So please wait with patience.

I was mus-diagnosed with PCOS and was given glucophage and inofolic acid. I ve since gained weight and my skin has become even worse. I was on 500mg and then increase to 1000mg and then i went to my original gynae who then told me to stop taking it as my insulin levels were normal and there was no need for the other gynae to put me on those meds. i m now on Clomid as i m TTC but i have endometriosis and low progesterone. Will this help?

Hello, My husband and I have been TTC for almost 2 years now on our own (we said we would get doctor help with it once we passed the 2 year mark in 2 months). My AF is normally very regular and I have been using home ovulation tests to pin point my peak fertility . Recently I have lost my medical insurance coverage and I am waiting to be put on my husband s. By problem is... I am 2 weeks late on my period and I have taken 5 hpt that all turned out negative. I have been having nausea, stomach aches, fatigue , occasional strong sense of smell, food aversions and cravings, and frequent urination . I did go to the ER 2 weeks ago for severe nausea, migraine, and slight dehydration . They ended up sending me home with some anti-nausea meds and said I had just had headache. They did do a urine pregnancy test and it came back negative, but that was 5 days before my missed period. They also did a CAT scan but didn t see anything. I really want to know if I m pregnant or not, but I am still waiting on my husband s job to cover me under his insurance so I can t really go into the doctor for a blood test. What do you think? ---Amanda
