Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My wife is 24 years old and weighs 64 kg. I and my wife had sex recently a couple of times. After having sex she had no period the following month. Both times condoms were used because we did not want to conceive. I am sure that I did not discharge inside her. She did a pregnancy strip test and it was negative. But our concern is that she is not having a period and she is never this late. We do not want to conceive. What should we do? Kindly guide us.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern. Sometimes periods might get delayed by one or two weeks because of some stress or recent illness, so you should wait for two weeks after her due date even if period does not come then get a urine pregnancy test done for accurate results. I hope I have cleared your doubts.

Thank you.
