Dr. Pfeiffer :

hello

Dr. Pfeiffer :

considering you used a condom and had your regular period after intercourse..pregnancy is unlikely.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

now, there are many reasons women are late for their period..pregnancy being the most common..

Dr. Pfeiffer :

however, things like stress, anxiety, illness, medicines, changes in diet/exercise, thyroid problems..etc can cause this to happen.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

it isn't terribly uncommon for a woman to be late or even miss a period and it usually resolves with time.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

It is unlikely the antibiotics have anything to do with this, however, if you were ill enough to take antibiotics that could be the cause.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

If/when you are 7 days late for your period...that's when you should take a pregnancy test as that's when it will be accurate.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

If you have additional questions please ask…I want you to be satisfied with this service.

Customer:

ok so my people should balance out in few days

Customer:

yes i had impetigo

Customer:

thanks

Dr. Pfeiffer :

it usually takes a few weeks rather than a few days.

Customer:

so slight pregnancy but possaible not i not had sex since the 4th oct?

Customer:

shal i do another pregnancy test tom to check?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok...a pregnancy test 19 days after intercourse would be accurate.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so if you took one now it would be accurate.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

yes, I think that would exclude pregnancy as the cause.

Customer:

ok

Customer:

i took the last pregnany test after 21 days of intercourse?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I was going by the 4th of october to now the 4th of november...being 31 days or so

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so two weeks ago would have been about 17

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I would repeat it tomorrow.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

if negative....not pregnant and things should resolve with time..

Dr. Pfeiffer :

and if you don't have a period in another cycle or two...see your doctor.

Customer:

i re did test today it said not pregnant


how long should i wait for my period now to start


could just be fact i was ill last week ?

Hi...

if pregnancy is not the cause it is ok to wait and see.

we typically advise seeing a doctor if you don't have a period for 3 months.

So, you have time to see if this will resolve without medications...which is usually will.

It may be due to being ill last week...yes.
