Hi!
welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Delayed cycles can be due to hormonal changes(natural or from oc pills), stress, thyroid hypofunction,anemia,infections etc..Do get a ultrasound scan of pelvis to see for ovaries-Cysts/polycyst etc..,get routine blood profile,thyroid profile,blood sugar,prolactin levels and let us know.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
