My last period was on the 25th of Aug. Had sex with my husband on the 15th 16th and 17th and again on the 21st of September. My period was due yesterday on the 22nd but it hasn't come yet. I have period pains and very emotional but no periods. Please help.

Hi Anon -

Having sex a few days before your period would not affect when it arrives. Periods can come late for a variety of reasons, including stress. Feeling emotional just before it starts is pretty common. Hopefully you can find some ways to relax and reduce your stress, and before you know it your period will arrive and give you more peace of mind.
