Okay my period was suppose to come on dec 21 it never showed up only cramps and old blood which was a brownish color I was on nuva ring for 3 months and this have never happened what should I do? My last period was nov 23 I took a pregnancy test 2 weeks later and it said negative but , I still have cramps and hunger sypmtoms and periodic peeing. I have a doctor appointment on saturday but what if the blood test come back saying im not pregant what could be wrong ?
I always check a pregnancy test first, so you are on the right track with that one. If it is negative, I would wonder if your hormones are a little out of whack possibly due to your recent use of the Nuva ring. In your case, I would probably wait a month or two to see if things are going to sort themselves out. If you don't start having regular periods, I would then start investigating for things like thyroid problems, elevated prolactin levels, and some basic tests for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome).
