Thanks for writing to us.

There are several possibilities of stomach ache and these include indigestion problem, constipation, gastritis, ulcers, symptoms.

As your period is delayed, your current abdominal ache could be related to delayed period. Some women get abdominal pain / cramp prior to start period. It is common with irregular period / hormone disarray.

Ultrasound scan and other hormone test/ blood test can be helpful to know the probable cause (ovarian cyst or PCOD) of abdominal pain and delayed period.

I would urge you to consult your doctor to streamline the investigations based on clinical examination if the pain is troubling/if periods do not occur soon.

In the interim, things that you can follow are:
1) Take antacids. They are useful with symptoms related to indigestion.
2) Drink more water & eat XXXXXXX vegetables to avoid constipation.
3) Continue daily work out to control body weight & take healthy diet.
4) Avoid stress/ tension/ emotional upset by regular XXXXXXX breathing.
5) Continue thyroid medication and maintain personal hygiene.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Thanks for follow up query. It is also glad to hear that your pain is gone.

You need to consult with gynecologist for pin point diagnosis in case of delayed period and take proper medication with suggestive measures.
