5 Unknown Causes of Late Menstruation
Delayed menstruation is not always a sign of pregnancy because other situations such as excessive stress, very strong emotions, hormonal changes or even excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol can lead to delayed menstruation.
Generally, this delay in menstruation can last from 3 days to 1 or 2 months, and it is recommended to consult the doctor if the absence lasts more than 5 days, so that the cause can be identified and treated.
However, if there has been unprotected intimate contact a few days before, you are likely to be pregnant and it is recommended to have a home pregnancy test that can be purchased at a pharmacy to find out if you are pregnant.
Late menstruation and home pregnancy test turned negative
If your period is delayed and you have performed at least 2 pregnancy tests in the last month, with 8 to 10 days between the intervals between the test, you are very likely not pregnant and the delay in menstruation may be caused by other such as:
1. Excessive physical activity as with athletes or people in preparation for some competition or sporting competition.
2. Very restrictive diets.
3. Poor diet or eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia.
4. Excessive stress.
5. Hormonal changes caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, fibroid or even by the morning after pill.
These situations can lead to absence of menstruation for more than 3 months and it is recommended that you consult your doctor if this happens.
In addition, some birth control pills may also be responsible for menstruation, being in these cases it is normal not to have menstruation.
