Dear customer

Thank you for staying online.

As you have history of irregularity in periods,it is quite possible to have delay in periods.Also as you are diagnosed with benign ovary cyst,this is another common cause of delay in period.

Your period was was suppose to get it the 14th of this month & til today you are still waiting for it,and as you had sex this month about four times,which were protected ,so there is very slim chance of pregnancy.

Stress is another common cause that disturbs the cycle and you can have delay in periods.When you are under stress,adrenal glands secrete a hormone called cortisol.Cortisol has a direct impact on the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and DHEA. This causes irregularity in menstrual cycle and delay in periods.

Most of the time, simply decreasing your stress, improving nutrition and adding adequate nutritional supplements can provide a natural way to restore regular periods.Take plant estrogens (phytoestrogens, isoflavones.Eat healthy & nurtrious.Take nutrious diet containing good amount of iron,calcium,magnesium,multivitamins.

So bot***** *****ne is that there is very slim chance of pregnancy here.You need to wait & watch.

Thank you.

Hope this helped.
