Ladies! This could be the reason behind your delayed periods
If you are on a quest to lose weight, naturally you will be losing fat and according to researches there should be a specific percentage of fat in a woman’s body, to keep the reproductive system working properly. Lack of fat can tamper with the ovulation process, causing delayed or missed periods. If you are trying to lose weight, do not starve yourself or do not lose too much of body fat, reduce it in a moderate manner. Losing a large amount of body fat can cause to hinder the functioning of many organs in your body including your reproductive organ.
Stress, anxiety and emotional distress
Pituitary gland is called the master gland as it controls several hormonal glands like ovaries, thyroid, pancreas and adrenal. Now, hypothalamus is a part of a brain that controls the pituitary gland. Many researchers suggest that in stress and anxiety, the pituitary gland affects the hormone secretion, causing irregular periods. The only solution to this is staying away from the stress triggering factors.
One of the most common and popular causes of delayed periods is hormonal imbalance, such as PCOD (polycystic ovarian disorder), PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), thyroid, estrogen, leptin resistance etc. Such hormonal misbalance do not directly cause irregular periods but they can cause drastic weight shift (weight gain/loss), anxiety and stress, in-turn these can cause one to miss periods.
Too much workout
Working out and exercising is good for health but not when you overdo, as too much of anything is not good for your health. When a lot of energy is used in exercising, there is a lack of energy in other functions of body such as reproductive organs and as a result, you stop bleeding. You can switch to moderate exercising to avoid delayed periods.
