Hello doctor,

Kindly shed light on some issues. I had my period two months back and I had the next once a month later, which only came for a day and I have not had it since it till now. I did home test before my period came which read negative. My two breasts ache and immediately after my period comes, the pain disappear. How many days menstrual cycle do I have? Am I pregnant?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Menstrual cycle can be 23 days to 37 days. And bleeding can be from 1 day to 10 days anywhere and all this normal. No need to worry. Sometimes due to imbalance in your body or normally also, your period can be 5 to 6 days here or there and it is absolutely normal.When there is a major imbalance or another problem in ovary than it is more irregular.

Now it is also true that sometimes you only have minimal bleeding around your period date while you are pregnant called as implantation bleeding. Around the date, the test can be negative. Do urine pregnancy test once again now, if it is negative, then you are not pregnant and it was normal menses.

For breast pain, many female suffer before and during menses also, it is due to hormonal (chemical) changes happening during your cycle that also affects other body parts. And it is one of it. So do not worry. In case of unbearable pain, you can take oral painkillers. You have normal menstrual cycle.
