Menstruation Is 1 Month Late But Negative Test Pack?
Good evening, my doctor, Yulia, I want to ask you this from the beginning of the October until the current month, I still don’t know if there are any problems.
Menstrual cycle (the distance between the first day of menstruation and the first day after) the normal woman is between 21-35 days. If a woman does not come for 3 periods in a row, it can be called amenorrhea. The most common cause of amenorrhea is pregnancy. But besides pregnancy there are several other causes of delayed menstruation, including:
PCOS / policystic ovarian syndrome causes an increase in androgen hormones (as in men) that cause ovulation disorders, so menstruation can be late or stop altogether. Characterized by physical changes growing hairs in areas such as men (arms, calves, chin, mustache, chest, etc.), oily and blotchy faces, hair baldness, obesity. On examination of the ovary sac, a picture of multiple cysts (fluid-filled bags) was found.
Poor / poor nutrition or weight loss
Hormonal disorders such as disorders of the balance of the hormones prolactin and thyroid can cause delayed menstruation
Use of contraceptive drugs
If you repeat the test pack within the next 1-2 weeks and the results are still negative and menstruation has not yet come, you can check yourself directly to the obstetrician to find out the cause of no menstruation. Especially if PCOS symptoms occur in you, you should be checked quickly.
Regular exercise, a minimum of 30 minutes per day 5 times a week. Eat nutritious foods. Get enough rest and manage stress appropriately.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
