Menstruation 7 reasons you missed your period

7 reasons you missed your period

By Glowpink Staff   

Okay so I know if you are are a teenage and you don’t get period even after 7 days of scheduled date, you are thinking about it all the time. If you had sex during this time, most of the time you are just asking yourself, am I pregnant but pregnancy is not the only cause behind a missed period. There are many other reasons also. Let us discuss them one by one

missed your period 1

#1. Pregnancy

It is most common cause If you are pregnant you will not get period.
If your period is late and you’ve had unprotected sex, take a home pregnancy test. A week after the date you expected your period gives the most accurate results

#2. Stress

Stress can affect your whole body including hormones. When you’re under physical or emotional stress, your body produces the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Elevated levels force the brain to decide which bodily functions are essential and which are nonessential until the stressful event is over. Things like blood flow to the muscles and oxygen to the lungs increase (part of the “fight-or-flight” response you’ve likely heard of), while others, like digestion and the reproductive system, may stop temporarily in extreme cases. When the reproductive cycle is delayed, so is your period.

#3. Weight gain

If your body weight has increased suddenly, it will surely affect your periods. In my case I didn’t get period for 2 months and reason behind that my weight that was 65 kg. I did some exercise and now my weight is 55 Kg and thanks to god, my period is normal again

#4. Excessive workout

Of course working out is good for you. However, when you overdo it (and possibly also restrict meals to lose weight), your body doesn’t produce enough estrogen to complete the menstrual cycle

#5. Breastfeeding

Most of the women do not get periods for 6 months after delivery because they are on breastfeeding and it is perfectly normal. Even doctors say if you are feeding your baby you are not going to periods for few months.

Prolactin — the hormone responsible for breast milk production — also suppresses ovulation.

#6. PCOS

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a condition where the female sex hormones are out of balance. It can cause cysts on the ovaries and prevent ovulation from occurring regularly. In addition to missed or irregular periods, PCOS can also cause excess hair growth, acne, weight gain and possibly infertility.

#7. Thyroid

When the thyroid, the gland responsible for your body’s metabolism, doesn’t function properly, it can cause abnormal menstrual changes. An overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism) can cause periods to be lighter and less frequent; additional symptoms include weight loss, rapid heartbeat, increased sweating and trouble sleeping.
