Hello saloni,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. You must schedule an appointment with your gynecologist.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a delicate balance of hormones. Any imbalance results in changes. A thyroid abnormality and fluctuations in estrogen levels during perimenopause are just two reasons for a late period.

Only a physician, who can obtain your medical history, do a physical exam and order blood test, can make the diagnosis.
