My last period was on April 18th I haven't had


Q: My last period was on April 18th. I haven't had sex since the a few weeks before April 18th. However, I haven't had a period this month yet. I've never missed my period before. What's going on?


A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Irregularities in menstrual cycles can occur due to many causes like lifestyle modifications, stress and strain, polycystic ovary disease etc leading to gonadal hormonal imbalance, thyroid hormonal imbalance, prolactin level changes etc.
As minor irregularities in periods are common, better to wait to one more week.
If you do not get periods even after one week, 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
