If you are obese : Weight loss may allow for return of periods. If you are very inactive – try regular aerobic activity (at least 4 days per week). If you are severely underweight – an ^in bmi may help to restore periods. If you are an endurance athlete – try cutting back on training. If you have polycystic ovary syndrome, metformin may help. Some birth control pills as well as medications like Progesterone or >.

Late periods : I feel like you may actually be asking if you could be pregnant. It is not uncommon to skip one or more periods altogether. You might be pregnant if you had unprotected sex. Do a pregnancy test if you need to know. Best wishes to you. Do use contraception in the future if you do not want to get pregnant!
