Thank you for posting a question.

Look, first of all, do a home pregnancy test. It will confirm the absence of pregnancy. It is necessary. Though she is telling that she does not have a boyfriend, still, it is a document.

If pregnancy test result becomes non contributory, an ultrasound scan of abdomen is necessary.

In case of negative pregnancy test, then also, she needs an ultrasound scan of whole abdomen. It will detect any abnormality in her overies or uterus. I am telling you this because, her symptom sounds like polycystic overian syndrome.

If polycystic overy is suspected, all the hormonal profile should be done .

After that a short course of progesterone is needed to induce period. Period will occur within 7 days of stopping the drug.

Lastly, consult with a gynecologist in person for detailed clinical examination and also further management accordingly.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
