Period date may alter up to 7 days and it is considered as normal thing. It occurs mostly due to hormonal imbalance & mental stress.

Here, you need to undergo one blood test for beta-hcg & TVS scan to rule out conception at the earliest.

Following test report, you can consult with your gynecologist for next line management. In exclusion of pregnancy, other relevant investigation may be required.

All the best.

Hello, Im a little worried right now. I am 22 years old. My boyfriend and I have been trying to get pregnant since a month ago. I have been active for a whole year now and we have never used protection, only the pulled out method untill a month ago when he started eyaculating inside. I am a week late on my period , no spotting at all, only a few cramps here and there since my period was supposed to be due. I am regular on my cycle (between 27 and 29 days every month since a frist started seing my period 12 years ago). For the last two days i have been experiencing nauseas right after i ate, and also i have been feeling EXTREMELY tired like if i cant carry my own body. Im wondering if i could be pregnant or this is only the result of my imagination. I do want to become a mom. Please Help... =(

Hi, I am a fit, healthy 31 yr old who usually has a regular 28 day cycle period which is normal and lasts for 5-7 days. My husband and i started trying for a baby and tried on the 11th and 17th day of cycle.

I am a 25 year old female with very irregular periods. My last period was March 23-28 of this year (Four weeks ago). I have already successfully delivered a child in 2011, but did not get a positive result until I was 10 weeks along and my partner and I tried unsuccessfully to conceive for 3 years before I finally conceived with my first child. Now we are trying for our second child. I am having all the symptoms of pregnancy, including: mood swings, nausea, vomiting, tender and slightly swollen breasts, some fatigue, and slight cramps that vaguely resemble menstrual cramps. I took a test that ended up negative, but I am still experiencing all of the same symptoms that are nearly identical to those I had with my first pregnancy. I don t have the funding to go for a blood or hcg test at an actual doctor, but I was wondering if the reason my test wasn t positive may be low hcg... (I thought this may have had something to do with the fact that it took so long for a positive result the first time around!) Please help, I am starting to feel like a crazy person!

How long does it take for HCG to leave the body. I am a 25 year old female who is on accutane and has to have monthly pregnancy tests. I am on the HCG diet and I am only doing a 25 day cycle. I am wondering if there is a way that I could do a month of the HCG diet and still pass a negative pregnancy test.
