 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I have not had my periods for four months, but am not pregnant. I was then asked to take a pelvis lower abdomen test which shows that my ovaries are enlarged but uterus is normal. Do I have a serious problem? Will I have problems getting pregnant?

Ekta (Madurai, India)

A: We would be able to help you better if you could mail us the exact ultrasound pelvis and lower abdomen report. Also please tell us if any other tests such as hormonal levels were done and whether any medication was given to cause the periods.

Dr. Sahni

Q: We have been trying for a baby for 4 months now. For the last two months my period has lasted for only 2 days. (Usually my period lasts for 4 days.) Do I have an iron deficiency? What could be the problem? We had intercourse based on the results of an ovulation kit, but I did not get pregnant.

Purna (Ontario, Canada)

A: I would not be in a position to help you as I do not have details of your menstrual cycle and also any other investigations that you have got done. It is best you visit your gynaecologist, who, after seeing the reports will be in a better position to help you. The option of infertility is only looked into if a couple has been trying to conceive without success over a period of one year. You are only just starting. Give it more time. Have intercourse a couple of days before and after the ovulation period as well.

Dr. Sahni

Q: I am 5 days late, but have cramps like when I have my period. Could I be pregnant?

Savita (Roseville, U.S.A)

A: Take a urine test for pregnancy after a couple of days.

Q: Can you have your period during the first month of pregnancy?

Bimla (Miami, USA)

A: No. You should not have any periods if you are pregnant.

Q: I am a month late and have always been very regular. I have taken the home pregnancy test, which is negative. Can I still be pregnant? What could be the reason for the delay?

Ojaswata (Aurora, )

A: The delay could be due to a hormonal disturbance or due to some form of physical or mental stress. Also, do a sonography to see if you have got any cyst on the ovary.

Q: On the expected date of my period, I had a bit of spotting. This lasted two days. There was no bleeding as such. Could I perhaps be pregnant?

Victoria (London, England)

A: Even if the flow was less, as long as it was on the expected date it could be considered as a period.
