I am 18 years old and I recently started to be sexually active about 3 months ago .. I never really tracked my period until I began having sex .. and now I think my period is late .. my last period started on may 4th 2011 .. I have been somewhat stressed out these last few months in my life .. I was just wondering is this normal to have a late period sometimes ? And, do you recommend taking a pregnancy test?

Hi Bunnieyboo,

Did you have unprotected sex in the last month? If so, you may want to take a pregnancy test to verify whether you could be pregnant or not. Since it is June 7th today, a pregnancy test would pick up on the HCG hormone and you'll have an answer. If it is negative, then your late period is likely attributed to the stress you've had lately.

Good Luck,
