Hi there...I can understand your concern. Yes sometimes heavy workouts can affect the menstrual cycles. But if it is for long duration, then even other causes like pregnancy, anemia, stress, pcod, fibromas, drug intake should be considered. So kindly consult a gynaecologist for further evaluation. Also it is better to take a home urine pregnancy test. It is available at any drug store.
