Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding this matter. For your information, a normal women’s menstrual cycle is between 21 to 34 days and the menstrual flow can last as short as 2 days until 7 days.

Also, there are number of factors which can cause a woman to have her period early:

  • Uterine fibroids and polyps
  • Endometriosis or adenomyosis
  • Emotional stress
  • Daily activity is too active and packed
  • Problems with the thyroid gland
  • Problems with the blood clotting system

Still worried about your menstrual cycle? Speak to a gynaecologist today to ease your mind.

However, this is only our general impression on why you have your period delayed. We strongly suggest you to see a doctor so that you can get examined and treated accordingly.
