My period is 3 days late, I have taken a

Patient: My period is 3 days late, I have taken a at home test and it is negative. any ideas? I have some light cramping also.

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Delay in cycles with cramps could be due to premenstrual syndrome or even a sign of a n early pregnancy.Repeat the pregnancy test after a weeks time from the first one to rule out pregnancy. If negative again , consult the gynecologist for medications to cause withdrawal bleeding and resume next cycle.Avoid stress and unhealthy food items as they can delay cycles.Hope this helped.Regards
