Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

As per your description,possible differential diagnosis of missed period may include perimenopause(hormonal changes due to decrease estrogen levels),thyroid dysfunction,Ovarian cyst.

You should see your gynecologist and undergo Ultrasound whole abdomen and female hormone panel,thyroid function test.

You should do warm compresses with a heating pad on abdominal area.

Also take OTC Advil.

Maintain a good hydration.
