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.
Regards,
Dr Deepti Verma

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.
Regards
Dr Deepti Verma

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.

Tightening the Tummy Iam 51 years old and weigh 77kgs.Recently I have lost 6 kgs and my weight stabilized at 77 kgs which works out to a BMI of 25 as my height is 5’10”.I maintain regular exercise -aerobics,strength training,abdominal exercises and evening walk of 4 kms.I eat selectively without oil,less Non veg,less sweets,more fruit and water ,steamed vegetables,sprouts,Almonds(4 nos) and 1 egg white.When I go to gym I take whey protein of 30 gms. My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
