Causes For Delay In Menstruation?
Tonight, why haven’t I been menstruating for this month? Are my hormones disturbed?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Delay in menstruation can be caused by several underlying conditions, including:
1. Physical and psychological stress
2. Excess body weight
3. Use of contraception
4. Impaired thyroid hormone function
5. Chronic illness
6. Polycystic ovary disease
7. Smoking habits
Try to start doing something light like a lifestyle change to be healthier so menstruation is also smooth. Manage stress well, do regular exercise, eat well and be nutritious, and get enough rest.
If you experience menstruation for more than 3 months then it is categorized as secondary amenorrhoea, it requires consultation with an obstetrician to be evaluated to find the underlying cause.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
