Why my periods are delayed?

Hi , I had brown discharge after going to the toilet today. Its how my period usually starts. The next time i wne, nothing. With my usual periods this discharge starts happening about 6-7 days before i have my full flow. Not this time. Im on my 8th day after a thaw cycle of 2 day old embryos which was grown to 5 day blastocyst transfer x1. I have not taken any meds as my progesterone was 31. I couldnt wait and had a HPT today but came up negative. I am also 40 years old and anxious !

General Surgeon 's  Response

For investigations of irregular menstruations you may be asked for hormonal work up like FSH, LH, Oestrogen, Progesterone, Prolactin, etc.

Before hormonal check up, you will be examined internally to find any organic disease like infection or cyst-Ultrasonography also will reveal a good amount of information regarding your internal organs (and even pregnancy also).

Avoid stress, take a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and do regular exercise.

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

Take care
