Thanks for posting your query.
A delay in the periods with a heavy bleeding is most commonly seen due to mild hormonal disturbance in the body.
Since your periods are overdue, pregnancy needs to be ruled out.
You need to get a urine for pregnancy test done with the early morning sample of your urine.
If the pregnancy is ruled out and periods do not come then other causes need to be considered.
The other reasons of delayed periods may be hormonal imbalance, emotional upset, anxiety, stress, or other medical conditions that affect the ovaries, uterus, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland. Hypothyroidism, post pill amennorhea , polycystic ovarian syndrome are other causes that may be the considered.
Please visit your gynecologist to undergo physical check up and also to undergo relevant investigations required in your case to find out the cause so that treatment can be given accordingly.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

i dont have intercourse after my last periods and ther is no pain in abdomen or anything like that.still,is there any probality of pregnancy?
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 4 hours later
Thanks for writing again.
If you did not have intercourse after your periods last time then pregnancy is ruled out. The delay in periods is likely to be due to stress, anxiety or hormonal imbalance. You can wait for 5-7 days for your periods to start spontaneously. If that does not happen then you can visit your gynecologist who will prescribe the appropriate treatment.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

i got a slight pain in two sides of my upper abdomen and a slight burning effect in my vaginal this any cause related to my menstrual health irregularity or due to this burning summer.please answer.
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 2 hours later
The burning sensation in the vagina or upper abdomen is not likely to be related to the delay in your periods.
It can be caused by an infection in the vaginal opening. A vaginal swab culture will help in diagnosis. Meanwhile maintain a good hygiene and have plenty of fluids orally.
Take care.
