My periods are late. Even though my home pregnancy test is negative, it is still late. I had bleeding for a couple of days after having intercourse before three weeks. What could possibly have gone wrong?
Welcome to iclinq.com.
I saw your concern. It is unlikely to be a pregnancy. The cause for the delay could most probably be hormonal.
The reason for bleeding could be uterine or ovulatory. Nothing to worry about it. Do you have bleeding every time after sex? If yes, then you need to have in-person gynecologist opinion to look at your cervix for the cause (post-coital bleeding). Anemia, weight gain hypothyroidism, stress, change in food and exersise pattern can affect the cycle length and pattern.
I hope this helps.
Hormonal.Investigations to be done:
TVS (transvaginal scan) if the post-coital bleeding is recurrent.Probable diagnosis:
Delayed cycle (probably hormonal).Treatment plan:
Just wait for a week, if you do not get your cycles repeat UPT (urine pregnancy test) if negative, take tablet Medroxy progesterone acetate 10 mg
(Meparate) once daily at bedtime after food for five days. Cycles revert by one week of last dose of progesterone.
