Hi so my friend didn't got her period for 5 days but she also eats one meal a day no pasta and maybe lost weight could that be the cause of late period?

Depends : This could be just a late period, a pregnancy, a diet related issue and not really much of a concern when a period is occasionally late. Make sure she gets an obgyn exam once a year
