Delayed periods, white vaginal discharge, acne breakouts. Negative pregnancy tests. Causes for symptoms?

HI. My period is 5 days late. I AM NEVER LATE. My period is like clock work. I have been having white discharge for about a week and a half now. I have also started to break out with acne on my face, which I never do that either. If I do break out its right around the time of my period and its only no more than 2 zits, but now I have about 6. Also, yesterday I plucked out 2 black chin hairs (strange). This is something I have never experienced before. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I am very concerned. Please help.

dear patient,

Do a pregnancy test one more time ,confirm whether it is negative or not. Other wise,It is normal to have menses 5 days earlier or late than normal ,may be because of some stress factor,etc., and your acne flare can be because of hormonal imbalance,fast foods,junk food etc.,so avoid those foods.Topical creams like salicylic acid 2.5% or azelaic acid cream or topical erythromycin solution once/twice a day, can control acne.

The white discharge , if it is more than normal,foul smelling,altered colour, then it can be an infection and should be treated according to the microorganisms present.It needs clinical examination and laboratory tests to conclude the cause for discharge. consult a gyneacologist.

First of all, you should undergo one blood test for beta-HCG to confirm/ exclude pregnancy at the earliest.

In exclusion of pregnancy, other reasons are ovarian cyst (most common with above features), hormonal imbalance, stress/anxiety, thyroid problem, weight gain/ extreme loss, irregular eating habits, psychological factor etc.

Need to investigate properly to pin point the diagnosis by USG lower abdomen, complete hormone assay, thyroid profile, blood sugar & prolactin level, blood testosterone level etc. Consult with your gynecologist for proper guidance. You may need to take hormonal medication with other supportive therapy.

Avoid stress/ tension, take healthy diet with Vitamin & iron supplements, control body wt by regular physical exercise and take sound sleep.

Be well and take care.
