10 Causes Of Menstrual Delay And Solutions

1. Stress
Stress can affect many things in
our lives, including our periods.
Sometimes we're so stressed out
that our body decreases the
amount of a hormone (GnRH),
which causes us to not ovulate
or menstruate. Working with
your doctor or midwife can help
you figure out what you need to
do to relax and get back on
2. Illness
A sudden, short illness or even a
longer illness can cause your
periods to be delayed. This is
usually temporary.
3. Change in Schedules
Changing schedules can really
throw off your body clock. This is
particularly true if you go from
days to nights at work or vice
4. Change in Medications
Perhaps you're trying a new
medication and a delayed or
absent period is the cause. Be
sure to talk to your doctor or
midwife about this side effect. It
is very common with some
methods of birth control.
5. Being Overweight
Carrying around too much
weight can hormonally shift your
cycles and even stop them. Most
women will see a return to
normal cycles and fertility with
the loss of some weight.
6. Being Underweight
If you do not have enough body
fat you will not have regular
periods, sometimes you can eve
cause your periods to stop all
together. This is called
amenorrhea. Typically a weight
gain will help you have your
periods return. This is a frequent
cause of a missed period in
women who work out to an
extreme or are professional
7. Miscalculation
The menstrual cycle varies from
woman to woman. While we say
that the average menstrual cycle
is 28 days long, that is not true
for everyone. Sometimes our
period is believed to be late
when in all actuality we have
simply miscalculated. If you have
irregular menstrual cycles, but
know when you ovulate, look for
your period about two weeks
after you ovulate. That may help
you keep an easier track of your
8. Peri-Menopause
Peri-menopause is the period of
time where you are transitioning
from reproductive age to a non-
reproductive age. Your periods
may be lighter, heavier, more
frequent or less frequent - but
mostly just not normal. If you do
not wish to get pregnant, be
sure to continue to use birth
control because you are likely to
still be fertile at least some of the
9. Menopause
Menopause is when you have
reached the point in your life
where you will no longer ovulate
or menstruate. Menopause can
be a natural life event or may
happen surgically through
hysterectomy or through
chemical such as
10. Pregnancy
Finally! Yes, your missed period
might be because you're
pregnant! A simple pregnancy
test can usually help you
determine if you have missed
your period because you are
pregnant. The urine pregnancy
tests and blood pregnancy tests
look for the hormone hCG.
