Dear,in any women capable of getting pregnant and having active sex life ,the first and foremost possibility after missing period is pregnancy.Please go urine pregnancy test if you are suspecting it.In the absence of pregnancy delay in period could occur due to some hormonal imbalance,anxiety,some medications etc.But it is important to look for pregnancy first in suspected cases.bye and take care.

Hi, I took the morning after pill almost 4 weeks ago. My period came a bit early 2 weeks later. Now I am experiencing cramping but no bleeding or other symptoms. The cramps are pretty uncomfortable. Not sure if this is just from the crazy hormone imbalance??? And what the best course of action is.

I have fairly irregular periods. I had a period January 13th, Feb. 11th, March 14th, and April 18th. It is now June 5th but no period. I started spotting a little yesterday and now its a pink/orange color? Should I be concerned? I was on the depo shot for a little over a year, and once I quit taking it, it took me over 6 months to get my period back and ive been fairly irregular ever since and ive been off the shot for almost 2 years. I am not currently on any type of birth control. Im 30 years old and have never had spotting until now. Could it be a hormone imbalance? I took a pregnancy test on May 27th but it was negative,

Hi, I m a 26 yr. old female. I m 5 5 and currently 143lbs (this is heavy for me). I have hypothyroidism which I m treating with bioidentical hormone therapy. I also have elevated levels of led in my liver. I suffer from nearly daily migraines which is due to the hormone imbalance and probably also the led in my system. I ve been doing a detox for the past 9 days and have mostly just been eating fruit, veggies and rice products. I ve actually gained weight and am feeling very bloated and uncomfortable. I m going to the bathroom regularly so I m not sure what is causing the bloating. Any suggestions?

My boyfriend is 25 years old and I have been with him for about 7 months. And whenever we have sex, very frequently it seems like he will go limp during the middle of intercourse. And there are times where it seems like we go a month without sexual intercourse. Another thing that seems to grasp my attention is that there will be random times that he gets hard, however normal conventional ways of stimulating him doesn't work. Could this be a sign of some sort of hormonal imbalance or some sort of problem with his heart?
