Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the statement you gave on the above section, I completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information there are a few factors that could cause hair loss such as:

  • abnormal level of androgen hormones
  • injury to the scalp
  • infection of the scalp
  • medical condition called alopecia
  • genetics.
  • stress can cause hair loss
  • chemotherapy
  • autoimmune disease
  • shampooing too often, bleaching and dying your hair makes your hair thinner and weaker
  • illness such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, iron deficiency anemia
  • low protein diet can lead temporary hair loss

Besides that, late period can happen due to reasons like:

  • Stress
  • Changes in your daily activities
  • Too much exercise
  • Sudden loss or gain in weight
  • Thyroid problem

Therefore, you will need to see a doctor so that you can get assessed properly and proper treatment can be given to you.

You can talk to us online if you need further information or if you want to get a consultation on your period problem. We will try our best to help.

We hope this explanation helps.
Thank you.
