Had regular periods and white discharge. Why is it longer?

Hi, I am 44 yrs old and till last month had periods regularly at an interval of 26 days. This month I had white discharge instead of periods for around 4-5 days with cramps . The discharge was watery without smell. It has stopped, but no periods. My hemoglobin is 11 and TSH is 3.5. I am worried as I my period is long overdue.

Thanks for the query.
Usually before periods, the vaginal discharge can increase in quantity.
As you are not having any associated symptoms like smell, itching etc, no need to worry.
And during perimenopausal period, some amount of fluctuation in the hormonal levels is common.
And that may be one reason for delayed periods.
If there is any possibility of pregnancy, better to rule out.
Go for pregnancy test.
If the test comes negative, wait for one more week.
Possibly by that time you will get periods.
If not, consult gynecologist once, get examined and go for ultrasound.
By this the possible cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
And you can take tablets to induce withdrawal bleeding with her advice.
For more details you can ask me directly through the premium forum.
Take care.
