Patient :I'm three months late on my period. I haven't took a pregnancy test. I also haven't had any pregnancy symptoms nor have I gotten any bigger. Could I be pregnant and if not why haven't I had my period.
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Periods can be delayed due to lots of different reasons such as hormonal imbalance, thyroid disorders, obesity, PCOD, stress, e.t.c
I will first advise, you to get a pregnancy test done just for confirmation, and then follow-up with your gynecologist who can advise some tests for you including a detailed hormonal assay.
Hope this was helpful,
