Why Are Your Periods Delayed?
Women often experience delayed/irregular periods mainly due to the hormonal imbalance triggered in the ovaries, a side-effect of poor metabolism and poor digestion. This hormonal imbalance, disturbs the normal function of the ovaries resulting in delayed/irregular periods. It is possible that you even might miss your periods for 2 to 4 months.
There are many reasons why the condition of irregular/delayed periods arises. Along with hormonal imbalance, poor digestion and metabolism, faulty diet and lack of exercise, pregnancy is also one of the reasons why your periods are delayed/irregular.
Women mostly take a pregnancy test after their periods are delayed/irregular. When the pregnancy test is negative, you can be sure that your periods are delayed/irregular due to poor period health.
