Late Menstruation But Negative Testpack Result?
I’m 3 days late for my period. Negative test results. I am now 47 years old, just married 5 months ago. I hope to get pregnant and give birth. I’m still confused it’s late because I’m pregnant or menopause. Can I still be pregnant? Do I need to repeat the test pack again a few days later? The history is 10 months ago I never had my period for 2 months, to the gynecologist I was given hormone medicine, after that I had regular menstruation again until last month. Last month I had 10 days of menstruation, 4 days with normal volume of blood, the next day blood spots, but longer than usual, only 7 days. What is the Doctor’s advice for my case? Thank you for the answer from the doctor..
