In this episode, Jess writes in to Ask the Egg Whisperer why her period is late. She's getting ready to do IVF and worries that stress might be impacting her cycle.

Here's what she asks, "Hi, Dr. Aimee. I've had my baseline scan. It was fine, but my period is now 10 days late. Why? I've taken a pregnancy test and it is negative. Have I scared my period away worrying about starting IVF? How can I get my period to come? It's always so regular that I'm really frustrated. I want to get started. Please help."

My short answer for Jess is that if she were my patient, I would make sure that we check baseline levels of Estradiol, Progesterone, FSH, and sometimes HCG as well. We want to see what's going on with your body, and look to see if there is a cyst. There is no need to sit at home and worry. Be sure and check with your doctor.
