What causes delayed periods?

I have not had my periperiod in 3 almost four months. No signs of pregnancy. Every once in a while I will feel a movement in many different spots in my abdomen. The last was in the upper abdomen near where my breasts rest. I am over weight and just wondering what may be going on

Hello. Thanks for writing to HCM.
I read and understand your question very well.
I try my best to help you in this.

As you have delayed period there are many causes for this.
Like 1.Excessive weight loss or gain. Although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems.
2.Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia.
3.Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes.
4.Emotional stress.
5.Illness.
6.Travel.
7.Medicines such as birth control methods, which may cause lighter,less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods or no periods at all.
8.Hormone problems. This may cause a change in the levels of the hormones that the body needs to support menstruation.
9.Illegal drug use.
10.Problems with the pelvic organs such as imperforate hymen, polycystic ovary syndrome, or Asherman's syndrome.
11.Breast-feeding. Many women do not resume regular periods until they have completed breast-feeding.

I suggest you to consults good Obstretics and Gynecologist for this.

I hope my advice will help you a lot.
Thanks and Regards.
