Hi my girlfriend is worried she missed her

Patient: Hi my girlfriend is worried she missed her period on January her last period was on December but we didn’t have any sexual activities nothing at all plz help!!

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.If there was no sexual activity or i ntercourse, then there is nothing to be worried about. Young girls may miss their period for 1-2 cycles due to a variety of causes such as:1) Stress2) Obesity3) Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome4) Hormonal Imbalance5) HypothyroidismIf she misses her period for one more cycle, then she needs to be examined by a gynecologist who can get the detailed investigations done. In most cases, progesterone tablets are given for 2 weeks which induces the period. But let me assure you, delayed period ( 1-2 months ) at times can be present normally without any hormonal disorder.Hope this was helpful.Regards.
