Hi my girlfriend is worried she missed her


Q: 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!!


A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
If there was no sexual activity or intercourse, 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.
