    No period on time

    Hi All,

    I had laproscopic for PCOS in the month of Sept 2012. After that my period my cycle was normal and on time. Last month on 06th Nov 2012 I had my cycle date.

    But on this month (Dec 2012) on 06th my cycle not started. On 17th Dec 2012 started a little spoting one or twice daily and cramp pain on leg and back.

    Is this the cause of the pregnancy (I did not tested yet) and please tell me what should I do.
    Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
    Dear Parmi: As I recall you had a type of ovary drilling--then FSH injections? Hope I am tracking you correctly. The cycle on 10/6 seemed normal, the cycle on 11/6 was shorter.

    Thus you did not have a bleed from early November until today's spotting. Given that you have been trying to conceive you should check a reliable pregnancy test first. If that test is a negative you may have to wait and see if this is the onset of a late cycle. You are being followed by a specialist in fertility (eg GYN or reproductive endocrinologist) so I would urge you to contact their office about this late spotting/cramping.

    Of course we all are rooting for you to conceive as soon as possible!!!!
