Brief Answer:
Due to PCOS and stress

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, thanks for trusting me for asking your queries.
Since you have PCOD, it might be the cause of your delayed periods. Excessive exercise and gym initially leads to stress on the body, which also can lead to delayed periods due to hormonal changes.
I will, however, advise you to get urine pregnancy test, to rule out any pregnancy.
If negative, then you can wait for the periods for another one month. Continue with exercise and weight loss.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Hi Doctor

Please let me know is it only because of PCOS or any other reason. I am very much worried because of this.

Is there any chances of PRegnancy since i didnt get any symptoms.

Answered by Dr. Deepti Verma 8 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Be positive

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX do not get disheartened. It can be due to PCOS, pregnancy or stress associated with exercise.
A urine pregnancy test will rule out pregnancy. Even very early pregnancy do not have any symptoms.
Patients with PCOS can very well conceive, if proper treatment is given. As I have told you earlier also, please be positive and hopeful. Stress and worrying decrease the chances of conception.
Please get back to me with the result of urine pregnancy test done with the first urine in the morning tomorrow.
I am again emphasizing you to remain happy, hopeful and positive.

I am two years out from bariatric surgery. When I eat a meal, sometimes, I have to lay down because my heart starts beating so hard. What does it mean when I can feel my heart beating by putting my hand on my chest? It often takes up to 2 hours until the heart calms down.
