why is it that my period is late?
i had been waiting for weeks now. it bothers me that i had not experience intercourse ever. we did only fingering and dry humping. also, it startles me that we had been doing this for months. he assured me he's always clean. am i in trouble?

Hi Anonymous,

Your period can be late for many reasons-- the most common being stress. Quick weight loss/weight gain, illness, and medications can also cause a late period. Dry humping and fingering will NOT cause pregnancy. If you would like to ease your mind and take a pregnancy test, please do so. If you miss your period again next month, please schedule an appointment with your doctor.

All the best,

Rosa

i dont know when my period is. i am irregular so i dont really know the exact date. i can only estimate i think. but its always earlier or a week or more late whenever i do. :l

should i see a doctor to see if im pregnant? i also doubt i am, but the fact that its still not here makes be unsure.. i just want to know if im worrying for nothing and if there's other reason that greatly affected my period besides pregnancy..

Hi Anon,

You don't have to schedule an appointment with your doctor to find out if you may be pregnant. You cannot get pregnant through fingering or dry humping. If you are a teen and you have irregular periods, then this is common and it can take a couple of years for your period to become regular. http://kidshealth.org/teen/your_body/body_basics/female_repro.html#a_Menstruation

Best,

im sorry for asking too much. even my bf says i have nothing to worry about.. but there's still a part of me that is bothered. maybe its this no show period that's bugging me. i mean, i dont want to take PT because i also doubt that our foreplay would get me pregnant. Could it be that the stress from this pregnancy thing, some schoolworks-stress and depression be responsible for my no show period? and also, could this severe cold i have (feeling a bit better now though) interfere with my cycle?
