Patient :Why is my period late if I've never had sex and I haven't been with anyone not even kissing since before my last period? I know school and having a job are stressful but I eat well and exercise daily... So why is it late and when will it come?
Thanks for the query.
There are many causes for a delay in cycles other than pregnancy like thyroid hormone dysfunction, anemia, nutritional deficiencies, obesity, stress, vitamin deficiencies, sudden weight loss, chronic illness or infection.
Polycystic ovaries are a common cause for delayed cycles among young women.
Kindly consult a gynecologist for an examination and specific investigations and treatment.
Hope this was helpful.
