Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
When have you taken a pregnancy test last ?
Your period can be delayed due to the frequent intake of the emergency morning after pill.
When used so frequently, it leads to irregular / delayed cycles, and is not effective as a contraceptive either.
Please do not take any more morning after pills, and let me know when you took the test last ?
Also, what is your height and weight ?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Patient replied :
hi, thankyou for replying so soon.
i took the test on the Sunday (12th).
Last i took the pill was about 2 months ago.
height :5ft 3 inch
also i was wondering if you cud suggest a good contraceptive pill/ method for me, though we always use condoms, i just want to be safe from my side too.
No there is no question of a pregnancy.
You are overweight, so that can be a reason for delayed periods.
ONce in a while a period might be delayed due to stress, anxiety, travelling, late nights, erratic eating, being overweight, etc.
If this happens again, or you do not have your period within the next week, please consult a Gynecologist.
Go for an internal exam, Pap smear, Pelvic transvaginal ultrasound scan and hormonal levels - FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin.
You can start using Femilon, which is a good contraceptive pill, and should be started on the second day of your cycle.
Patient replied :
Hi, my period started today (19th night).Can I start taking femilon from tomorrow.I am also having a lot of cramps, can u suggest something for that?Thanks
Yes, you can start taking femilon regularly from tomorrow onwards.
You can take tablet Meftal Spas for the pain and cramps, if it is very severe, and persists inspite of the medication, you should consult your doctor.
