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.com I 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) Stress 2) Obesity 3) Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome 4) Hormonal Imbalance 5) Hypothyroidism If 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.
