I always had regular periods, But for the first time I'm 20 days late. I'm going under treatment for my acne problem Can the medicines given by the dermatologist be the reason behind this ? I'm not involved in any sexual activities either . What can be the reason and should I visit a doctor ?

Your menstrual cycle is under hormonal control. The ovary usually releases one egg (ovulation) each month, and about two weeks after, the uterine lining sheds, resulting in menstruation.However, if ovulation does not occur regularly, the body does not send signals to the uterus to regulate menstruation. Stress, jet lag, lack of sleep and too much exercise can disrupt your hormonal balance and cause a change in your usual menstrual cycle..Consult gynaecologist they will do the needful.
