Patient: I am 26, no sex in 10 months . My average cycle has been lasting 38 days but I am going on 47 days since my last period started. What could be the problem

Irregularities in menstrual cycles can occur due to many caus es like lifestyle modifications, weight changes, stress and strain, recent illness etc leading to gonadal hormonal imbalance, thyroid hormonal imbalance, prolactin level changes, general conditions like anemia, altered blood sugar levels etc.Irregularity due to minor causes may subside soon and menstrual cycles may regularize.If irregularity persists, better to get evaluated.In that case, please do consult your doctor, get examined and go for investigations like ultrasound, gonadal hormonal profile, thyroid hormonal profile, prolactin levels, hemoglobin and blood sugar levels estimation etc.With this workup, the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.Take care.
