Hi. I'm two weeks delayed now but I didn't have sex. Just a petting and I know it wouldn't lead to pregnancy.
I have taken Provera 10mg for 5 days and my last pill was March 7. My doctor is expecting me to have my period from march 8-19. 5 days from last pill and I still haven't got my period. I have taken 4 PTs already and all turned out negative.
Should I be worried? Or what would be my next step if Provera doesn't work?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
If there was no pre-cum or semen contact with vagina, then chances of pregnancy can be ruled out. The chances also depend upon presence or absence of egg in your system at the time of the unprotected sexual contact.
You should get your periods (withdrawal bleeding) within 5-10 days of taking the last pill. If you do not get the withdrawal bleeding within 10 days, then you should get a blood HCG test done to rule out chances of pregnancy. An ultrasound scan along with hormonal analysis to see if there could be any other underlying cause for your absent periods. Periods can also be delayed due to stress too. Be in regular follow-up with your treating gynecologist.
