Does Stress At Work Affect Late Menstruation?
HealthReplies.com, I want to ask, I’m a 20-year-old girl, I last menstruated last September, and until now I haven’t menstruated, but the symptoms that I feel like menstruation usually appear, for example my back pain has been very often feel but until now I have not menstruated, indeed for the past few weeks I have been stressed with my work, does it have an impact on my late menstruation? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Late menstruation in women of reproductive age who have a history of previous sexual relations is pregnancy. If indeed you have a history of previous sexual relations, then try to do a pregnancy examination first by using a test pack. Check with urinating first in the morning so the results are more accurate and make sure you have read and performed all the inspection steps listed in the package carefully.
If your pregnancy test results are negative, try to repeat the test 3-7 days later if you have not menstruated. If the results remain negative or if you do not have a history of previous sexual relations, then the late menstruation can be caused by other things. Excess stress can be one of the causes of delayed menstruation, but there are also other things like:
a body that is too thin or too fat
excessive weight gain or increase
certain diseases such as diabetes, thyroid hormone disorders, PCOS
drug side effects or hormonal contraception
certain tumors that cause hormonal disorders
For now, try to reduce your stress at work, and try to live your days more relaxed. Pay attention to other things that can cause menstrual disorders above, if you have other factors (for example, the body is too thin, too fat, or you are doing a weight loss program), then try to make the above conditions more ideal (lose weight body slowly if there is obesity, increase body weight slowly if the body is too thin, etc.).
If you don't menstruate until the following month, check with your gynecologist for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
