Menstruation Is Late But There Are Already Signs Of Premenstrual Syndrome?
Good morning, I want to ask .. so lately my menstruation is not smooth, normally I menstruate every 28 days, sometimes it is lacking, if at least 2 or 3 days have passed, well, in October I was late about 5 days so October 7th and stopped around the 11th of October, well this month I should have menstruated again, but how come I haven’t? even though there are signs that usually come out every time I menstruate, such as the appearance of pimples on the face and cramps in the lower abdomen, but menstrual blood does not go out. I wonder why? I also have no history of sexual relations at all. And it seems there is also no drastic weight loss that causes late menstruation (my height is 167 cm, bb 48 kg), it’s just that lately I rarely eat rice and eat less nutritious food (understand that the boarding house hehe). Please answer, thank you

We understand the concerns that you feel.
Menstrual cycle is related to hormone regulation in the body. The hormones estrogen and progesterone produced in the reproductive organs, as well as the FSH and LH hormones from the brain are hormones that function to regulate a woman's menstrual cycle and when undergoing pregnancy. Normally the menstrual cycle occurs between 28 to 35 days. Whether or not the menstrual cycle is affected is influenced by various factors, including hormonal fluctuations, food consumed, physical / psychological stress, fatigue, activities undertaken, excess body weight, effects of using contraceptive pills / drugs containing hormones, polycystic ovary syndrome, etc.
Hormonal problems are the most frequent causes that can cause menstrual cycles to be smooth. Every woman has a different menstrual pattern.
In addition to its association with hormones, consumption of unhealthy, unbalanced foods and poor diet also impacts on irregular menstrual cycles. In addition, the presence of psychological disorders such as stress, depression, anxiety, can also affect hormonal regulation.
Regarding your condition, the things that you are experiencing right now tend to be within reasonable limits. Menstruation that is delayed or forward 3-7 days from the previous cycle is normal. The effect of hormonal activity in the body and other factors that have been mentioned previously greatly affect a woman's menstrual cycle. So you don't need to feel anxious.
To help fix a complaint, the following tips can be done:
Perform a healthy lifestyle
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Avoid stress and fatigue
Avoid strenuous activities
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption
Enough water needs
It is highly recommended to conduct further consultations with obstetricians to get more complete information and evaluation. Ultrasonography / ultrasound examination can help assess the condition of the uterus and see if there are abnormalities in your reproductive organs. Besides hormone testing can help assess hormone levels in your body.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
