Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query to ATD,

It is to be understood that a menstrual cycle of 23-35 days is considered normal as per the medical books. So if your menses have been delayed this time only by 2 days then there is no real cause of worry as this may be due to various stressors during the month which can delay the menses by causing hormonal imbalances. It is suggested that you may maintain a menstrual calendar for next 3 months to understand the pattern of your menses and also incorporate stress busting techniques like yoga and meditation into your lifestyle which can help you have a tighter control over your dates.

Regards
