Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 31 years old, 83 kgs weight and 5 feet 2 inches in height. I had my last period nearly one month back and had sexual intercourse after two weeks of periods. Although I had pregnancy symptoms, my tests were negative. Please tell me if I can go for a blood test at an early stage or wait till my periods for being missed.

Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your case. As per your descriptions, these symptoms are the hormonal imbalance that can be due to pregnancy also. But the chances can be low. As you have missed your periods, I think it can be an anovulatory cycle due to hormonal changes or pregnancy. You should also go for a home urine pregnancy test after seven days of your missed periods or a blood beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) testing to figure out pregnancy. If pregnancy is not there, then it could be a hormonal imbalance. And then, wait and watch for menstruation or consult your gynecologist and take Progesterone for withdrawal bleeding. Also, check your thyroid profile and hemoglobin for hormonal changes.

Thank you.
