hi,
welcome to healthcare magic
since you had your periods after the unprotected sex, pregnancy can be rule out.delay may be due to SOME hormonal effecT. JUST WAIT FOR THE NEXT PERIODS.if it happen frequently then you bhave to do a ultra sound scan for the pelvis to find out the cause

Hello! I m 32 years old, female, I delivered my 2 babies Caesarian Section (now they are 4 yrs old and 2 yrs old). A month after I gave birth with my second child, I started taking contraceptive pills , since then my menstrual cycle was going back to normal (28 days). Just last march of this year, I suddenly stopped taking contraceptive pill without even finishing the 28 pills. 5 days after, I experienced bleeding which lasted for 3 days (flow is just like i have my menstrual period ). After that and until now (already 3 months), my menstrual period will occur every after 13-15 days! So I end up having my menstrual period every twice a month! Is this a side effect of stopping taking the pill so sudden? Will my menstrual cycle go back to normal in due time? Please advise.

I fingered a women then masturbated with the same hand. About 3 months later started feeling some groin discomfort and have had it on and off for 7 months. I went to the doctor and he said my lymph nodes aren't swollen and strongly opposed to an hiv test. I'm still paranoid about the whole situation should I be. She was really wet when I fingered her.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
