Patient :Hi, My period is 3 days late. Also I have been experiencing cramps. These cramps resemble contractions pain. They come and go every 2-3hrs. Does this means I'm pregnant? Or what could be wrong? Thank you.
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Little bit of irregularity in periods can occur due to many causes like lifestyle modifications, weight changes, recent illness etc.
Usually menstrual cycle with length of 21 days to 35 days should be considered as normal only.
So, better to wait for few more days. If you do not get periods even one week after expected date, please go for urine pregnancy test once.
Pain abdomen may occur due to pelvic infection sometimes.
If urine pregnancy test gives negative result and pain abdomen persists, please consult your doctor once and get examined and take treatment accordingly.
