I have missed almost three months of my period and I'm a virgin.

I have missed almost 3 months of my period and I'm getting a bit concerned. I've never had sexual intercourse so I know that I shouldn't worry about that. 6 months ago my doctor found a 3-4 cm cyst on my left ovary, and I was wondering if this could be the cause, that they have come back?

Hello Anon,

Thank you for reaching out to EmpowHer today!

A functional ovarian cyst can cause a delayed period. Other symptoms can include pain or aching in your lower belly and also bleeding when you are not having your period. Thyroid problems can also cause your period to be late or even stop them from happening at all. Other reasons for irregular periods can be stress or hormonal imbalance. If you have not seen your doctor recently, I would advise doing so.
