Hello good morning,

This is not covid related. I just want to ask something since I cannot go out for check up. I am delayed for 11 days and yesterday I started to have spotting. It is unusual to me since I know if I have my period. I don't feel any cramps yesterday and even today. The flow is not heavy. I can feel dizziness sometimes however, the result of my PT was negative. Is there any possibility that I am pregnant? My husband and I are hoping to have a baby.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As the pregnancy test is negative it's less likely to be pregnancy.... however inview of false negatives with preg card, do a blood test called serum beta hcg to confirm it..... sometimes cycle can be delayed due to hormonal changes, stress, increase in wt, alteration in the diet pattern ,hypothyroidism etc.... .. if this irregularity continues in subsequent cycles ultrasound pelvis is required to look for the cause... (note - if it's not possible to get blood test done, due to lock down repeat the urine pregnancy test right in the morning (first morning urine) ).hope the suggestion is useful... regards n wishes for u to conceive soon.

The Probable causes:

delayed cycle- hormonal

Investigations to be done:

serum beta hcg, TSH, usg pelvis( if irregularity continues)

Probable diagnosis:


Regarding follow up:

to review with beta hcg if any queries....
