Your Period is Late 10 Reasons Behind this

Women do not generally panic when they miss period if they had not tried anything to get pregnant. When women miss period pregnancy is the first thought that comes in the mind of woman. But pregnancy is not the only factor working when one misses a period. There are ten reasons working behind this.

late periodStress is one such important factor. Stress can affect our health in many ways including the missing of the period. When we are in stress some hormones are released and it prevents the bleeding. Then doctor’s advice on the way of relaxing should be taken. Secondly prolonged or short illness may result in delayed menstruation. Change of routine e.g. working in the night shift from day shift is also a factor working behind delayed period. If a new medicine is experimented or tried it can often postpone the period. One should always consult a doctor before using such medicine and should be aware of the side effects.

Obesity often results in the secretion of the hormone which makes the menstrual cycle irregular and also causes infertility. It is seen that by loosing weight one can have regular period. Not only over weight but also under weight results in delayed period. Insufficient fat often result to irregular period. Sometime the problem becomes so severe that it stops the period completely. This disease is known as Amenorrhea. With the gain of weight they can overcome this problem. This problem is generally seen in professional athletes.
Period  Late
The general cycle is of 28 days. But these vary from woman to another. Sometime one miscalculate the days and think that one is having late period but in reality it is not so. We can know the correct answer if we know when one ovulates. Pre menopause is yet another important reason for delayed period. It is the time when one is switching to the non reproductive stage from the reproductive stage. The time of period and its flow is very unpredictable. Sometimes the flow is more frequent, sometimes it is less frequent, sometimes it is heavier and sometimes it is lighter. In this stage one should use birth control measures if one does not want to get pregnant because at this stage also there are also some chances of remaining fertile.

Menopause is the period when a woman does not have period anymore. At this point of life one reaches the non reproductive stage. It can happen through natural process or can do this by surgery through chemicals such as chemotherapies or through hysterectomy.

Period  LateFinal reason for missed period is pregnancy. A simple test of pregnancy assures ones pregnancy. Some such tests are blood pregnancy test or urine test which looks for the hormone HCG. If the pregnancy test shows a negative result it is always advisable to wait for a week and then again go for a test. If the result is again negative and one already knows the reason for the missed period then one should go to the doctor for a physical test.

    its been 3weeks i dont have mens ;( i’m so paranoid.

  3. Amit Bhawani says:

    Haydie, i would recommend you to check if your pregnant using the testing options at home, because if you are pregnant you can quickly overcome it. Also sometimes you dont get periods on time because of the reasons listed above, so dont worry about it much. This is a problem with many girls and the more you think about it the more tension you get. Just try to stay calm and focus on other things.

    its been 3 months 🙁 i dont have my period im really scare that something is wrong im sure im not pregnant because i havent done anything what should i do please help me

  5. Amit Bhawani says:

    Mely, if if its three months; then she should begin by taking a pregnancy test. You should also make an appointment with your doctor. If you don’t have a doctor then you must make an appointment with Planned Parenthood or another nearby clinic.

    Skipping periods does not necessarily mean you are pregnant. Some women have erratic (irregular) periods for other reasons, such as weight issues (severe under or overweight), athleticism (extreme athletes) or hormone imbalances (fluctuating estrogen levels).

    Again, you should make an appointment for a check-up and go over your symptoms with your physician.

    Symptoms of pregnancy differ from woman to woman (and pregnancy to pregnancy). Some women will never feel sick, while some will experience nausea all the way through to their due dates – you cannot go by that at all.

    Buy an at-home test kit. If you can find one with a ‘buy one, get one free’ (two-fer) then do it; that way you will have an extra to try if the results of the first round are inconclusive. If you do an at-home test and it comes up negative (not pregnant) but still has not had her period, go to the doctor. It is possible (unlikely) that the test read as a false negative, but the doctor can find out for sure.

    Good luck
