Pregnancy or hormonal disorder?

Pregnancy or hormonal disorder?

Question:

- The menstrual cycle delayed me last month, but before a month I had the menstruation. What I don't know is if it was normal, or it could be over a pregnancy. I did 2 pregnancy tests, both came out negative. Is it possible that I am pregnant or is it a hormonal disorder? How could I find out without a medical checkup?

Answer:

Amenorrhea (lack of menstruation) is the first sign of the presence of a pregnancy but not the only one: usually other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, changes in taste and appetite, heartburn, constipation; bloating, irritability, drowsiness or contra - insomnia, frequent urination, increase in volume and feeling of breast tension. Pregnancy tests are usually positive after at least 14 days after fecal sexual contact, but there are rare but possible cases in which the test results may be false.

Pregnancy tests are usually positive after at least 14 days after fecal sexual contact, but there are rare but possible cases in which the test results may be false.
Therefore the only method that can establish with certainty the absence or presence of a pregnancy is the gynecological consultation accompanied by an endovaginal ultrasound (at the endovaginal probe ultrasound is visible starting from 5-6 weeks of gestation - calculated from the date of the first day of the last menstruation). ; If your gynecologist still has a pregnancy doubt, he or she may recommend beta-HCG in the blood, a hormone that is secreted by the trophoblast (the future placenta) and that increases in blood during pregnancy.


In your case, given that two pregnancy tests were negative, that menstrual bleeding was still occurring (with a delay) and assuming you have no pregnancy symptoms (you did not specify any symptoms other than menstruation delay) it is more it may be a hormonal disorder rather than a pregnancy. But in order to be sure of this, I recommend that you consult with confidence for a consultation with a gynecologist.
