  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    If the periods are delayed or irregular for more than 3 cycles, then a medical examination and investigation is definitely called for.

    Treatment is as per the cause. If the cause is hormonal, medicines to bring the hormone levels to normal is necessary. If conditions like PCOS, or anorexia nervosa is the cause, then appropriate treatment should be started. If tests rule out any underlying abnormalities, and it is diagnosed to be due to stress, exercise, dieting etc. then assurance is all that is necessary.

    Hope this helps.
    Take care!
