Thanks for the query.
Diabetes can lead to hormonal imbalance leading to menstrual irregularity.
As you got investigated one year back and as PCOD and diabetes both can present with insulin resistance better to get examined once.
So consult gynecologist and get examined to find out the cause for delayed periods and dyspareunia.
If there is no structural cause using local analgesic and lubricant jelly can help in decreasing the pain during intercourse.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
