Thanks for the query.
Missed periods could be due to many reasons.
Some of them are pregnancy, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem, emotional disturbance, stress and ovarian cyst.
I suggest you to get a urine pregnancy test. If it is negative, consult your Gynecologist to narrow down the causes of missed periods.
Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
