I take some medicine and vitamins for appetite maybe this is the cause of menstrual late period?

Dexamethasone. I do not know of any vitamins that will affect your menstrual cycle but see that you are taking dexamethasone. This is a powerful medicine with many side effects that is known to disrupt your menstrual cycle (as well as other hormones). I would use this medicine with great caution and discuss other options with your doctor. Consider acupuncture and herbal alternatives. Read more...

Not by much, I don't think. Your body is such a finely integrated machine that I would be reluctant to say it couldn't have ANY affect. Just like even minor illnesses, disruptions in sleep, travel and stress can all impact your period. But water soluble vitamin C, for which any excess is flushed out of your system, should not have had much of an impact. I suggest normal cycle variability. Stay well:) Read more...

Can vitamin C bring a late or missed period?

Sometimes if early. While not widely known, it is claimed that 10-12 grams of vitamin c a day (without bioflavonoids) will induce a miscarriage about 45% of the time if started soon after a missed period. To my knowledge there has been no formal research on this (and i don't expect such research to be done) but there are many reports that it can be effective.

No. There is no evidence to support this idea, and further there is no reason to believe vit c would do this. There are millions of cases of "they say" and "i heard" but that does not make the statements true. Read more...
