Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
In my opinion get the following tests to see if hormone disturbance is the cause.
Get TSH and prolactin levels and then tell me the report.
In case all hormone levels are normal then nothing much to worry but I will give you medication for prevention of symptoms during the period of delay.
