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.

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?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.

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.
