Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Can you please elaborate your question.

Customer:

Hi, I have been taking 60mg of tamoxifen day 2-6 of my cycle. My periods have always been regular. I am currently 12 days late but getting neg hpt. I had a blood test 8 days late with hcg at -1.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

ok

Dr. Shahzad MD :

please continue

Customer:

My question is does toxifen delay periods? Or lower hcg levels? Is there still a chance I may be pregnant?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

What are you taking tamoxifen for?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you using it for infertility?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

Customer:

Sorry, couldn't type

Customer:

Yes for infertility

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Tamoxifen can affect periods yes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is the most likely reason that your periods are late if pregnancy has been excluded like you say.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

are you with me?

Customer:

I was hoping for a chance. You don't believe I have got false negatives? It was my understanding using tam for 5 days only regulated periods?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

At 12 days after missing periods pregnancy tests are very accurate.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

When did you have the HPT done?

Customer:

Ok. That answers that then. Thank you

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are most welcome
