Missing a period is usually a joyous occasion as it indicates pregnancy. But for a huge percentage of women, this is no longer a joyous occasion simple because it is not related to pregnancy. Many women experience missed or delayed periods caused by various other factors. This can be extremely stressful, especially for young women of reproductive age, even more so if they are trying to conceive!

7 Reasons Why You May Have a Missed or Delayed Period

1. PCOS ( Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is the leading cause for irregular menstruation)

2. Weight Gain

3. Premature Menopause

4. Excessive Exercise

5. Excessive Alcohol Consumption

6. Stress

7. Hormonal Disorders

Irrgular periods at a young age should be taken seriously. It is also to be considered that weight gain and irrgular cycles form a vicious cycle, one leading to the other. Hence it becomes very difficult to break this cycle. You will find it harder to lose weight if your cycles are irregular and vice versa. So it is very important to seek help from your doctor and have yourself checked out for any thyroid or other hormonal disorders.
