Hi,

Delay in periods is not related to your urinary tract infection.

If you have had unprotected sexual intercourse in the last month, then it is possible that you may be pregnant. It is advisable to get a urine pregnancy test done.

I m an 18 year old girl, I have a boyfriend and we have sex regularly however we always use protection. My period is now 1 week late which is odd because my period is never late, it s usually very precise. I took a pregnancy test the other day just in case and it showed up as negative, if I m not pregnant.. Why is my period still not here? I don t have any cramps or anything indicating it s starting soon. I m getting very worried that something is wrong with me.

During intercourse with my boyfriend at the beginning of this month the condom broke although the majority of the ejaculation remained contained. I ve been under enormous stress at home (my mother is an alcoholic with excessive brain damage and severe depression) and I am 2 weeks late for my period now. I took 2 pregnancy tests yesterday which both said negative but I remain completely terrified. Abortion is illegal in the country I reside and my dad would kill me if I was ever pregnant before marriage. Is it possible I m just late because of stress or am I right to be concerned? It s not an option for me to keep a child given the circumstances and also due to medication I have previously taken for acne- would cause birth defects for up to another year.

Hi. I'm a male and have pain in my urethra near the tip of the penis. Had unprotected sex a week ago. Have seen a doctor and they did a urine test since there was almost insignificant discharge. I was told I have a bacterial infection and have been given the following medicines: VDM-KIT and Augmentine 625mg one tab twice a day for 5 days. Is this correct? How long can expect the symptoms to disappear and get back to normal? James
