How many days can period get delayed normally? And can be handled without any supervision like with vitamin c, or provera (medroxyprogesterone)
Just one time delay?: If worried, doctor can check to see if there is any medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms.

I got periods on 5th may last time.after that spotting occured on 18th.and my next period got on 13th june.is it normal to have 7 days delay ?
Several causes: The spotting that you had on the 18th was probably due to ovulation, since it occurred 13 days after the start of the may 5th menses. I agree that your menses is slightly late, by a week. It is not uncommon for women to have variations in their menses. Weight loss, stress, travel, illness, change in birth control, and new medications can all cause changes in the menses. ...Read more

Not sure...: Your question is difficult to answer - but if i understand, you took "pills" (meaning birth control) for 6 days, and now it's delayed after coming early.... You may not be on a strong enough pill. Talk to your doctor, and they should consider changing you to a stronger hormone. They may also change you to another pill altogether. ...Read more

Got in a car accident, period was delayed 2 days. It was normal, lasted 4/5 days. It's been 5 days since and I'm getting period again and very painful?
Possibly from stress: Car accident can lead to a stressful situation that affects the period and also lead to spotting. If you are not on any birth control pills, then wait for next period to see what happens. I hope that you are using some other form of birth control measures. If you are already on a pill then the problem will usually correct by itself. If problem persists or gets worse, please see your Ob/Gyn. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
