Customer Question

My period is 5 days late

Hello,

the menstrual cycle is a very sensitive process and affected by many influences. So period easily can be delayed without a serious reason. I would suggest a pregnancy test, if the result is negative, you should await the further process.

Best regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

My period is normally right on track, however a few weeks ago I had strep throat really bad and I'm not sure if that's what threw it off
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 year ago.

Yes, that´s a possible reason, infections can have an effect on the hormonal cycle.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
should I just wait it out or do I need to go to the dr. also, is it normal to miss a period
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 year ago.

This can happen every now and then without a serious background. Investigation would be required if bleeding doesn´t start within another week.

I've had a lot of stress lately too...my husband just got laid off from his job...I'm really unsure as to what I should do...
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 year ago.

Stress has an influence too. It´s no reason to worry for sure, just await the further progression.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
when would you suggest I go to the dr.
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 year ago.

This should be done if bleeding doesn´t appear during another week.
