Late Menstruation One Day At The Age Of 23 Whether Pregnant?
I am 23 years old. Last menstruation I stopped on 5 December, and on 7 I had sex. And at this time I have not had a period that should occur on the 28th. Is there a possibility that I am pregnant?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. However, pregnancy cannot be predicted that way. This is because the benchmark you use, which is late menstruation, is one of the weakest signs in determining pregnancy. In fact, the signs of pregnancy that we often know, such as nausea, vomiting, changes in breast shape, changes in mood, increased frequency of urination, cravings, and various other signs, are signs that cannot be used as a benchmark in assessing whether someone is really pregnant or not. The reason is because these signs can be found in a number of other conditions.
Take for example the condition of late menstruation that you experience for example. It could be that you are now pregnant, but stress, lack of sleep, fatigue, hormonal imbalance, side effects of drug consumption, body condition that is too fat or too thin, a penchant for eating fast food or fatty foods, too strict diet, and certain disease conditions can also make you menstruate late. That is why we cannot mention whether you are pregnant or not. But the possibility is always there.
Therefore, we suggest that you check with your obstetrician for an ultrasound examination, because this is the examination that really can show whether you are pregnant or not. Because when a fetal heart rate has been found in your uterus, you are definitely pregnant. If not found, then the choice is not pregnant, or not seen. Under these conditions your obstetrician will usually ask you to check in 1-2 weeks. If after two tests are not found, then you are said not to be pregnant.
While at home, you can also use a testpack to find out if you are pregnant or not. The use of a test pack is best done after 1-2 weeks late menstruation. But keep in mind also that the testpack can still be wrong. It could be the wrong tool, or the wrong use so the results are not accurate. Therefore, whatever the results of the testpack, keep going to your obstetrician. So, hopefully answering your question.
