I started a vegitarian diet 2 months ago. My period normally starts on the hour every month. However the first month, my period started just a few hours early. Now this month my period has not started yet and it was supposed to start yesterday morning. Concidering how strict my cycle usually is, i must say i am getting a little nervous. I plan to take a pregnancy test but i would like to know if anyone else has experienced this issue.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Changes in lifestyle, diet, exercise levels, stress levels can cause changes in hormonal pattern that could affect the period pattern. Usually, a delay of 5-10 days in periods is considered to be normal. If your periods are regular, you need not worry. If the periods are delayed further, or if you experience abnormal periods/bleeding, then consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
