Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. From your complaints, we believe that your condition may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • Pregnancy
  • Aging (Period cycle may change accordingly when you start to age as the hormone production will be lesser)
  • Weight changes dan your diet may also changes the hormone production leading to late period.
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a condition where hormone production is affected.
  • Side effects of certain medications you are taking such as Postinor etc.
  • Any sort of physical stress and emotional stress will also affect your brain function to stimulate hormone production.

Medications cannot be given easily as they have side effects and the cause of your late period has not been confirmed. In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online for free.
