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.

    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.

    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.

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.

  • 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.

    Hey, I’m seventeen. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on Valentine’s Day, but I was supposed to start the very next day. But I didnt. It has now been like eight days. I’m not showing pregnancy symptoms at all. I need help.

  • Jherica February 15, 2015, 6:36 pm

    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.

  • Kenya February 5, 2015, 5:45 pm

    Hi Im 24 yrs old I am sexually active, I have had irregular periods and stuff but recently in Oct 2014 I spotted for 3 days and then it stopped, and then in Nov 2014 I had my period for the 5 days and then in Dec I did not have my period and then in Jan 2015 I didnt have my period and now it is Feb and still no period. I have taken 2 test in the past 2 months and they were neg, ive been nausous and sleepy, Ive had tender breast and slight cramps, ive been really moody lately as well. Me and my boyfriend have been trying for 2 years and this has never happened. Could I be pregnant?

  • 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?

  • apple February 2, 2015, 8:17 pm

  • Jewel January 30, 2015, 12:07 am

    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???

  • evet January 24, 2015, 1:06 am

    • Sarah March 12, 2015, 6:14 pm

      I am having the same issue. I went to my doctor and she tested my TSH, FSH, LH, and prolactin levels. She also did an ultrasound. I am going back in a few days to find out the results. I will post on here what I find out, but all of you really should go to a doctor because there are so many reasons this could be happening and it isn’t the same for everyone.

  • 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 .

  • Haley Marie January 21, 2015, 1:33 pm

    I am 19, I started my period at 13, and since then I have pretty regular periods. I was supposed to began my period on Jan 4-7 yet its the 20th and still no sign. I’m am not sexually active so pregnancy is out of the question. But I do fear I might have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome but the only symptom is that I’m hairy, but since this month I have had regular periods. I am sort of stressed, but its nothing I have dealt with before. Ideas?

  • Salina January 17, 2015, 2:52 pm

    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 ?

  • Indigo January 15, 2015, 5:25 pm

    I’m 17 years old and have missed my period for one month now. So far it has no sign of showing up. I’ve never had sex and i’ve been giving off a lot of discharge but no period. 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?

    • DP Nguyen January 12, 2015, 11:10 pm

      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.

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.

    For example, if my partner and I have sex a day before I stop taking the pill, will I become pregnant? Please help!

    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

    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

    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

      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.

  • Linda November 14, 2014, 8:40 pm

    I’m 38 and have always been on a 28 or 29 day cycle except when I had my 2 children. Currently, I haven’t had my menstrual in 9 weeks. I had a tubal 17 years ago. 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.

  • Jordan November 9, 2014, 7:38 am

I had 6 periods before this happened. I could not possibly be pregnant as I have not had sex would you have any idea what it is?

  • Inge October 29, 2014, 9:42 am


    The last few month I have always gotten my period around the 21st of each month, give or take a day or two. I had sex on the 19th just before my period was due around the 21st. My period is now 8 days late and pregnancy test came back negative. Please help!!!

    • Ale November 4, 2014, 1:22 pm

      If this makes you feel better! I almost missed my period for a month! It was Due acound Oct 8 and didn’t get it until Nov 2! It was a relief for me. I think the stress was causing me to miss it.

  • Dee October 26, 2014, 11:18 am


    I have been having delayed periods from August 2013 to September 2014. They finally got regular on the dot as they have always been. 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, 10:21 am

      Im having the same problem too! Like almost exactly the same, i posted the post right under yours. I really hope someone with some knowledge replies to us soon! i just took another ECP earlier… did you take 2 pills at once? or seperately?

    • Sharon Chiere October 29, 2014, 4:35 am

      I have the same problem. My case os excatly the same. After taking 2 ECPs before i did get my period. Later aftet some days i had protected sex on 3rd day of my period. None of us came. I took 4 UPTs at home over these 2 months. All were negative. I m scared

  • 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

    hi doctor,
    my gf didnt get periods from 4 months. we checked 2 times in the hospital but it was negative . and they gave her some medicine for three days with vitiman E but it didnt work. we are so tension what might happen please help us.

  • Jeshna October 19, 2014, 11:33 pm

    I had sex in July, I even took Ipill and one week after that I got my menses. And after that my menses was due on 19th August but I missed it. 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.
    Thank you

  • stephanie October 19, 2014, 5:30 pm

  • emily sikolia October 18, 2014, 6:19 am

  • Sonu October 16, 2014, 10:26 am

    I have missed one period and i am waiting for the second .
    I had regular periods for the past 10 months .Last year also i had 2 missed periods.
    After which the doctor gave me provera and i got my periods back.However this time we are ttc and i was never on birth control pills.Not sure if i am pregnant ,i took a test somedays back it came out to be negative.I am not stressed and have normal weight.
    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.
    Is it possible I’m pregnant?

  • anna marie samonte October 5, 2014, 10:42 pm

  • kylie October 5, 2014, 4:03 pm

  • 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?

    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

  • 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

    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.

  • Crystal Coleman June 13, 2014, 11:24 am

    • 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.

      • Kristalyn November 21, 2014, 4:28 am

        My situation is similar to the ladies above. It’s Nov 1621st, and I haven’t had a period since Sept 13th miyis the same, no changes in my diet,no sudden ex medications, im not pregnant.. not weight loss or gain. everything the same.

And it doesnt even last for 3p seconds but my gooness.. the pain itself brings me to my knees and that scares me. I’ve never m period before.mush lees ever been late.. this isabnormal for my body.

        • Niya November 22, 2014, 7:03 am

          You may have a bacterial infection. Go see a gynecologist asap

  • 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 ?

  • Terah May 17, 2014, 10:38 pm

    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.

        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 23 have been off pill since September n no sex since then.had only one month mens after stopping pills now its 5 months since my last mens with only spotting. Did 4 preg test all negative..is DAT normal

  • Ang February 3, 2014, 12:47 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!

  • Mary January 27, 2014, 3:20 pm

  • Laura January 20, 2014, 10:21 am

    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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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.

    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.

    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 :D 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

    Hi my Name is Karen I am 33 years old . I have not gotten my period for 3months and I was wondering why I haven’t gotten I have taken a test before and negative . Last night I gotten sick and I have been getting head ace . Could I be pregnant now . I am feeling filters inside .

    Im 13 , and ive had regular periods for about 3 years . Ive been under a lot of stress , but ive still had cramps and everything that goes a long with a period , but the period itself. Is it just the stress?

    • 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.

  • maarina September 16, 2013, 10:34 pm

    im 25 years old,im a mother of a 5 years old kid,im delayed for almost 3 months and im not pregnant,before im delayed 2 months but im worried at this time.i often have a head ache,im stress in my work but i didnt expect to be delayed like this.
    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.

  • samyra mankaa August 29, 2013, 2:42 pm

    • DP Nguyen September 11, 2013, 12:22 am

      Go to the doctor and ask him to help you figure out why you aren’t having your periods.

  • Rupa August 27, 2013, 3:02 pm


    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.

    • DP Nguyen August 29, 2013, 10:23 am

      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.

  • Ciara August 27, 2013, 12:42 am

    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

    • DP Nguyen August 29, 2013, 10:26 am

      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.

  • ashwini August 26, 2013, 4:26 am

    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

    • DP Nguyen August 29, 2013, 10:29 am

      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

  • Marie August 23, 2013, 1:39 pm

    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 .

    • DP Nguyen August 24, 2013, 11:14 am

      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.

  • Shelby August 23, 2013, 11:16 am

    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!

  • Courtney August 23, 2013, 9:45 am


    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? :(

    • DP Nguyen August 24, 2013, 11:17 am

      Your period might just be late, and it will start soon. But I think the blood test will be able to help alleviate your fears. Sometimes, we miss periods or have a late period due to stress and other things going on in our lives. Try not to worry too much. Your period will come soon, I bet.

    • Emma November 4, 2013, 6:59 pm

      What happened in the end? I am in the same situation, 21, always been regular, can’t be pregnant. But randomly 2 weeks late! No other symptoms. So weird…

  • cristina August 21, 2013, 8:10 pm

    hi im 16 years old i had sex for the past 3 months and mi last period was on july the 4 im really scared i did a home pregnacy test the first week that i missed mi period and it came out negative but ive been having these weird sintoms like throwing up and i get tired more than often is that normal or what could it be???

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 11:40 pm

      I would go to the doctor and get a blood pregnancy test, because you sound like you could be pregnant.

  • JENNIFER August 21, 2013, 3:01 pm

    I am 34 yrs old and i have my period on june 19 and july 20 but i have not had one for aug. and 2 days late and i took a hpt on 18 of aug and it came out negative. what should i do?

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 5:40 pm

      You should wait a few days and take another HPT. If you don’t have your period in the next week or so, go to the doctor and get a blood preg test. Good luck!

  • Mariana August 21, 2013, 5:54 am

    Hi im 13 and im really scared i havent had my period since late june and im not pregnant im a virgin i dont like going to the doctors and im shy to talk to my mom about things like this i started my period when i was 12 and have been overwheight almost all my life but since june i havent got my period Can you please help me idk whats rong :(

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 5:41 pm

      I wouldn’t worry too much. It is possible that due to your overweight, it’s maybe PCOS – where you are not ovulating every month. And because you are still a teenager, it might be because your body hasn’t become more regular yet. But I would talk to your mom about what’s going on with you, and she will help reassure you.

  • Charlotte August 20, 2013, 5:21 pm

    Hi–this article was really helpful. I’ve been on birth control for 3 and a half years and came off june 15th. I have not had a period yet. I took a pregnancy test july 24th (about one week late) and 2 more at 1 week intervals after that. All were negative. I’ve been sexually active since stopping birth control but I’ve been using condoms every time. I know that coming off birth control can cause irregular periods but I have come off birth control after being on it for 3 years before and my periods came back completely regularly. I always had regular periods. I am 26. I have not had any changes in schedule, stress level, or weight. I do not feel any different. The only thing I can think of is that for the past year I’ve been putting 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed in my breakfast nearly every day. I read an article that said lignans in flax seed can change menstrual cycles so I stopped eating flaxseed since mid july. Could that really be why my cycle is so late? And if that is the reason, how long would I need to give up flaxseed before my cycle returns? Any help at all would be much appreciated!

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 5:46 pm

      Sometimes, your body reacts differently each time that you stop taking birth control. I suggest that you talk to your gynecologist or doctor about your concerns and he/she will help alleviate your worries. But it may be due to your body reacting differently to stopping the hormones from the birth control. Also, it might be a good idea to go get a blood pregnancy test to double check that you are indeed not pregnant. Good luck

  • Allison August 20, 2013, 6:58 am

    Hi :)
    I am 37 years old and I have two young children. I had my last normal period on the 3rd June. I am currently not on any hormonal birth control (i used to take Diane 35ED until about 6 months ago.) although I am sexually active, my partner and I are using condoms and being vigilant with them. Early in July one of the condoms broke and I took the morning after pill within 12 hours of this.

    I am now waiting! I have been very tired and also experiencing significant nagging cramping, not disimiliar to early pregnancy cramping as I remembered from my previous pregnancies. I took a Clearblue digitial home pregnancy test yesterday and it said “Positive1 to 2 weeks”. Today I went to see my doctor. Her urine test on me said negative and she then performed an ultrasound scan which showed no sac. The lining is there and in her words “full” and she thought my period should be very close to arriving.
    Any thoughts?? How could I get a positive test one day and a negative result plus empty scan the next?? Thanks so much for your help on this :)

    • Allison August 20, 2013, 7:07 am

      I will just add also that I am otherwise fit and healthy, and not overweight. The only significant stress I have in my life (other than looking after two young ones!) is that I will be moving house before the end of the year. It isnt urgent however and something that has been on the cards for a while.

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 5:48 pm

      False positives can happen with home pregnancy test. If your doctor did an ultrasound scan, then your period should be arriving soon.

  • Erika August 18, 2013, 9:24 am

    Hi. I am 25 years old. I have a 6 year old along with much stress around me. I am birth control and have been since my son. A couple of months ago I began taking anti depression pills. I take my birth control however at times I may forget and have to double up. I had sex 2 and half months ago and the first period following was very light spotting for one day. This month I have completely missed it. Yes I am stressing because of this as I do not want a child at this time. And I’m against abortion and couldn’t give up my child. Overweight and I’m really scared to find out. But please help me. Tell me what this could possible be.

      It sounds like it is possible that you have gotten pregnant. But I really would take a home pregnancy test or go see a doctor for a blood pregnancy test to check to see if you are pregnant.

  • Holli August 17, 2013, 9:48 pm

    Hello I am 37 years old, I have ALWAYS been regular, never missed a period unless I was pregnant, which was a total of 6 times. Yes I have six kids. After the last child, 6 years ago I had a tubal ligation(actually had part of the tube cut out). Now this month my period for whatever reason diecided not to show. I took a pregnancy test when I was 12 days late. It came back neg. obviously, but I dont understand whats going on. I have made an appointment with my obgyn but I’m so worried its something serious.

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 6:01 pm

      I would discuss this with your OB/GYN because I think he can give you more definitive answers on what is going on with you.

  • tiffmess August 17, 2013, 9:59 am

    Hi! You are so great to take time out of your life to do this!!! (I just stumbled on your blog this morning.)
    So I stopped birth control May 5th of this year and had a regular period. The end of May I started bleeding again, which seemed normal. Except the bleeding felt like only spotting which wasn’t normal. And then it didn’t stop. I bled this spotting for over a month. I stopped bleeding the first week of July. And now I have no hint of a period. No spots or anything. It’s been a month and a half and I’m starting to be a bit anxious.
    Oh, not pregnant as the 4-5 tests shave indicated (much to my dismay!) My OB is booked until next year… Can you help any?

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 6:03 pm

      I think you need to go see a OB, or find another gynecologist to check to see what you are having such irregular spotting. They can do some tests and get a more definitive answer for you. But sometimes, spotting and irregular bleeding can occur after you stop birth control. It can sometimes mess up your cycle but again I think a OB/GYN will have more concrete answers for you. I wish you all the best of luck

  • Hailey August 16, 2013, 11:57 pm

    Hi, I am 15 years old and I started having my period when I was 12 and ever since I started they have been irregular. Along with being irregular when they did come they would last around 20 days. Well now I have not had a period for 7 months and I am still a virgin so I know I am not pregnant. When I did go to the Gyno I was told I had a cyst that popped and it was a reason why my period lasted for 24 days. I was hoping you could tell me if maybe there is something wrong.

    • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 6:04 pm

      If the gyno said it was a cyst that popped, that is probably the cause. Ovarian cysts can cause irregular periods

  • Safeyah August 16, 2013, 1:57 pm

    hi, i’m 15 and a virgin yet i’m 3 months late for my period. i’m not very stressed or anything but i’m really not sure what it could be. please help

  • KP August 16, 2013, 11:58 am

    Hi there!

    I had been on birth control for about 9 years and went off in January as my fiancé and I are planning to conceive after our wedding this fall.

    Since going off the pill my periods were regular right away, averaging from 30-32 days apart but mostly 31 (I kept track).

    My period was due August 12 (31 days) and I still haven’t gotten it. I am 4 days late now.

    I have taken three home pregnancy tests now which were all negative.

    What should my next step be? I just find it so odd that I’m late since I haven’t been late in 8 months (or the 9 years I was on the pill).


  • Kerry August 16, 2013, 1:21 am


    I am 35 years old and I have skipped a period. I have always been regular.

    I have done home pregnancy tests and a pregnancy blood test which were all negative.
    I was recently admitted to hospital with abdominal pains. The doctors could not get to the bottom of it. I had a chest xray and both internal and external ultrasounds. They were all clear along with full blood counts. However one of my rine samples showed red blood cells which meant there could be an infection. This was sent off for further tests which came back clear.

    I have also been having ovulation blood tests to detect when i am ovulating and it showed I was ovulating on 9th of August and the doctor said my period will follow soon but there is still no sign.

    We have been ttc for eight months now without success. I already have one child who is three years old. Can you help please?

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:27 am

      If you were ovulating on August 9th, you probably won’t get your period until the end of next week. It usually takes about 14 days (on a 28 day cycle) from ovulation to the time you have a period. So I would be patient and wait. Since you are trying to conceive, if you do not get your period at the end of next week or the week of the 26th, I suggest taking a home pregnancy test.

  • Jess August 15, 2013, 9:44 pm


    I had my two last periods on the 1st June and the 3rd of July. My period tracker is saying that my period should’ve came on Monday the 12th August and now its almost Friday and still no sign of it coming. I was feeling nausea on Monday to foods that I love even tea! So i was worried and did a at home test as well as went to the doctor to do a blood test and they both came back negative. My last sexual intercouse was the last weekend in July so I’m kind of worried.

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:28 am

      It might be too soon for those tests to come back positive. Not enough of the pregnancy hormone in your blood. If you are not pregnant, however, you should get your period soon. Maybe the stress has delayed it. So keep testing and go back to the doctor if you don’t have your period by the end of the month.

      • Jess August 19, 2013, 4:59 pm

        Thank for your help. I’m currently now 7 days late. If I don’t get it by this weekend I’ll try a home test again.

        • DP Nguyen August 21, 2013, 5:59 pm

          Good luck!

  • Brittney August 15, 2013, 11:29 am

    Hello, My name is brittney and im just 23 years old.. and i have always had irregular periods.. and now i want a baby… and i am having a really hard time with that.. so can you guys give me some information on how to get pregnant.. please

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:31 am

      You might want to get one of those ovulation kits, that predict when you are ovulating (since with irregular periods, you might not ovulate as regularly as other women), and have sex during the peak times when you ovulate. Good luck.

    • KWIREMAN August 16, 2013, 9:35 am

      I am 27 and at 23 started to also try to get pregnant. I have also always had irregular periods. I would say you need to start by getting checked out by your OB or a family doctor see what all they can tell you. You may just not be timing it correctly. When you have irrgeular periods you have to go by your own schedule not the normal 28 day cycle that most women have. You have to do the ovulation test to help you narrow down that day that you are most fertile. I would start there and see what happens. Good luck!

  • Heena August 14, 2013, 3:44 pm

    I didnt got my periods from 2 months and i m not pregnant please suggest me some tablets which solve my problems and get me my periods

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:32 am

      I would go to the doctor to figure out why you aren’t having periods. Good luck.

  • Alexa August 14, 2013, 3:28 am

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:32 am

      Yes, please go see a doctor and figure out why you have not had periods for three months. Good luck!

  • Heather August 13, 2013, 1:13 pm

    I am 28 years old, have one child and have had 3 miscarriages. I am 2 weeks late on my period, seeing that my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a few years we were so excited! Took lots of home pregnancy tests that all turned out negative. Wanted to know if I was so I went and got a blood pregnancy test. Normally I would not do this but I was having just about every pregnancy symptom except a positive test. Blood test came back negative! So now what? Still have not started my period, I dont feel stressed, I am a little over weight, eat healthy, dont get sick much, and they have ALWAYS been regular before! What do I do?

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:34 am

      Sometimes, if you go to take a blood pregnancy test and it’s too early – not enough pregnancy hormones built up in your blood test, it could still read negative enough though you are pregnant. I would wait a few weeks and test again.

  • kelly August 13, 2013, 11:14 am

    Ive hadnt has my period since the first part of may and i know that im not pregnant i knw ive been under alot of stress wit 3kids what should i do to try to make my period to become regular again but and im only 26

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:35 am

      It is probably stress, but I would suggest going to see a gynecologist to help. Sometimes, getting on birth control can regulate periods.

  • Jessica August 13, 2013, 9:22 am

    I’m in great fear right now because I’ve missed my period. I have been having them for over 7 years and they have always come on the 28th day or a day or two before. Two weeks after my last period I had surgery and during surgery a balloon burst in a vein of my abdomen but the doctor assured me everything was fine. After, I experienced some spotting but I didn’t mention it to the doctor. When I went back for my check up the doctor saw a shadow through the veinous ultra sound… Could this be a zygote I thought. After I missed my period for sure, I took 4 pregnancy test from two different brands which all came back negative. At this point I don’t know what to do.

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:35 am

      Go to your doctor and tell him your concerns. And get a blood pregnancy test at the doctor’s office.

  • vaishali August 13, 2013, 6:48 am

    Hi, I am 31 years old. I had missed my periods this month. Last time it was on June 23rd, 2013. I may not pregnant as my husband used protection. I am very scared why this happening to me.

    • yanli August 13, 2013, 8:31 am

      Hi, Vaishali, I am about the same age and having same problem. I have missed my 2 menstrual periods. my last period was 9th of June and I was definitely not pregnant. (still didn’t come :( . if you can be so sure that you are not pregnant, then it might be something wrong. But the 1st thing you need to do is to take pregnancy test and that can be done at home. My bf and I use protection always, but you never trust condom 100%. so do check not presume it. If result shows negative, it might be the stress, anxiety or environment change etc. but after a short while , you should get your period (hopefully). I would suggest you to go to your GP asap, GP probably will take your urine sample again! and send it to lab. If result shows negative, the 2nd thing your GP will probably do is to take your blood sample to check your hormone level, or thyroid level which can alter your ovulation. anyway, during this period, you should try to relax, eat healthily, get enough sleep. Last stage, which I hope I will not undergo is to do TV (transvaginal scan) or sonography to check the womb or ovary or fallopian tube. I do not like this.. hopefully we both will have period before last stage. good luck on both of us!!!

      • yanli August 13, 2013, 8:34 am

        PS: this is only my opinion, I am not a doctor neither. :)

  • brittany August 13, 2013, 4:11 am

    Hi..Im 15 years old and i havent had my period in almost 3 years and almost every time i wipe theres blood on it..whats wrong with me?

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:37 am

      I don’t think there is anything wrong with you. When you had your period three years ago, was it a real period with lots of bleeding for 3-7 days? But it might be that you haven’t had a period yet, and your period will soon come. You are probably spotting if you wipe and there is blood so your body is getting ready to have a period. Hope that helps

  • Lilly August 13, 2013, 12:10 am

    I’m 35. No children. My last menstration was May. My husband and I have been TTC naturally for over a year. I’ve taken an obsessive amount of pregnancies tests that have all proven negative. No pain. Great health. I barely get colds. I’ll admit I need to lose around 20 pounds- no more no less.
    My worst nightmare is to end up on one of those lifetime reality “didn’t know” shows. I live in a region where I have had disastrous past experiences with the best OBGYNs in town. My last appt with everybody’s favorite resulted in my doc trying to talk me into an IUD. I reminded him I had no children & was TTC and he should know this since he had been my doc for a year. In search of a Doc who will give me better care than not reading my chart or telling me not to be stressed.

    • DP Nguyen August 16, 2013, 9:40 am

      I would recommend that you lose the weight – since when you have irregular periods, losing weight often really helps your body get into the best hormonal shape. Once you’ve lost the weight, I think it might be easier for you to naturally conceive. For example, with PCOS, women who lose weight often start to ovulate more regularly. So try that first. And exercise, eat right, and do try not to be stressed. In the meanwhile, if you are worried about “not knowing if you are pregnant,” keep taking home pregnancy tests and keep taking them. And pay attention to your body. Avoid drinking and smoking, just in case. Hope that helps.

  • Addie August 12, 2013, 10:03 am

    Hello, my name is Addie. I had sex a couple months ago. We used a condom and I was on birth control. I had my period that month. Then next month I did not so I stopped taking my birth control thinking that was it. I still have not had my period and its been about 3 months?

    • DP Nguyen August 12, 2013, 9:16 pm

      Sometimes, stopping birth control can mess up the hormones in your body and it can take awhile before the hormones get back to normal. Since you have not had your period in 3 months, I would go see a gynecologist and talk to them about what’s going on with you.

  • Giselle August 12, 2013, 6:38 am

    Hi! I am a week late of my period. I am sexually active but my last sex was july 12th which was the 2nd day of my period. July 2 i took plan b pills, could that be a possible reason why im not yet having my period? I also work night shift. I already took pregnancy test once but it was negative. Im too stress with work.

    • DP Nguyen August 12, 2013, 9:17 pm

      It may be stress, but I would go take another home pregnancy test. Or go to the doctor and get a blood pregnancy test.

  • Ashlee August 11, 2013, 9:35 pm

    Hey . I am 15 . I recently missed my period . I was raped about 4 & a half weeks ago . At first I thought I was pregnant but I took a test & it came back negative . Help ??

    • Alyssa August 12, 2013, 6:36 am

      Hi Ashley, really sorry to read what happened to you. :(
      It could be to do with the stress involved that has caused you to miss a period? I hope you have some trustworthy adults or a doctor you can speak to.. All the best, I hope it works out ok for you.

    • DP Nguyen August 12, 2013, 9:24 pm

      I am so sorry, Ashlee. That’s a horrible tragedy that’s happened to you. Did you report the rape? Have you talked to someone about this? Please go and talk to your parents, a youth pastor, or an adult about what happened, so that they can help you and get you some counseling for this horrible event that happened to you. Please go see a doctor and report what happened to you. They can do an exam and a blood pregnancy test to see whether or not you are pregnant. If you are pregnant, please know that there are options out there – including adoption. Sometimes, happy things, such as a beautiful baby, can come out of such a tragedy. But please know that you also have the option of adoption if you are not ready to be a parent. I do hope that you are not pregnant. Sometimes, you may have missed a period due to the stress of the situation. But please go see a doctor and talk to someone, so that they can help you.

  • Sam August 11, 2013, 2:58 pm

    I’m 18 and today my period is 11 days late.
    Last month it was 7 days late but I still got my period.
    My problem is that I got some spotting today, but my period still has not come.
    I have not been sexually active, so I can’t be pregnant. But I’m starting to get really scared and I’m getting weird ideas of how I might have gotten pregnant.
    I got my period when I was 12 and this has never happened before.
    Can someone please help me?

    • DP Nguyen August 11, 2013, 2:06 pm

      If you aren’t sexually active, then you cannot be pregnant. If your period was late last month, it’s possible that your cycle is just changing or adjusting. So I would not be worried. Sometimes, that just happens in your teenage years. But you are NOT pregnant. Your period will come. Sometimes, spotting comes before you get your period. So you will get it soon! Good luck!

  • Jackie August 10, 2013, 9:36 pm

    I’m 18 and I’m a month and a half late for my period. I don’t get any spotting. I don’t know if I should go to the doctor or not. I do realize I get stressed a lot but I don’t know if that would be the problem. I have not been sexually active for about 2 years.

    • DP Nguyen August 11, 2013, 2:00 pm

      It is probably stress… I would not be too worried. Sometimes missing a period is perfectly fine. Stress or illness or something else going on in your life triggering you to not ovulate for whatever reason. I would not go to the doctor until you’ve missed two periods in a row. Good luck.

  • Rosa Miller August 10, 2013, 5:55 pm

    • DP Nguyen August 11, 2013, 1:58 pm

      Wow, that is a very long time to go without a period. Please go see a gynecologist so they can help you! I am sure it is just a hormonal imbalance or you are not ovulating. But get checked out!

  • Haley August 10, 2013, 10:36 am

    Ok i have a 9 mouth old son and after i had him my menstrual cycle when back to 28 cycle in November 2012 and it’s always been on time every time since I was 13 but in June I had a 35 day cycle but I’m not totally sure if I wasn’t just a week off but I finally starter on July the 1st and bleed for the normal 3 days and everything was fine until the 29th when I was suppose to start and I still haven’t started its 39 days today and Sunday I had very very little spotting like just a lite pink only when I wipe maybe about a hour then it stopped then it done the same thing again Tuesday and last night and now nothing and its just driving me crazy I just wish I knew what was going on with my body you know please help

    • DP Nguyen August 10, 2013, 12:06 pm

      How old are you? If you are older – late 30s or early 40s – sometimes starting to have irregular periods might be a sign that you are entering perimeonpause. Sometimes, after having children, your cycle can fluctuate a little, from hormones, from stress with a new baby, etc. Having a delayed period by a week really isn’t anything to be worried about. If you haven’t had your period after 45 days, then you might want go to see a OB/GYN. But sometimes, it’s normal for it to fluctuate; your hormones are trying to get back on track. I really think your period will come soon.

  • Tammy August 9, 2013, 4:00 pm

    Hi I am 14 this is my first time that my period come late. I start to have my period when im in six grade. And now im a freshmen. Im really worry about my period. Is that because im too stress. Do i need to go see the doctor? thank you

    • DP Nguyen August 10, 2013, 12:07 pm

      It’s so normal for your periods to fluctuate when you are a teenage. Stress really can affect your period and make it come later. I would not worry. And you do not need to go see a doctor. Your body’s hormones are still trying to even out. So you are normal. don’t worry.

  • Raman August 9, 2013, 1:17 pm

    I am missing my periods from last July like 3 month miss then 2 month regular,last period I had in June but july and this month again missed we are planning fr baby.i am really worried about that. What I should do?.i am not pregnant I did test at home.thnks

    • DP Nguyen August 10, 2013, 12:08 pm

      I think you might not be ovulating on a regular basis. If you are planning for a baby, I would go see your gynecologist to see why your periods are so irregular and see if they can run some tests to check your hormone levels.

  • Emily August 8, 2013, 9:12 pm

    My period had been regular for about a year, coming around the first or second of every month. But this month it’s been a week and it’s still not here. I’ve been having protected sex, possibly during ovulation, but we were very careful… Then after that I took a three week trip to Europe. This effected my eating and work out habits, I was also very homesick which would have contributed to stress I suppose, and I was wondering if my late period could be culture shock or if I could in fact be pregnant?

    • DP Nguyen August 10, 2013, 12:13 pm

      Traveling can REALLY screw up your periods. It messes with your circadian rhythm. Actually, it’s very common for flight attendants, who travel all the time, to have irregular periods due to the shift in the circadian rhythm and jetlag. So I don’t think you are pregnant. I think it’s a combination of traveling, change in your eating and exercise habits, and stress. You will get your period soon! Good luck.

  • Kay August 7, 2013, 6:48 pm

    My period is 7 days late and still hasnt come. Already took 3 home tests which were all negative and took a blood test at the doctors which also turned out to be negative. I have not been stressed (until recently when i missed my period) and I havent changed my diet/lifestyle habits. Everything has been the same. Is there a chance I’ll get my period later or could I have just missed it for this month?

    • DP Nguyen August 10, 2013, 12:18 pm

      Your period might just be late this month.

  • Momof2 August 7, 2013, 11:18 am

    I’m 30 and have 2 children (3yrs & 9 mos) …. Can a uterine prolapse cause a woman to miss a period?

    • DP Nguyen August 10, 2013, 12:25 pm

      If you’ve been having periods, then I don’t think that a uterine prolapse is to blame for the missed period. You should go to the doctor and get a blood pregnancy test. It’s possible that if there are changes in the uterine position, that it could affect your period but eventually your period would still come.

  • Supriya August 6, 2013, 11:39 am

    I took a pill for unwanted pregnancy. Since then the duration of my periods kept on reducing. From 3 days to 2 and then to 1. This month it dint happen at all. Its almost a week I missed my date. Please suggest the possible reasons. I have tested negative for pregnancy.

    • DP Nguyen August 10, 2013, 12:28 pm

      The pill affected your hormones, and affected how your body works and menstruation. If you don’t have your period in 45 days, go see a doctor to figure out what’s going on.

  • ashley August 5, 2013, 3:23 pm

    Im 11 and my period started in february (25th) its been about 5/6 months since my first period. Last time my period was 12 days late and now i was meant to get mine over a month ago. I have been stressing a lot and i don’t know if that’s the reason. I’ve been having pretty terrible headaches the past week and i don’t feel like eating at all and when i go to bed im so cold and then i wake up and im really hot and it keeps on changing and i don’t know the reason for this and if it’s normal can you help me? Thanks.

  • Texasgirl August 3, 2013, 9:24 pm

    About a year ago I was diagnosed with acute pericarditis, and have been dealing with getting over that, and the respiratory/GI problems that the meds left me with. I am 28, and in the last year my cycles have been getting longer and longer. I am now on day 92 in this cycle, and still waiting for my period to start. I have taken several pregnancy tests, all negative. Could my period have stopped due to my other health issues?

  • Starbursts320 August 3, 2013, 8:58 am

  • Courteney August 1, 2013, 10:53 pm

    So here’s my story maybe you can help

    My last period was on the week before June 4th then the weekend if that I had a passionate night with my boyfriend but we used protection. Then two weeks later I took a pregnancy test which said negative. Then in July 3rd (the week i usually have my period on) I had surgery on my knee. They took a urine test to see if I was pregnant but they didn’t tell me if I was or not. It’s been exactly 52 days since my last period and just this passed week I took another test which again said negative. I have no signs or anything but I’m still worried and unable to visit the doctor on why I’ve gas this missed period. Could it be because of the surgery?

  • April August 1, 2013, 4:32 am

    hi i am 13 and at the beginning of the year i didn’t eat very much my last period was in January and idk what to do help :(

  • Kirsten July 30, 2013, 12:21 am

    Hi. I’m 13. I got my period at age 11, and of course it was supposed to be irregular at first. It started getting regular once I turned 12. But now, I haven’t had my period in 2 months. I am on medicine due to a knee injury in softball, but the medication is only a stronger version of aleve, and it also keeps my knee from swelling up. I take the medicine twice a day, as told, breakfast and dinner. I haven’t finished my meds yet, and I’ve tried skipping a few days to see if that was the problem. I have never had sex, so I can’t be pregnant. I am stressed out sometimes, so possibly that could be it… But I’m still worried! I also have been gaining weight up to 150 lbs, and now I’m trying to lose it all again. I don’t understand why this is happening. I live with my dad, and it would be awkward to ask him to make me a gynecologist appointment, so I could ask his girlfriend to ask for me… But before I go and ask, I would really like some feedback on WHY my period is 2 months late? Almost 3! I’m very worried.

    hi, i’m 16 years old and my period is 3 days late, the last time I had sex was a week ago and we used the pull out method, I’ve been more tired than normal and have increased my eating habits, I have the craving for chips a lot. I am on birth control. is it possible that I might be pregnant or just be having a late period?

  • ter July 24, 2013, 2:25 am

    Unquestionably consider that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as other folks consider concerns that they just don’t recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

  • katie July 23, 2013, 8:39 pm

    I’m 22 and my period always comes 28-32 days from my last one.
    I am now 56 days from my last period. I have absolutely no symptoms of pregnancy and I have dons 3 pregnancy tests to confirm a negative result. Should I be worried? Is it possible that I’m pregnant? I don’t understand how I can be this late. For 10 years I have always been regular. I don’t exercise much, I haven’t put on any excess weight or changed my diet, I have been under a bit of stress but nothing that I lose any sleep over at night. I just don’t understand what could be wrong with me.

    As mention before i have missed my last two periods. I have a 22 day cycle. My only symptom is fatigue. Do you have any idea what could be causing this? Any help would be great. I have tried getting un to see my GP but no appointments are available for three weeks!!

    Hi, I’m 20 years old and have been diagnosed with PCOS (Polycycstic ovaries) last February. I was taking the Pill for 3 years due the cysts in my uterus. Since then when I stopped taking the pill (my GP told me to stop it), my cycle began like 34days, and this is the first time since February that my period is late. (5 days late). I did a pregnancy test but came negative..I am not that worried to being pregnant since me and my bf always have protected sex. I am thinking that my period is late due to the thoughts that have been going through my mind and it is becoming quite stressful. I have read that when being with PCOS, ovulation may not start….Anyone else with the same situation? Thanks.

  • Hailey July 10, 2013, 9:37 am

    I’m 15 and my boyfriend and I tried to have sex about 14 days after my last cycle. He used a condom, but my hymen didnt break. He rubbed up against it with the condom on and I was in too much pain, so he stopped. My period is one day late. I know it’s not something to worry about normally, but considering what happened (which was about a week ago), I’m very nervous. Also, I went skinny dipping in my pool the day before this incident. Could the chorine be affecting my period? Please don’t judge the actions I’ve done. I’m just very scared. Could I be pregnate, is it the chlorine, or is my period just late because I’m nervous about all of this?

  • A Blessing or A threat to my body? July 2, 2013, 9:23 am

    Hi, I’m 31 and I have 4 children. I had a tubal done in 2009 after the birth of my last child. My periods have been normal I guess 28+/- days ( after readying everyones comments) until Jan 2013. That’s when I started having problems! 33-38 days. Well now here it is July and I haven’t had a period since May 16th.** In 2011 I had laproscopic to check for endo in which my doc told me that my tubes and left ovary are severly scar’d and that she had to rupture a cyst on my left ovary during the surgery. ALSO that my left ovary does not move as it is stuck to the lining of my uterian wall.** I keep track of my periods and I was due a period June 13ish and nothing! I took a pt yesterday and it was neg but now the doc said I could have taken it at the wrong time? Anyways.. I have had headaches, weight gain, sick to my stomach at times. I’m not sure what to do. I have made an appointment with my GYN but its not til August. I’m scared!

  • Miranda July 1, 2013, 7:28 pm

    Hi. I am 23 years old. I got my first period at 17 and they were once every 3 months. By the time I was 20 I started to be regular getting them the last week of every month. Each time I got them I was very sick, I would throw up the first day and sometimes it would be so heavy and clotty that not even a shower would help. I would get terrible cramps to where I couldn’t move.
    The last time I had my period was 2 months ago going on 3(April). I have been patiently waiting, but still have no signs of my period coming. I took a pregnancy test in may but it was negative. Any thoughts? I visit my gyno each year and she has never said anything was wrong.

The doctors don’t know what is causing this. I live in UK and the doctors here are very bad, there isn’t any help for me from the medical side. Anyone who has experienced similar pains/period miss?

I mean, I have tender breasts and it feels like my tummys getting smaller or tighter but I’m not losing anything. And idk. HELP?!?!

    Could i be pregnant?
    Like i said, ive had a normal period since the last time i was sexually active.

  • Marie June 13, 2013, 5:05 am

    I have always had regular periods pretty much my entire life. Except when I was doing major work outs many years ago. I was very athletic and found that as you stated that you can go months without a period. It was a few months here and there nothing big. However. These past few years. My health has deteriorated extremely bad to worse. I had 2 back operations that went bad. Then had to have a morphine pump installed. My workout and physically demanding days were over. So was basically my normal day life. So I noticed as I was more and more stressed. I was having less periods. Skip one about each month. Then in Sept. 2012. My oldest daughter was killed. I found nothing seemed to help coup with grief. Even though I was already taken PTSD meds for many reasons I will not go into right now. I stopped all together from having a period up-till tonight. I honestly don’t know what to think. My back feels like my morphine pump has stopped working. My meds Valium and Xanax have stopped and I can’t stop crying. I am very emotional. I have basically closed myself off from life to the outside world. Cause I am so sad of answering and explaining why. I see a Psychoterist and he has even asked to have me go in for out patient. Which I declined. I have a young child I live for. She is my baby girl. I would never harm myself or anyone else. Although I can’t say I didn’t think that after my oldest daughter died. I have gained weight. In fact I am the biggest I have ever been in my life. Which is about 50lbs more than what I should be. I can’t exercise. I can’t walk for more than 5 to 10 minutes at a time and it really is depressing to know I’m in this state and rapidly deterating. If you have any suggestions. Please feel free to reply. Although. I have tried bereavement groups online. And I’m sorry losing a parent against losing a child is not the same to me. I have lost my father. I lost him in Katrina. I almost lost my life too. So I know that feeling. They are not the same. When you have a child that you carry for 9 months and raise and watch them grow up to become an adult. It is the best thing to see and feel. When you lose that child it feels like you’ve died with that child. So yes. I had another little baby late in life. I call her my miracle baby. Because if she wasn’t here. I don’t believe I would be here either. Am I losing my mind. I feel like all I want to do Is save my young daughter from all the hell in the world. I feel like I have become so over protective she is all I think of. I don’t even talk to my other half about anything anymore. Like he is nonexistent to me. Just here when he is. The flame is out. However. I don’t trust him. I don’t believe anything that comes out of his mouth and he is about as compassionate as a nat. His main priority is work. Which mine was till my youngest was born. Am I stressing out over way too much and how do I stop worrying all the time?

    hi im 17 and im a little over 3 weeks late. i’ve had my period for a little over 3 years now & some periods have been regular but others have been irregular. i have had a period that was about 3-4 weeks late before and when i got it it was really light and short. my last period started april 12 & ended april 17 (i cant remember if this was early, on time, or late but i think it was early). about a week before i was supposed to get my period i was really stressed for AP tests and school in general. i have also been feeling really upset lately. i also ran track but the season ended may 4th which was about 2 weeks before i was supposed to get my period so idk if this misse period is a normal thing, from stress, or from exercise. i am also getting more stressed from the missed period because it makes me think that i have a problem like cancer or that i wont be able to have kids when im older. i think my mom may get cysts n her ovaries so that makes me even more nervous that there might be something wrong. i am def not pregant because i am a virgin. can somebody please give me advice or something because i am really scared and upset and stressed and worried becaue i dont want to end up having ovarian cancer or cysts or something that prevents me from having kids so someone please answer me thank you

  • Sonya June 9, 2013, 2:19 pm

    Hi, I’m 34 and have 3 kids and stopped breastfeeding 2 years ago and I have my tubes tied. In January, I missed 3 periods in a row for the first time for no reason and my dr gave me those pill that make your period show up. It showed up and then I got my period again for 2 months and now I’ve missed another 3 months. I called my general doc and my gyn and no one seems to be concerned because I am not trying to conceive. Does that sound right to anyone else? I am concerned that something is wrong and they are like “do you want the medication to start your period?” NO, I want to know WHY it stopped. Am I being paraniod here?

    • Nikkie July 7, 2013, 1:19 am

      That sounds like what is going on with me…I’m 3 months late and have my tubes tied. I took a home pregnancy test just to make sure (the doctor is going to ask if I did anyways). Of course it was negative. I’m 25 years old, have 2 children and haven’t breastfed in about a year and a half. I’m calling the doctor Monday, but they’re just going to try and give me something to make it start. I want to know why all of a sudden it stopped!

    i’m 13 years old and i first got my period more than a year ago. my period has always been a bit irregular, but ever since i started using tampons instead of pads a couple months ago (due to the sports i do) it has been a lot lighter than usual. i am a virgin. also, my period almost never comes when i am asleep. if i am on my period sometimes it might come while i am asleep, but extremely lightly. is that weird? please help. thanks.

  • meagan June 4, 2013, 11:47 am

    I’m 19, I have been having sex but I am on birth control so it’s protected. But I am three and a hlaf weeks late I have pregnancy symptoms. I have been regular since I started the birth control I didn’t miss any pills. I took two pregnancy tests and they were negative. Could I still be pregnant? If not what could be wrong? I am starting to get really worried.

  • Ashlea Wilson June 3, 2013, 8:53 pm

  • Micaela May 31, 2013, 3:32 pm

    Hey, I’m 15. I missed my period this month. I usually get it on the second week of every month. This month I’ve been bloated and have gotten the usual symptoms of my period. But It still hasn’t come. There is no possible way I could be pregnant, I’m single and still a virgin. I have recently become very active. I’m on my school’s colorguard, and volleyball team. We just got out for summer but I haven’t been doing my usual activites. I am very healthy and have no medical problems. So what’s the deal? Help.

  • Natalie May 31, 2013, 6:34 am

    I’m 23yrs, I have not had my period for a month and I have done the home pregnancy tests and it’s a negative. What should I do? My husband and I are trying to expect a baby, but I don’t know why.

  • Kristal May 30, 2013, 1:06 am

  • Isabella May 26, 2013, 3:10 am

    I’m 14. I missed my period this month. I know for a fact I am NOT pregnant. But, I’ve only been eating 1 meal a day ( for losing weight. ) and I’ve been exercising every other day. What should I do?

    • Nikkie July 7, 2013, 1:13 am

      I read an article a few days ago about periods stopping or being late from not eating enough. Your body needs more than 1 meal a day…try some healthy snacks instead of no food :)

  • Kayla May 24, 2013, 11:43 pm

    I’m 15 years old and I’ve had my period since I’ve been 12 and sometimes ive been late… But, I haven’t had a period since feb 2nd, 2013.. And I’m not sexually active(still find it gross. lol) so no way I can be pregnant. Is this normal though? :/

  • Jess May 24, 2013, 7:41 pm

    Not a question, but missed my period this month because of stress and anxiety.
    Uh oh.
    Time to take a chill pill

  • Alyssa May 23, 2013, 7:13 pm

    Okay so here’s what’s going on. I’m 16. I’ve had my period since I was 11. But they are never regular. I am very late (24 days or so) I was late back in February and my period finally came in March I missed all of February and had my period in the exact time I was supposed to start in March. And I have not had a period since. I’ve taken 4 pregency test and they all came up negative? What’s going on??

  • sakshi May 23, 2013, 1:40 am

    is it possible that before having my 1st period i have done sex n i can get pregnant i have got my 1st and 2nd period but not 3rd period

  • Elizabeth May 22, 2013, 8:24 pm

    I’m 30 and was diagnosed with endometriosis stage 3/4 depending on the dr. I have had 3 laporscopic surgeries to remove scar tissue. The first was in 2004,second in 2009 and the latest was 2011. I cannot take the pill due to my migraine and previous mini stroke from the migraines. I had been on Lupron 3 rounds after each surgery and went through menopause, so the sympotomd i have now scare me. i have no children. In 2011 around May I missed my period, I’m not sexually active so pregnancy was never a factor. Even with meds it was still 2 months before I started again. Since then I have been pretty normal for me, off a week or early a week. Last month however it stopped again. Same thing, not sexually active. This time I have all the classic period symptoms for me. Breast pain, bloating, migraines, acne, night sweats, hot flashes, anxiety, severe pain and insomnia. Is there anything I can do naturally to help this? I lost 30 lbs but slowly so I don’t think that’s it. I have a new job, I was under a lot of stress with 2 deaths in the family. However I’m very uncomfortable. Any advice I would welcome.

  • Kay May 22, 2013, 3:38 pm

    I’m 16. I didn’t have my period for a little over two months. (last one was in February) I had protected sex once about 5 weeks ago and even though i’m sure i’m not pregnant, i still haven’t had my period. it is now May. i do have high stress levels (partially from not having my period -.-), I dance 6 hours a week and i do have a history of thyroid problems in my family. i’m usually pretty irregular but never to this degree. are any of these reasons why i haven’t gotten it? I’m really starting to worry.

  • jiya May 22, 2013, 4:50 am

    hello mam/sir,

    • rayna May 22, 2013, 7:21 am

      plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ans my ques plzzzzzzzzz

      • Brooke June 3, 2013, 8:34 pm

        Rayna. If your not sexually active then I wouldn’t worry. It could skip a month due to stress but also if you just started getting them.they could be irregular. Wait till your at least 2 -3 months late, if it still doesn’t happen go to a gynecologist to get checked out. Hope this helps!!!:)

  • Tatyana Soto May 21, 2013, 9:16 am

    Hi im 14 almost 15 years old & my period has never been regular suddenly it stopped. Last time I had my period was almost 7 months ago. What should I do?

  • Yang May 21, 2013, 5:01 am

    Hi Im 17 years old .i have an irregular menstration. but this is my first time took 3 months already and Im Worried… Im NOT pregnant Im sure of that. what should I do? should I see a Doctor already? My mom was worried too….. She told me that maybe JUST maybe I cant have a child? Is that true?

  • S May 21, 2013, 4:35 am

    I’m 28 years old. 5’3, 117 and my weight never fluctuates. I don’t exercise to much, but I eat fairly healthy. I have always had my period each month since I was 16. August of 2012 I had my last period about 9 mo ago. I know I am not pregnant, and after a few months of not having my period I decided to take birth control to see if it would regulate it and no use. My Doctor sent in a prescription that I believe would boost my hormone levels and said I should start my period when I finished it and it never came. In a way it has been nice not having to deal with my period every month but truth is I’m worried esp being the age I am. Can anyone give me any insight on what the problem might be? I’ve been told from a friend she didn’t have her’s for 6 months and then used Nuva Ring and it started hers back up, but thats also scary because there might be some underlying issue.

  • N May 18, 2013, 9:27 am

    Hi, I appreciate you taking the time o answer my question, I’m 31, have been on the pill for 11 years, off it for 6.5 months now with no periods whatsoever. Before going on the pill, I was regular. I’ve had blood tests, hormone levels are normal plus internal ultrasound, uterus and ovaries look normal. Why aren’t I ovulating, is there anything I can do??
    Many thanks,

    Thank you.

  • Flicka May 16, 2013, 4:48 am

    I’m 30, over the last decade I’ve been on and off the pill, for the last 5 years Yaz. Previously when coming off the pill I may have missed one period, but then been regular. I stopped taking Yaz when my period waS due before Christmas 2012. Since this period I haven’t had one – so I have missed the last five. SINCE MID 2012 i lost about 20lbs. Since Christmas I have lost a further 10lbs. I exercise quite a lot, am 5’6, 120lbs, muscly, thin. Blood tests indicate my hormones are ok, an ultrasound revealed nothing, an internal examination revealed about 11 small follicles, I’m not PCOS. Why am I not menstruating?

  • Cruz 015 May 15, 2013, 4:14 pm

  • Sania May 15, 2013, 5:30 am

    I was expecting my periods on 6th may, but i did not . I notice spotting/bleeding on 11th may and thought they were periods, but after changing two pads they stopped the same day. Then i take pregnancy test,ultrasound and blood test which says that i am not pregnant. I did not bleed then, was it was periods or spotting? please help. I normally have periods two-three days before the date.

  • joana May 14, 2013, 6:07 pm

    i also experienced that.. i havent get my period in 2months.. i thought i was pregnant..but it wasn’t because i have my period in a 3rd month already

  • Samara May 14, 2013, 7:26 am

    I’m almost 15 (Im a virgin) and I haven’t had my period for about 2 to 4 months. But all of the 10 reasons you listed dont apply to me. It just stopped out of the blue.

  • Ami May 13, 2013, 9:20 pm

    I haven’t had my period in almost 7 months now. I’m not pregnant. I’ve gained quite a bit of weight and just assumed it was stress or a lifestyle change that caused the weight gain. In 2010 I had a total of 3 menstrual cycles. In 2011 and most of 2012 I had regular cycles because I started Nuva-ring to regulate it (it gave me an almost perfect 30 day regular cycle). I had to stop because of financial reasons, and had two regular periods, then absolutely none. My partner has a vicectomy and I even double checked with a doctor in case of a miracle baby, but no; the weight I’ve gained is just me getting fat. What could be most likely be going on? I’m starting to worry.

  • keisha May 13, 2013, 11:09 am

    hi my name is keisha and have missed my period, it has been 3weeks seens my due date and i have not seen it. i have done 2 home preganacy test plus another 2 at the doctors office and they are all negative, what do u think is the issue here

  • Shell May 13, 2013, 8:39 am

    I’m 22 and I haven’t had a period scene Christmas. I had been on the pill from the age of 16 til I was 21. I had a very irregular and light period before going on the pill, I don’t think my body had the chance to regulate naturally, but as soon as I started the pill I was regular as clockwork. I came off it the end of last February, had spotting for about 14 days and then absolutely nothing until December. That was very light but I was just glad to finally have something! There’s been nothing scene then, not a drop or spot. I know I should go to the doctors but I’m scared of the worst, I hate needles and blood tests. My greatest fear is not being able to have kids :(

    • Shell May 13, 2013, 8:43 am

      Oh and it lasted about 14 days at Christmas btw if that helps

  • Soph May 13, 2013, 2:04 am

    I’ve bn married for over 9years and haven’t had a baby. I have a normal 25-26days cycle. Now, I’ve missed my period for 6weeks. I had a urine & blood test @ 10days, and it was negative. I’ve had cravings, crazy appetite, frequent urination, insomnia, low back pain and I feel heavy in my lower abd.
    I’m scared of going for another test. Could I be pregnant? I’m 34.

  • Kat May 12, 2013, 5:45 am

    Hello im 2 days late of my period. Literally ive been stressing a lot this month for various things. Im sexual active always used condoms thats spermicide.

My lower back is killing me for about two days now. What should i do. I was due may 10. And todays the 12.

  • Brie May 11, 2013, 11:30 pm

    Hi i’m turning 14 in september. i started my period when i was 12 and my periods have been regular up until january of this year i haven’t gotten my peiod since i started public school in january (i’d been going to onlineschool). Since i’m only 13 I am of course a virgin so pregnancy is not even a remote possiblility. i’m very scared though. i am due for a pap smear as soon as possible but i just want opinions even if it’s not from a doctor.

    • Emz May 13, 2013, 11:14 pm

      Hey! I’m also 14 and oh my word i’m the same position as you! Mine were regular until I went to public school after being homeschooled! Now my periods are all over the place, and i’m a virgin so no way am I pregnant! I think it’s just the stress factor of going to public school :)

  • Belinda May 9, 2013, 8:06 am

    I have just turned 16 last month and have not yet started bleeding at all. Reading all of the comments really makes me nervouis about it all starting and everything. I am very embarrased about it and have not told anybody AT ALL. ! If there is so many things that can go wrong I dno’t think that I want it all to start at all. My Dad buys me sanitary pads and says ” Maybe you can use these ! “, but I just have a great collection of them now in the bottom drawer. Not sure exactly what to do, don’t really want it but feel as if something needs to take place. Should I eat some sort of food or do some sort of excercise to get things started ?

  • Star May 9, 2013, 1:23 am

    Hi, I’m 21 yrs old. I got on birth control for the first time in November 2012.after I got on the shot I been getting my period regular. I was supposed to go for my second shot I think in January but never went because my boyfriend went to jail so there was no need to be on since I was no longer having sex.. in January I haven’t got on my period and it’s May and I still haven’t got it. Is that normal? What if I have cancer or something? I’m a bit scared but every body saying it’s stress.. I never had problems with my period until I got on birth control. But like I said, I got my period in November and December and January first.. please help me

  • oishiii May 8, 2013, 2:22 pm

    I’m only 12 yrs old. This is the 2nd month that I have no period.
    I think the reason is weight gain. So… Losing weight is the answer?

  • Jenna May 6, 2013, 6:01 pm

    Oh and I do get mild abdomen craps about twice a day. My back is always hurting and I get headaches every now and then. I also feel like something is moving in my stomach but maybe it’s just me. I’m not sure. It would be too soon to feel anything if I was pregnant.

  • Jenna May 6, 2013, 5:57 pm

    Hi I’m 20 yrs. with a 2 year old. I don’t know what I should do. I’m 3 weeks late, I took 3 HPT and they all came back negative. My last period was March 10 – March 16 I have normal period every 28-29 days. This is the first time I’m late since I had my daughter. I had a blood test done and the result was <1 (a) I don't know what this means the paper they gave me also says, "A sharply reduced or falling serum B-hCg level may indicate an abnormal pregnacy.." That got me nervous. I have been feeling nauseated and when I eat I don't get full it's like I can eat all day but I don't. Can you please recomend what I should do? or What might be wrong?

  • Chevrah April 28, 2013, 10:37 pm

  • Alloe April 28, 2013, 6:16 am

    Hi, im 21 years old my cycles have always been highly irregular, i am unable to have kids, i haven’t had a period in about 3 months or so….i have a lot of stress in my life, i eat really healthy but often not much. More recently i have been sick and that has severely screwed up my diet, and body as well, more than usual. I’m not bloating and my body may have the odd bit of spotting never for more than a few hours. I often miss periods for months at a time, i imagine that there are others with a similar problems. My advice is to go see your doctor if you are worried the best thing is to be as honest and open as possible tell them everything and be sure to communicate. Also, pregnancy tests should be taken 2 weeks after intercourse and generally your first pee of the morning, that’s the best way to get an accurate test. Blood tests are also worth looking into, there is nothing wrong with having a little background knowledge when going to see your doctor but self diagnosis will not help you overall in the long run. Doctors generally know what they are doing!

  • Andrea April 27, 2013, 1:14 pm

    I am 16 and I am 2weeks late on my period there is no signs of being pregnant and the last time I had sex was 4 weeks ago, I had my drama exam this week and I have been really really nervous about it before my period and now, I have nearly taken two panic attacks thats how scared I have been, is my period just late due to stress

    • Katie July 25, 2013, 4:06 pm

      I’m going through the same exact thing, almost the same exact time since i was supposed to have my period. Stress has been a big factor in my life for the past month, and I suffer from panic attacks too when I get too nervous. I know you posted this a while ago, but did you get yours soon after? How long did it take?

    • Brooke June 3, 2013, 8:27 pm

      Amber, this is happening to me too. Except I have 3 kids and had a tubal ligation in 2011. Have you had pregnancy symptoms??? I have, all urine tests are negative for me. My regular doc thinks I had the flu but thats not the case. I really believe I’m pregnant cause I have been pregnant 4x (first ones twins, one sac collapsed). I know my own body. Finally convinced gp of doing blood test and ultrasound to be sure. I’m worried about a tubal hopefully either way I or we will be ok. Let us know how it turned out for you. There are many ppl getting pregnant after tubal, the statistics are not correct.:(

  • Karissa April 23, 2013, 8:58 pm

    Hi, I’ll be 16 next month. I got my period August of 2009. They’ve always been pretty irregular. I would get my period one month, then not the next. Or I would get it several months in a row, but then it would skip for a few months. One time last year I even had it for like three weeks straight. Also, most of the time, it’s worryingly heavy. (to me anyways idk it might be normal) Like, I would put a brand new tampon in before I go to sleep and I would wake up and my pants/shorts and sheets would be soaked, and I would stand up and I could feel it leaking out of me. TMI?? Sorry. Just thought I would explain. Anyways, so like I said, they’re not really what I would call normal. I know it’s normal for a lot of girls/women to have irregular periods (esp. if you’ve just gotten it for the first time) although I’ve had it for 3+ years. But it’s starting to concern me. November and December of 2012, I got it on, or around, the 10th, so, naturally, I expected it to come around the same time in January, but it didnt. So now it’s April, and I haven’t gotten my period in 4 months. My mother had ovarian cancer, I believe, and she had her uterus removed for some reason (I don’t remember why??) and she ocasionally gets ovarian cysts. So clearly, she has had many issues, and she believes its going to happen to me as well, could this be possible? I just am stumped. :/ I’ve never gone this long without it. I’m not over weight, not am I underweight. I can’t figure out what could be causing this. Help me. Please.

    • Brooke June 3, 2013, 8:20 pm

      Karissa, you need to see a gynecologist asap. What your telling us about what’s happening to you and what has happened to your mother sounds like you need a thorough check just to be safe. Good luck, let us know what happens!!!

  • Brittany April 23, 2013, 3:02 pm

    I’m 16. I started my period when I was 13. I was supposed to start April 19th but I it’s April 23rd and I still haven’t. I’m a virgin but I’ve done sexual things. But a penis has never actually went inside of me. I just started having regular periods this September. This is the first time I’ve been more than a day late since then. I used to go months without having a period. I’m 5 feet tall and about 110 pounds. I’m not underweight or unhealthy. Does anyone know what could be wrong with me?? I’m not stressed either.

  • Dani April 22, 2013, 1:08 am

    Hey. I’m 17 and started my period when I was 12, and have never missed a period until now. My last period was from March 2 to March 6. I’m not pregnant, because I’m virgin, and the anti-depressant I’m taking doesn’t have anything about irregular menstrual cycles in the side effects. I’m supposed to have my period again the 27th. Should I wait until then to see if it comes, or go ahead and see a doctor?

    • Steph April 22, 2013, 6:20 am

      I’m having the same problem, I’m 17 years old and never missed a period but now I’m about 21 days late..is this a problem?

  • Olivia April 13, 2013, 9:36 pm

    Hi, I am 13 and started my period in January, got my period in February, but not in march or so far in April :/ I don’t know wether this is regular the first few months of having your period, but I am a little concerned. I also have some symptoms that I would get if I had gotten my period, for ex. Cramps and some headaches, is this normal?? I have been feeling stressed lately and depressed, but I don’t know wether this has to do with my period. I also run, and took a break over the winter and started again in march but I also ran in January once and I was fine. Hopefully someone has some answers thanks!!

    • Marissa April 19, 2013, 7:17 pm

      You are completely fine!!
      I started my period at age 11.
      Mine were irregular up until age 12.
      I then had them every 2nd week of each month.
      I’m 15 now, and I’m back to irregular periods.
      I’ve never engaged in sexual intercourse, therefore pregnancy is out of the equation.
      My last period was in November and still have not had it.
      All I can say is, be careful, and keep track of your periods!

  • alayna April 7, 2013, 9:50 am

    Hey I’m 19years old…and im a week late for my period ..I have always revived my period every 28 days never fails…ive taken home pregnancy test but negative my mom said we have a family history of not knowing till a blood test has been done i don’t like needles and I’m trying to a void them…I’ve had some symptom s of pregnancy but i was wondering if i was testing to early….

    • justsmile2o13 May 12, 2013, 5:09 am

      You can test using first response (which can tell your 5days before you miss your period) or clear blue (which can tell you on the day of your missed period).. Both brand’s are the most expensive HPT’s but defiantly best! Although, most HPT’s should be valid now if you’ve been missed by a week :) Failing that, get your doctor to do a urine test! – But if you are pregnant blood tests will be essential, I’m also terrified of needles but I got one for same reason. Ask for the butterfly needle and take someone with you to distract you, you’ll be fine!

      Good Luck x

    I am 23 year old and i have not done sex but i am not having my periods regularly . I last had them on 4th feb and its been 2 months now. there have been times when I had irregular periods. After my last period, I had fever , fatique and often under stress.. What could be the cause of this irregularity if I am not pregnant?

    • justsmile2o13 May 12, 2013, 5:06 am

      See a doctor, it could be anything, literally!

  • muriel April 5, 2013, 12:56 am

    before I had my son which was 4 years ago, I had very regular 30day cycles. After giving birth, my periods became irregular even after I stopped breastfeeding. Also from the pregnancy I continued to gain weight as many women might relate. I was 115lbs pre-baby and then gained 50 lbs over 4 years. Now I’m at 115lbs, age 30, and have not had any period since half a year ago. but i see many women much heavier than me having babies. so I’m confused. do I have PCOS? the doctor just told me to lose weight and has done no other tests nor does he plan to. I just need to know what’s going on as I would love to have another child in the near future.

    • justsmile2o13 May 12, 2013, 5:05 am

      PCOS is a sign, try and lose weight as they won’t do tests if your too overweight, then go back to doctor and demand he does tests, if he still doesn’t, see a different doctor for a second opinion.

      Good Luck x

    hi I’m 28 years of age.I’m kinda worried about my menstruation it’s a bit delayed. my last period was march 1 and its April 2 it’s been a month but i have not had sex with my husband or anyone.is it possible that i just have a problem on my menstruation or am i pregnant?

  • Sophie April 2, 2013, 2:23 am

    Im a 16 year old girl, 5ft 7, and average 8stone 2lbs. However it yoyo’s alot. I have preciously had trouble with an eating disorder but my periods have never been regular. I started when i was just 13 and was regular for threeish monts then stopped for seven. Then got 2 in a row then stopped for months and i got one, then a few more months got another one and its now been four months again. Basically im petrified. My mom took me to the doctors a few months back and they said they couldnt do antthing till i was 17 because it may take that long to settle but the bottom line is, im so scared and i dont know what to do. I understand my weight loss may have worsened tge situation but i still have a poor outlook on food & hate the thought of putting on weight because im not even skinny. I had a nightmare just now about putting on weight and i cant handle it! Im so confused and scared and i just dont know what to do!
    Any advice would be gratefully recieved!

  • ana April 1, 2013, 11:34 pm

      Are you sure you aren’t pregnant? Have your doctor give you a blood pregnancy test

  • Ea March 26, 2013, 1:50 am

    I’m in the late 40 years and have regular period. I missed my period for almost 20 days now since my last regular period. I have checked with my doctor and confirmed that I’m not pregnant. The question is that will I get pregnant during this period of unprotective sex.

  • jullie March 25, 2013, 4:04 pm

    I am in my mid thirties with three kids. I have always had normal periods. In 2010, I had an ependoctomy and lost almost 35 pounds but gained almost 40 pounds back in one year period. I got to the gym three days a week and consider myself to be a healthy eater ( I cant figure out why and how I GAINED ALL THAT WEIGHT… Im currently 170 pound ant 5″4 inches. This id the heaviest i have ever been.) In 2012, i missed three months fron July. It came in November then i missed it again in December and January only to get it for one day in February. I havent gotten any again. I have no signs of menopouse and I am not sexually active at the moment( not with my kids father and is not dating). No pain or cramps…… Oh! and my doctors told me that its am probably undegoing menopouse. But is this posible without any signs and symptoms at all?

    I’m 18 and have had my period for 9 years. I’m not pregnant, because I’ve had a normal period for the past few months and haven’t had intercourse since early January. I was supposed to get my period a few weeks ago and never did so I’m worried. I’ve been having pee-related problems lately and was thinking maybe it has something to do with that?

  • ariane March 10, 2013, 11:27 am

    Hello I am ariane, I was expecting that my period coming in march 1 but im wrong .. Now when I see in my panty color of pink brownish so I think my period come but its spotting. . I have contact to my husband after my period last feb 1 to 4 . its my first time doing this spotting bleeding .. Anyone can help me pls .. m thinking to much I dont know whats going on :(

  • cass March 6, 2013, 1:36 pm

    Im 18. My period is now 2 weeks “late”. Its normal for my period to be about a week late… i mean i usually get it the last week of the month or first week of the month. So i guess mine are like 35 days apart or something. This is my first time missing a period (if it doesnt come within the next week ill probably go to the doc). I havent had sex for about 3-4 months now. So i am completely ruling the possibility of pregnancy out. I have been a chronic drinker for months as well. I drank about 3-5 times a week. However, the past couple month Ive been seeing somebody. (we did not have sex). He got me to cool it on the drinking and trying to become healthier. So last week, when i expected my period, i differed from my normal routines and did not drink until the weekend. Does anyone have any idea why i may have missed my period? Changes in hormones maybe? Im not even that stressed out. Im doing bad in school and its frustrating however i wouldnt say that im soo stressed that i missed my period. Perhaps my body is just getting used to the change of not having as much alcohol in my system? Does that sound logical? Because thats what i was thinking…either that or i have problems with my uterus which would be the worst possible answer… Id appreciate it if someone can reassure me :(

  • Tiffany March 4, 2013, 10:50 pm

    Let get this started. Well first I had my first period when I was 9 or 10.Then I started getting period every month and so . After I turned 12 my period stopped! The last time I got it was January I think. I’m 100% sure that I am not pregnant because I know what would happen if I did. So now it march and my period still hasn’t come. Is this really bad to miss periods? I’m very nervous and scared that my body is not functioning correctly.I already have breast,armpit hair,pubic hair,and that it. Can anyone help me? If you do say that I have to take pills,well I’m not good at swallowing them. I want to see a doctor but I’m nervous. I have lost a few pounds. First I was 85-87 now I’m 80 pounds! What do I do? Help please!!~

I now have really really sore nipples, im grumpy, and tired all the time. Any idea why i got a negative pregnancy test on feb 28th? Why did my periods all of a sudden change. They are usually normal. And everything has been the same and normal. In my life so no stress. Please help!

  • Zitta February 25, 2013, 11:06 am

    Hi.. I read the comments and I’m pretty much in the same condition… I’m 18 and first got my period when I was about 14 and it was regular up until I moved to a different country when I was 16… I was a bit stressed cuz I just lost my mother and lost some weight when I moved. Is that enough of a reason for me to have missed it for almost 4 months? I had a blood test when I was 17 and there was nothing wrong. Should I go consult a doctor again? I’m really worried. And I’m not sexually active so I can’t possibly be pregnant…

  • Lottie February 24, 2013, 4:10 pm

  • sandhya February 24, 2013, 3:20 am

    I am 28 years old , soon to be 29 , i missed my periods for 2 months now, last i had it in 2012, was not tensed when i missed 1st month because was sure that it would happen next month but missed even feb, now i am tensed, went a doc she told me to get some test done scan and blood test , i am really not confortable getting this scan done as i have never got a scan done and dont know what happens and its a male doc who does it, and i am gainging weight because of this, i feel my tummy is bloated and it looks bad when i wear fitted clothes i dont know whether this is because of my missed periods so i am things should i wait for third month and then see a doc or should i see the doc immediately.

    • DP Nguyen February 22, 2013, 10:46 am

      If you haven’t had your period for three months, I would highly recommend that you go see a doctor or gynecologist. Sometimes, it might be because you are not ovulating for whatever reason. Go get it checked out.

  • Ashleigh Ro February 18, 2013, 4:01 pm

    hi every one, i am 24 year old virgin.. i have regular period for 10 years now and it was normal.. but early this year, i had my period on the 17th January, 2013 which i now and i believe i will be expecting in February, i waited but it never came and it is 19th February now and i dont see any sign… but i have masturbated on few ocassions and during those time i have normal regular period.. i worried cos i have not seen it for this month and i dont know if i should continue waiting or see a doctor.. cos i am worried and i know i am not pregnant cos i have not had sex before… maybe in the future… what do i do? i need an advice.. it is freaking me out or there is something wrong with me..? actually i am a week late.. i have never experienced that before.. am i normal?

    • DP Nguyen February 22, 2013, 11:13 am

      If its only a week late, don’t worry too much. Sometimes, women just have fluctuations or strangeness with their periods, due to stress, illness… But if you miss your period completely this month, I would go get it checked out by a doctor.

      • Ashleigh Ro March 5, 2013, 9:21 am

        Hi DP Nguyen, thank you so much for your advice , i really do appreciate the good work you are doing and may God bless you with all the knowledge to help us with our problem.. as i am talking with you now.. i just had my period yesterday on the 4th of March, 2013 even though i didnt see it in February at all but all the same i am very glad i saw it and i am as happy as i have never been… thank you for the advice.. keep doing the good work.
        i have realized that it is normal and i will not worry much if i ever encounter this problem but when it is out of hand i will right away go and see a doctor to prevent problems…
        thanks.. i hope other girls too have their problems solved.. Chaoo .. kisses

    I am 14 and I haven’t had my period since the start of November. I am still and virgin so, I know I am NOT pregnent. I don’t know if stress is causing my period not to come or if this a regular teenage thing. Is there something wrong with me…. I am really worried

    • DP Nguyen February 22, 2013, 11:19 am

      I think it’s a normal teenage thing. Try not to worry about it too much. Your hormones can sometimes flunctuate when you are a teenager and it’s usually nothing to worry about.

    Hello I’m 14 and I haven’t had my period in 3 months and I’m positive I’m not pregnant since I have never had sex. My biggest fear is being barren could this effect my future to have kids when I’m older? And what should I do.

    I’ve been having about 2 monster energy drinks every day for the past two weeks. Before that i was consuming about 10 in a course of 6 days. My period is late this month. Could the energy drinks have any effect on that?

  • kenz February 6, 2013, 6:11 pm

    my boyfriend and I fool around, my underwear stay on the whole time. when he cums its either on my chest, or on his. I would always clean up and wipe it off , I never noticed any near or on my underwear. I have yet to get my period , and am getting a little worried could I be pregnant or is it more likely because of stress, and working out/ losing weight that my period is off?

  • mary January 30, 2013, 12:09 am

    Hi, I have a questions? Normally I start my period this month and then not the coming month. For an example, I started my period on October then I don’t start on November until December the 20th. Well I started my period on October but it only comes little which I don’t know why because that not how it usually is, but then it did stop after seven days. But again, my period started again on November for seven day and toward the end of the month it stop. Since then I haven’t start my period after December. Normally I should be on my period right now on January. I should be on my period this month January already, but I haven’t and its almost February. Also I could still eat but when I took couple bit then I just don’t want it anymore. I don’t think I’m pregnant but also don’t know what’s the problem.

  • Samantha January 22, 2013, 8:51 pm

    I got my Implant in November of 2008. They told me that it was good for 3 years and then would run out. I would get my period about every 3-4 months, and I though it was normal because of the birth control. So it should be over November of 2012. I haven’t gotten my period since September. I’ve taken 2 pregnancy tests and they were negative. I don’t know what is going on or what to do. I keep having cramps and it feels like I have my period but I don’t get it. What should I do? Is there something natural I can eat(fruits or vegetables?)?

  • Diana January 21, 2013, 11:31 pm

  • Victoria January 17, 2013, 5:19 pm

    Hii , my boyfriend & i had sex on December 2nd , i ended my last period on November 30th. I was supposed to get my period around the 20th of December but i missed that one. We had sex again on December 22nd .. he came inside of me & there was no condom. Still haven’t gotten my period & i’ve been feeling really exhausted & moody lately. Do you think it’s just stress ? I’m 15 years old & my boyfriend is 15 as well. He said he’ll help with the baby if i am pregnant but i’m scared to find out. The first time we had sex i took a pregnancy test & it came out negative but the second time i didn’t .. please help ??? I don’t know what to do or who to talk to about this D;

    • Samantha January 22, 2013, 8:53 pm

      If you didn’t bother to use a condom your probably pregnant

    Hello, I am 29 and I was on ocp 5 months back. My first 2 cycles were bang on 28 days each and then one cycle was 38 days long. I am on 43rd day of my cycle and still no signs of AF. Sometimes i feel stomach cramps indicating that my periods are about to start but it disappears later on. I feel tired all the time and my breasts are sore to touch. Did several HPTs and all are negative. I am stressed as to what is going on in my body. Is there anyone experiencing similar problem?

  • Leigh January 11, 2013, 9:38 pm

    Hi all…so here is my situation. I am 25 and started my period when I was 12. It has always been irregular. It seemed like i was always bleeding. Lightly at least but i never truly had a perod unless i was on the pill which i took off and on from16-21. From 21-24 i still.had frequent periods but they were more regular. I started having regular 33.day cycles in July. November 10 was my last period. I have had negative home pregnancy tests and do not have a Dr or insurance. My husband and i have had regular sex.for the past 3 years and have.never used protection nor gotten pregnant. I had some light cramping and spotted one. I am always exhausted and have trouble to sleep any thoughts?

  • Megan January 10, 2013, 1:20 am

    Hi there. I’m 22 years old and my last period was november 9th 2012. It’s now January 10th. I’ve taken hpt and they were negative. I just had a baby August 19th 2012,stillborn. I had 2 normal periods (Oct,Nov).My fiance and I had sex December 1st,unprotected. I had been cramping before my period was due (the 9th) just like I always do,but low and behold it never came.Now I’m late for January’s as well. I’ve taken a pregnancy test at the doctors, negative as well. Symptoms -Sometimes my nipples feel sore, sometimes I think I feel a little queasy. I have had shooting pains in my left side, and now starting the last two days I’m having really bad pelvic pain, the same pelvic pain I experienced at the end of my pregnancy,I had a 9 pound baby. That’s the only time I’ve ever experienced that kind of pelvic pain. Not sure what’s going on.

  • Samantha January 8, 2013, 9:35 am

    Okay. I’m 22 and breastfeeding my second child. In November of 2012 my period was due the 15th but didn’t come until the 27th and it lasted for two weeks and it was heavy. I haven’t had my period since. I do not think I’m pregnant. I’ve been crampy like I’m going to get my period but, nothing happens. I have been under a lot of stress for the past two to three months and I know that stress can effect your period. Just wondering if I should be concerned about something serious being wrong, like cervical cancer.

  • anonymous January 2, 2013, 11:18 pm

    idk if anyone can help or not, but here it goes… i had a miscarriage feb 28, 2011 (the night i found out i was pregnant, i started miscarrying) I waited and waited for my period to come back and eventually after a long emotional 6 months, the doctor put me on a ten day dose of provera. i took that and had a period. It only consisted of like one day of bleeding and a little spotting, but the doctor said that was okay and they should come back normal. Well month after month went by and I spotted again for a day or two in June of 2012… it is now Jan 2013 and iv’e only had a period/spotting 2 times… that doesn’t seem healthy. i just want to know everything is okay and that i will still be able to have kids. i didn’t think i really cared to have my own kids until the day came and i lost one. now i’m worried i’ll never have my chance again… please help.

    Hi,am 19 and stil a virgin, i have never got my periods monthly, its usualy after 3 or 2 months but this tym its seven months now i didnt get my periods,what could be the problem?

  • anonymous December 26, 2012, 6:04 pm

    i’m 12 and started my period in august. everything was going normally until a couple of months ago (not exactly sure when) i missed one, then a few weeks after my period started again but it only happened for one day now i can’t remember the when my last period was but i know its been a while and i’m a little worried about it. I don’t know what to do because i don’t feel close enough to my mum to tell her about it. Any answers?

  • Katherine December 26, 2012, 2:00 am

    Okay, I’m 18, I’ve always had irregular periods, and I never thought it was weird because they were regular even though they were irregular (I mean, they came the same time, only every other month, and for 8-9 days). I started late (14) and I was truly just happy to have a period. I was on birth control (BC) because me and my boyfriend didn’t want to take any chances yet. We only used BC no condoms for a little over 6 months. I quit because I moved away from my primary gyno and I don’t have a new one yet, and upon quitting I have been less moody and mean, so I thought it was for the better and never got back on it. However, after quitting I quit having my period. Its been 5 months and no sign of a period. I attributed this to the change in hormones in my body due to the quitting of BC. We have not been using any other form of protection since then either. I thought perhaps I have PCOS? But not all of the symptoms apply to me, mostly the irregular periods. My mother had four children and her mother before that had four, so as far as I know infertility shouldn’t be an issue. I have taken MANY MANY tests all of which are negative, and I have no signs of pregnancy besides slight weight gain. For the past month or so I have had no job, and my sleep patterns are off, I stay up until I’m tired and sleep until I wake, no matter the hours I keep. I am not trying for a baby, but having one would be great, I am just curious as to why my period hasn’t come. I haven’t been stressed, the weight gain was slight (10-15 lbs over a 3 month time), and none of the stated reasons apply directly to me. I’m really wondering to know what I should do in this situation, besides go to the doctor (the obvious thing).

    • Karina January 8, 2013, 11:26 pm

      it took my cousin 6 months to get her period again she said ur body is just trying to get use to not having BC.. :) but every body reacts differently.. i have pcos n i havent had my period in 8 months.. im trying to figure out how to get pregnant. we have been trying for 4 months.. oh and something crazy i feel like im pregnant b/c something in my belly moves everytime i listen to music or whenever im around my Man. but everytime i take a pregnancy test its negative.. well since u know what pcos is you know the test might always come out negative :/ ugh! .. sorry for telling u all this i just needed to write it haha IM 19 so i feel like we can relate.. :) well n e ways good lucK!

    • Andreia December 26, 2012, 8:32 pm

  • Margarita December 23, 2012, 1:09 pm

    OK so I’ve always been pretty regular with my periods and the few times I had a scare it’s always been just that a scare. However I had my last period in September and it was normal it’s now December and I haven’t had any signs of it coming I am a little overweight so I’m thinking that’s my problem i’ve taken so many test that were negative I don’t want to waist my time or money to keep seeing that it’s negative what should I do?

      At your age it’s normal to miss a period unless you’re sexually active and if you are you should really talk to your parents

  • Tumi December 21, 2012, 12:31 pm

    I started my periods @ 14yrs, 4yrs later I missed a period & the test was (-)ve. A month later my periods came back till now 4yrs later again the same thing that happened to me 4yrs ago is happening to me the second time. What is different with this one is that this is my 2nd month since I haven’t seen my periods. The last time I was sexually active was 3 months ago in September the 1st & had my periods the same month & October, but haven’t seen them again since last month till now. My last period was 18 September & and still waiting. I’ve had 2 pergnancy tests done @ home this month & they both came out (-)ve. Ithinking of going to my GP nxt month should my periods not return. Worried.

    Hi all,
    I need help!
    I read trough lot of comments but unfortunately no one has posted updates so please confirm what I need to do. Here is my case:
    1) I ALWAYS get my periods on time. Never missed one so far.
    2) I missed my period this month.Its been 17 days.
    3) We are trying to conceive since 1 yr and so I thought I am pregnant!
    4) I do have symptoms (nausea, weakness, usual pain etc)
    5) But, I have taken 2 dozen home test so far and all negative!
    6) Went to 2 doctors, did a blood test, negative
    7) did a ultrasound last week, nothing.
    8) My doctor is not clear what I should do. She is as confused as me. She isnt clear why i missed period.
    9) I am confused – please help!

    • Molly December 20, 2012, 10:15 pm

      Forgot to add, I am 30 yrs old and have no stress issue and thyroids are functioning normal and have not gained/lost weight.

      • Andreia December 26, 2012, 8:46 pm

        Hey Molly,
        I know how frustrating this is for you I’m sorry.
        I also am 6 days late (not as much as you) but frustrated enough that. I’m very regular. I have a cycle of 29 days and this month (12/20) should have arrived and it didn’t. I have done multiple hpt and one pregnancy test all came negative.
        My Ob-Gyn asked me to wait 2 more weeks before i repeat the blood test. She also explained that there’s 2 kinds of blood pregnancy tests. One that counts the HCG in your body and the other is as good as a urine (only states yes or no) An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy. No matter what blood or urine test you do. So, I’m crossing my fingers and hoping you get good news soon so I can have some sorta of hope for us as well. Good LUCK!!!

        P.S.- Keep me posted.
        Thank you.

        • Molly January 9, 2013, 10:21 pm

          Andreia, Thanks for the reply!

  • DanieB December 20, 2012, 7:56 am

    im 18 years old, sophomore in college, i have a great boyfriend. im still a virgin. i’ve missed 2 periods and im starting to worry. there have been times where i’ve missed 1 period but not at all this year. i usually only miss 1 a year so when i missed my period in November i wasnt too worried but now that i’ve missed my period for december im srarting to worry. a pregnancy test wouldnt do me any good because im still a virgin. i was a little stressed out at theh beginning of the month because of final exams…but exams are over and i still havent come on my period. I spotted a little 2 days ago but nothing more…and i dont even get cramps anymore…im really, really worried and im starting to stress out about this…

  • grace December 18, 2012, 9:16 pm

    I have previously missed 3 periods. I know now that they were from stress. But I am only 16, and I have varicose veins! They appeared shortly after missing my periods, what happens inside your body when you miss one? Does your body just not produce anything, or where does it go, could this cause varicose veins at all?

  • Tammy December 15, 2012, 10:04 am

    My periods were regular untill last month when my BF fingered me for the first time, I am still a Virgin…but for the first time I have’nt got me periods on time. They are already a week late and stressing me alot…did get some cramps though when they were due but no bleeding… what do i do??? :-(

    • Julia December 20, 2012, 12:46 am

      No, you can’t, 99.9% sure. If you read through this entire page, you’ll notice how many women are just weird when it comes to getting their period – and how freaking out about it never seems to help.

      • Julia December 20, 2012, 12:48 am

        That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go to the doctor and see if there is something else going on.

      • Joy January 7, 2013, 9:25 am

        How I wish people will post what happened to them after they checked with the doctor. I am experiencing the same thing. I have 2 missed periods but had several HPT that came out negative. I am planning to go to an OB tomorrow to get an u/s or at least see what she has to say about it.

  • awim December 7, 2012, 9:53 pm

    I’m 19 years old and I haven’t had my period in about 2 months. My last one was about October 9th, I think. My periods are usually a month and a few days to a week apart so I should’ve gotten it around November 12th-16th but I didn’t. However, my body did go through the motions of starting, as in I began to have a bit of discharge (as I usually do before a before a period), I really felt like I was going to get my period but nothing. Until now, I haven’t gotten my period. However, last week my nipples were sensitive (as they sometimes are before my period). I’m worried I won’t get my period and I can’t afford to see a doctor. This is stressing me out and worrying me a lot.

      I forgot to add that I am still a virgin so I am definitely not pregnant

        I’m in the same boat, just that I’m 15 years older than you, but not sexually active, so I know I’m not pregnant, but way too young for pre-menopause. My period was fairly regular, heavy and long. Suddenly, it decided to come only once in the past 4 months. I am not worried though, my blood work came out flawless, thyroid functioning fine. I am slightly underweight for CDC standards, but I have a very healthy diet and no eating disorder. It is true that I haven’t yet consulted with a gynecologist, but I doubt she’d find anything out of the ordinary. I have been feeling fine, save some very mild pre-menstrual symptoms, such as tenderness or bloating of the abdomen, vague cramps and fatigue, but these may be caused by some garden variety occasional indigestion.

        Bottom line – go to a doctor if you have serious concerns.
        If you are sexually active – do 3 pregnancy tests (first urine in the morning is best because it has the highest hormone concentration).
        If you are premenopausal – get your hormones checked.
        If you have any persistent and unusual (unusual to you) symptoms – feeling bloated, unusual discharge, pain on one side or both sides of the pelvis, get checked promptly.If you think you have an STD – get tested and treated.
        If you’re under a lot of stress – buy some scented candles and lavender bath salts.

        If you’re still fretting, get your blood panel done and hormone levels checked.

        Otherwise: calm down, eat healthy, have a spoonful of omega-3 a day, eat your veggies, exercise 20 min a day and hang out with your friends regularly – not in virtual space, but in a bar or a park.

        Good luck to all!

  • J December 6, 2012, 1:41 am


    I’m 16 and I’ve had my period for about 4 years now. When I first had my period (for the first 1 1/2 – 2 years) it was a little irregular but it has seemed to settle down. My period has always been long; it usually lasts about 7 days and then has a gap of about 21-28 days before the next one starts. Last month it was normal but the month before that it was delayed by 10 days (the gap was 38 days). This month’s period is now 5 days late (gap of 33 days… and counting).

    I’m still a virgin so pregnancy is out. I finished my exams about a month ago so I’m not overly stressed (except for wondering what is going on with my period). I’m 170cm and around 65kg, so I’m not overweight. I don’t over-exercise (if anything, I don’t exercise enough) and I’m not on any contraception or medications.

    Over the past week (or almost a week), I’ve had the worst case of PMS that I’ve ever had. It usually doesn’t affect me much, but for the past few days I’ve been easily upset and have had the occasional cramp. I’m starting to get really worried. What’s going on?

  • susana morales December 5, 2012, 3:05 pm

  • kuku December 4, 2012, 3:44 pm

    There is another thing that i forgot to tell. This month I came from Asia to Europa to study, and I was under a lot of pressure, and I am not even used to this cold weather. Can stress make my period get delayed? I am panicking right now. I feel like I am period, but I am not bleeding, and everyone tells me that if I feel like period, and not bleeding, it means pregnancy !!!!

  • kuku December 4, 2012, 3:38 pm

    I lost my virginity about 3 weeks ago with my boyfriend. I was panicked and it was painful for me. I even could not lost my virginity at first time, and it took 10 days for me to loose my virginity ( we tried 3 times in 10 days). He used condoms and before he got orgasm , he took out his thing. I should have my period last week, but I am not period. Am I pregnant? I do not know how!!! but my period was always regular. Is that because I was panic in my first experiences, that now affects my period? I am stressing out. please help me. lol

  • Ad December 3, 2012, 11:12 pm

    Im 16 years old . Im usually irregular . My period is 7 weeks late . I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative . My period has never been this late . I dont lnow why i havent gotten my period . Is something wrong ?

  • rebecca December 3, 2012, 11:14 am

    I haven’t had a period since may/june/july (I can’t remember) and now it is December. This is the longest break I’ve ever had. I’m definitely not pregnant. My period’s always been a bit irregular. When I started out (around 13 or 14) it would never stop and was very heavy. I became very anemic. I went to the doctor and they put me on birth control, which worked fine, but they never figured out the cause. When they took me off the pill, my period wouldn’t start. So they put me back on it for a while and everything was regular again. The next time they took me back off, my period came about 4 times a year, although somewhat unpredictable. Now it has been around 5 months. Should I start to worry now? What could be the cause of this?

  • rubi December 2, 2012, 1:22 pm

    Hi im 17 years old and i havent had my period in 2 months, i took a home pregnacy test and it said i was not pregnant, but i do have the symtoms and feel that i might be pregnant , i dont feel stress or anything, but why havent i got my period if im not pregnant??

  • Shanae December 2, 2012, 8:09 am

    Hi. Ok so I haven’t had a period since oct 20 (only last for 3days) and I am now 12 days late now I went to the clinic when I was about 5 days late and test came back negative I had blood test done on other things “thyroid etc” the all came back good. I was on depo from 14-21 and haven’t been on since ill be 30 on Thursday is this a possible sign of pregnancy?? I have been having weird symptoms constipation fatigue wanting to eat more white milky discharge. Please help should I take another test? Or is it just in my head?

  • Jamie November 30, 2012, 8:16 pm

    Hi. I am wondering if this is normal.. My son is 15 months old and I have not had a period yet. I stopped breast feeding when he was 3 months old. So it’s been missing for about a year. For some reason if I squeeze my nipples just to check, a small amount of milk is still there. That is also weird to me because I think it should all be gone by now. Could that be the reason for my period not returning??

  • Gemini9637 November 29, 2012, 5:38 pm

    Wow, I’m sorry yet releived to know I’m not the only one going through menstural changes. I’m 28 with a 10/yr old child. I recently found out the man I fell in love with and have been sexually active with without protection is married. Although the pull out method is not safe, this was our methond, and we did not have any slip ups. My cycles are typically normal on average 26-28/days. I’m now 6/days late, my breast are very swore, and I’m exceptionally moody. Took 3/pregnancy test and they were all negative, I’m lost…

  • lyn24 November 29, 2012, 2:50 pm

    Hey there…. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME OUT… :(

    I am 17 years old and i had intercourse at november 6. I had my period oct 19 last moth.
    We used durex condoms and at the same time withdrawal method.

    I am currently 6-10 days late for my period. We had been together for a year now and we never had penetration before only this month again.. and this month i didn’t get myperiod…

    I am really paranoid.. i took a test on nov 27 and got a negative result.. no pregnancy symptoms also… but why don’t i have my period yet?

    Also i really need to add that my cervical position currently is somewhat soft but was hard 2 days ago. And mucus was also blobby and stretcht watery too… but now my cervix is a bit softer and mucus is more watery and also stretchy slear and a little bit whitw in color…

    Maybe becuase i was drinking a lot of water?

    Please help me :(

    If i got a single negative test 6-10 days after a missed period… am i still pregnant?

    I shall be testing again.but i wont be paying anything until i get a good advice other than that…

    I do hope that i just ovulated late though :(

  • ANAPP November 28, 2012, 4:13 pm

    Hi, im 20 years old and here is my story..
    I first had my period when i was 14 years old. It has never been late and has always been on a Monday on the last week of every month. Well this year i started Birth control in june. Then my periods came on a Tuesday on the last week of every month and lasted about 5 to 6 days. I live with my boyfriend and we both are sexually active. In October of this year i noticed some spotting in the beginning of the month which was very weird considering my periods have always been regular and i have never spotted before. Well this lasted for 3 weeks. I ended up taking a home pregnancy test and it was positive so i stopped taking the birth control and went to the pregnancy resource center to confirm the results. They gave me 2 pregnancy tests by urine and they both were negative. It shocked me and my boyfriends mom considering i just had a positive home pregnancy test the week before after i stopped spotting. well still no period in November but i noticed sharp pains on the left side of my lower abdomin so i went to the emergency room thinking i had a cyst or i was having a tubular pregnancy. The doctor said i was neither pregnant or had a cyst. Here it is a week before my 21st birthday.. The day im supposed to get my period and nothing. . I have not had a normal period since the last week of September and no one knows whats wrong with me. ive had 4 negative professional pregnancy tests and 1 positive pregnancy tests. I have the symptoms of pregnancy and no period.. I dont know whats wrong with me.. Can anyone help or has been through this give me advice?? im scared… :(

  • Liz November 26, 2012, 6:04 pm

    i was having normal periods for the last 2 years i had been on birth control for one and then lost the ability to get them…they came and went with some normalacy though….now i have not been on BC for sometime and my last period was in july of 2012….i have not bleed or spotted since and i have taken 4 pregnancy tests and all are negitive….i get pain to the point of dubbling over in the vacinity of my left overy and my new insurance wont kick in till january of 2013….does anyone have any ideas on what i can do in the mean time…..i am really worried and scared.

    • DP Nguyen November 27, 2012, 9:55 pm

      Although you don’t have health insurance, I would highly recommend you try to go see a doctor. Perhaps they have a walk-in clinic near your home. Call around and get a non-insurance price for a visit. You definitely want to get checked out as soon as you can!!!

  • Shell November 25, 2012, 12:57 pm

    I need some advice, I haven’t had a period since 15th sept my husband and i are trying to conceive and already have a 4 year old boy. I am a healthy 28 year old women technically a stone overweight but not obese. I have done ovulation test and we had sex twice now when i ovulated in past 2 months (i used ovulation tests). I have done about 6 pregnancy tests and they all say negative. My question is why do i not have a period and why am i not pregnant yet? We have been trying for 7 months and i have been off the pill since april.
    It’s really getting me down now,i need a period to be able to date my cycle I have had 4 periods since i came off the pill but none have been regular. Should i see my doctor or will they send me away?

    • DP Nguyen November 27, 2012, 10:00 pm

      You need to go see a doctor right away. If you are not pregnant, and you have missed three months of periods in a row, go see a doctor to figure out what could be causing your missed periods! It could be any number of health concerns, but if you are trying to conceive, then you will need some medical guidance. Good luck!

  • Anonymous November 25, 2012, 4:48 am

    Hello, I really appreciate this webpage and information as it has calmed me down quite a bit, although I’m still curious to know what you might think of my situation:
    I am 16 and have had menstrual bleeding since I was 12, I’ve always been fairly irregular and usually get my period a few days after I should be due. However, I’m having a huge delay here.
    In early September I got my period as usual, then about a week or so later I had sex (I know, I’m only young… but my boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years so we thought getting a bit more intimate this year would be okay). The next month came around, October, and I got my period on time with normal colouring, normal flow and for the usual 6 days. All was well. November came, and instead of getting my period I got a week of diarrhea followed by a week of constipation. I went to the doctor about this and he diagnosed it as a stomach bug, but told me to come back if it continued. It did thankfully stop after the 2 weeks. I was worried about pregnancy even though I had my period as normal in October, because I knew that constipation can be an early symptom in addition to my period being late. (We’re at about November 17, my period was due around November 3) I picked up a pregnancy test from the chemist and tested myself, which showed up as negative. I was really relieved about this. However it’s now November 25 and I still haven’t got my period for this month, and just today (After at least 7 days of normal bowels) I’ve experienced some more diarrhea. I’m not at all sure what’s wrong with me. Before November came I was exercising more often and eating a lot less. I also took some medication when I had diarrhea originally and the fact that my period is late has been eating away at the back of my mind, causing me to be anxious. Could all these factors be contributing to my late period? Please let me know what you think, I would be so grateful!

    • DP Nguyen November 27, 2012, 10:02 pm

      Since you’ve had a lot of medical problems (i.e. the constipation, diarrhea, and stomach bug), this can definitely take a toll on your period. It’s pretty common for illness to throw your period off. You are NOT pregnant if YOU’ve Had a Period since the last time you had sex. Keep testing for pregnancy, if you are worried though. But I think it may just be the illness (which sounds like is still an ongoing issue) that is causing your delayed period. If you are still worried, please contact your doctor!

      • Anonymous November 28, 2012, 6:32 am

        Thank you so, so very much for the reply! That’s exactly what I wanted to know – if it’s possible for illness to disrupt your menstrual cycle. Also that’s what I thought, that if you’ve had your period since you’ve had sex you can’t be pregnant (Because in having your period it means that no fertilization took place, correct?) and I did have my period in October, after I’d had sex in September. Some people have said otherwise though, so it got me worried. I’m assuming I should be okay now and I’m just going to let my body do it’s own thing for a while, hopefully my period will return next month. I feel better, thank you again!

  • rojoni November 23, 2012, 12:21 pm

    hey, i am 22 now,my period was always on time, but suddenly this month my period is missing,it’s been 20 days late form the date! i want to give you some of my details… i am 5’5” in height & 99 kg weight, i didn’t get the weight suddenly, this is my regular weight since last 3-4 years… moreover, i burned with coffee last month & i took antibiotic named MOXACLAV (amoxicillin 875 mg, clavulanic acid 125 mg)for almost 1 month!

    Now, as this missing period matter doesn’t occur with me, now i am very tensed, plz give me a suggestion!

    • DP Nguyen November 24, 2012, 6:23 pm

      Sometimes, being sick and medications can affect your cycle, but being 20 days late is a pretty substantial delay. I would take a home pregnancy test, and if that’s negative, then go talk to a doctor about what might be causing your missed period. Good luck!

      • rojoni November 28, 2012, 12:15 pm

        thanks a lot… no pregnancy in my case was impossible dear, because I am still virgin! never had a boy friend & not married too! but now i have taken BLACK CUMIN OIL with warm water, u can’t believe that it just worked perfectly! :) as you are giving suggestion, so i thought i must tell you about that! it really works… & thanks for your feed back! :)

  • Courtney November 21, 2012, 10:15 am

    HI, I’m 16 i started my period when i was about 12, i used to get them about every 5-6 but i eventually got them every 4 weeks maybe a couple of days out. I havent had a period in about 6 weeks, but the last time i had sex was in july and we used protection i’ve had a period every month since. Please help and tell me what i should do :)

    • DP Nguyen November 24, 2012, 6:26 pm

      If you’ve had a period since the last time you had sex, then you aren’t pregnant. Since you are still a teenager, it’s possible that your periods are still evening out and finding their rhythm. If you don’t have a period 3 months in a row, contact your doctor.

  • Amanda F November 21, 2012, 6:46 am

    Hi I am 34yrs and I have had 3 children when my 3rd was delivered with a C section I had my tubes cut and part removed so this was 8yrs ago I am now 2 weeks over due with my period and have been like clock work my whole life. I have also just had a papsmear done which has come back saying I have abnormal cells. I have been thru this before as I had CIN2 when I was 16yrs old but my period was normal then could this be interfering with my period, I have also put on a lot of weight in the last 4ths as I had my lapband removed as it failed after 3yrs
    My doctor wants to test my hormones and has asked me to have a blood test on my 5th day of my period but that’s a bit hard when I am late. my health has been bad most of my life I have lupus and antiphospholipid syndrome had a small stroke at aged 28 but I have always had my period so I am feeling really worried to why they have not started is there anyone out there that read this that is a gyno that can help.
    Kind Regard

    Hello, I was wondering if you could help me at all.. me and my husband have been actively trying for a child for over 5 years (I am only 22) but I have never been sucessful since a miscarriage when i was 16. However I have undergone tests etc and nothing has ever happened, July 2012 was the last time I had a period and it is begining to become worrying as I have always been very regular. (every 28 days) I today have had a test to check for polystic ovaries with no such luck.. Its been months since my last period and it is unconciously making me worry.. Do you have any idea??

    please reply via email if you could

      It’s possible but highly unlikely that you got pregnant, but you could always take a home pregnancy test if you are worried.

    • DP Nguyen November 24, 2012, 6:38 pm

      Take a home pregnancy test if you are worried. It’s also possible that it could be caused by stress, medications, weight gain, illness, any kinds of things. I wouldn’t worry unless you do not see your period after a month.

  • Elizabeth November 18, 2012, 4:40 am

      Take a home pregnancy test to double check to make sure you are not pregnant.

    I’m 15 and I’ve had a normal cycle for about 2 years until now. I had sex the beginning of October, for the first time, the day after my period ended. I was supposed to get it again at the end of october, beginning of november and still nothing. I have tooken a pregnancy test and it came out negative. I have never been so stressed in my life. I never previously have gotten cramps when on my period, but recently I have been getting a few slight cramps here and there. I know I’m only 16 days late, but I’ve never been late before so I’m not sure what’s really going on.

    • DP Nguyen November 24, 2012, 6:42 pm

      Go see a doctor and take a blood pregnancy test. But it’s also possible that your stress may be delaying your period as well.

    I went for a whole year without my period after stopping bc. I finally got it after taking a flax seed oil pill for the swelling of a spider bite. Thats how I found out i have poly cystic ovarian syndrome. The doctor told me if I lost weight I might start getting it on my own again and that I didn’t have to have my period every month but at least every three months.

  • Nikkita November 9, 2012, 3:22 am

    I am 18 years old and before you ask, “yes, I am still a virgin.” I’ve always had a slightly irregular period, ever since I started at 12 yrs old. Not “off-the-wall” irregular (for ex. a friend of mine had 4 periods a year, every 3 months), but I’ve never been the girl who can calculate her very next period down to the day. When I first started my period, it was normal for a couple of months and then it skipped two months in a row, after this period ended, it only took 3 weeks for me to start again, and after that 2 weeks. My period eventually became a little more regular, but now it has been almost 12 weeks since my last period ended. (Like I said, I am a virgin. No sexual contact of any kind, so it’s not any type of “misfire” pregnancy.) I can’t imagine what is wrong. I have gained some weight, but enough to worry about (I’ve always been a chunkier girl, so this weight is hardly noticeable and has had no real effect on me). I also haven’t been under any real stress. I did just start attending college at the end of august (coincidentally, that was the week of my last period) and although I’ll admit to certain moments of stress, they are mostly moments of “oh, crap I have to finish my homework” but nothing too troubling. I’m a little nervous for my health and any possible insight might just ease my worrying, so please feel free to reply. I’d really appreciate it.

    First off a little about me, 28 yr old, i have two beautiful babes 2Year… trying to concieve #3. But its seemingly impossible! Since Dec of last year, ttc, missing periods, having low hcg turning to mc. So finally I go back on the pill, Sept 28 was my start day for period and pill – the 21 day one nothing else. I knew I wasnt going to get my period right away after starting the pill, but ive been waiting now for 2 weeks and 1 day… OR do I go by what my regular periods are like at 33 days apart (or somewhere below that– never above!) bc if that was the case too then I would be 3 days late– ive taken hpt and both came back BFN– one at 1 week after i was done the pill (day 28) and now at 2 weeks +1 (day 36) both negative tests… nothing in my life has changed, im overweight yes but ive also concieved at being overweight before so i cant see why that would be a factor now and it wasnt before.. Just need some guidance and answers.. hope to hear soon!

    I had a question. My last period started on a Thursday, so I started birth control the following Sunday. I took it that Sunday and Monday, but did not take it anymore because I thought it was making me feel weird. 6 days later I had what I guess was spotting, and it lasted 2-3 days. My period was supposed to come 6 days ago (Oct 31), and hasn’t yet, although starting three days ago I started getting brown/slightly pink discharge.

    Could those two birth control pills have thrown off my cycle bad enough to delay my period?
    I’ve also been very stressed with school, by the way.
    When should I expect my next cycle? 28-30 days after the spotting began maybe?
    Also, my period has been a full 7-9 days late before, back in august, I was really stressed, so its not like this is a new situation… sadly. lol
    I am sexually active, but we use condoms (not at the beginning though). Pre-come?
    Also, If you think I’m pregnant, please don’t say so! I’ll find out sooner or later, but I don’t need that revelation now.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey. Okay so my last period either started on September 15 or the 18th. I have not had my period yet to date, it is now November 5. I haven’t been stressed lately and I have my period every month. It is about a 32 day window between periods though. I am experiencing some pregnancy symptoms like fatigue, nausea (in the morning), smells are super strong. Same things as when I was pregnant before. But I took a HPT and it said negative. The latest one was on October 30. I can’t think of anything that would cause me to be this late in my period and NOT be pregnant. Is it possible that I could be pregnant and it just isn’t showing up on the HPT? I am also worried that I was pregnant and miscarried, but I have had no bleeding. Which makes me think that I would need a D&C and that is why I haven’t had a period. Oh and we had a condom break around that time… Please HELP!!!

    I’m 14 years old. I lost my virginity during late September. I had just come off my period before I had sex for the first time. We had sex that month quite a few times but we made sure it was protected and safe. My last period was on the 10th September. My due date for my next period according to my menstrual calendar says I should have come on on the 8th October. That was 28 days ago now. I went straight to my local youth centre a couple of weeks after I noticed my period was absent to get a pregnancy test. I had one on the day I went and then I had another one the day after. They both showed up negative so thankfully I wasn’t pregnant. I’ve still not come on my period though so I’m beginning to get rather worried. I haven’t been stressed and my period is usually on time every month. Could the sex have anything to do with my missed period?

    I was on birth control for about 5 years I took it off September 17 and it my period on the 21 then in October my period was two weeks late but it wasn’t a normal period it was very light spotting for only 3 days. I have taken 5 home pregnancy tests and thy are all negative. What should I do?

  • Lisa November 4, 2012, 5:54 pm

    I’m 19 and I missed my period but I have never had sex. I am on Trileptal and Zoloft, but have been on them since I was 13 and never noticed anything strange – point of fact my periods have been every 21 days like a clockwork since I started my period when I was in 7th grade. I haven’t been more stressed out than normal, nor have I gained or lost a lot of weight, I’m not taking birth control (though I will start soon, because when my period is doing it’s thing I have excessively painful cramping).

    In any case I have no idea what is wrong with me.

    I’m 32, I’m on a 30 day cycle. I come on September 22ND and haven’t been on since but I did wipe on November 1st n I saw a pink spot (very light) on the tissue. I have a lot of lower back pain. My stomach does not hurt yet I stay with that feeling as of I am about to come on. I have Headaches almost everyday. I also feel wetness all day and keep running to the bathroom to see if it came. Nothing! I took 2 Hpt a few days ago and it’s negAtive. What could be wrong.I’ve only had one successful pregnancy when I was 22. Thought I couldn’t have kids after that because I haven’t been pregnant since.:(

    • Joy November 4, 2012, 7:28 am

      Oh n I’ve been tired a lot and dizzy to the point I feel like I’m going to fall. When I missed meals lately….I actually feel real sick. Before I would forget I was hungry.

      • Ashlee November 9, 2012, 4:30 pm

        I still havent had my period yet either and it seems we both missed october!! hate this waiting game! 4 hpt and all negative, headaches, feeling “full” in my belly, not really have an appetite.. nauseaus.. everything points to either period or pregnancy— and so far nothing has shown up!!!

  • Sarah November 3, 2012, 3:19 am

    sorry, I mean cramps plus some very slight shiver+fever kind of stuff, that none “really” exists

  • Sarah November 3, 2012, 3:15 am

    I’m not preg., yet I haven’t had the “event” for two weeks, now, I get some very slight crams once in a while though nothing happens. I came up to this page since I felt like “vomiting” for a while right now, nothing happened, of course. but its totally a new scary feeling I have never experienced before
    p.s. yes, this month and within the previous month I had great stress in life

    I have been having unprotected sex with my boyfriend for 2 months now been off birth control for about a month and a half (hes never fully cum inside me) my last period was sept 26th i was supposed to get it the 24th of this month and its never more than 2 days late when im stressed. I am currently 8 days late…home pregnancy tests said negative and so did a blood test that was taken a few days ago. Doctor said maybe a thyroid issue but my thyroid came back normal as well…Could i still be pregnant and just tested too early? When should i test again?

  • Jenny November 1, 2012, 4:02 am

    I had unprotected sex before my priod 2 days and after my period 2 days..
    I was so worried that i might get pregnant, but however my period came again in the same month after 2 weeks of the first cycle of my period. I was wondering in this case am I pregnant? And for the next month will my period be accurate? or will change ( as in will the date of me period be the same or the will be changed) Thank You
