Delayed menstruation

Delayed menstruation

Are you worried about your delayed menses? Find out the reasons of delayed menstruation apart from pregnancy and live a healthy life.

Nandini got her first menses when she was thirteen year old. She had some idea about menstruation cycle. She was finding it difficult to digest the fact that she got it now. According to her she was too young to get it. After completion of her first menstruation she was relieved but scared to face the next menstruation. It was difficult for her to change the mindset that she will get menses in seventh or eight standards as told by her friends.
Her second menstruation was delayed by two months. Going to school during menses was a difficult situation for her. She noticed that her menstruation cycle was not regular. Each time it was delayed by more than fifteen days. When she was in junior college she was shocked as she did not get her menses for two months. But the cycle was restored without any medication. It was regular for the next five years. When she turned twenty she had to face the delayed menstruation again.
Nandini did not want to take medicines for correcting her menses. She preferred waiting to get menses naturally. Was she correct on her part? Now she was sure that every woman has to face such delay in menstruation some time or the other. But she was aware that one reason was pregnancy. However she was trying to find the other reasons as she was not involved in any sexual activity. Read on to know more about delayed menstruation and reasons for it other than pregnancy.
