Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Delayed or irregular periods
can be due to a number of conditions such as : pregnancy, emotional or physical stress such as illness, abnormal levels of thyroid hormone, abnormal levels of prolactin hormone, extreme physical activity and PCOS.
PCOS stands for polycystic ovarian syndrome
, this condition is a common cause of irregular periods. It is diagnosed if there are at least 2 of the following : (1) delayed or irregular periods (2) polycystic ovaries
seen on ultrasound (3) signs or symptoms of increased levels of male hormones. These would include hair growth in the face/chest/abdomen, acne.
You should consider visiting your doctor for an assessment. He or she can do a blood test
to check for HCG which would determine if you are pregnant.
If this negative then other investigations such as blood levels of thyroid hormome , prolactin, testosterone
would be done. Imaging would also be suggested.
I hope this helps
