8 Unwanted Conditions That Lead To Missing Period Other Than Pregnancy!


A delayed or missed period is one of the serious nightmares a lady ever has. Thousands of ideas start to hover throughout your brain: Did you forget to take the pill, are you pregnant, is something wrong with your ovaries, and what not!

But there are larger than this one cause of pregnancy behind missed periods.

Read some of the most usual problems of delayed/missed periods before you go buy a pregnancy kit!



#1 Stress


Stress has a stronger hold on your hormones than you think. It affects hypothalamus- part of the brain which is responsible for your period. If you've had an extra load of work in the office or going through a breakup, that might be the reason for your delayed or missed period.

#2 Excessive exercise


If you're new to the gym or have taken rigorous exercises as a daily routine, chances are your periods will be delayed, or even missed.



#3 Sudden change in weight


Sudden gain or loss of weight (in significant quantity) can cause a disbalance in hormones and thus affect the ability to ovulate. This, in turn, leads to missed periods.

#4 Thyroid inactivity


Hormone levels are affected if the thyroid glands don't function properly. The overactive (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism) can have an impact on the menstrual cycle.



#5 Changed medication


Since many medicines come with hormones already, a change in medicines may cause an imbalance in the hormones in your body for some time. This might lead to delayed periods.

#6 Birth control


When you go on or off the contraceptive pills, your body takes some time to regulate the periods accordingly. Contraceptive implants or injections may result in missed periods. 

#7 Polycystic Ovary Symptom (PCOS)


PCOS is a hormonal imbalance affecting the estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels. Other effects of PCOS are excessive hair growth on face and chest, potential fertility issues, and difficulty in losing weight. Due to hormonal imbalance, there is no ovulation, and thus no periods.



#8 Illness


If you have fallen sick at the time of your ovulation, chances are you might not ovulate that month. Thus, there might be a delay in your periods.
