Apart from pregnancy, there are other causes of missed or delayed periods also;

1) Ovarian hormone dysfunctions

2) Thyroid hormone abnormalities

3) Stress, anxiety, emotional disorders

4) Sudden weight loss or gain

5) Excessive physical activity

6) Hyperprolactinemia

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 days ago.

Since pregnancy tests are negative, it is ruled out.

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
What do you mean by ruled out ?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 days ago.

It means it is not pregnancy.

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
But what is actually wrong with my period ? Should I be worried?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 days ago.

Thee is nothing to worry about.

To repeat, the period is delayed because;

1) Ovarian hormone dysfunctions

2) Thyroid hormone abnormalities

3) Stress, anxiety, emotional disorders

4) Sudden weight loss or gain

5) Excessive physical activity

6) Hyperprolactinemia
