I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Should a gynecologist be visited for delayed periods?

Hi, my period cycle is usually app. 28-32 days. This time it s already 37 days without period, pregnancy is not an option. If it comes until day 40 and then next month the cycle is well again, should I still visit a gynecologist? I m 32 years old and for the last 20 years my period was always in the 21-36 daya cycle. If it doesn t appear at all or if it delays next month again I sure will search for advice, but if it happens only once I probably don t need to worry? Thank you in advance for your advice.

You can wait a few more days and repeat the urine pregnancy test.

If periods are delayed long, you can consult a gynecologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi my expected period date for this month is 15th Oct, but I don t want my period to come on that day. Even if the period comes on 16th Oct it is fine, but I dont want it on 15th. My gynecologist suggested me to take Meprate from tomorrow i.e 11th Oct and continue till 12th Oct. Is it sufficient or should I extend using the Meprate for 13th Oct as well???
