Question: I have thrush last month and I went to the gyne . He inserted a pill in and gave me anti inflammatory medication. After a few days. I had bleeding. The medication was inserted after my mens about a week or two. Now my mens have been delayed for 2 and a half weeks. I did the pregnancy test but it was negative. I feel tired recently my tummy starts to bloat a little and I have not much appetite at times But other then that I did not feel any symptoms

Brief Answer:
Could be mild hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
The thrush infection or the medication can generally not cause a delay / change in your periods.
You are having pre menstrual symptoms, so your period is probably on the way.
Conditions such as stress, anxiety, weight changes, unaccustomed exercise, smoking, drinking, travelling, late nights, erratic eating , hormonal pills - all can affect your periods.
Once in a while, you can ignore a late period.
Do you always have regular cycles , is this a one - off occurrence ?
If the irregular / delayed pattern of cycles persist, you should have an internal exam, Pap smear and ultrasound scan plus hormonal levels to rule out polycystic ovaries, fibroids or other conditions.
Right now, mild hormonal disturbance at times can lead to delayed cycles.
If you do not have your period within a week's time, have the evaluation as above, and the OB - GYN can prescribe progesterone tablets to kickstart your cycle.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
