Late periods.

I had very frequent and heavy periods two years ago. Then I have had very scanty periods in the past year. Every month the cycle kept on increasing. From 20 days it became 30 days. Thought the bleeding kept on decreasing. Lasting up to one and a half days mostly. Last month I hardly bled. Very less blood with a lot of pain. My last period was on 4th October and this mylonth my period has not come. I took a test and it is negative. I had a problem of small cysts in the ovaries once but then I did not pay much attention to it. Please guide me so as to why my periods are messed so bad?

Hi, if your bmi is high then do certain hormone tests also on 2nd day of period. As your  periods missed, wait for another 7 days then do urine Pregnancy test again.if negative meet gynaecologist and take withdrawal medicine for periods.  As you get your periods do blood test and review. May be its due to pcod etc.

Hello, from the history provided it sounds like PCOS. If there is a recent weight gain or excess stress or tension, this can precipitate this.
Next Steps
Do a sonography pelvis, TSH and prolactin levels. Consult a gynec with the reports.
Health Tips
Weight loss will help if there is an increased weight recently.
