Common Reasons for Late Periods

Missing a period can feel alarming, but pregnancy isn’t the only possible cause of this issue. If you’re wondering if you need to see a gynecologist, then watch this video to learn about some possible reasons why your period is late.

High levels of stress can cause late periods, and being sick or taking medications can affect your menstruation schedule. Also, if you just started or stopped a birth control method, this can cause your period to be late. Drastic changes in weight, too much exercise, a fluctuating cycle, medical disorders, and pregnancy are also possible causes.
