Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


Why haven't I menstruated in a month, despite never missing a period? Three negative pregnancy tests after unprotected sex and a change in gym attendance what could be causing the delay?


Answered by Dr. Mini Sood


Thank you for reaching out to Dr.Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


1.Stress: Emotional or physical stress can impact the regularity of menstrual cycles. Changes in gym attendance or intense physical exercise can contribute to stress on the body.

2.Changes in Exercise Routine: A sudden change in your exercise routine, including increased intensity or frequency, can affect hormonal balance and menstrual cycles.

3.Weight Changes: Significant weight loss or gain can disrupt hormonal balance and lead to irregular menstrual cycles.

4.Hormonal Imbalance: Fluctuations in hormones, such as those related to thyroid function or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), can affect menstruation.

5.Medication: Some medications can impact menstrual cycles. If you've started or stopped any medication recently, it may be a contributing factor.
