Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
chance of pregnancy are very remote ,as your pregnancy test is also negative .there can be other causes of delayed period like tension of pregnancy after unprotected sex.so wait & watch.if no periods even with in 15 days get ultrasound done to find the cause.& get ti treated.
Wish you good health

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
As you have taken emergency contraceptive within 3hrs chance of pregnancy is low but it cant be completely ruled out. Rule out pregnancy by doing urine pregnancy test. Pregnancy occurs when intercourse is done around time of ovulation. Sometimes Periods become irregular after taking emergency contraceptive. Consult a gynecologist for further management. Take care.

Hi I wonder whether you could help me. My periods are regular at 28 days. I finished taking the pill in Sept 10. I have been doing the ovulation kits in June with no positive result and in July my period started on the 6th and I had a positive ovulation result on day 14 we had intercourse on day 12 and 13 and 15 missed the 14th!! I was due on my period on Aug 2nd and have done 5 preg tests all coming back negative and still have not come on my period. Why do you think this is I have never missed a period and my periods only ever last about 3 days. I took tests which I order from on line and also one test which was clear blue and that was this morning 4th Aug and that came back neg, We so want to be pregnant it justs seems strange that I have no sign of bleeding coming. I thought I had a feeling in my tummy that my period may come could this be something else? Please help me....

I am on the Pill , Monofeme to be exact. Take my pill regularity and never miss a tablet. No gastro or on any antibiotics . This month missed my period. now a week late and I have done home pregnancy test and it is negative. I have begun my next strip of active tablets. Should I be worried? This has happened before with no pregancy, this seems different. Feeling extremely tired. I have been very stressed for the last week or two and am wondering if this may be why. are you able to advise me?

I fingered a women then masturbated with the same hand. About 3 months later started feeling some groin discomfort and have had it on and off for 7 months. I went to the doctor and he said my lymph nodes aren't swollen and strongly opposed to an hiv test. I'm still paranoid about the whole situation should I be. She was really wet when I fingered her.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
