Taking vitamins and Solaray for fertility, due for periods, but not had sex. History of miscarriage. Cause for delay?

Hi, my name is Lindsey Smith. I am 18 and very healthy. In October 2012 I got pregnant and miscarried at 5 weeks. Since then I have been taking vitamins and staying healthy to try to conceive again with my husband. I started taking Solaray Fertility Blend to ovulate more and regulate periods. I haven t had sex since January 1st. As of now I am 3 days late and have no clue why.

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

I am sorry about your loss.
Delayed or irregular periods are a common problem. They can occur as a result of (1) hormonal problems such as abnormal level of thyroid hormone (2) high levels of prolactin hormone (3) stress , physical or emotional stress can affect the periods (4) poor nutritional status (5) polycystic ovarian syndrome. This condition is associated with cysts in the ovaries, irregular periods, difficulty conceiving , abnormal hair growth (face, chest , abdomen).

You can consider waiting at least another week to 10 days to see if your periods come.
If they do not then you may want to visit your doctor for an evaluation which would include history , physical examination and investigations such as blood tests (testing for levels of some hormones).
Depending on the results, imaging may or may not be suggested.

I hope this helps
