Women's cycles can change month-to-month, and this is normal.

If you are worried about being pregnant, you can take a home pregnancy test once you've missed your expected period.

What is more important to know than the exact calendar date ("26th of the month") is to know how long your cycles are, as our cycles are not always going to coincide with the date on the calendar. Women's cycles can range from 21-35 days in length, whereas a calendar month has either 28, 30 or 31 days...so just simple math you can see that eventually your period would start on a different calendar date.

To know your menstrual cycle length for future: if your last menstrual period (LMP) began on September 26th ("day 1"), and today is November 29th, then today would be your "day 35" in your cycle. It is a good time to take a home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy (I assume you are having unprotected sex, and is the reason for your concern?).

Let us know what the test results are, or if you do not have access to a local drugstore, pharmacy or grocery store. We can guide you either way.

The most common reason for a missed period is pregnancy. I am still unsure if you had protected sex, if you are trying to become pregnant or trying to prevent a pregnancy, but since you are on day 35 of your cycle, you can take a home pregnancy test if this is what you are worried about.

If you are not concerned about pregnancy, and are just wondering why your period is late, then there are all types of reasons women have a late or even a missed period that does not include pregnancy. Reasons may include excess stress, new medication, recent illness, hormone imbalance, medical condition, or other unknown reasons.

It is common for women to miss a period or two, but if you continue to be concerned, and are not pregnant, you can call your Gynecologist for an appointment.
