Thanks for the query.
After ruling out the possibilities like pregnancy, stress and strain etc, the other possible causes for your problem are :
- Thyroid hormonal abnormalities.
These can present with menstrual irregularities, fatigue etc.
- Decreased hemoglobin levels.
- Breast feeding. This can cause hormonal fluctuation.
-Poly cystic ovary disease leading to hormonal imbalance.
If you performed the urine pregnancy tests immediately after the missed period, better to repeat the test now.
If the test comes negative, consult gynecologist once and get examined.
If she suggests go for ultrasound, evaluation of hormonal profile, hemoglobin level and thyroid profile.
By all these, the possible cause can be identified and treated.
Take care.
