Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Do a simple pregnancy test. Irrespective of the result of the test you may have to consult your gynecologist.

If this test is negative then other causes of delayed or missed periods will have to be looked at such as stress whether emotional or physical, hypothyroidism, polycystic disease of the ovary, pituitary tumors secreting prolactin, anemia and poor diet, hormonal imbalance, unexplained or sudden weight gain or weight loss.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Take care!
