Welcome to health care magic forum
Secondary amenorrhea is most commonly due to pregnancy or hormonal disturbance. If you think there is no chance of pregnancy then you must get your hormonal tested along with ultrasound a whole abdomen to find the cause & get it treated.

hi, the first day of my last period was the 11th of August. I do have the paraguard iud.. overall, my periods have always been regular. i never missed periods, although occasionally they seemed a day or two off but that could have been my own miscalculation at the time. my period has not arrived and today i have only had mucus type spotting with light red blood and only when i wipe. I took a pregnancy test this morning as well as yesterday, both were negative. what could this mean?

I am 7 days late on my period. I usually have a 26 day cycle. I took a home pregnancy test 2 days after my missed period and another one this morning. Both were negative. I ve been having menstrual type cramps for a couple days now and I ve been urinating frequently. I am also more tired than usual. These are similar symptoms of my first pregnancy only difference is that back then my home pregnancy tests actually came out positive right at 4 weeks (the day of my expected period). Could I be pregnant this time or all these symptoms just coincidence?

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
