Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Irregularity in periods can occur due to many causes like gonadal hormonal imbalance, thyroid hormonal imbalance, changes in prolactin levels, lifestyle modifications, poly cystic ovary disease etc.
Hardening feeling of the abdomen can be seen in conditions like gastric disturbances, edema of the abdominal skin, in premenstrual phase etc.
As your pregnancy test was negative, there is less possibility for pregnancy.
As you didn't get periods since three months, better to consult your doctor and get evaluated to find out the cause for delayed periods and take treatment accordingly.
Take care.
