Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having missed your last period & if pregnancy has been ruled out,then this missed period can be due to various causes.

The most common causes are:stress,being overweight or underweight,imbalance of hormones,polycystic ovarian syndrome/estrogen dominance,uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis).

Stress/anxiety is one of the most common cause that disturbs the female menstrual cycle.

You need clinical examination,testing for thyroid function and other hormone levels. A pelvic exam is required to rule out any uterine abnormality, a cervical polyp or fibroid, or a uterine infection.Also you need an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

There does not seem to be anything serious or dangerous here.

So I advice you to make an appointment with your gynecologist for the clinical examination & tests to find out the root cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Considering your age of 42 years- missing your period can be a symptom of early peri menopause.

Women normally go through perimenopause between ages 45 and 55.

You need hormonal check up for confirmation of diagnosis.A pelvic exam is required to rule out any uterine abnormality, a cervical polyp or fibroid, or a uterine infection.Also you need an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

So you need to consult your gyne doctor for tests & examination to know the underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
