9 Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Delayed Periods

The menstrual cycle in a female can range from 21 to 35 days, varying from person to person. Periods are considered to be delayed or late when they don’t begin even after 5 or more days from the date they are expected (as per the usual duration of her menstrual cycle). In some cases, the periods may even get delayed by weeks or months altogether. It is normal for the periods to be irregular or delayed in the initial months or year when they first begin (menarche). Delayed periods are also normal in women in the menopausal age. In some cases, delayed periods may also indicate pregnancy.
