Customer Question

Hello, I'm 18 years old and my period is very regular. But it is now significantly late and I'm concerned why. I'm a virgin and I'm not stressed or overweight or underweight, so I don't know what to think.
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: No there's no pain, and my periods have been extremely consistent for about 2 years
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nothing I can think of

Periods are dependent on the several hormonal interplay. So just a subtle change may delay or early the period. Factors just like increased physical activity or hormonal aberration due to causes like inadequate sleep, slightly less eating anytime during period cycle may change the menstruation. This does not indicate any medical issue and does not warrant a treatment. The period cycle would become normal spontaneously.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
