missed period, light spotting, days late what gives?

hello board, i'm 31, have pretty stable periods.  they run about a 30 day cycle. so far i'm 6 days late, no possibility of being pregnant as i have not had sex and i have had the sore breasts, slight cramping etc. all the signs i usually get before my period but nothing.  i have had a few spots of brown blood but that's about it.  i have only missed one period since my cycle began as a teenager, so should i be concerned?  thanks all!

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, obesity, malnutrition, anemia, hypothyroidism, illness, etc. You should consult a gynecologist and get investigated for these causes.

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.
