Respected Customer,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem and I know how worrisome this situation can be for you but hopefully, we can resolve this.

Such symptoms can be related to the underlying issue and have to be further evaluated.

Possible causes are-

-Stress- This can be one of the main reasons for late or skipped periods.

-Sudden weight loss.

-Extreme over-exercising.

-The overactive thyroid-Thyroid disease can interfere with your cycle.

-Being overweight or obese: Excess weight or weight gain can cause your body to produce too much estrogen, which can affect your menstrual cycle.

-Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

-Hormonal imbalance.

You can follow the below measures-

- You can take some time to relax, get regular exercise, or even do some breathing exercises to manage your stress.

-Practice Yoga and Meditation. Try to remain away from stress. Keep yourself busy with your hobbies.

-You can top up your meals with vitamin D from fatty fish, such as salmon and tuna. Sun exposure, would also be helpful. Getting enough vitamin D may also support a healthy menstrual cycle.

-You can, make sure that your diet includes green vegetables, fruits, dry fruits, red meat, fish, and foods that give you complete nutrients regularly. Soy products, legumes, flaxseed, sesame seeds, olive oil, kale, celery, and dry fruits are some of the best food sources to get estrogen.

-You can include Cinnamon in Your Diet, It helps to regulate the flow of blood and is of great help.

In my opinion, you would need a Pelvic examination to assess the condition of the cervix and investigations like TVS Ultrasound for further evaluation.

Blood work to check hormone levels can be done for diagnosis.

You need to have a blood hormonal levels checkup. This includes:

1. Serum Estrogen level,

2. Serum progesterone level

3. Serum FSH level

4. Serum prolactin level

Hormonal imbalance is also one of the most common causes of such symptoms and can be managed with medications.

Your doctor can prescribe hormonal pills, to regulate the menstrual cycle.

Treatments may include the contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

You can try OTC simethicone to reduce such symptoms. This would be helpful.

Lifestyle habits such as meal timings, regular sleep timings, and most importantly regular bowel movements are also important. Some amount of physical activity is essential for the efficient functioning of your digestive system.

You can Try drinking about 30 minutes before a meal to help your stomach digest better. You should Eat and Drink Slowly.

Probiotics may also be useful in treating flatulence.
You should get engaged in aerobic exercise and stress-management techniques like deep breathing and yoga.
It is advised that you should eat six small meals a day rather than three large ones. Smaller meals are easier to digest and may produce less gas.
Take Syp. Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals.

A thorough clinical evaluation has to be done by your doctor.

Please start with your primary doctor and get it managed.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if you want to discuss this further.

Get well soon!

Because my body comes on different dates could it be possible im pregnant
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I do eat meals i have like one a day I am stressed dealing with my son with autism I work nights

As you have periods, on 3rd August, and it was normal bleeding for 4-5 days, so chances for pregnancy are very slim.

Most likely, this is from hormonal imbalance.

You would need to get a hormone test, done as we discussed.

For peace of mind, you can get a home pregnancy test done.

I understand the stress with such issues and regarding night shifts.

For stress-related issues, please follow the below tips-

-Please avoid caffeine, alcohol.

-Please get engaged in aerobic exercise and stress-management techniques like deep breathing and yoga.

-You can laugh more or watch a comedy or read a funny book.

-Connect with friends and family.

-You can go to meditating and yoga, it would quiet your mind.

Please try to follow changes, as we discussed, and would get good results.
