Reasons for Missed Period When You’re Not Pregnant

reasons for missed periodWhat are the reasons for a missed period when you’re not pregnant? For most women, a missed period is typically the first sign of pregnancy. But what can cause a missed period (or a late period) if you’re not pregnant? There are many reasons that cause your period to be late. 

(You may also like to read about PMS or Pregnancy? A related article that compares PMS symptoms to the very first pregnancy signs.)

Normal Menstrual Cycles & Lengths

In general, a woman can expect to have 11 to 13 menstrual periods every year. That is, if you have a regular menstrual cycle that runs like clockwork, month after month. An average period can last anywhere from three to five days; it can be shorter or longer than this, but it’s typically no longer than 7 days or a week.

A textbook menstrual cycle is 28 days (from one period to the next; this is the average length of a period or menstrual cycle). However, it is very common for adult women to have menstrual cycles that range anywhere 21 to 35 days.

Teenagers – keep in mind that the first couple of years after your period starts, it’s normal to have long cycles (longer than 35 days). In adolescents and teenagers, a menstrual cycle can range anywhere between 21 and 45 days and still be considered normal.

Because there is variability for cycles, if you have a period that falls outside of the 35 day mark, don’t automatically assume the worse. Menstrual cycles can vary each month – a day or two late here, or a few days early there – for a number of reasons. As long as you have a period every month, you are probably fine. However, you will probably want to make an appointment with a gynecologist to get checked out if your cycle is over 40 days. My motto is that it’s always better to be safe than sorry!

Remember that what’s considered “normal” for one woman may be very different for another woman. If you ever have concerns, talk to your healthcare provider.

Causes for Missed Periods (Amenorrhea)

Most irregular periods and missed periods are typically benign and do not signal anything serious. They are often caused by a hormonal imbalance (your menstrual cycle works in conjunction to a delicate balance of hormones), and this imbalance is easily treated under the supervision and medical guidance of your doctor or healthcare provider.

So, it is normal to miss a period occasionally. A missed period should be examined in terms of what’s normal for your individual case.

Doctors and healthcare providers usually don’t worry about a missed period or two or three unless it becomes a pattern. It is highly recommended that you see a healthcare provider if you miss more than three periods – either consecutively (one right after the other) or three missed periods during the course of one calendar year. This might be a cause of concern.

A missed period, or an absence of a menstrual period is called amenorrhea in the medical world. Doctors have classified amenorrhea into two categories:

    • Primary Amenorrhea – You’re 15 years old, and your periods haven’t started yet.This can be caused by conditions you were born with but aren’t noticed until you hit puberty – such as genetic or chromosomal abnormalities and problems with your reproductive organs. These might include being born without a uterus, or a uterus that did not develop normally. In some cases, the causes of secondary amenorrhea can also cause you to have primary amenorrhea.
    • Secondary Amenorrhea – Your periods have suddenly stopped for more than three months, and you’ve had menstrual periods in the past.This is the most common form of missed periods, or amenorrhea.Secondary amenorrhea will be discussed in this article. Common causes for it include pregnancy, ovarian problems (like polycystic ovary syndrome and early menopause), pituitary tumors, stress and anxiety, having to little or too much body weight, and other reasons for missed periods.Usually, doctors will not diagnose you with secondary amenorrhea until you’ve skipped three periods in a row.

In addition to amenorrhea, there’s another medical term that you should be familiar with – Oligomenorrhea. This is a medical term for women who experience fewer than eight menstrual periods each year, or infrequent menstrual periods. The same causes for secondary amenorrhea can cause oligomenorrhea. However, most women with oligomenorrhea have polycystic ovary syndrome.

If you are ever worried about missing your period, take a home pregnancy test and make an appointment with your healthcare provider and seek answers!

Reasons for Missed Period When Not Pregnant

Pregnancy – The # 1 Reason for a Missed Period

Preseed Sperm Friendly Lubricant trying to conceiveSo what are the common causes of a missed period?

In a majority of cases, if you have normal menstruation – you have your period without fail every single month – and you’ve missed your period, you are more than likely pregnant.

Here’s the reason – during your menstrual cycle, around the second week (day 7 to 14 before ovulation), your uterine lining grows thick with blood and nutrients in preparation to receive a fertilized egg. When there is no fertilized egg after ovulation, the blood-rich uterine lining, unfertilized egg, and all the tissues break down and gets shed from your body – this is your period.

So if you miss your period, and you’ve always had normal menstrual cycles and regular periods, you should get it checked out as you have a high chance of being pregnant. Having a missed period might mean that your thick uterine lining has received a fertilized egg, and a baby is growing inside your womb.

Despite popular misconception, there is absolutely no possibility of having your period during pregnancy. You can experience spotting, or light vaginal bleeding here and there when you’re pregnant, which can be confusing and trick you into thinking you are having a period, but it’s not a menstrual period. (Read my related article – Implantation Bleeding or Period?).

So if you’ve missed a period, always assume that you could be pregnant. Take a home pregnancy test and schedule an appointment with your doctor, gynecologist, or healthcare provider to confirm or deny that you are pregnant.

(Helpful Tip: Not all home pregnancy tests are created equal. Some are more sensitive than others. After researching HPTs and their sensitivities to hCG, the pregnancy hormone, I would recommend First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test. It’s one of the most sensitive home pregnancy tests you can find (hCG levels at 25mIU/ml), and may even detect pregnancy after the fertilized egg implants. The packaging on any over-the-counter pregnancy test will tell you how sensitive they are. The lower the number of mIU/ml, the more sensitive it is to the hCG hormone that detects pregnancy.)

Reasons for Missed Period if Negative Pregnancy Test

So you’ve tested for pregnancy and got a negative pregnancy test, what are the other reasons for a missed period when you’re not pregnant?

Your missed period may be a result of one of the following common reasons for a missed or late period:


Anovulation (You Don’t Ovulate) – Most Common Reason for Missed Period

Ovulation problems account for 30 percent of infertility cases, and they are one of the most common common reasons for a missed period. A majority of women who seek fertility help because they are not ovulating. A menstrual cycle in which your ovaries don’t release a mature egg and you don’t ovulate is called anovulation.

Anovulation (or not ovulating) can be caused by a wide range of problems – many of these causes are discussed later in this article. They include polycystic ovarian syndrome to thyroid problems to stress and anxiety. Long term use of hormonal birth control – which disrupt ovulation and prevent it from occurring – can also cause anovulation.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome accounts for 70 percent of anovulation cases.


Stress and Anxiety – Another Reason for Missed Periods

Being stressed is never good for your health or your body, and it can cause a variety of problems, everything from lowering your immune response to affecting your cardiovascular health. Stress is also one of the reasons for a missed period.

Because your menstrual cycle is regulated by a delicate and complex balance of hormones, anything that can alter the release of those hormones will also affect your periods. Stress interferes with the regular functioning of the hypothalamus in the brain; the “command center” of the brain that produces hormones that regular your menstrual cycle, sex drive, moods and emotions, and other functions.

When you are stressed, your body perceives danger (“fight or flight” response) and it sends a warning call to your hypothalamus – the command center of the brain that uses the autonomic nervous system to communicate with the rest of your body. So basically, the hypothalamus sets off a “Danger! Danger! Danger!” alarm in your body. The hypothalamus sends this alarm to your pituitary gland, which then secretes a hormone called adrenocorticotropic hormone, which in turn stimulates your adrenal glands to release cortisol (commonly referred to as the “stress hormone”) and adrenaline.

It is all a very complicated process, but the activation of the body’s stress response can disrupt your body’s normal processes – like the regulation of your menstrual cycle. Your body is so focused on handling the perceived danger that other normal bodily functions get put on the back burner.

So, for example, it is very commonly known that stress delays ovulation. The pituitary gland – which is very involved with how your body handles stress – releases the luteinizing hormone (LH) and the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which are both crucial hormones during your menstrual cycle. FSH plays an important role in helping your egg mature in the ovary, and LH is the hormone that triggers the mature egg’s release from the ovary during ovulation. This process is super complicated, but when the pituitary gland is too preoccupied with handling your body’s stress, this can cause you to either have a delayed or late ovulation, or no ovulation that month at all. And when you have a later than normal ovulation, you will have a delayed period (or a menstrual period that occurs much later in the month than you expected). If you happen to not ovulate that month, due to stress levels, you will have a missed period, no period at all.

For all of these reasons, being stressed is a very common reason for missed periods, delayed or late periods, and more painful periods. In a nutshell, stress just screws up your periods.


Overweight, Underweight, and Weight Problems

If you have lost a substantial amount of weight recently, or on the other hand, you’ve gained some weight too fast, this is another common reason for a missed period when you’re not pregnant. Weight gain and weight loss are common causes for menstrual problems, such as a late period or a missed period.

For your body to have a healthy, normal menstrual cycle, you have to have a balance of body fat – not too much and not too little. Being overweight (too fat) and being underweight (too skinny) can cause you to have irregular periods. Your body’s fat cells are responsible for your estrogen production. Estrogen plays a crucial role, along with luteinizing hormone and the follicle-stimulating hormone, to help the eggs in your follicle mature and then get released from the ovaries.

So if you don’t have enough fat cells, you may not ovulate due to not enough estrogen production, and you may have missed periods and irregular menstrual cycles. Similarly, being overweight can also affect your menstrual cycle.

Overweight women have an excess of fat cells in their body, which causes too much estrogen to be produced. Unfortunately, with these high levels of this female hormone, your body might react to this overabundance of estrogen like it’s birth control. As a result, you may not ovulate every month, which means you will have missed periods on a regular basis, or you may have no periods at all. It is also possible that you go months without having your period.

Too many fat cells and too much estrogen can cause many obese and overweight women to suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – a condition in which your body produces too much estrogen and too much androgens (male hormones). PCOS has a genetic component to it, so you are more likely to have the condition if other women in your family have suffered from it. Women with PCOS tend to either have no periods at all, or heavy, irregular periods that can be painful. PCOS can cause infertility and small cysts to grow on the ovaries.


Contraceptives and Hormonal Birth Control

If you are taking hormonal birth control pills, it is not uncommon for you to experience light periods or no period at all – a missed period. If you’ve been taking your pills religiously and you miss your period, you are probably not pregnant, but if you are worried, take a home pregnancy test.

Some of the newer birth control pills on the market today – such as Lybrel, Seasonale, Seasonique, Yasmin, Yaz – are combination birth control pills, which change your menstrual cycle regularity. Missed periods are common with these hormonal contraceptives.

Lybrel, for example, is one of the first extended-cycle oral contraceptives, which gives you an active dose of hormones every day, and this birth control pill will stop you from having a period indefinitely, as long as you take it, because it inhibits ovulation. It purposely causes missed period. No ovulation; no period. Lybrel, however, does come with the risk of breakthrough bleeding and spotting when you least expect it.

With the other extended cycle birth control pills, you will still have a period but not as often. For example, with Seasonique, you only have four periods each year, because each pack will last you three months, and you should experience your period the last week of the pack. Like with the other birth control pills, you will experience spotting and bleeding between periods – called breakthrough bleeding. Seasonale also only gives you four years each year.

You have a monthly period with Yaz, but it’s a shorter and lighter menstrual flow. Yasmin also gives you a lighter, monthly period.

Keep in mind, however, that when you stop using birth control pills, sometimes it can take some women anywhere from one to two months to up to half a year before you become fertile again, because their bodies have to re-adjust to being without the hormones. Some women are fertile right away, but for others, it can definitely take awhile before your body re-adjusts to its normal hormones and functions.

Ovulation and menstruation can sometimes take a few months (or longer) before they return to normal. So you can expect missed periods during this transition.

Other hormonal birth control methods, such as the birth control shot (Depo-Provera) and the birth control implant (Implanon and Nexplanon) can cause you to have irregular periods and missed periods.

The Depo-Provera birth control method can cause you to experience irregular menstrual bleeding. In fact, irregular menstrual periods and no periods at all (missed period) is a common side effect of the birth control shot. In addition, it is common in 50 percent of cases; women who get regular birth control injections will stop having their periods after a year of use. However, if you are planning to start a family in the near future, you should probably think about avoiding the Depo-Provera injection. Although some women can get pregnant three to four months after their last injection, it can take other women up to one or two years after they stop getting the injections before they can get pregnant.


Breastfeeding and Missed Periods

Aden and Anais Stretch Mark Reducing CreamBreastfeeding is another common reason for missed periods. When you are breastfeeding exclusively – meaning your baby is not getting his or her food source from anything else but your breast milk – this will usually delay your periods from returning.

You may have heard that breastfeeding is considered a natural form of birth control; this is why.
Prolactin, the hormone that stimulates your milk production, decreases your level of estrogen, so you do not ovulate. This breastfeeding hormone also affects luteinizing hormone (LH) secretion in your body; a critical hormone that triggers ovulation. As a result, you will experience irregular and missed menstrual periods when you are exclusively breastfeeding.

An estimated 80 percent of women who choose to bottle feed their babies will get their periods back after 10 weeks of delivery. If you are breastfeeding, you will experience more of a delay in the return of your periods. It could be ten weeks or one year, depending on each woman. However, on average, it takes breastfeeding moms about six months to become fertile again. This doesn’t always mean that your period has returned; it just means you’re fertile.

Your menstrual periods will return sooner when you aren’t feeding your baby as much. Maybe your infant has started to eat solid foods, or you’re supplementing with formula instead of exclusively breast milk.

If you are worried about getting pregnant again, start using birth control. Pay attention to your cervical mucus. Get some hormone tests performed at your doctor’s office to see if you are ovulating, but just not having your period yet.

It’s common for you to have irregular cycles and missed periods for the first couple of months after your period returns, after having a baby.


Pituitary Tumors (Non-Cancerous Tumors)

Although the word “tumor” is pretty scary, pituitary tumors are non-cancerous and benign tumors that affect your pituitary gland – the area that produces the hormones FSH and LH around ovulation. These benign tumors can cause irregular periods and missed periods in pre-menopausal women.

The tumors are called prolactinomas, and they cause your pituitary gland to produce higher than normal levels of the hormone prolactin (the hormone that stimulates your breast milk production). Yes, non-pregnant women still produce prolactin and men do too. Scientists don’t know why, but everyone does produce this hormone.

High levels of prolactin in your blood can interfere with your ovary function and cause you to have a lower level of estrogen in your body. As a result, it’s common for you to have missed periods, irregular periods, and infertility. You may also produce breast milk, though you’re not breastfeeding.

If you have a prolactinoma, you may also start to experience menopausal symptoms, like hot flashes.


Eating disorders

Eating disorders are life-threatening, dangerous conditions that can affect not only your menstrual cycles, but also your overall health. Whether you have anorexia nervosa, and you are starving yourself because you think you are too “fat,” or you have bulimia nervosa, where you are vomiting to lose weight, you should know that this has disastrous effects on your reproductive health.

When you have excessively low body weight (i.e. you’re way too skinny), this can interfere with hormonal functions, which might stop ovulation. These abnormal hormonal changes are the reason that anorexics and bulimics often stop having periods.

When you’re too thin (due to anorexia or excessive weight loss), you don’t have enough fat cells in your body to produce enough estrogen for healthy ovulation. You don’t ovulate, and you will either have a missed period or irregular periods. (Or no periods at all).

Remember that your body needs a certain number of fat cells in order for ovulation and menstruation to take place. When you are way too skinny and have a very low body weight, because of anorexia, everything in your body slows down. Your reproductive organs will shut down, and you will not ovulate and you will not have your periods.



Rigorous Exercise

Women who participate in activities and sports that require them to undergo rigorous training often experience skipped periods or no periods at all. The high energy expenditure, stress, and low body fat can contribute to no ovulation and missed periods.


There are some medications that can disrupt menstrual cycles. For example, some chemotherapy drugs, anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, and oral corticosteroids can cause you to have missed periods, or no menstrual periods at all.

Hormonal Imbalance

As you read under “Stress and Anxiety,” your menstrual cycle is dependent on a fine orchestra of hormones. More specifically, it requires the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis to be functioning correctly. The hypothalamus in the brain produces gonadotrophin-releasing hormone, which send a message to the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland produces the most important hormones crucial to ovulation and your menstrual period – luteinizing hormone (LH) and the follicle-stimulating (FSH). In response to LH and FSH, the ovaries produce estrogen. All work together in a beautiful symphony to create ovulation and your period every month.

If anything goes wrong in this orchestra of hormones, and you have a hormonal imbalance, it will screw up your menstrual cycle. For example, if there isn’t a LH surge to help that mature egg erupt from the follicle, you will not ovulate and you will have a missed period that month. Similarly, you might have too much estrogen in your body, and this can also cause you to miss your period.

The common hormonal problem that causes missed periods is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). It has been mentioned numerous times in this article, because it is one of the most common reasons for missed periods. With PCOS, your body produces high levels of estrogen and the male hormone, androgen (yes, women produce this hormone too). Missed periods are quite common with PCOS.

Perimenopause, in detail below, is also an example of a hormonal imbalance that can lead to missed periods.


Perimenopause & Early Menopause

Menopause is a normal event in every woman’s life and usually takes place sometime between age 45 and 55. When you hit menopause, this is considered the end of your reproductive life. You stop having periods, and you are no longer able to have children. Menopause is a gradual evolution – you don’t stop having periods overnight. It starts with perimenopause (also called menopause transition), which takes place a couple of years before you hit full-blown menopause.

For some women, their menopausal transition is only two or three years; others may go through perimenopause for ten years. The average length of menopausal transition is about four years, but this can vary. There is no exact time period for perimenopause and no official “start” and “stop” of perimenopause. Often it is even hard for doctors to tell whether or not you’re in your transition (unless they do extensive testing, and even with testing your hormones in your blood, you may not get a concrete answer).

Because your ovaries start to produce less estrogen during perimenopause, it is common to have irregular periods and you may also start to experience common menopausal symptoms – such as hot flashes and decreased sex drive. Your PMS symptoms may also get worse.

Perimenopause can cause your periods to become very wonky. Your cycle can change dramatically. You may have really heavy periods one month, and a lighter period the next. It is also common for your periods to get closer together. Missing your period is also common with perimenopause.

However, never assume that your missed period is related to perimenopause if you’re in your 40s. You can still get pregnant during this time, so take a home pregnancy test just to be sure.

If you are under age 40 and you are starting to miss your period, or your menstrual cycle is becoming irregular, early menopause might be to blame in some cases.

Early menopause – or menopause that occurs before you reach 40 years old – may be the result of certain medical treatments, such as a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy (when both your ovaries are removed), or it can just occur on its own. When early menopause just happens, doctors diagnose you with a condition called primary ovarian insufficiency (also known as premature ovarian failure).

With primary ovarian insufficiency, your ovaries either stop releasing eggs (you stop having periods), or they release them intermittently; not on a regular basis (you’ll have missed periods and irregular menstrual cycles). You will have a period when an egg is released and you ovulate, but on the months that your ovaries don’t release any eggs, you will miss your period.

With early menopause, your body either stops producing the hormones needed for menstruation – such as estrogen and progesterone, or it only produces it intermittently on the months that an egg is released.

Because of these ovarian problems, it can be hard for you to conceive when you are in early menopause. It’s not impossible, but it is harder to conceive, because you just never know when you are ovulating. Only 5 to 10 percent of women with primary ovarian insufficiency are able to conceive normally. Other women have to go through in vitro fertilization using donor eggs in order to get pregnant.


Problems with your thyroid

– Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) can cause you to have missed periods and other menstrual irregularities. Thyroid disorders can alter the production of the hormone prolactin. This affects your hypothalamus and disrupts your regular menstrual cycle.

Uterine scarring

– If your uterus is scarred from disease or medical procedures, this can prevent the normal buildup and shedding of the uterine lining common to a regular menstrual cycle. As a result, you may have very light periods, or no menstrual periods at all. Your uterus can become scarred during a cesarean section, D & C procedure, treatment for uterine fibroids, or due to a health complication.

Traveling and Jetlag

–  Traveling and jet lag can easily throw the most predictable 28-day cycle into an unpredictable one.  Traveling is a lot of fun, but it can also come with a crazy ton of stress. From the frenzy of preparing for your trip to actually traveling, knowing exactly where to go and what to do on each day of your travels, this stress level can have a crazy influence on your menstrual cycle.

Not to mention, when you are traveling, you don’t have the same eating habits. If you are normally nutritionally conscious, that can go out the window as you indulge in the culinary fare of the area you’re in.

Your exercise and physical activity level also changes. If you work out regularly, you may not have time for this when you are traveling. And if you are usually a sloth at home, your travels may cause you to increase your exercise levels, and this rapid lifestyle change (albeit it’s temporary) can affect your periods.

Traveling also comes with jet lag. New sleep schedules can great affect your circadian rhythm, which affects your body’s regular systems. In fact, did you know that studies have shown that many flight attendants (who travel all the time) experience irregular menstrual cycles (late and missed periods) due to jet lag and their circadian rhythms being off?

How to Cope When You Miss a Period

If you have missed your period, but you’re only a week late, try not to stress out. There’s a possibility that your period is just late. Obviously, you should take a home pregnancy test (or two or three) to ensure that you’re not pregnant.

Contact your healthcare provider and make an appointment to see your doctor. You may be asked to undergo a variety of tests and examines to pinpoint why you’ve missed your period.

Your treatment will depend on what’s causing you to miss your menstrual period. Your doctor may prescribe medication to help treat you, or he may recommend that you make certain lifestyle changes.

The bottom line is – don’t stress out if you have a missed period. Some women miss their periods now and then. Chances are your period will return next month.

    I have always had regular periods and with that said I had a period last month in September, it lasted 3 or 4 days. I must mention that I had a baby April 1st and tried to breastfeed so my periods were off plus I took the Depo shot in late April but only that 1 time.

    I had a miscarriage back in 2014 and have had regular period ever since until August 2016. I haven’t had a period since August 1st and I’ve been having sore boobs, nausea, headaches, hot flashes, you name it, all the early signs. Took 2 hpt and they were both negative. Started cramping early this morning and came on my period, October 1st. So I have no idea as to what’s going on or what went on. I went to the doctor and everything came back normal, no idea for my missed period. I’m 25 and ready to have my first baby but my period only brought me sadness because we thought I was pregnant. Good luck to you ladies and lots of baby dust!!!

    • Carissa October 4, 2016, 11:44 am

      The exact same thing is happening to me. I got my period the same as you and I’m 15 almost 16. I’ve always had heavy flows but always regular and the last few months have been irregular. I’ve heard from multiple people that it’s something that happens in teens because of stress. But go to the doctor if you miss 2 or 3 periods, that’s what I’m watching out for.

    hi, i had frequent sex with my boyfriend for over a year, with condoms only.
    i recently went 2-3 months without getting my period, can you help me determine what went wrong?
    in my past, when i very first got my period, i would go months at a time without anything. then, at age 16 it started becoming more regular. then these 2-3 months of nothing. i was worried i was pregnant, but i took a pregnancy test and it was negative. today i got my period.

  • Mia September 14, 2016, 12:05 pm

    Hi i am 18 years old and I am not sure if i’m pregnant or am just late on my period. I went on a cruise exactly one month ago and had sex with someone I met but I’m 99% positive he did not cum in me. I was supposed to get my period exactly 1 week ago and I haven’t gotten it. But starting two days ago I thought i got my period because after I would pee and clean myself there would be some blood but no blood in my pee. I also have somewhat of a brown discharge and I have gotten it before but usually before I get my period and not this much. I also started some weight loss medication about 2 weeks ago..I don’t know if that has anything to do with it. Can you please help me and advice me on what I should do.

    • Laurie September 19, 2016, 12:38 am

      You do know that even if the guy didn’t com in you, you might be pregnant, right? There is sperm in the pre-ejaculation liquid (or wathever it’s called). You should go see a gynecologist, even if it is only of the blood you see…

  • Chrissy September 12, 2016, 8:52 pm

    Hi, I’m 18. I first had my period at 13 and it never regulated. I would be late for a few weeks then probably a month. There was even a time I missed it for 2 months. Currently it is September and I haven’t seen it since May. I have been to a doctot who told me this is somewhat normal. I’ m beginning to think not cause now i have frequent headaches, lack of concentration, fatigue and dizziness. Any advice?

  • Viv September 3, 2016, 9:35 pm

    I am a virgin and have perfectly regular periods (28 days) and cramps. Cramps comes a week before period. But now, in the past few days I haven’t had my period and no cramping. I do feel a bit sick and I have since my cramps were supposed to come. I’m a bit worried if there is something wrong with me. I am 17 years old and my period started when I was 11 1/2.

  • JENIFER MAKILAN September 1, 2016, 11:49 pm

    Hi, I gave birth 9 months ago, I have normal periods until last May 2016, and now, I am 3 months delayed, i check using Pregnancy Test Kit to know if I am pregnant, but it clearly shows negative. I also have discharge regularly (a sort of yeast infection) , can you give me advise on this. Whenever i consult public doctors they don’t see this case urgent. Thank you in advance.

  • SunnySky August 30, 2016, 10:00 am

    My period stopped after I was prescribed waaaaay too much testosterone. Last period was May 2015, but I didn’t know about the too high T level until early November 2015. It is now August 2016, and still no period. Yes, I’m 54 years old, but I was regular as clock work until insurance stopped covering compound prescriptions, April 2015, (included my progesterone & testosterone scripts). Alternative was to inject testosterone cypionate, .25, each week. It was later I realized my husband was scripted the same, but .5. Mine was half of his! No wonder! Chin hairs, breaking out on my back…. no period. Yep, that’s another reason for a missed period. In my case, it’s been 15 months!

  • anny August 29, 2016, 11:07 pm

  • Michelle August 21, 2016, 9:27 pm

    Never really had regular periods before. Had the mirena for 5 years and then had it removed. Ever since my period has been more irregular. It would show up a week later every month. But now I haven’t had my period since July 1st. I took a pt test today and it said negative. I don’t know what’s wrong. Please help!

  • Bara August 12, 2016, 5:16 am

    My period been gone 5 almost 6 months. Been to 5 or 6 doctors they dont know. All they can say is am not pregnant. Nothing has really changed with me. 27 years old started when i was 12 years old. Yes am overweigh but always have been and i weigh less than my top weight. I have thryriod problems but right now first time ever there normal(thats new for me) ive had 4 pregnancy first miscarried 2 and 3 was twin births then a misscarried 2 years ago. The woman in my family keep having kids up till there 40s or something happens and something happens and doctors stop there periods for some reason or aother. My period was always 21 to 24 a part and would be as long as 7 days very heavy. My iron would drop so long i had to becare and eat lots of iron rich foods and take iron pills. Most the doctors i seen was more worried about my heavy periods and wanted to know why i never came in for that than my missing periods. My first period was 6 days and i bleed thro 3 big pads in an hour its always been my normal. My doctor as a child said i was bleeding like i hhada baby didnt get it till i had kids but she was right my periods r just like after u have a baby but lastt only up to 7 days not weeks. I just want answers and i tired of going to doctor to doctor. If my periods have stopped fine if there something wrong lets fix it. Thats all i want. Any ideas what could it be? They did do one scan last month nothing shown up to be abnormal.

    Really enjoyed reading your Article it helped me understand more. Thanks Linda

  • Sereena August 3, 2016, 6:57 am

    I used to have normal periods but now..my periods are always irregular . Now, it has been more than 2 months since I had my last period.It’s scary. any suggestions???? I didn’t have sex.

  • Oma Benson August 3, 2016, 5:41 am

    I noticed my period has been regular and late for sometime now and I cant help being worried. I have had 2 surgeries for Fibroid, never pregnant non married. My period is late again by 4 days, no signs of it coming, lately it hasn’t been giving me the usual signs. Please do tell what you think may be wrong…fingers crossed its not menopause…Please God, not yet!!!

  • Charley August 2, 2016, 3:35 pm

    My menstrual cycle has always been as regular as clockwork. My period arrives every 28 days and I can even tell when that middle of the month, ovulation time is upon me. The most I’ve ever gone overdue is three days, but otherwise than that, it has always been regular. Last month, I had all the customary feelings of my period coming on, I stocked up on tampons and pads. It arrived – or seemed to – on the due date. It was lightish pink in colour, but it has often started that way, and usually by the second day, the flow is moderate to heavy. Strangely, apart from some pink staining for about three days, no proper period arrived. I continued to experience symptoms similar to PMT and began to retain so much water that I looked pregnant. The water retention went away by itself. I’d also like to mention that I’m under a lot of stress and suffering severe anxiety. My GP tried to assure me that stress caussed my period to be almost non-existent. He told me that my cycle would regularise. It was due yesterday, and although I have all the symptoms of it being close, I have not shed one single drop of blood. I cannot be pregnant as I haven’t had sex in two years. My doc also ruled out premature menopause (I’m in my thirties) as he said there would be other symptoms in the build up to a missed period. I’m really terrified that there’s something serious wrong. To go from being completely regular to this is so frightening. I haven’t experienced hot flushes or any other symptom linked to premature menopause. I never thoguht I’d hear myself say this, but I just want to get my period as normal.

  • Anymonus July 31, 2016, 10:58 pm

    Im 14 and had a regular period for about 2 or 3 years and i missed my period this month my mom and brother keep asking and saying im Preagnent and i said to them i never had sex so its not possible so i looked at this article and im under overweight and underweight/ stress and axity i have both so im gonna send this to my mom to look at so she believes im not preanent cuz when my brother said i was preagnent i freaked out and cried because im like what if…. but I couldn’t be but then i began to worry so i just decided too look this up

  • Kat July 28, 2016, 11:11 pm

    I am super irregular. I was regular like clockwork for about 6 years, but then I was under a TONNNN of stress in 2011, and this- I’m told- has affected my adrenal glands to the point where I’ve essentially broken them.

    Now I miss multiple periods a year, and they often come without warning. Sometimes I have two periods in one month; that’s rough. That happened last time I had a period. Now it’s been a month and a half, almost two, and I’m late again. Though, like I said, it could show up any day! I just carry feminine products wherever I go and hope for the best (though it usually starts at 7am, so I’m not usually any place important at that time).

    But birth control was useless, so my only help is to continue taking my supplements for my adrenal glands. I’ve been tested for just about everything, and that’s the only cause anyone can find.

    And no, I’m not pregnant. I’m a virgin and a lesbian; good luck.

  • sally July 27, 2016, 8:15 am

    hi,im so worried right now because im afraid to get pregnant…im taking contraceptive pills for almost 10 years.,i took off pills for just 2 weeks,and now i still dont have my menstruation,i just want to know if there is a possibility that im pregnant?I haven’t tried to use a pregnancy test,coz im so worried.I just need to know why my menstruation stop.Thank you in advance.

    • Sassy July 31, 2016, 7:34 am

      When I stop taking the pill myself, I didn’t have a period for about a two months. I knew I was pregnant because I been inactive for about a year then. My OBGYN told me it can be a side effect.
      However, if you quit the pill and are sexually active it wouldn’t hurt to take a test.

  • ovo July 25, 2016, 10:32 pm

  • Pot July 21, 2016, 7:51 pm

    I am getting worried with my period because I am 9 days late now (almost 2weeks) and had my last period June 16, 2016 and it lasted for 3 days ended up June 18, 2016. I had sex, yes.. protected sex with my boyfriend on the first week of July and it is impossible for him to get me pregnant since we’ve used condom while we are having sexual intercourse. So, my period for this month of July should be coming last week (July 13-15) but it did not came, until now it hasn’t come yet. I haven’t become delayed or missed periods because I have a regular cycle (28days) usually my period is a week earlier than I’ve expected. Should I take HPT already or just wait for my period to come?

    • Pot July 21, 2016, 8:32 pm

      And there are no signs of symptoms are showing up. I don’t feel dizzy/nausea, tired or sleepy. My boobs are still in the same size, not swollen or sore and not getting tender. I am also not craving for anything, my stool is solid. Not watery and I’m not constipated or having diarrhea. I don’t urinate often. But still wondering why my period hasn’t come yet although I am having white discharge. Is ot possible that I might get pregnant? Or maybe i am just stressing myself way too much that makes my period late/delayed? Someone please help me with this ‘coz I don’t even know what to say to my parents.

      • Candy August 13, 2016, 6:36 pm

    My wife was on the depo shot for a year and we decided we wanted to start trying for a baby. She’s been off the depo for a year and a half now and hasn’t had period since she first got the shot. Is there a way to reverse the damage, or is it permanent? I wish the doctor would have informed us about the harmful effects of birth control.

Can you please tell me what has happened since last time you posted. I have started to think of weird stuff in my head like a virgin birth :-) or something.

  • Tia Stephens June 18, 2016, 4:50 am

    My name is Tia, I am 17 years old. When I was 16, I had very bad periods, they were really heavy and I would have to use overnight pads. My doctor gave me birth control, and when I started taking them, I had my period. Then a week after getting off my period, I started my period again for two weeks. I stopped taking the birth control pill because I didn’t know when my period was going to stop. After that I missed 3 months after, then started a week of my period, then I would miss 3 months again. This is a continuous cycle until probably December 2015 through possibly March or April I stopped having my period. I am a virgin, I’m single, and I masturbate regularly. I do not remember the last time I had my period. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to have kids when I’m older and married. I feel empty. I don’t want birth control to have me stop my period. I want my period. It’s weird for a teenager girl to say that. But it could be over stress where my mom has stage 4 cancer, and I gained a lot of weight, the last time I checked, I was 182lbs, and I’m 5’6. I’m pretty built for my age. My family would call me stout. I guess.

  • Aida June 11, 2016, 10:23 am

    This kind of helped….. But I’m two weeks late and I’m freaking out! I’m not sure what I should do. I’m trying to keep calm because I do know that stress can push back your period. But I have so much stress goi ng on right now and my period being late just adds to it. I’ve had so much anxiety. And I get cramps, fatigue, etc. like I normally would before my period. But I normally would eat everything in sight. Lately I don’t want to eat anything! My favorite foods just don’t appeal to me anymore. I really think I could be pregnant and it’s not a good thing at this time in my life :(

  • Worried June 5, 2016, 10:28 pm

    Hi there

    I last had my period around the 24th of April. I went to stay at my bfs on the 31st/1st of May, and while we had intercourse he didn’t finish in me. But I haven’t had my period since and I’m getting a little worried. I’ve always had a consistent period since I started when I was about 11, so I’m not sure about what do to. I am overweight but it’s never effected my periods in the past and I haven’t gained a lot of weight in a short amount of time. Can someone offer any advice? Should I get a home pregnancy test to be sure?

    • Dan May 31, 2016, 9:10 am

      Pmonth and the day her period starte. I hope you can help us. Tell us what is happening. Is my girlfriend pregnant ?

      • Ahddib June 23, 2016, 12:23 pm

        Unlikely by you if april 14th is your last event and she had a period on april 27th. Sperm only lives for a few days and ovulations are between cycles.

        I know this is a late reply, but there’s so many unanswered questions here I thought I’d answer the one I can for those who follow.

  • jasmine May 30, 2016, 4:05 am

    hi, i’m 18 and i always had irregular periods. i once took a blood test and the dr said everything was fine and normal.
    after a few years my periods were coming on time and suddenly, they just stopped. it’s been 2 and a half months since my last period. i have all the sings you get right before your period like tender breasts, cramps and pms and stuff. but the period just doesn’t come. my cramp-like-pain is getting worse. the pain is weird cause sometimes i feel like i have to use the bathroom although i shouldn’t. what could possibly be wrong?

  • Angel May 28, 2016, 10:02 pm

    Hi, I am 12 years old and I haven’t had my period in 4 months I have never had sex but sometimes here and there I masturbate and I don’t know if that effects my period and if it doesn’t then what do I do??????

    • Nina July 4, 2016, 2:59 pm

      I’m not sure how late I am to answer your question, but masturbstion doesn’t affect periods too much if any at all. In my experience, it really only delays it a day or so. Sometimes, it actually starts the day after. Speak to your mom or whoever is your guardian to take you to the doctor. You can get checked and they can be much better at giving you information than anyone online since everybody’s body is different. Best wishes!

  • Andrea Jones May 25, 2016, 9:25 am

    I was on birth control and was smoking at the same time – and was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism (most painful thing I’ve ever experienced) from smoking on birth control. So I stopped taking birth control and continued to smoke. however because of the pulmonary embolism I was on blood thinners for 6 months. During which I had HEAVY painful periods… I stopped taking the blood thinners as told by a doctor after confirming the clot was off my lungs and gone. I haven’t had my period since (it is May 25th and I stopped taking the blood thinners in February of this year). I’ve taken a pregnancy test – multiple – I know I’m not pregnant… but I’ve still not got my period. I’m concerned :( I have an appointment booked with my doctor in 3 weeks from now – but I’m curious if it’s already been long enough here it’s something I should be immediately concerned with and seek medical attention. I am a 29 year old woman – and I don’t have children yet and know I for sure do WANT some I don’t want this to be the reason I can’t :(:( so scared.

  • Kathrine May 19, 2016, 3:55 pm

    I began to have periods in October of 2014 and they came back about 30 days after the last one until Febuary 2015. I didn’t have a period that month and I still haven’t I don’t want to go to a doctor because I believe that I might be female to male transgender and I do not want to bring periods and additional breast growth into my already stressful life as a high school student. What should I do?

    • Jamie June 16, 2016, 5:34 pm

      You “believe you MIGHT be female to male transgender” and do not want to add periods and breast growth to your stressful life?!?! Wow… you’re a girl. Deciding to be a boy will not change that. Surgery or sex change will not change that. It is in your dna, the wat God made you. Starting periods is normal, and being irregular when starting them is also normal. But you can’t will yourself to be a boy so you don’t have them.

      I don’t mean for that to come across as heartless as it sounds. I understand being a teenager is extremely stressful. Every thing that happens is a matter of life or death, and everything that goes wrong is the end of the world. Your hormones are going crazy and that is why. But being transgender won’t change any of that, it is not the answer.

    Hi, My period is 14 days late. I was supposed to start May 3rd and its now May 17. I took a pregnancy test at the doctor and it came back negative. I had intercourse a few days before my period was supposed to start. Im on birth control and my boyfriend used a condom. what could be wrong??

    • leanne May 18, 2016, 6:36 am

      hi i am 44 years old i have always had my periods very regularly i am now 2 weeks overdue to get my periods i havent had any more stress in my life than usual.
      my periods always last 5 to 6 days i have done a home prwgnancy test twice they have came back negative.
      when i was younger i did always fall pregnant very easy although now we have been using condoms although we did have one slip up

    • Denise May 19, 2016, 12:31 am

      Maybe there is nothing wrong. Depending on the birth control method your are, that is what is affecting your cause of not having a period.

  • Taylor May 16, 2016, 10:11 pm

    I’m 15 years old and I haven’t had my period for 3, almost 4 months. After reading you article I have a feeling it’s because I am stressed a lot and I do have anxiety. Plus I am 223 pounds as of right now but I have been on a *healthy* diet to try and get my weight down the correct way. I say that because I used to eat like 1 and half meals a day so not much but. Also I am a virgin sooo I don’t know. I need your help

    Hi, I am 29. My last period started on Feb 6 and lasted for 5 days. After that I haven’t got my periods. I had sex with my boyfriend on March 9. I took two home pregnancy tests but both came negative. I started on some homeopathy medicines in the first week of April but stopped in a week or so perhaps. Since the last 3 weeks am spotting everyday. Am I pregnant? What shall I do?

  • Faith April 29, 2016, 1:50 pm

    Hello. So I got my period around last month around the first, second, or third week of April, and I haven’t gotten it yet. This worries me (although I am not sexually active) it concerns me and worries that I may have something wrong with me. Please help. I am 16 and weight 200 Ilbs.

  • Tammy April 27, 2016, 12:55 pm

    I am in the same situation too. My periods have always been irregular for years. I will have 1 a month or sometimes 2 a month it just depends. I already have heavy painful periods ( that is when I do have them). Ever since October 2015 I haven’t had a period. No spotting and I’m not pregnant. Right now I’m going on almost 7 months without a period which is great but at my age it’s concerning because of the worry of early onset of menopause at age 38. I’ve already had a polyp removed before. My Dr seems to think that I could be one of those people that will have periods here there up untill menopause and not have a normal cycle. My primary suggested putting me on the pill to induce a period. I told him no thanks. I’m good. I just want to know what it could be and what could it lead to down the road.

  • archie April 27, 2016, 12:39 pm

  • JennyP April 26, 2016, 1:53 pm


    I am 20 years old and am worried about missing my period for 3 months now. To start off I was in a car accident in late January in which I was sent to the ER. I still have crazy doctors appointments along with school (so, yes I’m super stressed). I also studied abroad in March. I have taken many pregnancy tests and they all come out negative. The last time I had sex was about 3 weeks ago. I don’t know what to do and I honestly will appreciate any advice.
    Thank you for your time.

  • Mace April 26, 2016, 8:59 am

    I did a D&C in December 2015 and since then, i’ve not seen my period. i went back to the hospital in February to complain and after doing a pregancy test, result of which is Negative, the doctor gave me a drug “Menstrogen” My flow still didnt come. In March 2016, i went back to the Doctor and he said it was a blockage. He did another D&C like process. I had a flow on that day alone and since then, i’ve not seen any sign of it.
    Going through this article, i guess its a case of Uterine scarring. Please what can i do?

  • WORRIED April 18, 2016, 12:29 pm

    I am 22 years old. I am more than 2 weeks late on my period. I am not usually regular, my period is usually a couple of days early of late, but not THAT late! Last time i got off my period was on february 29, 2016 and i havent seen my period since. About a week later I had sexual contact with my boyfriend without any penetration, ejaculation nor proteccion. I am worried i might be pregnant, but i am not nauseous, no vomiting, no belly bloating, no cramps. Only ocasional breast tenderness, which makes me think my period is on its way but it never comes. (I had my period twice on february, which is not common). I am worried.

  • Vicky April 13, 2016, 8:31 pm

    I am only 15 years old and well me and this dude had protected sex. then he came like on me but not inside me. some of it got onto my pubic hairs but i didn’t wash it instead i used a towel to wipe it off. when i took a pregnancy test, i peed a little bit more than i should have. nevertheless it came out negative. its about three weeks now and i’ve noticed that today my boobs have stretch marks on them and i am very worried and stressing out so much about it.

  • Jenna April 13, 2016, 2:56 am

    Thank you DP Nguyen for this article, so very helpful. I’m 45 y.o., I was 42 y.o when i gave birth to my youngest child last Oct. 15, 2012. I breasfed my baby for 2 yrs and 6 months straight (from Oct.15, 2012 to April 26, 2016) and since i was breastfeeding i had irrregular periods(it was like period after 8 mos., after 6 mos.,, after 3 mos, after 9mos.) which i believed was just normal- only twice in 2013, thrice in 2014 and thrice in 2015. My last was on October 15, 2015 wherein almost 6 mos. now i missed my period. Am I on a pre-menopausal stage now?

      No no you should not worry when you first start your period it takes a while for it to develop properly and get in to a proper cycle so nothing to worry about.

  • Justin April 8, 2016, 8:35 pm

    Hello I just had a question regarding my girlfriend, Shes 18 and she was supposed to have her period anywhere from the 25th – 29th of March and it’s already the 8th of April and she still has no signs of a period. We have tried a pregnancy test and it came up negative. She said just today that she was getting cramps and that she has had it for the entire day, but she said they have never been this bad before. She’s 5’2 and weighs 113lbs if that helps at all.

    am 19

  • Jess April 7, 2016, 6:04 am

    Without going into every detail of my healtg history, I have not had a period for 62 days. My last day of spotting was January 17th 2016. I have been off of the pill since November 9th 2015, and bleed twice since. Since missing my periods for over 2 months straight, I have taken pregnancy pee tests and a blood test, which are all negative. I had a 5 centimeter ovarian cyst a few years back and was recommended to go back on the pill until I was ready to start trying for a family, which is now. I have had sore overies off and on and egg white coloured mucus the past few days but still no sign of anything happening. I am also overweight (109kg). Do you have any suggestions for me? I see my gynecologist at the end of April for results on a blood test to check my hormone levels, but I am trying to get as much research together to be prepared for whatever bombshell he may drop on me. Thank you so much.

    I am 15 and I currently weigh 98 pounds and I am 5’2. I got my FIRST PERIOD EVER on February 1st – February 6th and I haven’t gotten it back. It had been about a month now, and today ( April 6th 2016) I Started spotting and I have a very light flow. Is this NORMAL? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    • JenniP April 6, 2016, 2:23 pm

      Yes, that’s very normal. When I got my first period, I didn’t get another one for about a year and a half. When you first get your period they’re almost always irregular until your body adjusts and puts itself on a schedule. It can take a few years to become regular, and sometimes they stay irregular (with how heavy or light the flow is, time between periods, symptoms, etc.). You said it’s been a month, and as it was your first period, you have nothing to go by to see what is “normal” for you and what isn’t. You’re fine, track on a calendar for the next 6 months or so and then average out how long your cycle is. Just remember, for the first few years, there really is no “normal”!

  • Sarah April 1, 2016, 7:54 am

    Hi I am 18 years old. I have not got my period in 2 months. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests which all showed negotiate. I have been taking the pill leonare for about a year and a half now. I finished my last period aproximitly the 1st of February. I forgot to start my next pack of the pill after this period so I decided I would not take it again until I get my period. On the 14th of Feb I had unprotected sex. I took the morning after pill (ella one ) 8 hours later. Today is the 1st of April and I still have no signs of a period.

    • JenniP April 6, 2016, 2:26 pm

      The morning after pill is very effective, and the fact that you’ve taken 3 tests all showing negative most likely means your negative. Having unprotected sex almost 2 months ago, you would have definitely tested positive at least a month ago. As you stopped taking your pill, it’s probably your body trying to adjust to the change in hormones. You shouldn’t be waiting for your period to start to take the pill, as most pills regulate your period, not the other way around. If y our pick up on your birth control again my bet is you will start your period. Even if you forgot to start it, you should always keep taking it. THe yo-yo effect the hormones cause from starting and stopping isn’t great for your body.

      • Kate April 23, 2016, 2:25 pm

        Not to worry you but when I was 18, the morning after pill failed me, I’m now 27 with an 8 year old son. I took it asap and I still fell pregnant.Never rely on the morning after pill, it’s not as effective as everyone thinks it is. JenniP is probably right about your pill, it does mess everything up. But I’d still take a pregnancy test to be sure

        • Kate April 23, 2016, 2:28 pm

          Somehow I missed the part where you said you’d taken three tests, Jenni wrote it too. I must be blind or tired haha sorry

    Hi. I’m Sweet. I haven’t had my period this month of March which I’m supposed to have it on the 5th but didn’t. Also i had Sex last day of my period last month
    Is it highly possible that I’m pregnant? But I’m not experiencing any breast tenderness or nausea.. Please response, thanks!

    • JenniP April 6, 2016, 2:30 pm

      Usually, ovulation occurs 2 weeks after the start of your last period, and your fertile time is 4 days before and after that, so chances are you’re not pregnant. Did you use protection? And are your periods always regular (for around 2 years)? I don’t think your pregnant but you’re enough past when you think you should have gotten your period to get an accurate result from a home pregnancy test. Just as a side note, stressing about whether you may be pregnant or not is enough to make your period late! Take a test, see it’s negative and you’ll probably get your period soon after. Stress really does wreak havoc on Aunt Flow!

  • Destiny March 26, 2016, 4:28 pm

        • JenniP April 6, 2016, 2:33 pm

          I first got my period when I was 14, had it once, and didn’t get it again for almost a year. It’s completely normal when you first get your period to skip months, have some close together, etc. Your body takes around 2 years to get into it’s groove, and you most likely have nothing to worry about. I think you should relax and let your body do its thing. Stress can mess with your cycle, too, so by overthinking and stressing yourself out, you could be making it later :)

I stopped taking my pills the end of December because we want to get pregnant again. January, February and so far with this period for march my periods have only lasted 2 maybe 3 days. I have taken pregnancy tests and all have been negative.

It is now march and my breasts are tender and im wondering if i am pregnant. My partner has had a vasectomy, what is going on?

  • A.s March 2, 2016, 12:06 pm

    I’m new to birth control and I’m fairly broke so…anyway, I used my pills to skip 2 periods, when I tried to skip the third it didn’t work and I ended up having a 3.5 week long period. Its been a month and I’m back on track with my pills, BUT my period has yet to start and i only have 3 pills left in my pack. I take my BC religiously so I’m sure I’m not pregnant. Am I late because of skipping too much?

    • JenniP April 6, 2016, 2:36 pm

      It sounds like you threw your body all out of whack. It can take several months for your hormones to readjust and get back to stable levels. Starting and stopping pills, as well as using them to skip periods wreaks havoc on your hormones. I would say take them as directed, and you should be back on track in a few months. Take the pills daily, as pills regulate your cycle, don’t take pills going by your cycle. Pills regulate periods, it’s not supposed to be the other way around.

  • Ally February 27, 2016, 9:32 pm

    Hi. I am 13 years old and have had my period normally for about 6 months. Since the beginning of thus year , I haven’t gotten my period and I am not sexually active. Should I see a doctor?

    • daryl March 2, 2016, 6:32 pm

      Hi Ally, yes you should see a doctor about that.

    • Olivia March 6, 2016, 10:57 am

      Obviously I don’t know how long you’ve been having your period for, but for the first few years you have a period, it’s meant to be a little bit haywire because your body is adjusting and all that. Missing a month isn’t usually that bad (hey, less blood to deal with!) but just to be on the safe side, see how it goes this month, if you still miss it then tell your parents/guardian you’re worried about it and ask to see a doctor.

    • JenniP April 6, 2016, 2:40 pm

      Ugh. First, why is some creepy guy giving young girls advice on their periods? Second, no Ally, you’re probably completely fine. It takes our bodies sometimes 2 years or longer to get into a groove and regulate themselves. Your period starts with your body’s first huge surge of hormones and it takes a while for our systems to get used to it. I got mine for the first time and didn’t get it again for almost a year. Everyone is different, but know that in the beginning there is no such thing as regular. At different times in your life you’ll have times when you’re early, late, or skip completely. It’s 100% normal. A lot of things can effect your period, as the article says, and stress is a big one! So I would advice you to relax, enjoy being young, and let your body get used to doing its thing! :)

      And don’t listen to nasty guys trying to troll young girls, it’s disgusting.

  • Cassie February 19, 2016, 8:10 am

    I’m 28 years old and my fiance and I have been trying to conceive since August. I already have a 3 and a half year old daughter. My cycles are normally 30 -35 days, occasionally I will get my period early or have two periods in one month. Right now I am 10 days late! I was so hopeful that this meant I could be pregnant but all home pregnancy tests say no. I spaced them out to make sure I wasn’t taking the tests too early. Could this be another disappointing month where I just missed my period? Should I wait and then make a doctors appointment? We so badly want to have another child.

    • Enner February 26, 2016, 8:51 am

      Cassie, I am 38 and trying myself. My periods tend to be a tad irregular but I always get one. Mine ended on the 23rd last month and I think I got it on the 17th or 19th. All of my tests keep coming back negative. I was very underweight and have GI issues. I gained 8 pounds and I am eating like crazy. I’m moody, breasts are killing me. I have an appointment with an OB next Thursday. I do have issues with follicular cysts but I am not having symptoms I normally get with them. I am not sure if I am tricking myself into thinking I am pregnant.. Maybe it’s just too soon to know. But I did ovulate last month according to OV tests….Twice actually; that in itself is strange. I think you should make an appointment to ease your worries.

I was testing 6-8 months ago for STDs and all clear there. MY OB didn’t seem alarmed but it was my first time seeing her and I’m very much alarmed. I look forward (as odd as that sounds) to my period. I know I’m healthy when it comes. I had all the signs it was coming and then nothing… What Qs should I be asking my Dr since she was not concerned

    Hi i am 28 years old and trying to conceive. I had my last period on 24 Nov, 2015. I had taken a urine pregnancy test which resulted to be negative. Also I have taken beta hcg test which came to be positive on Jan 11 later on Jan 13 beta hcg level raised up by 60% but after 15 days that is 27 Jan beta hcg dropped to zero. I consulted the gynaecologist and she told me that I had a biochemical pregnancy. She gave me medicine to get my periods and its more then 10 days after taking the medicine I have not got my period. Have got my thyroid test done which is again Normal. My ultrasound also is normal. I am very much confused as I am not getting my period cycles nor I am pregnant. Also I have starting gain up weight due to missed periods.
    Plz suggest.

  • Candace February 14, 2016, 9:58 pm

    I really don’t like the implication that as soon as you miss a period, you should assume you’re pregnant. Maybe you should add an “If you are sexually active in a heterosexual relationship,” to the beginning of that statement. Although, this being a pregnancy website, that may be a given. I was trying to find a helpful result but every place I look it’s “you must be pregnant” or “it’s just stress” but I maintain a consistent weight and healthy diet. I’ve never had sex with a man. And I highly doubt stress and depression are the cause behind my +4 month ‘dry spell’.

  • Person who is worried February 14, 2016, 12:56 am

    hi im am 11 turning 12 i had my period for only 2-3 days in November 28th and ever since then i havent had my period just vaginal discharge every day and im really confused all of my friends i think have there period every month please help someone

    • Ani February 22, 2016, 6:22 pm

      probably nothing to worry about – you’re just starting, so its normal to have sporadic periods with irregularity.. everyone’s different, so don’t compare yourself to your friends. Could be nothing, but if it goes on for a long time or you are sill worried, go to your doctor.

    Hi, I’m seventeen years old and I have had my period since I was 11. I do have thyroid problems and I have been kissing weight and gaining weight quite a bit lately. My weight has shifted about twenty pounds lower and and then I gained It back again within a few months. Do you think that that could be why I haven’t had my period for almost three months?

  • Norma February 5, 2016, 9:52 am

    Hi there. I would really appreciate if anyone could give any good advise as I am quite scared. I had unprotected sex (he did not ejaculate in me) just over a month ago with my partner. 2 days later i had my period, which was normal and on time. Since then we have not have sex as we have been apart from each other. Now, for the first time ever, I am late – roughly about 5 days – I am very regular normally.
    Please note that 1 week ago, by chance I was at the gyno for a PAP test and he could see that I was just about to start my period, which still a week later has not arrived.
    What are the chances of being pregnant, although I have not had sex since my last period?
    I appreciate any feedback.

    Thank you!

    Hi, I’m 15 years old and It has been over 65 days since my last period. I don’t think that’s normal?

  • Tey February 1, 2016, 8:41 am

    I am 19 years old and currently I’m on birth control because I would miss periods for months in a row. The longest time between periods for me was 9 months (I was not sexually active at all). Then afterwards, I felt nauseated, developed an intense fever, and with that followed my period. My gynecologist said it was stress but honestly I’m not totally convinced. Also, my periods cramps off of birth control are so intense and sharp that they have made me cry, scream, and I’ve fainted from the pain before. Can anyone possibly help me? :/

  • shev January 28, 2016, 3:46 am

    Hi i havent had my period for a month now.the last time i had sex was thanksgiving weekend. I had a full and normal period in december…around christmas. In early january i had light spots for two days. Since then ive felt twinge cramps in right ovary and my lower back hurts and i get really emotional or ragey. All signs which normally lead to my period. But nothing. In between nov and jan i lost about 15 pounds which is normal for me when i put my mind to it. But this week noticed my breasts are swollen .my jackets which were hangung lose as of two weeks ago are tight across the breasts. I have been diagnosed with pcos but under the care of a doc have been on the pill for years to regulate my periods. Sidebar in jan usually have a two to three week period. So this is different.

  • Zle January 26, 2016, 4:02 am

    Hi I’m 24 and I always have a regular period. Usually my period starts every 26th of the month, Last September I missed my period and then it came on the 10th of October. So I just disregard that coz maybe its just a change of cycle and other girls I know had also experience that. I had my period on the last week of november then on december I missed my period again and until now, I haven’t had my period. I was kind of worried because I never experience to missed longer than a month and that I’am aslo bloated. And it was bothering that I have small amount of pale blood discharge started after my period for november and never stops until now. I take myra 400IU last June 2015 and stop 2nd week of january this year. I know I’m not pregnant. What do you think happen to me?

  • Karli January 23, 2016, 10:16 pm

    For some reason, every three months, my period skips one month. For example, I had my period in June, July, August, skipped September, had it again October, November, December. I am 12 days late already in January so it seems like it will skip January. Is there a reason for this? I know I am not pregnant.

    Should I worry if I have just been spotting for 2 straight weeks and no period? I am mid 30’s…tube tied…not sure what to do. The VA can’t see me for about 3 weeks. I am trying to not freak out. I have been normal for many years! This is a first for me. I am STILL spotting.

  • Anna January 12, 2016, 7:52 pm

    Hi! I am very confused right now since my period has not come yet and i am almost 43 days in my cycle. This is the first time that I missed my mine knowing that I regularly have it monthly (29-35 days).

    To make things clear first, I did not have any sexual contact with anyone else. So the option for pregnancy is very unlikely. But I experienced spotting (for what I think is ovulation spotting(?)) in December 25 and expectedly I should have my period in January 8. Then right now I experience PMS like cramps and sore boobs but still there is no period. What should I do? Are there medical issues that I overlooked? Pls help, thank you very much!

  • Kay January 8, 2016, 5:13 pm

    Me and my boyfriend had sex for the first time but it was only 5 seconds. After 6 days I got a dark brownish spotting and 2-3 weeks after I got a light pinkish bloody white discharge for only two days. I’m worried that I am pregnant. PLEASE HELP! I’m only 15 and I hope I’m not pregnant. I have experienced a bit of cramping then but other than that, I haven’t experienced ANY pregnancy symptoms.

    • Katie January 9, 2016, 6:29 pm

      Do not worry, the blood that you see is probably from you being a virgin. That is normal when you have sex for the first time. If you used protection I’m sure you are fine. If you are worried, you can take a test. Just wait and see if you get your period. Be safe.

    • Hannah January 13, 2016, 12:17 am

      Hi Rachel, you will be just fine :) When you’re young and your hormones are balancing themselves out your cycle can be very irregular. When I was your age mine would randomly skip a whole month sometimes. As for the discharge, that’s completely normal and just part of being an adult woman. Hope this helps!

    hi i am a 17 year old male and have a girlfriend. so one day we got horny and we went for grinding but we both had our undies on. only undies.but when we were doing it, i got precum and it wets my undies. but on her undies, im not sure whether thats my precum or not. but we thought its okay so we try not to think about it. however since then, she got 3 months delayed period but no symptoms of pregnancy such as vomiting or dizziness. im abit worried now. but i just saw you guys said, sperm cant go thru fabric because its not strong enough. Im abit scared of her delayed period. the question is, is this 3 months delayed period normal? please reply :(

    • C December 31, 2015, 2:58 pm

      Have her take a pregnancy test anyway. If nothing else, it’ll put your minds at ease and give you the answers you need. She could be stressing out about it and not wanting to worry you or she could just be missing her periods. I used to have lots of missed ones in my youth and then really long ones, too. Either way, the test will give you peace of mind. If it comes out negative, then I’d say wait it out another month. If still nothing, have her go to her doctor to see if anything’s wrong on the female side of things. Good to get checked out anyway once a year.

I am also getting VERY hormonal, my face is breaking out, getting nauseous, up and down appetite, and I have sore breasts. I have no idea what is going on but have a referral to go see an obgyn.

    I am married. I got a period on oct 18th 2015. But till now i did not get the period again. I am in birth control. Also i checked with pregnancy test device for two times, and its showing negative. I got a pregnancy in april but i had a lap- salptingectomy performed on left side on april 15, 2015 to the ruptured ectopic pregnancy test fallopian tube. After that within two months i got periods normally. Again in the month of august i missed the periods. I consulted a doctor and she said that due to weight gain only i missed the periods. She gave me medicines and she suggest me to loss the weight and diet changes. I totally changed my food diet and daily doing excersises. With that change i got regular periods for two months. Again i missed the periods now. Its almost 11days delay. Now we are planning for children if my periods are over in november. But till now i did not get the periods. What is the problem in me. As i had a operation in april, is there any problem for me while i missing the periods. Is there any problem in getting the pregnacy. Please help me.

Last August at this year i have my period but now and then I’ve missed my period for 3 months then this November at exactly i have it but it extend for at least a minute then after it, it’s gone. I’m afraid of this situation, I’m just only 16 years of age and i have no experience of having sexual intercourse. I feel so intense i have no test yet because i’m afraid to know about it. please any idea for this situation?

  • Bridget November 28, 2015, 8:59 am

    Hi, I’m Bridget.
    I’m 16 years old and my period is late 3 days. This happened last month but it was late 5 days and it came on the 6th day. I have had sexual intercouse with my boyfriend many times, but always with protection, the condom has never broke, and he changes it everytime he “goes” so it doesn’t have that risk of breaking. The other day, he convinced me that everything was going to be okay, so once again, we had sex when I was already one day late. I stopped it however after the first condom because I was still uncomfortable and paranoid that it would happen during sex, or it would push it back even further if that’s possible! I’m under a lot of stress right now because of grade 12 and all these big projects and I’m needing marks that matter to get me too college. I’m also under-weight, but I’ve been under-weight my whole life. I’m 16 years old (17 next month) and I weigh 94 pounds. Anyways my first assumption was of course, pregnancy and I just can’t have anymore stress right now, plus my parents would be extremely disappointed in me. I’ve told my boyfriend that for now on were not going to have sex as frequently as we do because I have to focus on other things besides sex. Is there anything you can tell me as too why I’ve been late the last 2 months? Please help me, I’ve only ever missed my period once and that was when I was still a virgin. Help me please !

    • shah January 5, 2016, 7:20 pm

      While having sex you wasted too much needed astrogen to produce muature egg that is essential for start priod so caused to be late for menstruation

      You need to wait for a week more and take suitable diet and avoib to be stress .

      Have sex only pleasant environment in ovulation. Make you more loving and easy to remain normal ever

      Make appointment to see your doctor if it further gets late.

  • Jane October 27, 2015, 7:35 am

    Hi there! I hope you can help me.

    I’m 18. I just got a STD & pregnancy test done about 2 weeks ago – and all was negative. My boyfriend and I have been having a lot of sex the past couple of weeks since then. I’m on birth control and he always uses a condom. I missed my period last month b/c I took my pills irregularly, but I also missed it this month while taking the pills normally. We had sex many times with a condom while I was on my placebo pills this week (& I didn’t get a period). Any advice?
    Thank you!

  • Kate October 27, 2015, 5:45 am

    I used injection only once as birth control method..but upto now i haven’t seen my monthly period..Its now ONE AND HALF yrs without seeing my periods. what is wrong with me??

    • C December 31, 2015, 3:02 pm

      After using depo shots, it took me almost 2 years to normalize afterward, but I was on them for a very long time before that. My best advice is to see your OBGYN and ask when you should expect your period to return, if she/he says after X period of time and yours is outside of that date, then tell them you’re worried and they’ll do what they feel necessary.

  • karla October 26, 2015, 10:26 pm

    Ok so I am very concerned at the moment. Through out my life I’ve had irregular cycles and (abusing) birth controlled pills. I’ve tried to getting pregnant after and still nothing over 5 years with different partners. I haven’t seen my period in 3 months now (which isn’t new to me) I took pregnancy tests but still negative. I smoke weed sometimes to destress (I’m easily stressed). During the 3 months course I was spotting and I never saw my period nor have I done a pregnancy test after. What is wrong with me? ( NEED ANSWERS BEFORE I SEE MY DOCTOR) PLEASE!!!!

  • Diana October 26, 2015, 9:04 pm

    Hi I have had some problems with my stomach when finish eating food and have not had my period since July and its October. I have had sex twice but I took 2 pregnancy test around different times. And until this October I haven’t had anything. I been stressing a bit and I just can’t get it off of my mind what do you suggest?

  • Jordan Marshall October 19, 2015, 8:00 pm

    Hi there,

    My last period was three weeks late, and in that time I probably took 9 or 10 pregnancy tests (all negative, and yes I may have been a little paranoid). I had just come back from an overseas trip to visit my boyfriend, so thought that might have thrown it off temporarily. However, now I’m a week late again. What would you recommend?

  • Max October 17, 2015, 10:06 pm

    “If you miss your period, always assume you’re pregnant” is the best thing to tell a lesbian or an asexual (some asexuals do participate in sex)…

    I guess I’m pregnant without having any sex. //sarcasm, just saying

    • Wendy November 3, 2015, 9:13 pm

      Pretty sure the author wrote this article for an audience she assumed knows how sex works. So any person, regardless of orientation, would go hmm, I’ve missed my period but I haven’t had sex, maybe I should skip that part and find more relevant information. Instead of immediately thinking wow, the most common scientific reason for missing a period is due to pregnancy but that does not apply to me so how dare the author write about it. Be more realistic…

  • Hollyann October 16, 2015, 7:31 pm

    Hello I’m Holly. I’m 30 years old. Since my mom has been ill my body and period have been messed up completely. It’s concerning me and I’m on an antidepressant celexa. I normally get my period the 8th or 15th. It’s the 16th and still nothing. I took a pregnancy test on the 8th and today the 16th. It says I’m not pregnant. However, I worry I might have premature menopause or a serious health issue. I’m so afraid and suffer from Depression, anxiety, panic attacks and more. I really wish I had someone to talk too!

    • Jen November 1, 2015, 8:03 pm

      Hi Holly! As someone who also has anxiety and depression, I can tell you it’s most likely just stress. You sound like you’re in a very stressful situation since you mentioned it’s been since your mom got sick, and get stressed easily (I do too, my periods end up late a lot from it as well – I even worry about premature menopause too and I’m only 22!) I think antidepressants can also mess with your period and make them irregular sometimes.

  • Anahja lynch October 16, 2015, 11:44 am

    Hi I’m 18 I’m not pregnant but I haven’t had my period in two months and I don’t know why

  • Natalie October 14, 2015, 8:25 am

    This information isn’t exactly helpful for someone who’s a lesbian and has never had sex with a male before. “In a majority of cases, if you have normal menstruation – you have your period without fail every single month – and you’ve missed your period, you are more than likely pregnant.” – I physically can’t be pregnant. Please re-word the sentence because people who miss their periods and havent had sex, even straight women, are not necessarily pregnant.

    • Bonnie November 30, 2015, 8:54 am

      I think the author wrote that comment for this reason, and this reason only. .. that is the most common reason to have a missed period. And women, especially younger women and teenagers or those who may be taking medications or drinking alcohol, smoking etc, should yes, assume pregnancy first and be evaluated, as the baby’s life needs to be protected as early as possible. There are also a ton of positive things one should consider doing, such as taking prenatal vitamins etc. So if you know for a fact you can’t be pregnant bc of your personal choices or activities, just skip over that part of the article as I did :) I could be, but that’s not the info im looking for, so I skipped it, and kept reading!

  • tamara October 14, 2015, 6:12 am

    My fiance periods is eight days delayed, still counting. SHE is a cabin attendant and manages hectic schedule. SHE had HER last cycle on 2nd September. SHE also suffered from fever and low pressure for 6 days in the last month, and took some high power antibiotics. WE had unprotected sex few times, and I used the withdraw method, like WE always do.
    Please suggest

    • DP Nguyen October 8, 2015, 10:39 am

      She could be pregnant. You guys need to take a pregnancy test to confirm that she’s not pregnant.

  • Jennifer Melissa September 14, 2015, 9:59 pm

    Hi. My period was suppose to start last Friday (Sept. 11) and it hasn’t started. I’m so worried because I haven’t had sex and this is the second time this happens to me (the last time happened two years ago). All I want to know is if my period is late or missed? I don’t want to be worried all day at school if its going to start any time during class.

  • Samantha September 2, 2015, 7:56 pm

    I’ve read all symptoms you have listed as far as I can tell only the jet lag and travel one stands out the most since we are PCSing to Hawaii soon. Anyhow, my last period was 2 weeks late and all the sudden came fishing out of no where, normal 4-5 day duration. A week after it ended I’m suddenly bleeding again? Is it possible to have 2 periods in one month (5 days now) or have I miscarried ? We are moving in a couple weeks I don’t think its enough time to set up an appointment please give me some feed back of you can! Thank you

    My lmp is 16th june….three home pregnancy tests have shown negative result…what should i do?

  • soyombo ajoke ganiyat August 26, 2015, 10:37 pm

    I missed my period this month am 22years old.
    In june I had unprotected sex and took postinor2 the second day (though, that was a mistake instead of using postinor1), my menstruation came back the 3rd day after I finish (with severe pain for some hours that landed me in the hospital bed but just for a day and I felt relieved while lying down with my face facing the bed after some minutes even before a pain control injection),but the reoccurence of the menstruation stops the second day, and my period came as normal on july 1st, and I felt no concern for it.
    My july menstruation starts on july 1st and ends on 4th, I had unprotected sex and I use a contraceptive(postinor1),i thought this was the reason my mentration came back again on the 15th of july and end on the 18th of july(3-4days), but it does not really flow like that, it started with a stain of blood on my pant and I thought it flows normal for just a day inbetween.
    But this month reverse is the case and i get scared everyday I woke up with no blood coming out of me (menstruation) on my pant.
    With this above reasons, I did not expect to see my period 28 or 30 days after july first (with the believe that a change has occur in my menstrual circle),because of the reoccurence of my period on the 15th of july, so I expect to see my period latest by 15th or 16th of august,but today is 27th of august and I can’t still see my period coming on.
    Have done several urine pregnancy test and the result was all negative,and just two days ago,I did blood test again to be more sure but all results proved negative.
    Am more than worried,am very very scared,and again, am the type that don’t really have discharges like that, let me say am mostly dryed (even when having sex and this makes me use vigina lubricant during sex because I don’t usually lubricate) but now have changed, I discharge everyday and am always wet at times like someone longing for sex,firstly I think of this as a puberty change or getting mature in that aspect (lubricating to enjoy sex), but still am not certain what the cause of my delay to menstrate may be.
    I hope this contraceptive (postinor) has not damage anything in my body because I don’t even know if this is just a delay in my menstral circle or it means I may likely not see my period again.
    sir, pls what can I do, help me out.

Just had a b12 shot last week (prescribed by the dr) and hope the shots will help with the iron issue (along with taking iron supplements). I’m almost 5 days past my original start date for my period and I’m concerned that I might not have my period this month. What do I need to do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

  • Laura July 26, 2015, 8:36 am

    I am extremely concerned about my health right now. I NEVER miss a period and my tubes have been tied for 6+ years now. I only missed my period when I was pregnant in the past and normally bleed very heavy. For the past 2 months I have only been spotting lightly for a couple days and it stops. My abdomen is hard to the touch and I have been nauseated and have had diarreah for the past few days. I have never been late for a period or anything else. I have also been bloated. I took a home pregnancy test just today and it was negative. Ovarian, cervical and uterine cancer runs in my family so it is a concern of mine. My husband and I are over the road truck drivers so it is hard just to stop in a clinic in a 18 wheeler cause we practically live on the road. If you have any ideas what this could possibly be caused from please let me know! Thank you in advance!

    Hi !

    I Have a few questions which I would really like to have some answers for ! Me and my girlfriend went on holiday and we made love 9 times or so ( excuse the detail but I need to mention it ) during the holiday and a few times I just rubbed myself against her and put it in for a few seconds without wearing a condom ( Next time I will be sure to wear one ) ! I am 100 % sure that I did not ejaculate inside her ! Our last time was the night before we came home and I again rubbed myself against her and put it in for a few seconds without wearing a condom but each time we really got into it I put a condom on and ejaculated inside the condom ! So she got her period about a day or two after we came home ! What I wanna know is, can I be sure that she is not pregnant since she got her period ? And if somehow sperm got inside of her is there still a chance that she can get pregnant even after getting her period ?? I doubt it though because I think sperm won’t survive until she ovulates again ! I just wanna be sure ?

    I’m a virgin. my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex but he did not fully penetrate me. I’ve read about precum and I’ve been freaking out on end because I do not want a baby. he didn’t ejaculate inside me though. This happened early yesterday. meanwhile, my period is two weeks due, no show. I’ve been pretty stressed lately so I attributed the No-show to stress. I’m sooooooo scared right now, I don’t know if I’m pregnant or not. Is it too early for a pregnancy test? is there a necessity for it?

  • Maddy June 28, 2015, 2:49 am

    Hi, just coming across this! Hoping I will get a response too. But I am 2 weeks late now and less than a week ago I took 3 pregnancy tests and they all came out negative which at first was a relief but still haven’t gotten my period yet. My boyfriend bought me a Plan B one-step a month or so ago and I would’ve thought my period would’ve come by now if I took that plan b what seems like so long ago… Really stressing out and that could have something to do with it, I’m hoping to go to a doctor on Monday to run tests to be sure but if you know anything else, please tell me!

    hii, i am 20 and I am supposed to get my periods around june 12th but didnt get till now. Its almost a week now. Technically i didnt have sex, his penis touched the outer portion of my vagina(on may 23rd) but he made sure it is dry by wiping his penis with a cloth. Also there was a sudden death of one of my family members. what could be the possible reason of the delay of periods. is it due to stress or pregnancy.’

    I’m 17 and I havent gotten my period since February I think and it’s June16 already . I am sexually active with my bf. And we didn’t use protection we pulled out I tooken 5x pregnancy tests and all negative… I need help what do I do?

    • Ashley June 20, 2015, 5:03 am

      I’m in almost the same situation but I’ve yet to take a pregnancy test. I’m 17 as well and I’ve missed one period so far and have my next one due in two days or so. My boyfriend and I are sexually active but we’ve always pulled out. I’m scared to go buy a test but I haven’t felt like I’m pregnant, I’d feel like I would just know if I was.

      • Amy June 21, 2015, 2:44 pm

        For the record, the ‘pull-out’ method is far from 100% effective, you still have a 10-20% chance of becoming pregnant with this method, so whether or not you girls are pregnant now, consider using a more sensible method of birth control. It’s really not difficult to go on the pill. But if the test is negative & you’ve tried multiple times you are probably fine.

    • Lezi July 6, 2015, 6:31 pm

      See a doctor. You’re pregnant- the tests aren’t always correct

  • anonymous June 14, 2015, 5:03 pm

    Hi, I’m 15 and I haven’t gotten my period for I believe 4 months now. My boyfriend and I never had sex but we did some things in bed, yet there hasn’t been signs of me being pregnant at all but I’m worried because my period still hasn’t come.

  • Stephanie June 14, 2015, 12:00 pm

    im 21 years old. i was on birth control for 5 years before me and my boyfriend decided we wanted to start a family. i went and got my birth control out at the beginning of februrary. In march i bled from the 11th-21st. Thats a 20 day period. it is now june and i have yet to have another period. I took test after test after test at home and they were all negative. I went to my gyno and another test came back negative. ive been sick to my stomach and have had little sympotoms of pregnancy. Now i do understand that the woman body is a “magical” thing however there have been cases where women had no idea that they were pregnant until 5-6 months or not knowing at all. Is it possible that maybe i could be pregnant but my body isnt regeristing it? Like is it possible for pregnancy test to come back negative but actually be positive? I mean there has been stranger things happen in medicine……

    • Bria June 28, 2015, 10:21 am

      It is common for hpt to show a false negative. But it is VERY unheard of to get a false positives. I’m 18 and possibly pregnant. I haven’t gotten my period and him and I are trying to get pregnant. You most likely are pregnant ma’am.

  • anonymous June 12, 2015, 10:55 pm

    i’ve been delayed for 6 months now, for the last few months i worked on a graveyard shift, my shift starts at mostly 3am till 2pm so its a whole new routine for me and because of this i got sick for almost a week, very high fever which resulted to dizziness and loss of appetite, and when i recovered, i gained weight due to stress-eating. i took home pregnancy test twice but its all negative. i’m really worried now. i still didn’t have a check up because i’m scared and maybe its too expensive. please help me what to do. thank you!

  • Annonomus June 10, 2015, 4:13 pm

    I got my first period at the end of April. I never got one in may. Should I be worried. I’m 12 so no sexual activity and I’m not over or under weight. Is it normal for girls who just start their periods to skip?

    • Eli June 15, 2015, 4:02 pm

      Yeah, it is :) Don’t worry, it should come back in a few days. I’m 13 now and haven’t had it for at least 3 months now… Nothing wrong but very worried right now. That’s not normal. You’re fine 😀

      • Emma October 10, 2015, 4:56 am

        Hi I’m 14, and my period is 5 days late and I’m worried because it always comes 3-4 days early. Should I be worried? I’m not ill, stressed over under/overweight. What should I do? I’ve also never had any sexual intercourse.

  • rona June 9, 2015, 3:03 pm

  • Abi June 9, 2015, 12:12 pm

    I’m 16 and Me and my boyfriend use protection when we have sex and use the pull out method, however I am a few days late and I am starting to worry as the condom was a bit loose when we used it. Should I be worried? …

  • Seiko June 8, 2015, 2:16 pm

    I’m 13 years old and my period is a month late. This is my second year of menstruation. I’ve never had sex, so I don’t think I’m pregnant. I’m underweight, but not by much, I think I weigh somewhere between 80-90 pounds. I’m exactly 5 feet tall. Should I be worried? Or is it normal to sometimes miss menstruation cycles at my age?

    • Rose June 15, 2015, 4:06 pm

      Yep, I’m having the exact same prob! >:l Same age, too.. except about 2-3 months for me…. I have high metabolism, and weigh 80-90, too D: but I’m wayyyyy too young to get preggers, so I think you’re fine. Just a clog somewhere maybe XDD

      • Rose June 15, 2015, 4:12 pm

        Or maybe it’s a sign you’re READY to get pregnant?? That’s what my mom says 😮

  • Ana June 8, 2015, 2:28 am

    Im 20 and have missed my period for 3-4 months strate after haveing an ovarian cyst, i also have extream pain in that area sometimes. Should i be concerned

  • Maria Cleary June 6, 2015, 2:23 pm

    ive been regular as clockwork for my periods up to this year, im 25 and still a virgin. I skipped march for my period and ive not missed may/june but was fine in april.
    I do work long night shifts and drive but i dont find myself stressed and exercise regulary. Should i visit a professional?

    • hafsa June 12, 2015, 6:57 am

      Hey, please did you find out why you missed your period, cause am experiencing the same thing and am slightly scared.

  • Moira June 6, 2015, 8:13 am

    Hi guys. Im 15 years old and im kinda worried because im still not having my period for almost a month and a half. I got my period last april 20 and its june 5 now. I know im not pregnant because i haven’t had sex yet. Its making me worry because it might be something, like a disease or what. Does somebody here got their period after a month or so? Please i badly need your answer. Thank you so much

    • Seiko June 8, 2015, 2:19 pm

      You’re not alone, I have the same problem. I’m 13, and my period is a month late and I’ve never had sex. I’m worried too

  • Clara June 5, 2015, 3:45 pm

    I’m 15, and I had my first period when I was 13. My periods have always been on time, until now. It’s a few days late, I still haven’t started. I know I’m not pregnant because I’ve never had sex. But I haven’t been stressed out about anything so I don’t know what else could be delaying/making me miss my period. Help?

  • Nperez June 4, 2015, 5:12 pm

    My husband and I have 3 boys we want to try for the girl. I am super regular every 25/26 days and have never missed a period since I can remember. Plus other than back pain I don’t get any symptoms before or during periods. Times I missed them was when I was pregnant with our boys. The thing is right after my last period on May7’15 we tried doing the scheduling of ovulation to get pregnant for the girl. My period was supposed to come last Sunday May31 and it hasn’t. I took 3 HPT and they we’re negative. I feel tired and had some cramping but that’s about it. Should I be worried and go see my Dr or wait it out. If I’m not pregnant how can I tell when I’m ovulating again se we can try to get pregnant? And by the way what are the odds I decide to try to get pregnant and miss my period that same cycle!

  • Halema June 1, 2015, 5:29 pm

    In the last 8 months, I have missed 4 periods, however, not consecutively. I missed one, then had one, then missed another, and had another, then missed a third. I then had my period for 2 months in a row and have now missed another again. I have always had problems with my periods, a lot of pain and irregular but I have still always had a period every month even if they have been late. I have missed a couple of periods before but it was always just one out of nearly a year, which i put down to stress. I first got my period when I was 11 and I am now 20. I have been to the doctor when i had missed 3 but she didn’t really say anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. : D

    • Halema June 1, 2015, 5:30 pm

      Also forgot to mention, I have never had sex before.

  • Vada May 23, 2015, 7:01 am

    So many comments….wow! I have been looking up pregnancy with false negatives and now this one. Missing period. I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I’ll gI’ve you the breakdown.

    I am 39, I have three children ages 12 yr, one going on 7 yr and I have a baby just turned 9 months.

    After the baby was born my period had no problems jumping back into regular action…like clockwork. But nothing now.

    My sister, niece and all my girls went on a little vacation and the way I calculate it I should have been coming on while I was there…no show!

    Ok, I’ve skipped a period before so I wasn’t worried…i just assumed the next one would show up with a vengeance! NOPE!!!!

    As of today I have taken 5 pregnancy test, one which was blood…all negative! I have slight symptoms of being pregnant; I’m cramping often, my breast have a very slight tenderness to them but nothing like when I was pregnant with my there girls. The nausea I feel comes and goes very quickly. Dizziness come very often and don’t get me on the mood swings! Oh…did I mention b the lower back pain. I have not seen my period since the 28th of March 2015 and today is the 23rd of May….where is my period!!!!

    So since my cousin just had a baby a few weeks ago and for the first 5 months tested negative, also just read article after article about women testing negative almost their whole pregnancy I just mentioned to my doctor that we will test again next week and if it’s still negative then we will just do a pregnancy sonogram just to make sure nothing is in there.

    My family and friends think I’m pregnant but I need to be 100% sure! Trust me…we were not trying but not being 100% careful either so…

    You know what’s funny…my 12 year old just started her period for the first time two days ago and mine went on vacation two months ago.

    • DP Nguyen May 26, 2015, 10:21 pm

      Have you take a HPT or gone to the doctor for a blood pregnancy test? It is also possible that you are entering perimenopause when your periods become less regular…

  • sara May 22, 2015, 3:39 pm

    I’m 29 and I have not had a period in the last five months but I’m not pregnant I went to see doctor to check to see if I was pregnant but it came back negative so I don’t get what it could be. What should I do?

    • Ming Doe June 28, 2015, 8:40 am

      Sara. Im going to the doctor next week, im terrified, but i also took some at home tests, i totally feel you. Please lmk if you find anything out. Ill do the same. Stay strong Sara

  • Boyd May 22, 2015, 10:17 am

    I’m 36 years old and I recently took out the implenon for having it for six years in November. My first period came back on in January 15, 2015. I’ve been having regular cycles lasting four days but in March my period came on twice within 20 days. After that cycle, my period has not came on at all. I’ve taken 4 pregnancy test and they all came out negative. What could be happening and I will make an appointment. I’m very sexually active.

  • Mel May 19, 2015, 8:12 pm

    Wow, it’s amazing to see how many comments on here were just posted, so I figured I’d post mine.

    I’m 30 years old and haven’t had my period for over 2 months, almost 3 now (85 days to be exact and still counting :(

    I saw 2 gynos, I got a blood test to check thyroid and pregnancy (another gyno also did a urine test to check). She said they came out normal, everything is negative.

    I’ve also gained almost 10 pounds out of no where (mind you I exercise everyday and eat fairly clean/well…I have not weighed this much in my life except for when I was on birth control).

    I’m not stressed in any way with my lifestyle so I don’t understand the cause of this. It’s bothersome and they said after 3 months they want to put me on a 10-day hormone to restart my period again which I am hoping NOT to have to do because I don’t believe in synthetic hormones.

    Any natural remedies that have worked for anyone?

  • Claire May 19, 2015, 6:15 am

    Hi, I’m 14 and I’ve had my period for almost four years now, but I have missed it for the last two months. I have missed periods before but apparently they are often irregular until you have your period for a couple of years. I still seem to have an irregular cycle, even after three years, should I get this checked out?

  • Kierra May 16, 2015, 8:32 pm

    I’m 16 and have had my period every 25 days for the last 4 years and now I haven’t had it for over 6 months. I’m not sexually active so I cant be pregnant so I don’t know why its stopped. Any ideas?

I recently was supposed to start my period but havent. That was about 2 weeks ago. I feel like I am but it is not happening. Any ideas??

  • Nikki May 9, 2015, 5:37 am

    Hi. I am 20. I have had irregular menstruation in the past. Sometimes, it is on time. Sometimes, it’s late. My last menstruation ended last April 4. It was a short one. It’s May 9 already. I have never had any sexual activity so I am sure I am not pregnant. What do you think is my problem since I’ve had this case before?

    Btw, I have been weight-conscious lately and I travel a lot, too. I am also an athlete.

  • Blue May 4, 2015, 11:32 pm

    I’m 18+ girl . I always had very irregular periods and checked up with my cousin who is a gynecologist .. She asked me to get some tests and told me all is well after seeing the reports .. I was not very convinced but then I stopped bothering . But now it has been 2 months – 12 days and I didn’t get my period ..I’m not sexually active (hav never been either) and last five cycles were very short , light and painless .. Also my younger sister and mother have normal 28 days cycle and so I’m more bothered .. Plz help !

  • hiswifey April 29, 2015, 4:45 pm

    Hi, I’m 19 years old. I’m 32 days late. Me and my fiance are very sexually active and we do not use protection due to the fact that I’ve been told from the time I was 14 or 15 that I have a very slim chance of having kids. About a year ago I didn’t get my period for about 6 or 7 months. (Due to stress of moving across the country.) I’m not stressed out about anything at all anymore. I’m 100% completely stress free. He’s came in me everytime we’ve had sexual intercourse, even on days when I was fertile and ovulating. I’ve taken about 3 or 4 home pregnancy tests since my first missed period. I’ve been extremely tired lately, I’ve been vomiting, my lower back has been killing me, I have headaches every single day and they are horrible. I have a feeling that I may be pregnant but I don’t really have the money to go to the doctor and find out for sure. Other than those 6 or 7 months my period was always on time and I was never late. I don’t believe 100% what the doctors told me about having kids due to the fact my sister was told that she would never have a child and she has a 2 year old baby boy. I do have a problem with ovarian cyst though. Every month I get extremely bad cramps and I feel like I’m going to get my period, but there’s nothing. I’ve spotted a couple days last month. I just need advice..

    I had a baby 10 weeks ago and am not breastfeeding. I have not started my period since the baby was born. I barely even had any bleeding after the birth. I am 40 years old and this was my 6th child and I have never had this happen before. The dr. put me on 400mg of progesterone for 10 days and still nothing. Not even spotting. Do you know what could be causing this? I had my hormone levels check and a pregnancy test at the same time and all was normal. I’m starting to get worried.

    Thank you,

    Hello, wonderful article! I do have questions though. I am 25 and about 6-7 months ago I had my IUD removed due to bad headaches and other side effects. Once the IUD was out I started noticing a huge improvement in my headaches. I continued to have a period for the first 3 months I was off my bc, but these last 3 months, I have not had a period. I have taken numerous home tests, but all have come up negative. Just recently I noticed my areoles getting darker, my appetite has been on a roller coaster, experienced nausea for about 2 weeks straight,my basal body temp has been rather low (compared to normal) but I have felt like I’m constantly in a sauna. Also, I had to purchase a bigger bra due to my breasts growing (practically overnight went from a b cup to a c cup). What kind of suggestions would you have for me? I just want answers, and no where have I read that has explained all of my symptoms at the same time.

    Thank you in advance for your help, knowledge, and advice.

    Im 28 years old, had a miscarriage about 4 months ago right after my loss my period came right on track on the exact date it always does. Now since that date I have been 2 months without menstrating took a pregnancy test and came out neg. im a little paranoid because they never checked to see if my miscarrage was compleat they just sent me home because my hcg levels were low.

  • sarahjeffries April 19, 2015, 11:44 pm

    Your period time will turn unusual depends on your health and your condition. You also have to get blood pregnancy test to make sure. Another possibility is that you’re having irregular periods for some reason. Things like gaining or losing weight or excess stress or exercise can throw your cycle off from month to month.

  • Cam April 19, 2015, 12:38 pm

    Hello. Alright. My period is three days late. It has come on the 16th for the month for the past two months or so. So, on the 7th of March I believe it was, I took the morning after pill after having sex that night before. I bled a couple days later and then my period came on March 16th, which lasted 7-8 days this time. Now, I was stupid for not using a condom, for say, 30 seconds. A condom was put on for the rest of the time. He came inside, with the condom on. I am wondering about precum. I am stressing myself to the max and am going over every detail many times. My nipples are tender, as they always are a few days before my period, so that is giving me some hope..and no period. They have been sore for about 2-3 days now and I ve heard that s a symptom of pregnancy. So more stress. Yesterday, I had some mucousy discharge with barely any bit of blood when I wiped after urinating and that was the only time I noticed that.
    In the past month, I have been stressed over a few things, doing intense workouts twice a week, as well as having what seems to be a yeast infection (I’ve never had one, and it has come back a few days ago). Could these three reasons be why my period is three days late? I cannot be pregnant right now, it is not the time for me. I will be going to my gynecologist to talk to her about this yeast infection and my late period.

  • Breanne April 16, 2015, 9:23 am

    I’m 21 and not sexually active. I’ve had my period since I was 11 and I’ve always been on my regular 28-30 day schedule. As of today I am 11 days late and I don’t understand why. There have only been a handful of times where I have been late and each time it was only for 2-4 days at the most. I have the stomach cramps, the gas, the fatigue, and nausea like I normally do when it’s that time of the month, but it’s not coming on. Within the last 6 months I’ve maybe gained about 10 pounds because of laziness and not having energy to exercise, so I don’t know if the weight gain has anything to do with it or not. I’m just confused.

When i was pregnant with my daughter and they did a pap. my cells came back abnormal and they wanted to do a biopsy once i had her to make sure it wasnt cancer. I never went back to do another pap. because alot of my friends told me that was normal and once i had the baby my cells would go back to normal. Im starting to get scared that i might have cervical cancer because since i first started my period when i was 13 or 14 i have never missed my period and i am now 25. Please help me get some answers, i would really appricate it. Thanks

  • Anonymous April 10, 2015, 11:04 pm

    I’ve been having issues with my period since may 2014! I have had my period for almost 6 years. My periods are on and off all of a sudden. I can go up to 60 days without a period and it varies from a normal 30day cycle to 60-65 day cycle. this is so random because I started to experience this 3yrs after my first period. my cycles were normal for a while but this was out of the blue and I still have this issue. I have never gone three months without a period though. No I am not sexually active nor do I take birth control

  • Moreber April 9, 2015, 1:52 pm

    Hi. I’ve had regular periods since I first started my cycle at the age of 14. However in September my period began messing around. It was a 40 day cycle then in October it was late again. Both these times I thought I was pregnant however I was not. Since November it has begun to become regulated coming on the 6th-8th of each month. Then this month it is so far 3 days late with none of my regular symptoms so I know it will not be here anytime soon. However last month it lasted a full week with usual period pain on the first two days then the last two as well. I know I cannot be pregnant has we used a condom every time and none broke. I am so stressed and worried. I would love if you could give me some advice.

  • Ak___ April 9, 2015, 11:22 am

  • su April 8, 2015, 5:57 am

    hi, i’m 27 and haven’t had a period in nearly 3 months. I came off the hormonal evra patch contraceptive in january. Could that be what has stopped my cycles? Is there any way i can aid my body in getting back to normal? we want another baby :)

  • Summer April 7, 2015, 1:38 pm

    Alright, so I’m 18 years old and I’ve had regular periods since i was 14. Last month, though, I missed my period. I am currently 30 days late with no signs of starting. I’ve taken multiple pregnancy tests, all of which were negative, and I even went to the doctor and had a blood test done, which also came back negative. During this time i was 99% sure i was pregnant and let my boyfriend cum inside of me. Even though i skipped a period could i still get pregnant? Also, i recently got into a minor car accident and was checked by the doctors and they said i was fine. I haven’t had a period since my accident though and was wondering if maybe that could be the reason it’s so late? Please help me. I keep on self diagnosing myself with cancer or tumors or pregnancy lol

  • cupcake April 2, 2015, 9:09 pm

    I’m 20. I have a daughter. I was 18 when I had her and just this October I missed my period and it came the next month lighter and shorter. I missed it again and it came the next month lighter and shorter. Now I don’t get them at all. I’ve always had irregular periods. Very long and heavy. It’s been 3 full months without a period and I’m worried. The doctor said if I didn’t get it for 3 months to see an obgyn, time to make an appointment. Also, I’m not pregnant. I’m so scared of whatever’s wrong with me…any insight?

  • Rach April 1, 2015, 7:30 pm

    Hey. I’m 19 years old and have been having my period since I was about 13. I’ve never had a regular cycle. The shortest gap between my periods has almost always been 2 months, and my longest gap between is 9 months. I’ve never had sex before, nor do I have any STDs. I went to the doctor’s and had an ultrasound, and they did not find any cysts in my uterus. My flow is usually rather heavy when I DO get it and lasts for about 7-10 days. It doesn’t bother me, but I’m curious as it might be a health issue. I don’t really exercise and my weight doesn’t fluctuate much at all.
    As far as I know, whenever I’ve gotten any blood or urine tests in the past nothing has shown up. I’m pretty curious at this point.
    Thanks for your time.

  • nervous March 29, 2015, 8:26 pm

    Can you get pregnant from spilling semen from your mouth onto your body and then immediately washing it off with soap??? — can you get pregnant from a pee-pee not entering you but like…poking you once? Tell me I’m being stupid please. please please.

    • Chill March 29, 2015, 8:50 pm

      If you are calling a penis a “pee pee” you should not be doing anything sexual… period. However, unless you are spilling semen on to your genital areas, you won’t have a problem… And as for your second question, it highly unlikely, but the penis may have had pre-cum on it when entering, so technically, sure you could get pregnant. But seriously…. don’t be stupid, wear a condom.

  • rabbit March 29, 2015, 10:37 am

    hi, im 15 until may, and im sexually active (protectively). the last time i had sex was in december, i havent done anything since then. my period comes on every month but this month it was suppose to come on like 2 weeks ago but it hasnt. i play sports well as of running track, could that be why ?? should i really worry about it?

    • hippity hop March 30, 2015, 11:18 am

      If you haven’t done anything since December, and you’re period has been on time since, your missing it is most likely from the sports… don’t stress yourself too much. If you’re still worried, take a test.

  • Shannon March 27, 2015, 8:05 pm

  • lonni March 25, 2015, 10:55 pm

    Hi, so I am usually on birth control called microgestion. this past month I forgot to take it. I was one day late on my period and it was normal for me. the next day I was sexually active. now Im 9 days late. I wander if the irregularity of me taken the birth control could effect my period or if it was because I had sex.

  • jordan March 25, 2015, 9:27 am

    Hi my name is jordan i am a couple months late and i am not sexually active. So i dont have any idea whats going on and I just started my period in november and I am 14, so if y0u could please reply to me that would be great to help me understand why my period is so late or if this is just a normal thing when you just start your period.

  • Lee March 23, 2015, 8:45 am

    My period is about 40 days late now, I’ve missed two scheduled periods. I was sexually active with my SO before I missed the first one, and again before I missed the second one. Unfortunately, we didn’t use a condom, but he pulled out with sufficient enough time where nothing hit the necessary areas for me to get pregnant. (It sounds silly, I know.) I woke up this morning feeling very dizzy, and I’m really worried that I could be pregnant. I don’t have money to buy a pregnancy test, and I just don’t really know what to do.

    • Really March 30, 2015, 11:13 am

  • Rice February 27, 2015, 10:28 pm

    I’m 20, and I have been taking birth control since I was 16. I had my period last month and have taken my birth control pills every day at the same time this month. I have had a very stressful month though. I expected my period Monday and it is now almost Saturday. I took a at home pregnancy test on Wednesday night and then again Thursday morning and both came back negative, but I still have not received my period. What are the chances I’m pregnant? I plan on taking another at home test Sunday but I don’t know what to do if they come back negative and I still haven’t received my period.

    I am 23 and I’m a little stressed out its been nine months since my last period I’ve taken hpts and even done blood tests they have all come back negative for pregnancy, my doctor seems to not really be interested and says not to worry but in the nine months I have gained over 20lbs my breasts seem bigger I have new very reddish purple stretch marks on my tummy, thighs, breasts, and butt, I have issues lately with lower back pain and comfort, crazy mood swings, I expeirance dizziness regularly and pain in my abdomen, yet she still tells me it’s nothing I can’t help but feel like it might be important, I have always had irregular periods since the begining but I’ve never gone this long and with these symptoms, I desperately need answers preferably before spending a ton of money on doctors that continue to tell me nothing is wrong. could it be something serious? I’m begining to feel like people think I’m making it up:(

    • Sarah March 12, 2015, 6:08 pm

      I have missed my period for 3 almost 4 months. I just went to my doctor and she took it very seriously. She is testing a whole bunch of my hormone levels and did an ultrasound. I am telling you this because I think you should go somewhere else. I think any respectable doctor would be very concerned by your symptoms.

  • Beth February 3, 2015, 11:15 pm

    Hi. I’m 20, and while I’ve never had entirely regular cycles before (always a few weeks late or a couple days early), it’s not something I’ve worried about til now. My last period was back in early June 2014. Since then I’ve taken the best pregnancy tests I could get my hands on every two weeks, and they’re always negative. There’s no bloating or tenderness, no cramping, mood swings, or headaches… I feel way better than I have in a long time considering my cycle used to be hell for me. Unfortunately, none of that makes me any less worried. I can’t afford to see a doctor, but not knowing what’s wrong with me is driving me insane! Any ideas?

    Hi my name is Jewel and I am currently 18 and will turn 19 later this year. I started my period at the beginning of my sophomore year (I was 15). My period was often light and would always skip months. After one year I stopped getting my period for almost two years. I just got it a couple days ago and am so relieved, but im also confused as to why this occurred.

  • najea January 29, 2015, 9:10 pm

    Hi. So im 25. 2 months ago, my period was 5 days late. Last month, it was 5 days early. And this month, im on day 8 of a missed period. The previous 2 months, my period was slightly lighter, nothing too serious though. What can be my issue? Took a few tests, negative. I bought the ClearBlue test that gives you the estimated weeks and im gonna take it tonight. Any advice/suggestions?

  • Haylee January 29, 2015, 3:55 pm

    Im 21 years old. My period is 15 days late and in the mean time Ive had two negative pregnancy tests. I went off the pill months ago and know this is not the cause. I do however live a very busy life and have been wondering if it could be stress related? The strange thing is, that I dont really feel very stressed a lot of the time. Every now and then I get cramps, but nothing happens. I can sense also that nothing is going to happen. Its like my body just suddenly decided to pack up its reproductive organs and take them for a holiday without bothering to tell me where or why.

  • pamela January 26, 2015, 12:23 am

    Hello, it was since late august- early September when I had my last period. I’m very worried now. I could explain some things I’ve been through reasons which I think caused this huge delay for my period. Under going stress since I lost my job(searching for jobs since Aug) anixity levels fluctuate and I believe are higher now (also more nerves prior to interviews) and bad relationship problems. And I Had been a heroin user for 2 years, stopped 2 weeks ago and recently joined a program and taking methadone daily (Actually I took Methadone 5 times in October, had an attempt to quit). I’ve had regular periods for my entire life but since September, was Methadone the cause? I’m scheduled to see a doc tomorrow, however my main question is, could drugs cause a delay with your period? I know it may sound stupid because I obviously know that drugs are bad, however I really need to know for my own experiences and aswell the topic for Drugs wasn’t mentioned or commented in the article. Thanks in advance!

  • Nancy Barron January 24, 2015, 10:24 pm

    I know this might be a stupid question, however I guess i’m still not wanting to accept it if you may… I am 36 years old, I have always been regular except 2 times in my life and those are the two times I ended up being pregnant. In October I was under extreme stress and did not get my period so I know that is the reason for missing my period that month. In November I got my menstrual on the 4th and in December it had moved to the 10th. It is now January 24th and still have not gotten my menstrual, I do feel fluttering in my lower abdomin and a bit of tugging in my belly button area. I took a pregnancy test and came out negative (how ever it might have been too early because my test before have never showed till after 6weeks at least). My stomach is looking a bit “pregnancyish”, feels hard, then softens, very mild nausea ( no vomitting), bloating, urinating more, increase of appetite, etc… Is it possible that it is all in my head or making my body believe that i’m pregnant or am I infact pregnant???

  • Rose January 23, 2015, 10:18 am

    I’m on the pill since forever and i take it everyday at the same time religiously. Unfortunately i miss one day, but i took it with the pill of the next day when i realize it (so i took 2 pill on the last day 3 week pills box), i start the box on a Monday always and in the no pill week i get my period on Wednesdays. Some months i get my period 1 day late as top, but now im 3 days late and im kind of freaking out because this has never happens in all the year i’ve been taking the pill. I am sexually active but im really cautious, so its hard to believe that is the reason (but i know it’s not impossible tho) and i had sex a bit more than 2 week ago the last time, the wierd thing is that a have been feeling cramps, and i feel like im in my period as always. Btw i satrted taking the pill because i have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, should i do a HPT? or should i wait a few days?

  • ange January 21, 2015, 5:31 pm

    ok I’ve been waiting for my period for 2 months now . I’ve took 2 home preg tests when i was first late to have my period they were both negative. Then went to the doctors a week and half ago to have blood work done to see and that came out negitive .he also did the hormones test they were normal. aswell got a iron test and that was low but I’ve always been a bit low. Today took another pregnancy test still negative. I’m getting kinda annoyed at the situation. He said that i should wait and see if i miss another one and then he will look more into it .. kinda a half ass answer to me . Should i go to another doctor?
    did use the pill until my first missed period then stopped taking them and used condoms b/c it could have been the pill that was making me miss .

    I’m 18. I haven’t had a period after my birthday (august 2014) and its January of 2015. Ive taken pregnancy tests and they’re all negative. I’ve been on prozac for about a month last year and was taken off. The ending of April of 2014 I had depo for birth control but only one shot which lasted three months. I’ve had few periods after that but since August nothing. What might possibly be going on ?

I’ve never show the symptoms asociated with a period even when i had it the first time when i was 11 as well and have travel twice last month. I missed it once before in the last year back in August or so but i’m still a little scared. What should i do?

  • Regina January 12, 2015, 11:40 am

    Hi, I am 19. So… I am a really anxious person when it comes to this topic. I take the pill every day at the same time everyday (Some times at the same minute, I know, it’s weird) and I always have safe sex. But this month I was extra scared of being pregnant so I bought two pregnancy tests and took one on the day my period was supposed to start and one the day after, both said I was not, but I am still not bleeding. I have the symptoms of a period, but no blood. This is the first time this has happened and I think it from stress and anxiety and from the pill, should I be worried?

      It might be stress and anxiety, but I definitely would take a home pregnancy test, just to be sure.

    Hello there! I am a 17 year old girl, and I have been having menstrual problems for 2 years now. I have always had late periods. 2-3 months late. But last year I missed my period for more than 5 months. I went to my doctor and she prescribed 10 hormonal pills, then told me that it was necessary for me to start taking birth control pills. I refused to take those pills. Last time I got my period was June 13, 2014, & till this day I have not gotten my period. It has been almost 7 months and I still have not gotten my period. I started taking the birth control pills that were prescribed, but I have been having unpleasant side effects. Hot flashes, I get dizzy, I feel the need to throw up, and I get headaches. I need help on what to do.

  • Greeshma December 17, 2014, 12:10 pm


    I am 26 year old and married for 1 and a half year. I was active all my life and was a professionally working person. Since 5 months I am at home due to relocation. I had my first period when I was 13 year old, from then its never been regular. It keeps varying its regular for few months then its 45day cycle otherwise it used to skip for couple of months. But after marriage it has been between 30-45 days. Recently I traveled and its been 2months now and I have not had my period. Its starting to worry me. I am not pregnant either also I am on medication for a slight hyperthyroid. But it has never affected me on my weight. I am idle most of the time. Is that the reason I am not having regular periods. Please help me…

  • eli December 17, 2014, 12:05 am

    I am 19 and currently taking birth control. I want to stop taking the pill but my question is, can I become pregnant if I stop taking the pill? What if I abstain from having sex when I decide to stop taking the pill, will I still get pregnant?
    For example, if my partner and I have sex a day before I stop taking the pill, will I become pregnant? Please help!

  • Emma December 14, 2014, 12:49 am

    hi I always had my cycle 28 days and after having my first child went back this way. I had my second child 3 months ago and I have only had one perio since having my second child. I did have problems after giving birth as I had to be taken into theatre to have my palcenta to be remover and I lost 2 litres off blood so had to have a blood transfusion. I it possible that the experience I went through is the cause of my cycle to have shifted. I have done a pregnancy test and it was negative as I know this would be the first thing to rule out. Could you please help me or give me any advice to what could be wrong

  • @worl December 11, 2014, 4:18 am

  • Bug2013 November 28, 2014, 1:53 am

    I’m 20. The last time I had my period was when I moved into my apartment 3 hours away from my parents, it has been 4 months now. I moved in with my best friend, who is on the Mirana IUD. She never gets her period. I was wondering if I could maybe be on the same cycle as my roommate causing me not to get a period. I’ve taken two pregnancy test also. Just weird because i’ve been late but not this late.
    Thanks in advance

  • MONICA November 25, 2014, 10:43 am

    I haven’t had my period in 8 months! I’ve taken pregnancy tests, home and blood, and they are negative. I’m 29 yrs old. I got off the pill (after being on it for 4 yrs) in February and my last period was in March….very frustrating considering that we’ve been trying to have a baby. Can this also be contributing to my inability to lose weight? I work out 3-5 x a week and eat very well, but only manage to maintain weight not loose…..any info is much appreciated. Thank you

  • sara November 24, 2014, 8:23 am

    I normally get my periods on time.. however this month I am over two weeks late.. I did take a contraceptive pill in august.. and in september and october my periods came as normal… however just this month I am veryyy late than usual…
    Not sure if its due to new job stress and diet changes… but its is very stressful at the moment…. HELP!

  • Regina Kelly November 23, 2014, 11:30 am

    I have been missing my period for over 2 weeks now. I always seem to go two to three mouth with it being right on time like clock work but every now and again it would just stop coming. I’m not pregnancy. I also lose of sex drive. I do workout a lot I’m in the gym every day for two hours and I’m very hard on my self about what i eat and what i look like, I’m not under weight i had a lot of upper belly pain for the last year and have to be super careful on what i eat. I’m not sure what to do to help change it and get back to good schedule.

    Thank you

    • Katie November 24, 2014, 3:07 am

      You might want to be tested for Celiac’s disease; it is connected to problems with the thyroid, which in turn can make your period stop. If you’re really worried about it, you should go see a doctor about it anyway, but Celiac can cause abdominal pain, because various foods are causing your body to attack itself.
      Hope this helps, or at least maybe leads you in the right direction!

  • Ally November 16, 2014, 1:51 am

    I’m 13 and I’ve had my period since I was 10. I thought periods were supposed to be regular after 2 years but mine are still irregular. I didn’t get a period in May, didn’t get a period June, got a normal one in July, didn’t get one in August, and got normal ones in both September and October. My period for October ended on November 5th, and it’s only been 10 days. But my period just started again. Is that bad?

    • Anastasia Zhivotov November 20, 2014, 7:37 am

      That’s perfectly normal. The younger you start your period, the longer it takes to stabilize.
      years = 1 year*
      *this number is variant since the average woman says it took 2 years to normalize and maturity levels were older several decades ago. As of 2014, the average American girl will reach puberty by 11.5 months.

For grins and giggles I did a home pregnancy test and it was negative. I have had signs of getting ready to start, but nothing yet. Guess it’s time to go to the doctor.

Aug 11th I got my periods after 33 day cycle and then Sept 12th I got my period. Its been now 45 days and no sign of periods. I have been having huger attacks, heart burn and gas but both my blood test and HPT are negative. I have never been pregnant and keep wondering why this keeps happening and am sexually active. I got my ultrasound done earlier this year and it was all clear. My cycle has been 50 days starting Aug 2013 – July 2014. Please help!!

  • Mikayla October 23, 2014, 9:16 am

    Hi, so im 19 currently and ive had regular periods for many years now like normal. Back in august i started my period on the 8th like normal. Then it got around the end of august and i started having sex with my boyfriend regularly. We did use protection at first but now we dont. Thats not the problem though. In september around the time i was supposed to start my period for that month, around the 8th, i got a UTI which was confirmed by the doctor and i received antibiotics for it. This UTI didnt cause burning whenever i had to pee but instead caused blood to come out only when i went to the bathroom and maybe some spotting during it. This was NOT my period for ive had my period for long enough to know the difference. I took the antibiotics and it cleared up. At this same time i had gotten a prescription for birth control. About a week later the UTI came back and was bleeding again. I was beginning to be annoyed and worried i wasnt getting my period so i took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Right after that i had taken the Plan B morning after pill because of an accident with my boyfriend during sex. Anyway, i went back to the doctor and again it said i had a UTI. I took more antibiotics for that and it cleared up. A few days after that it started to bleed yet again. I went back to the doctors and they determined there was absolutely nothing wrong and it wasnt a UTI. It was still bleeding though. So basically because they told me it wasnt a UTI i wated about a week, all the while bleeding when i go to the bathroom and not my period blood. I knew this shouldnt be happening so i went back, and they told me that there was a bit of indication of a UTI but it should have been taken care of by the meds. I was perscribed more antibiotics for a longer period of time and so far the bleeding has not came back. I am very angry because all i want is for my period to come so i can start taking the birth control, since it says i have to wait till the sunday after my next period to take it. Well that next period hasnt come yet. Do you have any idea what might be wrong? What should i do? Ive gotten the UTI all set but still no ones told me why i havnt had my period since august 8th. Please help! Thanks.

  • Leah October 22, 2014, 5:49 pm

    I’ve missed 8 cycles. I’m 41 and healthy. I have been to a GYN and female hormone and thyroid bloodwork and ultrasound are fine. I’m not stressed. My periods for the past two years have become lighter and lighter. I haven’t gained or lost weight. I do not have headaches. I am however hot at night and sometimes the day. (not bad though) I’ve even tried Birth Control pills for two months but no period. I’m wondering if I should pursue another doctor for tests or just believe my current doctor that all is ok?

  • promise October 21, 2014, 11:04 am

Now its been two months that I did not have my menses but 3 weeks ago I experienced spotting for about 4 days and now after that 3 weeks I’m again experiencing spotting but this time a bit heavier than the last time, yet it is very light compared to my periods. Now its been 5 days that am still spotting and I don’t think that am pregnant. I even conducted 2 home pregnancy tests which were negative. Please do reply. I need your help.

    Can you pls advice on this?
    Thanks in advance.

    • DP Nguyen October 19, 2014, 2:49 am

      you might want to consider getting one of those ovulation kits, to figure out when you’re ovulating. sometimes, if you miss a period, it’s possible that you didn’t ovulate that much but it is definitely helpful when you’re ttc. Also, take another home pregnancy test if you don’t get your period.

  • Jasmine October 14, 2014, 1:13 pm

    I am 23 years old and have missed my period for six months now. I have taken numerous pregnancy tests but they always come out negative so I know I cannot be pregnant. One week out of every month I would start getting cramps, cravings, and become moody (as if I were about to start) but would never get my period. I have always had problems with my period but this would have to be the worst that has happened to me. I am not on birth control (I was when I first started getting my period because it was so heavy and the pain was so bad that I couldn’t get out of bed). I haven’t seen any doctors because I don’t have medical insurance or enough money to pay for insurance or seeing a doctor. Yesterday I had my period for the first time in those sixth months and I had thought I would never be so happy to l get it. It wasn’t heavy, just spotting. But today it is completely gone. I am worried about this but I do not know what to do especially when it comes to seeking medical attention. Do you know what could be the cause of this? I am worried that this may ruin my chance of some day actually having any kids which is something I want.

    • DP Nguyen October 19, 2014, 2:50 am

      you sound like you might have some hormonal problems at play. i’d recommend you go see a gynecologist to figure out what is causing your symptoms

  • Samantha October 13, 2014, 5:38 pm

    Before the spotting i had my periods every month. They were heavy and lasted 4 days. August 15 2014 I spotted only that day and I had intercourse with my husband. We’ve been trying for a baby but no luck. I was on the depo but been off for 1 1/2 now. I haven’t started my period at all but negative pregnancy test. I am so confused. Still no periods October 13, 2014

    • Ashleigh October 19, 2014, 8:32 am

      Oh my goodness.. my dates match this exactly! I was told that the stress of trying has caused me to stop ovulating. It is even more stressful knowing this!!
      Will our bodies suddenly just ovulate or will we have a period first and then ovulate? I’m just wondering whether to keep doing pregnancy tests or just wait for my period to come?

  • Nicole October 13, 2014, 5:05 pm

    I read the entire article, and I suppose I shouldn’t worry, but I am 3-4 days late on my period arriving. I take Lo Loestrin Fe and Lexapro(Generic). I’ve taken a few at home tests and they are all negative. I’m still slightly freaking out. I don’t know what could be causing this. I have taken birth control in the past and never missed a period. However, since this is my third month being back on it, I have been getting my period every 2 weeks. I got it about 2-3 weeks ago, but now I am 3-4 days into my new(Month 4) Pack and the sugar pills from the last pack haven’t given me my period yet. Please give me any information you can think of as to why this would be happening if I’m not pregnant.

    Thank You,

  • samantha October 7, 2014, 2:55 pm

    i normally have regular period, my last period was August 23rd, 2014. I took 1 pregnancy test that was negative, i am getting severe lower abdominal pains. What can be the cause of this

  • Rebecca October 6, 2014, 6:19 am

    I am almost 35. My periods are completely off balance. My last cycle was 16 days so I had two last month. I am now 24 days into this cycle and my average is 22 days. I’m not having any menstrual symptoms at all so I’m concerned I may not start at all. I’m not on BC but we use protection everytime. I also try to chart but my periods are irregular so its hard to tell when I’m ovulating.

  • kylie October 5, 2014, 4:03 pm

    I’m 8 days late and I’ve been nauseous the last couple days but I haven’t had sex since June or july. Can I be pregnant??

  • Ashley September 20, 2014, 4:52 am

    Hi how are you out of no where my periods have stopped coming each month
    For example I had a period in May then nothing until July and now we are in September and still nothing does this sound like premature ovary failure to you ?
    I have also taken plenty of test and I am not pregnant

  • Concered Teen September 10, 2014, 4:13 pm

    Hi I am a 14 year old girl and i recently got my period in early June 2014. i am not sexually active at all but i missed my period. The projected date was Sept. 7, it is now Sept 10th. I am concerned what it could be. I have been under a lot of stress and intense sports practice every day, which could be a reason as your article said.

  • shaquasa September 6, 2014, 9:58 pm

    hi im 19 and I recently just started being sexually active with my boyfriend he thinks that he ejaculated inside of me with a condom on and I went to the doctors office and got a pregnancy test in the beginning of august and it was negative but the I haven’t gotten for period for the whole month and idk what to do and say ?

  • Elizabeth September 2, 2014, 6:57 am

    I’m 26, sexually active, using condoms, and generally regular, 29 or 30 days. Last month my period came on day 34 but then was totally normal. I assumed it was due to stress from working so much. Today is day 35 of this cycle, still nothing. I took a pregnancy test yesterday which came back negative and throughout the last month didn’t notice any broken condoms or anything (boyfriend and I are very good about checking before and after). I had some cramping a few days ago, a spot of blood, and now some pink/brownish discharge…is this just my cycle thrown off from being late two months ago or should I be more concerned? Thank you so much for any advice.

  • Malinda September 1, 2014, 2:37 pm

    Hi, I’m 17 years old. I’ve been a few days late on my period before but not two weeks late. I know I’m not pregnant because I had my period last month and haven’t had sex in between then and my supposed to be start date this month. I’ve been showing signs of starting but it’s taking a while for me to start. I just started back to school so I figured it might be the change in my sleeping schedule.

  • Amber August 27, 2014, 1:49 pm


    I am 21 years old. I have not had a period in two months. I definitely know that I am not pregnant. I have taken birth control for a few years, but stopped taken it back in December. I started taking it again the month of March or April then stopped again because I didn’t have the money for it. My last period was in June. I missed July and I am missing this months. But I also just started taking my birth control again last week. I have been cramping like I am about to start but nada. Do I just have to wait or should I call my doctor now?

  • ChuxWife August 20, 2014, 5:14 pm

    I have always been fairly regular. 4 months ago my period was two weeks late. The next month was fine. Then two weeks late again. Almost two weeks late now. Still waiting. MISERABLE. I have felt like I am going to start for the last two weeks. Achy and moody. I hate this. Had tubes tied over three years. I am positive I am not pregnant. Any ideas what is going on?

  • jobi August 18, 2014, 3:35 am

    hi im 21..i am diagnosed w/ heart failure (PDA specifically),and also anemia last july 2013…i have normal period before ..and started taking up medications such as diuretics until now..and my period does not come since i am diagnosed..im so worried.pls help.

  • srans August 14, 2014, 2:18 am

    I am 22 years old. i got my last period at may 31 and still now i didn’t get. i have no any other problems like gaining weight, being stressed etc. I am a virgin. what is the problem?
    what to do to get periods regularly?

  • Celest July 30, 2014, 10:08 am

    My name is Celest and I am 17 years old. I do take birth control and I regularly have my period. I have missed my last two periods though. The first month I was specifically trying to avoid my period by not taking my reminder pills because I heard they’re unessesary to take and I was on vacation and did not want my period that week. But I figured I would have my period the month after that like normal and I haven’t. I haven’t missed any pills this month either. Is the absence of this second period the cause of me not taking my brown pills last month?

  • mary July 29, 2014, 10:41 am

    Hi I am 31 years old. I removed one of my ovaries due to a borderline cancer 2 years ago. since then my periods were irregular but I’ve never missed one. from May me and my husband decided to have baby and within past 3 months that we are trying i missed my periods twice and got period twice in one month. I know that my other ovary still has cyst in it but I don’t know if having unprotected sex is causing this or its the cyst that has grown since February. anyways I’m going to do another ultrasound on Friday but i want a second opinion as well.

  • April July 27, 2014, 8:46 am

    hi there! I need help. so my situation. I got my period twice on May2014 , one in the beginning and one towards the ending. I haven’t gotten it now its been 2 months. I’ve taken pregnancy test (first response) twice, one in the beginning of july 2014 and one towards the ending which is July 22. then i went to a clinic to get test again on friday which is july 25 and it’s also a negative. Before I got my period May i didn’t have sex till July 24 which we did use a condom. so am i pregnant , if not what is causing my period to be delayed?

    • NessaZ August 31, 2014, 9:15 pm

      So what happened? Im kinda in the same boat. I didn’t have a period twice in a month but I have recently issued a period.

  • Katlyn July 21, 2014, 6:45 pm

    I’m 21 years old and my cycles always seemed to be pretty regular.
    My last cycle was in the beginning of June ( I don’t regularly track them which I know is bad) and I am sexually active but we use condoms with spermicidal lube.
    It has been two weeks or so since we have had intercourse I haven’t gotten my period yet this month and I have taken a HPT but it came back negative.
    I have been working 2 jobs and a pet of mine died. It has been two weeks since we had intercourse. Plus I’m not really showing signs of early pregnancy.
    I just wanted to know if you think it’s just the stress. I dont think I’ve ever missed a period before but I also have never been under this much stress.
    I’m scared that I might be pregnant but I can’t tell my mom who I live with because I’m pretty sure she will kick me out.
    I just need some helpful advice or something.

  • Lani July 21, 2014, 3:54 am

    Hi, I’m19 years old and i am sexually active (with my bf for over a year) but i am concerned with my menstrual cycle, I haven’t had my period for about 4 to 5 months, I checked a pregnancy test and i’m not pregnant, i am a college student and I know i do stress out and have gained weight, ( appox. 40 pounds in a years time) does that have anything to do with it? do you have any idea why i havent had my period? thank you for all your help!

  • Christy July 19, 2014, 10:10 am

    Hi, im 29 and my menstrual cycles are 35 days i usually only miss one period a year if not any. I am now 80 days late and not pregnant although i experienced spotting two wks ago, i thought i would be getting my period but it has not came yet. I went to my pcp (before the spotting) and had some blood work done but told me everything looks normal. I had a miscarriage in January of this year and havent been able to get pregnant since.. should i be concerned?

  • Jessica July 19, 2014, 3:32 am

    I am 24 years old and haven’t had a period since the age of 20 I believe, I know I should go to a gyno I am just too scared as to what they will say. I was wondering if you could possibly give me an idea on what MAY BE going on so that I’m prepared when I make an appointment to see a doctor. I started my period when I was 14 and had them regularly for 3 years, after that they were irregular. Sometimes I’d miss two periods in a row and have my 3rd etc.

  • sree July 18, 2014, 3:26 am

    am sree am 15 years old i miss periods in this month and i didnt involve in any sexual act. I usually tensed about my periods in every month. am so afraid about this problm plz rply too me. if it is caused by my tension?

  • Tustic July 17, 2014, 1:33 pm

    I am 26years old. I got married in November last year. I saw my period last on 9th of May and since then my period has not come. When I went for a scan in June I was told that I was not pregnant but I had fibroid that I should not worry that my period would come. This is July and it still hasn’t come. Please what can I do.

    • DP Nguyen July 17, 2014, 11:04 pm

      I would go back to your OB/GYN and demand they figure out why your period has not come back yet. You need to get it checked out and for them to figure out why you haven’t had your period!

  • Amanda July 17, 2014, 9:34 am

    I am worried because I have never missed a period other than my two pregnancies and I’m a week late on my period, my husband has a vasectomy also. I took 3 tests on different days thinking the vasectomy failed in some way but all three came up negative. My cervix is high soft and feels closed to me. I’m trying not to stress but I am so regular that I can’t understand what’s going on. Any suggestions? Should I go to the doctor? Or wait it out?

    • DP Nguyen July 17, 2014, 11:14 pm

      I would wait another week, take another home pregnancy test. And if your period still doesn’t come, go to the doctor and get a blood test.

  • Kirsti July 15, 2014, 4:39 pm

    It’s been 7 and a half months since my last period. Last time I had just come off my pill in early jan 2014. I did loose abit of weight during that time but iv been healthy for the last 4months and nothing! Any possible causes? I’m a 21year old woman who is NOT pregnant.

    • DP Nguyen July 17, 2014, 11:16 pm

      It could be a number of things, including you’re not ovulating regularly, PCOS, hormonal imbalance. I would go to the doctor and get it checked out to see why you aren’t having your periods.

  • sarah July 15, 2014, 8:10 am

    Hi, Im sarah and i am 2weeks delayed from now. I’ve got my period last June 4, 2014. The last time that i had sex was before june 4.. The last month i was 1 week delayed. I usually get my period about 28-30 days cycle. I hope you could help me determine what is the cause of my delayed period. I am freaking out by now. :(

    • DP Nguyen July 17, 2014, 11:17 pm

      It might be stress, or any number of things. But I would take a home pregnancy test just to figure out what is going on.

  • Jamie July 7, 2014, 9:24 am

    Im 30y/o and have not been sexually active going on my 4th year.There is no way I’m pregnant but I have missed my period every other month.Sometimes even two consecutive months.Should I be worried?

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:29 pm

      It might be a hormonal imbalance, or PCOS. The only way to really know whats going on is to go the doctor and get your hormones checked to see what is causing your irregular periods

  • kavya July 6, 2014, 10:59 am

    my name is kavya , am from india
    my age is 27 years. After my first delivery i had harmonal imbalance, so after 5 months from delivery i was getting periods for every 13 days. so i consulted my doctor. After taking medicine for 1 year 3 months i was having regular period. But in the month of june i joined to a teacher job. I missed my periods this month.my last period date is may 26th, so now around 40 days are over. and i have already tested with home pregnancy test it is negetive. plz suggest me wat to do

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:30 pm

      Could it be stress from joining your new job? If you don’t get your period in the next few weeks, take another home pregnancy test or go see your doctor to get tested for pregnancy.

  • Rukiee July 4, 2014, 11:01 pm

    Hi, im 16 years old. I got my period when i was 13. Recently i havent gotten my period for 6 months now!!!! I always get my period every month. Last year i didnt get it for 5 months and then got it. This year its 6 months almost 7 and i didnt get it yet. I do a lot of sports, soccer and baseball. Is tht why? Im not sexually active. So i dont know whats wrong. My doctor said its nothing, but im still worried. Where is my period?

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:32 pm

      Right now, I wouldn’t be too concerned about your periods. If your doctor is not concerned, then I wouldn’t be too worried. It may be because you are so physically active with your sports. That could be the reason you are having periods that are so out of whack.

  • Trying to Chill July 3, 2014, 10:01 am

    I am 35 years old, had protected sex twice in June using a condom (2nd week sometime and on June 23rd), and I still have not had my period. Lately I’ve been having a 35 day cycle, but I have never missed a period. It has come earlier than expected obviously due to pheromones earlier in the year. I I just took a HPT this morning and it’s negative.

    My cycle is as follows
    Nov 15th, December 17th, Jan. 15th, February 20th, March 17th, April 20th, May 24, June nothing. We are now into July. I do have slight cramping and been a little moody -like PMS but that means nothing until I see something.

    Granted I have been stressed, going non stop with work, going to bed late, waking up early, not really eating as right as I should, but I am so confused. I did have a time with indigestion -where gas was not passing either end- for a few days in between the time I had sex, but still. I have never missed my period and from boyfriend to my close girlfriend have told me that it’s stress. Is this normal? Am I stressed because now I am freaking out?

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:41 pm

      Did you ever get your period? It sounds to be that it’s all the stress you’re under that is causing your missed period, especially since you had protected sex with a condom.

  • Kirsty June 30, 2014, 5:32 am

    Hi, I’m 27 years old and I the last time I had a period was in April and it lasted 21 days. I have had a Gastric Bypass in November, but had my periods. I was regular from day 1 of my periods when I turned 13, but when I started having sex (18) my periods became irregular. Anyway, my last period, like I said, April was for 21 days and I have not had one since. My boyfriend doesn’t wear a “C” which good for me because I am allergic to Latex but not good for my body in case I do end up ovulating. I have done a number of HPT (home pregnancy tests) and the doctor even made me give a urine sample and did one himself and all came back negitive. I am starting to worry that there is something wrong with me. I want to be able to have kids, but was told that if you don’t have a period you don’t ovulate…

    I’m scared and would really like some advice on what to do because my doctor is not helpful at all, he just says it will start again soon.

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:43 pm

      Ask your doctor to test your hormone levels to see why you’re not having your periods. If you don’t like the answer that doctor is giving you, get a second opinion and make an appointment with another doctor. Go see a gynecologist, not just a general doctor and they should be able to figure out what is going on with your periods

  • Sonya June 27, 2014, 1:40 pm

    Hey there, when I was 23 to 25 years old I remember my periods being the most consistent and sometimes even 26-27 days after I had lost some weight and had slimmed down. I’m 32 years old now and for the past 3 days, after I lost some weight again I found that my 32-36 day periods came down to 29-32 days. However, sometimes, it does concern me that I am not right at 28 days. Occasionally I am, but for the most part I am 29 to 31 days. Right now, today, it is still 31 days. I guess, according to all of this, this is quite normal and nothing to be alarmed about. One time, this past year, it was 41 days, but the one that followed was 28 days, then 30 days, and now I am back at 31 days and waiting.

  • Jay June 27, 2014, 9:42 am

    I am 20 years old and I am on birth control that I take religiously everyday at the same time. I am almost a week late on my period, I have taken 4 test and all of them are showing negative. I have been under alot of stress the past month, my grandfather passed and not 2 weeks after that my grandma was put in the hospital, on top of that I have a 2 year old who is running me ragged. I was always told that if your on the pill you should never be late no matter what, is this true? I am almost 100% that i am not pregnant, could there be something else wrong?

  • Maria June 17, 2014, 1:37 pm

    Hi, I’m Maria. I’m a student and I’m 18 years old. Lately I’ve went on a break from sex for like 2 months until around the last month of May. I went to go stay with my then bf for a week in the city & we had sex every day except for twice. I spent a total of eight days there. The Tuesday before that Friday I left to go visit him, my period ended. That following week my p tracker told me I was ovulating & we had sex unprotected each day except for the days before & after my calculated ovulation day. It’s irresponsible, I know. When I came back home, we ended up breaking up & a lot of stress just came upon me. Along with my boyfriend breaking up with me, I am now facing a hard time trying to get back into the school I attended Because of financial reasons. The whole month of May my appetite went down but has significantly went down since I came back home from the my boyfriend’s. Also, I am not on birth control. My boyfriend used the “pull out method” & he was pretty efficient by making him self finish outside of me. Now my period is 3 days late & on the first day I was supposed to start, I spotted. Also sometimes, I spot occasionally especially the day of or after I have sex. For some reason, I hardly get much looser no matter how big my partner is. I’ve been checking pregnancy symptoms & the only ones I have are the ones that also pertain to starting my period. I am really worried tho Bc I have a history of anxiety attacks that cause me to overthink until I feel ill. I plan to take a pregnancy test soon to just get it over with but in the mean time could there be another reason. (Extra info: I’ve only used the pullout method before with my previous ex a few times and never conceived & he wasn’t even as quick as my current ex. My last period started the 15th of May , & I think my average cycle is 30-31 days. ) could I be pregnant or is could there possibly other explanations? Thankyou. Sorry if it’s unorganized.

    • NessaZ August 31, 2014, 9:21 pm


  • Alexis June 12, 2014, 5:57 am

    I have not had my period for three months but used a pregnancy test and it came back negative (was not an expired test, and I used it according to the instructions). I have no other signs which would indicate me being pregnant, either. If it helps any, I am also 16 years old and have never had a period which ran like clockwork — a few days off here, a few days off there. I did hit puberty, and thus my period, when I was 6 years old (I don’t know if this information helps at all, but I figured I would include it in-case it does.)
    Why am I having a 3 month stretch without periods? I have had in the past where I would miss one period or so and then get it again the next month.
    Am I just having irregularities? Or what is this?


    • Emily June 21, 2014, 1:44 am

      I am 18 and started my period in junior high but besides that I am having the exact same symptoms! I’m on lo estrogen (birth control) and I always get my period very irregularly. I can get it twice a month or even some months not at all. Right now I’m freaked out though because I haven’t had my period in over 3 months and normally I get it before that. Should I take a pregnancy test? I don’t feel pregnant but then again I feel like because I’m so skinny and muscular I wouldn’t have a baby bump that noticeable. Should I just wait it out?

  • Dawn May 30, 2014, 9:53 am

    I am a 42 yo woman. January 31st, 2014 I was put on life support for ARDS and multi system failure. I spent two months in the hospital over a month of that was on a feeding tube, vent and dialysis not to mention some seriously strong medications including steroids. For 3 months I didn’t have a period which my doctors in the hospital told me could take 6 months or more for me to get back on track with that from the dialysis and such.
    I have since made a full recovery but since my being released, I still have not really had a period, but rather have been what I guess you would call spotting (only there really when I wipe) for 3 weeks now. With the exception that one day I actually thought I started because it was a full heavy flow, but then went right back to the only being there when I wipe.
    Should I be freaking out like I am. I will say that I have been under some serious stress due to the illness and some family issues. And worrying about the hair loss I am suffering as well. Any advise?

    • DP Nguyen June 10, 2014, 12:18 pm

      I wouldn’t worry too much. Serious illness and the experience you’ve been through – I am so sorry about what you’ve gone through with the hospital and multi sysetem failure, it can take a while for your body and hormones to start regulating too. And I think with the health problems you have, your reproductive system may be out of whack. And there is also the possibility that you are perimenopausal too due to your age.

  • Danielle May 27, 2014, 1:17 pm

    Hi im 25 and have always have regular periods, never even been a day late but have now missed 2 months. 5 negative pregnancy tests so im not pregnant but have alot of symptoms. Its very confusing. Any suggestions?? x

    • chloe June 2, 2014, 6:15 pm

      I’m 32 would normally have my period every month but not always on the same date, just like a few months I’m having my period every end of the month until it became every 19th, I wonder why until now I haven’t had my period yet, I’m supposed to have last may 19, upon checking with calendar calculation if 45days cycle I should have my period by this time I’ve been worrying about this for a week now and as the day goes by I basically becomes paranoid. Had an intercourse but we use a “C”. Need your opinion.

      • DP Nguyen June 10, 2014, 12:15 pm

        You need to take a home pregnancy test. or get a blood test at your doctor’s office.

    • Lashawna June 10, 2014, 1:28 pm

      Danielle have you found anything out on your situation yet? If so can you please share? I’m 24 and the exact same thing is going on with me. Thank you.

  • jane May 22, 2014, 3:17 am

    hello my name is Jane, Im 21. my period is almost 4 months late!! its always been irregular, when I started to et my period at 15 it was between 3-6 months late I went to a doctor about it and was told it was because of my age an it would start to become regular as I get older.. but it didn’t so I went back when i was about 17 an they said it was cysts on my ovaries, they didn’t do any test they felt my lower stomach where my ovaries are but thats it. I wasn’t eating healthy food at the time, they told me I need to eat healthier an it would go back to normal, so I did an eventually it did 2 years later. it was regular for a few periods an fell pregnant with my son at 20, since having my son who is now 1 and a half I’ve had 2 periods. I breast fed until he was 6 months, got my first period since having him at 9 months, three months later had another an haven’t had one since then its almost been 4 months. I went to see a doctor an he took a pregnancy test it came up negative(a pee one not a blood test one) I also took about 6 home pregnancy test also coming up negative. there could have been a very slight chance that I was pregnant again but didn’t have any symptoms like nausea or tiredness. ive had bits of pains every few days, kind of feels like period pains. lots of bloating, the doctor told me to wait a month an if I don’t get my period to come back an he’ll do tests. I noticed little lumps today around my cervices an when I goggled it said about cervical cysts. I don’t know what to do, Im going crazy. I feel like there’s something wrong with my body if it is just cysts on my ovaries an I keep getting them is it going to affect me having more children

  • Dawn May 19, 2014, 12:55 pm

    hello :) I am a 32 year old mother of two. Had a tubal 2 weeks after my youngest (7 years ago) and generally have a normal period. I am now 4 weeks late, took a PT 7 days late and it came back negative. I do have Uterine Prolapse and am wondering if thay may be a cause for the latency- but also feeling some funny symptoms (bloated-emotional-lathargic). Had dentures put in 6 weeks ago and the meds I was on left me extremely constipated, could this all be in relation to my body just being in shock?Wondering if I should wait out the recommended 3 months of being late before goin to the doctor? Thanks for any suggestions!

  • marya May 18, 2014, 1:31 pm

    Hi, I’m 22. My period is late for 20 days. I am not sexually active. I dont know what is the reason;however, I think i ovulated because i can feel my body when i ovulate. also i’ve been seeing mucus since i ovulated. I know this is normal during ovulation, but i’ve been having continuous secretion of mucus for more than 2 weeks ! what could it be ?

    Im 21 and I haven’t had my period in THREE months, since my birthday in the middle of February..what’s going on?..I am more than 100% positive that I am NOOTT! Pregnant!
    Usually I have a little irregular periods where I get it every month and a half to almost 2 months, which I always thought was weird(maybe cuz of my medicine, lamictal)..but never up to THREE months. And the problem is, is I NEVER know when im going to start so its hard to be prepared, which ALWAYS bothers me.
    I have changed my diet, practically almost to vegetarian, but havent lost weight.. but the only thing I can think that might have changed is now that i have a car, I dont walk or ride my bike as much which was considered my only exercise. I always thought I might have always had irregular periods cuz of my medicine, but ive never been sure.

  • n201 May 11, 2014, 5:23 am

    It’s almost been 2 months since I’ve had my period, I’m 18 but started getting my period sort of late, when I was 16 and my period has been punctual for months until now. I have been feeling a little more bloated than usual, especially evident after I’ve had a meal and I’m getting worried. I have had no sexual contact whatsover (ever) and the only bizarre reason I can think of is my landlord’s son using my towel without me knowing. I don’t really wipe my junk with my towel often (that I’m aware of) but am I going insane? Is any of that really possible? Please give me all the answers you can give without mocking me.

    • DP Nguyen May 11, 2014, 10:39 pm

      I am not sure why you stopped having your period. You might have something else going on. Maybe a cyst or fibroid… It could be any number of thing. I don’t think the landlord son using your towel would cause you to get pregnant. Plus, sperm dies within minutes of contact to air anyway. So it is probably a health reason that is causing you to miss your period. Perhaps stress? Anyway, I would go get it checked out by a gynecologist to figure out why you are missing your period. Good luck

      • Pat December 2, 2014, 5:48 am

        Your comment that “sperm dies within minutes of contact to air” is not factually correct. Sperm can live 3-5 days and air does not negatively impact the sperm life cycle.

  • angela April 25, 2014, 4:44 am

    Hi I have not had my period for 4 months now and I have tried acupunture but it did not work… I am a virgin and 16. I have had my period since 12. What should I do? Some tell me to take the pill…

    • angela April 25, 2014, 4:47 am

      I forgot… Fast reply if possible?

      • Anon April 29, 2014, 6:32 am

        It’s very common to be put on the pill to regulate your period.

        I wouldn’t stress- go see your GP and see what they have to say.

    • DP Nguyen April 29, 2014, 9:12 pm

      You should go see a doctor to make sure that you don’t have a hormonal issue or other health problem that is causing you to have such irregular periods.

  • Erika Gonzalez April 16, 2014, 5:45 am

    I’m two weeks late on my period. The last two monthmonths I got them on the 3rd but this month its about 2 weeks late already and I already taken 2 pregnancy tests and both came out negative. I read the above article and I might have been stressed during that time but I’m not now. Any idea what could it be? I don’t remember a month where I’ve missed my period. Also, for the last couple of months I started using an application on my phone to track my periods but I missed it too according to them as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advanced.

    • arah April 17, 2014, 11:41 am

      19 im one week late on my period. my last period was last march 12 and i took two pregnancy test early this morning and it is positive. i dont know what to do, they say im pregnant but i dont feel i am. and i also have discharged of white mens. i dont have spotting i dont have symptoms of being pregnant. but im getting worried because im 1 week late and because of the positive pregnancy test i took this morning im getting paranoid. help me please.

      • DP Nguyen April 22, 2014, 9:18 pm

        If you got a positive pregnancy test, then you are pregnant! Not all women have pregnancy symptoms, and some are lucky and get off without having any bad symptoms. Go to your doctor and get confirmation of your period. Good luck!

    • DP Nguyen April 22, 2014, 9:20 pm

      It might be stress, it might be any number of things. If you still haven’t gotten your period, go to the doctor and get a blood pregnancy test. Good luck!

  • John April 14, 2014, 8:17 am

    I’m a guy, hope it’s ok to leave a post here. My girlfriend is almost 2 weeks late. Her last period started on March 2, and ended on March 7. We also had physical contact on the night of March 7. She’s somewhat a regular, averaging 28 to 30 days. Prior to her March 2 period, the previous ones started at Jan 4, and Feb 2. We also had physical contact on Feb 15 (which is within the most fertile period). I thought her March 2 period was what you call an implantation bleeding, but according to her, it was the normal, heavy period.

    I’m still wondering why she’s delayed. I have used contraceptives on the the two times we had physical contact (Feb 15, and March 7).

    Her weight is a bit more than the average female of her age, but she isn’t obese. I read in your post that being a little overweight can cause delayed periods.

    • John April 14, 2014, 8:22 am

      I forgot to include in my previous post that she took 3 home pregnancy tests already. The first one was on April 3rd, the second was on April 7th, and the third and most recent one was on April 11th. All came out negative.

      • DP Nguyen April 15, 2014, 10:38 am

        Many things can cause late periods – stress, being a little overweight, hormones being out of whack. Her period might be out of whack, however I would have her get take a blood pregnancy test if you are worried and her period doesn’t come.

  • Shannon March 27, 2014, 5:19 pm


    I’m 21 and I have pretty much always had an irregular cycle and have skipped periods before, but my last period ended on Jan. 28 2014 and I have yet to get another period. This is starting to worry me since normally when I skip a period it would only be for 1 month and then I would start back up again. I took a pregnancy test last week which came out negative, so now I have made an appointment with a doctor to find out more. What I’m most concerned about is how irregular my periods can be. Is it normal, or should I worry? Thanks in advance.

    • DP Nguyen March 28, 2014, 12:05 pm

      It might be a hormonal issue, or an ovulation issue, but most likely, it’s not serious. There are plenty of healthy women who just happen to have irregular periods. It won’t affect your ability to get pregnant later, however, it may just be harder to get pregnant if you aren’t ovulating regularly. But try not to worry. Your doctor will help reassure you and explain what is going on. Good luck

    • Jenna March 31, 2014, 2:08 pm

      I am in the SAME situation you are in. I am 21, and my last period ended around January 29th. I still don’t have it. When I got it last, I was a few weeks late. I keep getting cramps and thinking it is going to start up, and then it never does. I’ve had my skin break out that comes with my period as well. I took a test last week and it was negative. My husband and I are starting to get really concerned. I’m going to take a couple more tests, then call the doctor. I found out last summer that I have ovarian cysts, so I wonder if that has something to do with this. Let me know what your doctor says!

    • DP Nguyen April 7, 2014, 9:52 am

      Your doctor should be able to help you figure out what is causing your missed periods, but usually irregular periods might be because you’re not ovulating regularly, or your hormonal levels are off, or you could have fibroid or ovarian cysts growing. But your doctor can run some tests and help!

  • Hannah March 26, 2014, 11:13 pm

    So I’m 17 and haven’t had my peroid in 3 months.. I’ve never had sex so I’m not pregnant. Sometimes I’ll gets pain and think I’m going to start, but it’s only pain/cramps. I’m not overly stressed, no unusual body weight changes, and never this irregular.

    • DP Nguyen March 28, 2014, 12:07 pm

      You might have an ovulation or hormonal problem causing your missed period. IF you are really worried, call your doctor and schedule an appointment to figure out what is going on.

    • DP Nguyen April 7, 2014, 9:52 am

      If you’re worried, I would go get it checked out with your doctor!

  • Gabrielle March 23, 2014, 11:07 pm

    Hi I’m 18 and my last period was in December. I was taking birth control the month of January and stopped taking it once i reached the sugar pills which could have caused the missed period in January however, it is now March and I have not gotten my period since, I since have taken over five pregnancy tests all of which have come out negative, and I just took the last one today and it came out negative. I do not understand why this is happened and was wondering if you could give me some advice for a next step?

    • DP Nguyen March 25, 2014, 9:57 pm

      If you haven’t had unprotected sex that could be causing pregnancy, it is possible that your body is getting readjusted to life without the hormones in the birth control. But if you’re still sexually active, I would go see a doctor to get a blood pregnancy test and to address your questions. Good luck

  • Yanairis March 22, 2014, 1:16 pm

    I always have a period ig always comes on time last month my period came four days late and know my period has not come yet i been having pain in my overis i when to the hospital and they did blood work it came back negative to pregnancy what else could it be

    • DP Nguyen March 22, 2014, 3:37 pm

      I am not sure. If your blood test was negative for pregnancy, then something else is the cause. I would go see your gynecologist and get it checked out. Good luck.

  • Hannah March 18, 2014, 5:48 pm

    I’m Fourteen and I’ve had my period for nearly a year and a half and I use an app that I track it with. that app said that my estimated starting date was March 13 and ending date was March 18 (my periods are normally that long) but today’s the 18th and I haven’t started yet. I’m worried because I’ve never missed a period before. I read through the possibilities for a fourteen year old like me and i’m almost sure its the stress one if anything. I’ve been having a horrid time as a middle schooler lately. I go on vacation to a water park next week with a friend’s family and if I don’t have my period by then, I’m worried that it may start while there (even worse, in the water park). If I start before the trip i’d make sure to bring tampons but if I don’t, how do I play it safe and make sure I don’t start while swimming? This wouldn’t have been a problem in the first place if my period had already started,.. Just needed some advice.

    • DP Nguyen March 19, 2014, 1:12 pm

      Hi Hannah,

      At your age, it’s normal for your periods to fluctuate a little or be a little bit late. Once, I had a period that didn’t start for 43 days from one cycle to to the hext. I would not be too worried. Stress is a common cause of late periods. So try not to worry too much. Your period will start soon. Doctors are only really worried if you do not have your period for two or three months in a row. Hope that eases your mind!

  • Shannon March 11, 2014, 4:25 pm

    I am 28 years old, married, and have 2 kids. I have always had pretty regular periods. They have only been late or missed when i was actually indeed pregnant. I have always also had no problem with having negative test when actually pregnant. In fact with my first daughter I think I took a test the day after I got pregnant and it came back positive. Or so it seemed! lol. Now I am over 2 months late. The first day of my last period was Dec 28th 2013. I am not under any amount of stress, no new meds, no extreme weight loss or gain, nothing out of the norm. So I am not sure why I am over 2 months late and I am still getting negative tests. I was on BC but got off of it over 6 months ago. Had a period after I got off it fine up until Dec. I have an apt made for next Monday, but I am trying to see if you could give me any insight as to what could be going on? If I should mention anything special when I go to the dr, or anything like that. Please let me know, I am feeling a bit confused.


    • DP Nguyen March 12, 2014, 11:45 pm

      It might be a hormonal imbalance after getting off the birth control. However, your doctor will be able to tell you more. Just give the doctor the date of your last periods (in the last couple of months would be good too…), mention if you’ve had any spotting or any other symptoms you’re worried about. Good luck!

  • nency dave February 27, 2014, 8:37 am

    I am 20 years old. my periods is 10 days late.I am really worrying my boyfriend says that I m not pregnant because sperm flow was not there when we did sex and actually his penis was not fully in my pussy. but still I m worrying because periods has not come yet.and beside this I have done 4 times pregnancy test at home by home test kit but still I am worrying. what to do. any suggestion. any reasons for late periods in my case.

    • DP Nguyen March 3, 2014, 1:43 pm

      It could be stress… Any number of things… But if you are still worried, you need to go get a blood pregnancy test at your doctor’ office. Pre-cum also has sperm and even if his penis was not fully in your vagina, you could have still gotten pregnant. Go see a doctor. Good luck!

  • Ang February 23, 2014, 10:48 am

    Hi, I’m 15 and have had my period since I was 13 3/4. I normally have a quite normal period and sometimes it misses a month or two (the doctor said that’s natural in the beginning), but I haven’t had it since October. I started drinking green tea (3-7cups a day) (and I started excercising more and eating healthlier) in November, could it be that this has something to do with my period? No one else seems to have had the same experience before. Is it unhealthy to not have a period? Could the green tea be the cause? Thanks for any help x

    • Sarah April 29, 2014, 6:43 pm

      I am 15 as well and started my period at 14. The last time I had my period was at the end of January. I run regularly but i’m not very good about eating healthily (ironically). I absolutely drink WAY too much green tea 😉 It is kind of concerning me because I have quite a few health issues already, and I don’t know if this is another one.

      So Ang, you’re not the only one with this issue.

      DP Nguyen, PLEASE ADVISE SOON!! I need to know if I should be telling someone about this…

      • DP Nguyen April 29, 2014, 9:07 pm

        You should start eating more healthy! Your periods are regulated by your hormones, which are affected by many factors, including lifestyle factors, such as your diet, your exercise level, etc. Drinking green tea is great, but not if you are ignoring the others! Also if you are having other health problems, that can also cause your periods to be irregular too. Illness can also cause missed periods too. Good luck!

  • Christie February 20, 2014, 6:13 am

    Hi there,

    I’m 22 years old. I have missed my period for January and February. My last period was on 15th Dec 13 and haven’t got it yet until now.
    I have experienced this irregular cycle recently. In June I got my period but then Missed my period for July and got it In August. Then missed the September then got again in October. After that I had my normal period again for Nov and Dec. and now it happened again and I am worried.
    When I had sex last month, there was some blood not too much thou. I took a pregnancy test last month but came out negative.
    I have gained weight recently and just moved to new Country with different weather condition. Could it affects my cycle? Or do I have some sickness or something (like ovaries cysts) that I should worry about? Thank you in advance.

  • Jay February 12, 2014, 8:24 am

    I am 39 years old with 3 children (11,10,6). I was unable to get pregnant on my own the first time around as I was not ovulating and was killing my husbands sperm. My next two were not planned, but very blessed to have them in my life. After my youngest, my periods were very irregular as I did not go back on any birth control. I have been keeping track now for the last 2 years and they are now on a more regular cycle, averaging 34 days between (give or take a day or two, or three). My longest gap was 44 days but that was almost a year ago (April 2013) However, I have not had a period since December 20th . I am not pregnant as I took a test out of curiosity . Somedays my body feels off, but that could just be my mind playing tricks on me. I am use to my cycle being off, but not this long. Any ideas?? Thanks,

    • DP Nguyen March 3, 2014, 1:47 pm

      You might be starting perimenopause… Early menopause.

  • Brittany February 4, 2014, 7:31 pm

    Hi! I am 19 years and a college student. I have been sexually active since I was 18 and before I was, I started on birth control. Over thanksgiving 2013, my birth control was all out of whack because I went home and could not be supplied with the pill. I had one period and then 15 days later I had another. The last period I had was around December 3rd. I have been off of the pill since Thanksgiving and have not had a period since Dec 3rd. I have been sexually active but I took a pregnancy test about a month ago and it was negative. Now I’m entering my second month of no period and I don’t know what to do. I get moody, indigestion, and I feel sick sometimes like when I ride the bus but no morning sickness or anything else. Please let me know what you think!

    Thank you!

  • Emmanuella February 3, 2014, 6:32 pm

    Hi I’m 47, and used the Mirena for the last 3.5 years. I had it removed in July 2013, and had light bleeding, then nothing until October when I had a normal period. Since then I have had nothing. I’m definitely not pregnant..should I wait longer, or should I see a doctor?

  • Lara January 30, 2014, 9:10 pm

    Hi, I’m 19 and I always get irregular periods. But this time its different because it has been 4 months and I havent gotten my period yet. I already used a PT and it was negative ; i also went to the doctor and had some test done, he said im fine and not pregnant. However, im really worried. What do u think is the cause of me not having my period in 4 months?

    • Madison February 2, 2014, 2:20 pm

      This is exactly the same thing that is happening to me now. I’m 19, it has been 4 months and I have taken many PT. Let me know if you find out anything and I will do the same!

    this month i was bit stressed.

    what could be the reason for delay in periods?

    Pls let me know.

    Hey, im currently an exchange student, it has been a really hard experience, I feel a lot of anxiety and preassure, I miss my family, friends and country and dont have friends here yet but have a good relation with my host family, I’ve gain 8kl in 3 months, and my period hasnt come in 4 months, there is no way i could be pregnant, I also lost a lot of hair and am having a lot of mood swings and sometimes i feel like im dreaming and have cramps Im sorry I cant explain it properly. I made hormones exams and went to the doctor and they were ok. If you have any advice of had been in a similar situation let me know. Thank you and sorry for my crappy english.

  • Marissa January 18, 2014, 8:01 pm

    Hey im 16 years old and I usually have my period ever month if its not a couple days late but my last period was on November 5th. I’m so scared because there is no possible way that I can be pregnant so that must mean there is something bad that’s wrong with me. What do you think it is?

    • Chelsey January 20, 2014, 2:50 am

      Don’t worry about it. When I was 16-17 a couple times I didn’t have a period for 2 months in a row. My doctor says that being active or being stressed (or both) can cause that. As along as it doesn’t exceed 3 months then you shouldn’t be concerned. If you are really worried you can always go to the doctor.

  • KM January 15, 2014, 9:20 pm

    I stopped taking birth control last March to relieve my body of the extra hormones in order to start having children. Before that I’d been taking BC for about 16 years due to an irregular cycle. I haven’t had a period since Nov. 4, and took 2 HPTs (both negative) and went to the doctor to get a blood test (also negative). They also did some blood work to test my T4 and TSH levels which were both normal… Any ideas on this scenario? I’ve yet to have a period as of today.

    Thanks in advance,


  • sarah January 14, 2014, 4:15 pm

    i miss my period for 2months and it had it last week.i have done several HPT BUT ALL ARE NEGATIVE,I FEEL PAINS IN MY BREAST,PAINS AT MY BACK.AM I PREGNANT

  • Chasity January 13, 2014, 1:30 am

    Hello, I’m a 39 year old who hasn’t had her period for two cycles. I’m less than a week away from when I should begin to cycle again. So far as I can tell, I’m not feeling bad or anything that would indicate illness. I’ve simply missed the cycles. My tubes were tied shortly after my son’s birth, and he’ll be 15 this year. I’m usually fairly regular, and I bleed for 5 days fairly heavy on the first 3. I’ve only missed a period or been late a couple other times, and it was no more than one cycle. I plan to see a physician if I don’t bleed this month. But the causes do not seem to be stress related, so far as I can tell. Maybe weight, but I’ve always been fairly overweight, and I’ve not gained or lost significantly, or traveled recently or any other of the more common causes. Please give your best advice, as the options remaining seem to me to be peri-menopause, hormonal imbalance or other ugly options.

    • DP Nguyen January 14, 2014, 10:44 am

      It may be perimenopause, early menopause or something similiar. I would go see your doctor if your period doesn’t start. Good luck!

  • Izzy January 8, 2014, 1:12 am

    I haven’t had my period in the last four months, prior to this I was on the depo injections but would still have a lighter but regular period while receiving the injections, prior to being put on the depo injections my periods were always extremely heavy and painful. Presently I get a fair amount of abdominal pain on an almost daily basis but no period. Not sure what’ s happened here?

    • DP Nguyen January 8, 2014, 10:10 am

      After depo injections, it can take awhile for your period to regulate itself again. In some women, it can take up to one year before their periods return to normal. It’s quite common side-effect with these birth control injections. They really can affect your hormonal levels.

      As for your abdominal pain on a daily basis, I would really go see a doctor to figure out what is causing those. It might be a gynecological problem but it could also be something else. Go get it checked out! Good luck!

  • Erica January 6, 2014, 7:29 pm

    Hi there. I’m 22 years old. I was on high estrogen birth control for a few years but went off them in April. I started getting regular periods again in June, after my hormones balanced out I believe. I’m not sexually active and I missed my period in November and December. Should I go see my doctor or wait to see what happens in January? I’m just not sure if I should be worried or not. Thank you in advance for any advice you could give me.

    • DP Nguyen January 6, 2014, 8:10 pm

      I would go see your doctor if you don’t have your period in January. It might be a hormonal thing but I would go and get your hormone levels checked out. Good luck!

  • marie January 5, 2014, 10:51 pm

    Hi! I had sex last Oct. 11, 2013. We used withdrawal method. I was sick that time. I took paracetamol and antibiotics for a week due to my sickness. After 2 weeks, I was stressed because I transferred to a new apartment. My period was due Oct. 27, 2013 but it didn’t come. I am regular and my period was never late for a week. I had spotting on Nov. 19,2013 after having sex (I usually had few bloods after having sex). I had hyperacidity since November. No other sign of pregnancy. I can’t take pregnancy test because I read in an article that dermoid cyst can cause failed positive result. I undergone laparoscopy last 2011 because I had dermoid cyst. It came back a year later. Now I confused if I am pregnant or not.

    • DP Nguyen January 5, 2014, 11:12 pm

      I would go see a doctor for a blood pregnancy test. He/she would be more familiar with your medical history and give you a more accurate diagnosis. With the withdrawal method, there is always a chance that you could have gotten pregnant.

  • jho January 2, 2014, 12:59 am

    Hi. i’m 25y/o, i always have a regular mens cycle since 12…but now, im sexually active and im expecting my mens last Dec20 since my last months men was Nov 23..but till now i haven’t had my monthly period…no mens for the 1 month (Dec), i’ve had myself checked using PT test last dec 27, but the result was negative …is there any chance of me getting pregnant?

    I sometimes feel as if im having my period but the next morning i wake up, im not.

    • DP Nguyen January 5, 2014, 11:15 pm

      Your period might just be late this month. Keep taking a home pregnancy test and good luck. If your period still hasn’t come in a week or two, go schedule an appointment with a doctor and get a blood test.

  • Jay January 1, 2014, 8:39 am

    Hi I’m 16 and I never really missed my period for this long it have been a month and I don’t thing that I’m pregnant because I took the take home test but I still haven’t got it yet and I’m really stress out because of that…. could that be why I didn’t get it yet?

    • DP Nguyen January 5, 2014, 11:17 pm

      If you had sex, there is always a chance that you could have gotten pregnant. I would wait a few more weeks, take another test. If your period still doesn’t come, go see a doctor for a blood pregnancy test.

  • Juliette December 17, 2013, 8:01 am

    My period started in the summer, and is usable 23-27 days apart. I started my vacation a week and a half ago (7th) and have been swimming for over 2 hours a day. My period was supposed to come 3 days ago on the 24 day but it hasn’t come yet. It’s now the 17th. I am 13 so obviously I wouldn’t have sex, so is it possible the delay would just be because of how often I am swimming?

    • DP Nguyen January 5, 2014, 11:20 pm

      It might just be a hormonal fluctuation, the fact that you have started to exercise 2 hours a day can definitely play a role in the delay in your period. I would not worry about it too much at your age.

  • Camila Sanchez December 6, 2013, 10:10 pm

    Hi! This might sound weird but I haven’t gotten my period in 5 years…I’m not lying. Last time I had my period that I can remember was in 6th grade when I had a REALLY heavy flow,I’m in 11th grade now. I recently told my family and they don’t understand it either. I’m really scared. I don’t know why I didn’t tell anyone. I haven’t gone to the doctors I just wanted to get information about what might be going on before I go to the doctors. If you could give me some answers,I’d really appreciate it(:

    • DP Nguyen January 5, 2014, 11:24 pm

      If you haven’t had a period in five years, you need to go see a doctor!

    Hi Im 30 a mom of 2…I was last active on 09-23-13 I had my cycle on 10-11-13 it only lasted 3 days. My cycle was due to arrive on or around 11-11-13 it still hasnt arrived.

    im 18 years old and I’ve had my period since i was 12 but not once have i had my period a month after another . i usually get between 3 to 6 months and i get really bad cramps. anyone know what it can be

  • Bibi November 12, 2013, 6:20 pm

    Hi. I’m 18, and I have never been irregular since i got my period, nothing out of the ordinary, however, since July I have had menstrual cycles that have lasted only a day or two, or much less than that, mostly brown discharge and some blood, very slow discharge.
    Since last month (October) I haven’t been getting them at all, and I’m freaking out, the thought of being infertile or having some kind of sickness is just making me go crazy.
    Please help :/
    PS: I’ve moved to a new country since September..

  • ACw November 8, 2013, 2:35 am


    My time in between periods over the last five months has ranged from 26 – 29 days with my last period being 26 days (October 6, 2013)

    I travelled on I have been on vacation during the period October 12 – 23.

    During my vacation I had unprotected sex on the 20th , but we stopped well before he climaxed . Since then we had sex again on October 23, 2013. We have used the “withdrawal” form of birth control for over 6 years now and thus far it has worked.

    After returning from holiday we had sex again on October 29, 2013 but this time since I believed my periods were due with 4-5 days (November 3, 2013) we didn’t fully practice the withdrawal method.

    I am currently 5 days late. I am experiencing on and off PMS systems which I have been accustomed to for years but no period.

    I also need to to add that before and after my holiday. I have been under alot of stress at work.

    Based on the above information do you think I could be pregnant?

    • DP Nguyen November 9, 2013, 5:46 pm

      I mean, there is always a chance you could be pregnant… But it’s also very possible that your vacation and the stress delayed your period, so it could just be late. Vacations/Holidays can screw up your period sometimes. I would take a home pregnancy test if you don’t have your period in a few days. Good luck!

  • Christiana November 6, 2013, 10:41 pm

    Sorry, that’s two months, not two weeks. Whoops. And I’ve taken 3 pregnancy tests, all negative.

  • Christiana November 6, 2013, 10:40 pm

    I’ve suspected that I’ve had a hormone imbalance for the past year and I was supposed to get a blood test as ordered by my GP to test my levels of estrogen, progesterone, FSH, and leutinizing hormone. She told me to go in 2 weeks after the start of my cycle to get the test done but my period has been absent for 2 weeks. I wonder if I can still get the test done?

  • Natasha November 5, 2013, 10:18 pm

    Hello, I am now week late, last time i had my period was 1st October. last time i had sexual intercourse with my boyfriend was on 13-14th October. My breasts are swollen for a week now and don’t hurt. Other than that nothing else, no other symptoms. I think my ovulation started later, about 2 weeks ago, as for couple of days i had strong mucus. Do you think I’m late because of late ovulation? or there is a chance of pregnancy? I always used protection, so there were no leaks. Also, for the past 4-5 months my periods changed cycles. in June I had my period on 2nd and 30th, nothing in July, August 2nd and 29th, nothing in September and then on the 1st October. I assumed maybe my cycle is shifting that is why i am delayed. Please advice, thank you

    • DP Nguyen November 9, 2013, 5:58 pm

      If you have always used protection with no leaks, then you are probably not pregnant. Late ovulation can make your period late, yes. So that might be the cause. But you can always take a home pregnancy test if you are worried.

  • gabby November 2, 2013, 2:10 pm

    hi I’m 21 years old I have irregular periods but for the past year I have been getting my period every month one month be blood another month brown discharge which still indicates my period I am sexually active I had my last period sept 27 I’m a week late I’ve been having cramps lately but no period I took 3 preg tests all neg I can’t go to the doc bc I do not have any insurance .. idk if I am preg or just irregular?

    • gabby November 2, 2013, 2:16 pm

      also my boobs have been hurting

      • DP Nguyen November 9, 2013, 6:21 pm

        You sounds like you are just irregular… Just wait another week or two, and if your period doesn’t come, take another home pregnancy test. Good luck!

  • Lily October 30, 2013, 3:59 pm

    Hi I’m 16 years old, and have had a regular period since I was 12. I get it every month, and usually mine is pretty normal, normal to light actually. Last time I got my period was in August, and now that’s it’s October, I’ve been really nervous. I’m still a virgin, so there’s no possible way I’m pregnant. However, I’ve been doing cardiovascular activity every day since the beginning of September. It caused a lot of stress and anxiety problems. So do you think that’s the problem? I don’t want to go to my doctor… but I think I should. Help!

    • DP Nguyen November 9, 2013, 8:23 pm

      You’re not pregnant, but your missed period might be a hormonal imbalance. Or possibly because of all the exercising, stress and anxiety, it’s thrown your hormones out of whack. Once your stress levels decrease, I bet your periods will return. If they do not, you should go see a doctor.

  • Marilyn October 27, 2013, 9:25 pm

    Hi ok im 16 and never had a normal cycle. i got my period when i was 12. but recently i have been getting my period every 6 weeks, but i havent gotten my period since August 30 and it is now October 27. i am really nervous. i know i am not pregnant because i am a virgin. i never had a normal cycle, does that mean there is Gd Forbid something wrong with my ovaries, eggs, or fertiltiy? please help. thank you

  • Mai October 20, 2013, 3:45 pm

    I really need your help! My bf and I last contact was Sept 13. We always have unprotected sex. I had my period Sept 16 to 18, and it is very light, only the first day was heavy (not sure if it was my period). It was too early for my cycle, I always have a regular 28-30 days cycle. On October 1st, i had spotting which is dark brown in color, it only appears red when I whipped. So, assuming that my last period was Sept 18th, I am now delayed for 5 days. I had my PT last Oct 17 and it was negative. I don’t really have a normal working hours, I changed Afternoon shift to graveyard shift every 2 weeks and was stress for the past one week because my bf broke up with me. Also I took the test in the afternoon, since I came from a graveyard shift I sleep all day. Now, I’m having the PMS syndrome and very gassy. Can you please help me, I always wanted to be pregnant. But I don’t want to put my hopes up since it will be very heartbreaking. Thank you in advance!

  • Lesh October 13, 2013, 3:56 pm

    Hi, the last time I had my period it went for 2 weeks and that was in July, it has now been 3 months going on 4 months and the end of this month since I have had it, I have taken so many pregnancy tests to see if I was pregnant but they have all come back negative. Could you please give me some advice as to what to do or whats wrong please??

  • Amanda October 9, 2013, 2:13 am

    I have 2 kids. My youngest about to turn 2. After my oldest I went to the nuvaring as my bc. With no problems I stopped using it early 2011 and it seems almost instantly became pregnant with my youngest. After he was born I went back to using the same method once again. My worry now is this…… I took my ring out mid August like scheduled. I had my regular cycle as usual. September came n I had a single day of extremely light show and that is it. I have taken over a dozen home test and all have came up negative. I haven’t had any major symptoms that stand out to me like my past pregnancies. I didn’t have a single complication on distinguishing my past pregnancies and my cycle has been regular since I was 14 years old. (Currently 26). I have scheduled a doctors appointment but it’s at the end of this month n I’m kinda getting worried. I don’t know what to think. Could all the home tests be wrong with me missing 2months? What might your opinion be? Please help.

  • Davi October 8, 2013, 6:39 pm

    I have always gotten my period on time but this past month I was sick when I had my period but I was also taking headache medication an nasia medication at the time I’ve been late for 2 days is this considered normal

    • DP Nguyen October 8, 2013, 10:24 pm

      Yeah, sickness can throw off your menstrual cycles.

      • Davi October 8, 2013, 11:42 pm

        Do you think it can start soon? Or will it just skip my monthly

  • Michael October 5, 2013, 11:02 pm

    Hi.. Am Michale

    My periods got delayed 11 months and i gain weight and started periods again. Does this impact anything in future with kids? Is this causes any issues with by giving birth to kids? I am 25 years old and getting married now. What is the reason for 11 months delayed for my periods? Please suggest me ..

    • DP Nguyen October 8, 2013, 10:20 pm

      I don’t think that it will cause any issues with pregnancy or giving birth. Lots of women have irregular periods and they end up getting pregnant and having normal babies. You may have been underweight, not enough fat cells for a health reproductive system, and gaining weight just gave your body that extra boost it needed. As long as you are having normal periods every month, you should be fine. But if you are worried, contact a gynecologist and get their medical opinion on your individual health history. Good luck.

  • Kamna October 2, 2013, 2:11 pm

    Hi I was diagnosed with under active thyroid in June 2013. Started on 25mg then next month 50mg then aug 75mg. I have had periods every month at the beginning they were a bit closer probably 24 days then 26 days then august it was 34 days. I had my last period on the 24th of august. & up until now no period I have never missed a period. I did have unprotected sex from the 7th to. The 10th of sept which according to online ovulation calanders it was my ovulation time. I have done 3 pregnancy tests but all negative. I’m really worried that my period won’t come as we wanted to start trying for a baby & if I was pregnant we would be delighted. Do you think my periods could be going because of my thyroid?

    • DP Nguyen October 3, 2013, 8:37 pm

      If you’ve had unprotected sex, and it was really close to your ovulation time, so there is a chance you could be pregnant. Go see your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test and ultrasound done to make sure that you are not pregnant. But I think you might be.

  • Melissa October 2, 2013, 1:41 pm

    hi i’m melissa 😀 i’m 29 and i have a 2 yr old and almost 5 yr old, all my periods up until august have been normal but then in august i was a few days late i was supposed to get it in the early 20s of the month i got it the 27th now it’s October 2nd and nothing no period since august, i took an ept test in the afternoon a few days ago it said negative i had unprotected sex with my husband twice this month once in the beginning of the month and once around a week ago does this sound like a pregnancy to you? The reason i question it is well when i had sex it was a few days after my period stopped, then the second time was when i should have had my period and also because i knew with my son and daughter, just wondering what you think, a baby is not a negative to me if i’m pregnant then that’s great and that’s apparently how it’s supposed to be but how is that possible timing wise?

    • DP Nguyen October 3, 2013, 8:49 pm

      Well, if you have sex right after your period, it’s unlikely you could have conceived UNLESS you ovulated early that month… And that does happen sometimes. You should really go get a blood pregnancy test and let your doctor know that you haven’t had a period since August.

  • Karen September 28, 2013, 10:08 pm

    • DP Nguyen October 2, 2013, 12:25 am

      It is probably jus your stress that is delaying your period.

  • iRina September 26, 2013, 1:24 pm

      • DP Nguyen October 2, 2013, 12:27 am

        I would ask your OB/GYN since she is more knowledgable about your health history.

    please i need your advice

    • DP Nguyen September 17, 2013, 12:51 am

      You should take a home pregnancy test. Even if it’s pregnant, you need to contact your doctor to figure out why you are missing your period. Perhaps it’s a hormonal imbalance or the high level of stress at your work. Good luck!

  • Rosa September 16, 2013, 9:57 pm


    I’m 25 yrs old, never missed a period before, and this month my period hasn’t come… I normally go at 28 days, right now I’m at 34 days… I have NOT been sexually active since January. I have migranes, and mild cramping, pain in my lower ribs as well. And I find there is a lot of clear discharge… but no bleeding. I am exhausted. have been stressed a lot due to a new program at school… I dont like being late. And I don’t need extra stress weighing me down. I did lose 7 lbs in a span of 5 days though… could that be it?

    • DP Nguyen September 17, 2013, 12:52 am

      It is probably the stress level with your school, and your weight loss that has delayed your period. The clear discharge sounds like cervical mucus that comes around the time of ovulation. So I am guessing that you are ovulating later this month than usual, and so your period is going to be late. If you haven’t been sexually active since January, then you aren’t pregnant, but you probably just have delayed ovulation and will have a delayed/later than normal period. Good luck!

  • Latoya September 15, 2013, 6:15 pm

    I am 39 years old. I have had my tubes tied and an ablation done. Tubes tied almost 15 years ago and ablation 3-4 years ago. My period is like clockwork and comes every month. Before I had the ablation done I was on a 21 day cycle. Since then I have been on a 17 day cycle with my period lasting 7-8 days. But it was light so that didn’t mother me too much. It used to be heavy with clotting before the ablation. I had my period in August and it only lasted about 5 days and was extremely light then. I am now 11 days late and I am not understanding why. I did not have sex the whole month of August but I still took a pregnancy test when I was about 3 days late and it was negative. If my period has always come without fail, what is going on now? I have heard of perimenopause, ectopic pregnancy, and skipping ovulation. I have back ach and that’s it so I def know its not ectopic. Why is this happening now?

    • DP Nguyen September 16, 2013, 1:02 am

      You might be entering into perimenopause. That is what it sounds like, considering your age. Or your period might be late. Backaches can be PMS symptom or it could be unrelated to your period at all.

  • anum September 14, 2013, 7:29 am

    hi doctor i have taken PRIMOLUT N for periods control ( like not having periods ) when i left that on the same day my periods start coming on 10 aug , 2013 .problem is in sep according to last periods my new date was 9 sep 2013 but till i dont have my periods.. i can feel crambs in legs white fluid coming out from vagina but no periods

  • Ash September 12, 2013, 8:43 am

    Hi, Dr.
    I am 16 years old and I got my period when I was about 11. I am about 2 maybe 2 1/2 months late on my period. My last period was on July 15th, 2013 and it is now September 12, 2013. I am very nervous about this. I never had sex so we can rule out pregnancy. Why is my period so late? Should I be very worried about this or is this just a regular skipped period? Please get back to me as soon as possible.

    • Ash September 12, 2013, 9:01 am

      And I also have a little discharge which looks clear or a little yellowish. I feel normal and nothing has changed with my appetite and I’m not very active. I don’t know if I have been stressed lately either. My periods have always been normal but I don’t know what’s happening to me now!

      • Ash September 12, 2013, 10:25 am

        Oh and my cycle is usually 23-24 days apart.

        • Ash September 12, 2013, 10:46 am

          And I am also not 5’2 and 95lbs if that matters.

      • DP Nguyen September 16, 2013, 1:46 am

        I don’t think it is anything you should worry about now. You are young, and it is normal to have irregular periods when you are a teenager. Sometimes it just takes it a little while for things to even out.

  • Blu September 3, 2013, 1:02 am

    My wife missed her period? Pregnant? We had unprotected sex with the pull out method on the 23 day of her cycle. She is now between 1 to 2 weeks late. It was the only time we had intercourse during her cycle. I keep track of her cycle since she does not. I track dates only. She does not let me track temperature or other ovulation detection methods. Her cycle is about 26 days. Her longest cycle has been 29 days and shortest 23 days. She is 40 years young. I have been tracking her cycle since her period came back about 1 month after our son was 1. He is now just over 2. She stop BC after we were married because she thought it made her sick. I figure she ovulates about day 13 or between day 9 and 16 of cycle. We do not have sex between days 7 – 18 of cycle. Could she have ovulated late around 22 day of cycle? She just had an annual pap on 21 day cycle. Could the pap have caused a missed period? She spent a long weekend with her girlfriend in Ca wine country during middle of her cycle. Her girlfriends had their periods. Could their cycles have synced? She started to work out at the gym and eat really healthy before her weekend away. Her boss has her under tons of stress lately. My son broke his arm last week, and our older son is in trouble with the law again. We have not taken any test yet. Should I be doing something different?

    • DP Nguyen September 11, 2013, 12:19 am

      Pap smears will not cause missed period. Stress can make your period late.If you are worried about sex, why not use condoms when you have sex for an extra precaution? But if you guys are worried, take a home pregnancy test.

  • Joyful August 30, 2013, 7:47 pm

    I went to Jamaica earlier this month on August 2. My period also started that day and ended around the August 8. I lost my virginity while I was there but the guy used protection and he never did ejaculate inside of me and the condom was empty when he took it off.. Anyways I told one of my friends and she was freaking out and told me to go take a pregnancy test and I took one four days before my next period was due and it was negative. I know that my period will be late because most times it is.. I’m only 16 and I don’t want kids… Do you think it possible that I could be preggo..? I’m just really scared and stressing over this and by the way we had sex on the 17th day of my cycle

    • DP Nguyen September 11, 2013, 12:20 am

      Your period might just be off because you were traveling. If you are worried, take a home pregnancy test. but I think you should be fine.

  • Audrey sawtelle August 30, 2013, 3:43 pm

    I am about to be 21 in 3 months and I have never had a period in my life. I’m only 5 foot 3 and like 97 pounds. I’ve been sexually active for like 3 years now and I was just wondering if I can even ovulate since I haven’t started yet. My doctors are not sure what is wrong and want to put me thru a bunch of tests.

    • DP Nguyen September 11, 2013, 12:21 am

      You should go get the tests to figure out what is causing you to not have any periods at all. You might not be ovulating but there also may be other problems with your reproductive organs so it’s good to get the tests to help the doctors figure out what is going on with you. Good luck.

  • Crimson August 30, 2013, 7:35 am


    So I’m 23 and a bit overweight. Last had sex about 5 months ago where I might’ve caught an urinary infection from my boyfriend. I took some antibiotics and soon I got better. I had my normal ‘irregular’ period (about 45 – 50 days apart) but haven’t had my period for last month and now this months hasn’t come yet. Also instead of getting my period this month, I just had light spotting. I had gained extra weight over the past 3 months but am not sure and hoping nothing’s wrong with my body. I hope i don’t become infertile.

    • DP Nguyen September 11, 2013, 12:24 am

      It might be the extra weight that you’ve gained that is causing you to miss your periods. If you lose some weight, there’s a chance that your periods will become more regular again. Good luck

  • arki_lit August 30, 2013, 7:07 am

    Hi! I also had this missed period for around 18 days now.
    I already had a check-up with my ob-gyn. She told that it’s because of hormonal imbalance since the pregnancy test is negative. She gave me an oral tab “Provera”, that i should take for ten days. After this, i should expect my menses. I hope my period will be back. I just turn 37 years old and I can’t believe if is this also a sign of perimenopausal?

    • DP Nguyen September 11, 2013, 12:23 am

      It might be a perimenopausal symptom… But it does definitely sound like a hormonal imbalance so I would listen to the doctor and take Provera. Good luck.

    I’m 28 yrs old. I usually have a cycle of 35 days. I had PCOS when I was young(17 yrs). Had been on medication for few years and my last scan said that there are no more cysts. I started having my periods regularly (for the past 6 yrs) with a cycle gap of 35 days. Last year I had thyroid test which also said that its normal. My last periods was on June 8-10,2013. I’m not sexually active and not on any contraceptive pills. I’ve not got my periods still. My life style has been pretty much the same. I lost 2 kgs and then got back to the same weight again (rather maintaining the same weight for the past 10 yrs) I’ve given my blood for testing. Could you please advise.

      It is possible that the weight loss may have affected your periods… But since you have been pretty regular for the last 6 years, I would go see a gynecologist to run some tests to figure out what is causing your missed periods.

    Hi, I am 21 years old and have not been sexually active for almost 3 years. I first started my period at the age of 9 and have had it regularly since then. I have had a child who is now 4 (I did have him very young) but even after that my periods have always been regular. My last period was about 4 months ago and which is really weird because my sister and I always start and end the same time and live together. Anyways i have had ovulation and cramps and i have been cranky but no period and every time she has gotten hers iv’e had the symptoms but nothing. Now I am starting to get very bad pains in my vaginal area (it feels like i’m being hit with a hammer) I am just so lost on what it could be. if you have any advice please help….. Thanks

      You should go see a doctor to figure what is causing you to have those pains. It might be a cyst or a polyp or any number of other problems… So please go see a gynecologist and get an exam. Good luck.

    My period has never been regular. it’s always have been a few days early or late sometimes going upto 21 days late. But this time it’s been two months since my last period. i am a little chubby on the side . so what should i do? i know i’m not pregnant nor do i use any contraceptive pills

      I would go see a gynecologist to figure out what is causing your missed periods. It might be a hormonal issue, or PCOS (more common in overweight women), or it could be you aren’t ovulating or you missed ovulation this month. If your period doesn’t come next month, I would definitely go see a doctor. Good luck

    Hi Dr.
    Well I’m 39 , had bleeding for 35 days straight 6 months ago
    Was taken off birth control the low dose pill then put on the POP pill and continued to bleed so was taken off that . No birth control since then & sexually active with my boyfriend ,we use the withdrawal method.

    In the past I’ve had numerous ultrasounds & MRI which showed I have uterine fibroids , polysistyc ovarian syndrome & endometriosis .
    Now recently I’ve had 2 internal & external ultrasounds that show nothing ?
    So confused? Does all the symptoms go away with time? All my sisters & cousins have all had hysterectomy’s in thier 40’s due to thier abnormal bleeding.

    As of now my periods are 6-7 days long & heavy with severe cramping & clotting.
    I usually have my period every 17 days.
    But now I’m 3 days late & worried.
    My boyfriend & I aren’t ready for children nor do we know if we ever want to have them.
    I’m trying not to stress to much and hoping ill get my period soon.
    But any answers would help , Thank You so much for your time .

      If you are having unprotected sex (the withdrawal method) counts as unprotected sex, there is a very high likely that you will and can get pregnant. So you really should consider using a condom if you do not want to take birth control pills or even the birth control shot to prevent pregnant. If you are not ready for children or do not know if you want children, please do not have unprotected sex.

      Since you are late on your period, take a home pregnancy test if your period doesn’t come.

      About your concerns, I would go see a gynecologist who can examine your health and answer your questions. Best of luck to you.

    Well my last period was in June I think the last day was around the 20th-21st and haven’t had a period since. I took a home first response pregnancy test and it was negative. I am however going to take another one if I don’t start by August. I don’t think I’ve been stressed out? I’ve been out of the question tired, but I’m not sure if that’s just from lack of sleep. I hate to admit it ha but I’ve also been kind of gassy. I have a boyfriend and I have been sexually active. My best friend took home tests and they were all negative, then she found out at like 3 months but by then she was having a miscarriage, because she was unaware. Any suggestions? I don’t know what to think. Should I wait or schedule an appt?

    • DP Nguyen August 24, 2013, 11:15 am

      You should schedule an appoint with the doctor. Extreme exhaustion and gas are pregnancy symptoms, so I would go the doctor and have them do an ultrasound or a blood pregnancy test, since you are sexually active. Good luck!

    I am 21 years old & I will be two weeks late for my period tomorrow. I currently have a boyfriend & have been sexually active so there is a possibility I may be pregnant. I did a home pregnancy test on Monday, August 19th (I was a week late at this point) & it was negative, it was First Response. Then I went to the doctor yesterday & did another pregnancy test, it was negative & he acted as if I had nothing to worry about when I told him I was almost two weeks late! I had to convince him to give me a req for a blood test to check if I’m pregnant & he was acting as if there was no need to do that but he gave me one anyway. So I’m going today after work to get a blood test. I have absolutely no pregnancy symptoms & feel completely normal. I’ve been having cramps & been cranky as if I’m about to start my period & then I just don’t. What’s going on? :(
