Hello. I had an abortion last February. I enquired with the gynae when will I have my period, he said to expect my period after 2 months. 2 months after I still have not got my period yet till now. In between months of Feb till now, i have not been having sexual intercourse. But in between months, I had a severe sharp pain under my abdomen. I went to see a gp, he did some scan. Shows my uterus is intact, no ectopic, not pregnant. Maybe I got infection from abortion d&c procedure. The gp prescribed me with antibiotic Unasyn I have to consume for 5 days. Later that, I no longer feel any sharp pain under my abdomen. But my period is not here yet. My nurse friend suggested me with Norethisterone but as I read about the side effects it worries me - I may no longer can get pregnant once I consume this med. My problem now is, i still don’t get my period and I worried something wrong with me. Can I be infertile? I wish to be pregnant in the future.

Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. From your complaints, we believe that your condition may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • Aging (Period cycle may change accordingly when you start to age as the hormone production will be lesser)
  • Weight changes dan your diet may also changes the hormone production leading to late period.
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a condition where hormone production is affected.
  • Side effects of certain medications you are taking such as Postinor etc.
  • Any sort of physical stress and emotional stress will also affect your brain function to stimulate hormone production.

The needs for any medication must be assessed appropriately by doctors. The likelihood of becoming infertile is very low as you have had a successful conceive previously. Medications cannot be given easily as they have side effects and the cause of your late period has not been confirmed. In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints.
