Patient: I’m a teen and I had sex, we used a condom and I am not on birth control. My period is late, but only by about a week, I’ve had my period get off track before, he didn’t ejaculate in me either. I had surgery recently on my elbow and I’m a cheerleader, could the change in my physical activity be the cause of my late period? And what’s the chances that I could be?
Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I think that you may be pregnant or the injury of the elbow has cause changes in the hor monal levels and can cause the periods to delay. I recommend that you get a pregnancy test. If positive, please see a Doctor as soon as possible. All the best.Hope this helps you.
