Hi,
Delayed and irregular cycles are a feature of PCOS and hence this is not a matter of concern. Also absence of menses for 7 days does not suggest early menopause. Consult your Doctor for an examination.
Hope this helps.

thank you! your response is greatly appreciated.
still no sign of menses and another negative HPT. saw the dr. and he said to have a blood test on day 2-3 of my cycle to check for horomone imbalances or possible thyroid problem but I am just not starting. since ive been taking metformin for 2 years now my periods have always been on time up until about 3 months ago but have never been later than 3 days yet, this is the longest cycle ive had since before the medication. so confused. now, ive started with a yeast infection, wondering if something is really wrong. last period was Oct. 23.
