Hi lybrate-user. Not a big issue. Irregular periods is because of ovarian cyst. You have to take some painkillars for the time being. And you have have to start 3 month course for correction of cyst. So dat it will subside. And your periods will become regular after this treatment. Also you have to correct your food habit by avoiding junk food and bakery items, start yoga and walk.

If u are sure of your dates... That's what doctor can't deny.. and what he talks is related to sonography and growth..as some pregnancy can be late conception.. moreover delivery would be around your due date not on the exact date.. Birth of Angels would be destiny..no one knows exactly date..not u and neither ur doc.

Hello, you are required to start taking the tablet at least three days before your period is due and to continue taking it for the duration that you would like to delay your period. Take tablet it is recommended that norethisterone 5 mg tablets should be taken to delay your period for a maximum of 17 days. It is perfectly safe to delay your period for this amount of time. After you stop taking the tablets, your period is likely to start after two or three days, however the time scale may be different for every individual. This dose of norethisterone is not recommended for prolonged use, as it can cause side-effects and affect your hormone balance.

I m 22 years of age. Recently I did sex with my fiancee and he told me that i m not a virgin. But I never done sex before. Then I checked my vagina with my fingers and I also have doubt that i m not a virgin because my vagina's hole is too big and I never felt pain when he entered his penis at the first time. I m I virgin or not?

Anyone who did not have sexual intercourse is Virgin and only that person knows. You know about yourself. You were virgin till your first intercourse.

I'm taking fertility treatment from this cycle. Doc gave 2shots of fsh 150. My egg grew well and I was given trigger injection for ovulation. She said to have intercourse each other day from the next day for 3 days. Me and my husband had sex on the 1st day but didn't continue for the other days. What are the chances of getting pregnant.

Hi lybrate-user, you were given fsh shots for making your follicles grow, I also agree to the trigger hcg injection. What I disagree with is the" alternate day intercourse' instead, I would have suggested you to go for ovulation study by usg and then have targeted sex on ovulation precisely. This will definately increase your fertility.

Hypothyroidism and Poly cystic ovarian disease also causes irregular periods. Her age is 41 yrs right, may be because of menopause (cessation of menstruation)also periods are irregular. Better to take Homoepathy medicines. It helps to reduce menopausal symptoms.

Yes, emergency contraceptives have side effects and quite obvious. So wait for the effects of i-pill to subside. Delay in periods is quite normal in this case. Please do not consider emergency contraceptives as means for preventing pregnancy. Adopt safe sex practices to avoid pregnancy if you are sexually active.

Mere pause is not sufficient for pregnancy bleeding. You need examination of cervix and also an usg urgently to diagnose the cause of bleeding.
