If you aren’t pregnant yet find your period delayed or amiss, there could be multiple reasons for this. Experiencing a delay in period over a prolonged period of time can be very disturbing.
Possible reason of a missing period other than pregnancy?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) – These two conditions are very common these days. Most women are being affected by PCOD or PCOS. Due to the formation of cysts on the ovary, ovulation gets hindered. So you can miss period due to these two conditions.
Thyroid- Hormonal imbalance can lead to irregularity in period. Be it hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, the periods gets disturbed due to either of these conditions. Get your blood tests done to determine the thyroid levels and switch to medication under doctor’s advice.
Stress, eating disorder and lack of good sleep. Not sleeping on time or sleep deprived, eating junk food, being under a lot of stress can easily disturb the menstrual cycle.
Consuming birth control medication can also trigger the hormonal problem and cause a missed period.
Anemia: Low haemoglobin could be another reason behind the delay in period.
Overweight and underweight – Gaining weight or being obese hinders menstrual cycle.
