Question
Posted by: Thandi | 2007/06/24

Delayed menstruation

I am fourteen days late for my periodand I'm starting to get a bit concerned. I have lower back and lower abdominal pain once in a while and sometimes feel sharp stabs of pain coming from that area and from my vagina. I am a virgin, so the possibility of pregnacy isnt there. My periods are very regular, what could possibly be the problem. I am also feeling very bloated.

Dear Thandi
This is often caused by stress, low weight, hormone imbalance, medication or excessive exercising, but can also be due to something like an ovarian cyst or infection. Rather see your GP.
