Women tend to panic when they miss their periods. The normal menstrual cycle takes place every 28 days and a normal flow will last for 3 to 5 days. Missed periods usually signify pregnancy in sexually active women. But, there are other factors that might delay women's periods.

The normal menstrual cycle is probably affected by abnormal weight gain or if the woman is underweight. Women can visit a gynaecologist and consuming essential vitamins and minerals will help. 

The monthly cycle is disturbed by the hormonal imbalance in your body as a result of stress. 

Women who suffer from PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) might miss their monthly periods and should take treatment accordingly. 

Working out too much can also lower levels of estrogen causing irregular periods.
