Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us on Healthcare Magic.

From your given history, I can assume that you have undergone pregnancy test recently and ruled out pregnancy. Otherwise, you have to repeat the test.

There are several reasons of missed or delayed period like hormonal imbalance, mental stress or depression, taking psychiatric medication, ovarian cyst, pelvic infection, anemia, improper diet habit or digestion problem etc. Ovarian TB is not relevant just for one missed period as it was cured few years ago.

Here, I suggest you to undergo some basic investigations like ultrasound scan, hormone test (thyroid, D21-progesterone), blood Hb% & sugar level etc. These will help to pinpoint the diagnosis and give proper treatment. You can consult with your gynecologist for proper guidance.

In the mean time, you can do the following things to get effective result:

1) Take iron and vitamin supplements with your diet (enriched with vegetables, animal protein and pulses).

2) Do regular meditation or yoga for 15-30 min to avoid mental stress/ anxiety or depression.

3) Drink more water (2.53 lit/ day) or fruit juice to stay hydrated and better systemic circulation.

4) Maintain genital hygiene properly and do light exercise to control body weight.

5) Hormonal medication and other supportive treatment may be needed on the basis of test report.

In addition, you can take this food stuff like broccoli, fennel seeds, salmon fish (rich in vitamin D & calcium), green vegetables (like spinach, brinjal etc), fish or fish oil (rich in omega-3 fatty acid), almonds, sesame seeds, yoghurt dairy product, soy milk, boiled egg, red or black grapes, tofu or paneer etc. These are quite helpful to get early and regular period.

Hope, above information is quite helpful to you. Let me know, if you need any clarification.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.
