Missed period.
I am not on Depression Medication but I have been diagnosed with depression. I am not sexually active and my period is late. Has my depression caused me to miss my period?

Hello,
Delayed or missed period is known as amenorrhea. Apart from pregnancy, there are many other reasons for a delayed period. The other causes are hormonal imbalance like in PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome), stress, depression, obesity, malnutrition, anemia, hypothyroidism, illness, etc.

You should get all these causes ruled out from a gynecologist and start with antidepressants for depression.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing
