Late period 2 months in a row...

This is the second month in a row that my period is late. Last month my period was a week late. When it came, it only lasted about 4 days and was light. My periods usually last 5-6 days and are heavier. I figured my cycle was just changing; however, I was late again this month, this time by *hopefully* by only 2 days. (There was a little blood earlier when I used the bathroom.) I am not on any birth control, and my boyfriend and I do not use condoms all the time, usually he just pulls out. (Yes, I know that isn't good.) I've been very nauseous for the past few weeks, my appetite has changed (not as hungry & when I do eat I have to force myself to finish just a little bit of food), and just not feeling like myself. I also lost 10 pounds in about 3-4 weeks without trying-BEFORE the nauseous & appetite change really started happening. My boyfriend is thinking we need to take a pregnancy test. Any other ideas about what this could be? Is it normal? I really don't want to be pregnant...kind of been in denial about the whole thing. Thanks!

Hi. My last normal period started November 9. It usually last 3-4 days . It seems like it is going to stop and then starts up again. But in December it didn't start til the 13th and it seemed my heaviest days were 2 days. Now it's January and still haven't started. If it's not pregnancy, I may go to the doctor. A few days ago it felt like I had cramping and getting ready to start but still nothing. What should I do?

Hello Anonymous,

How old are you? Have you had unprotected intercourse since you last normal period?

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. Any upset or imbalance will cause changes.

Pregnancy is just one situation, perimenopause is another. It would be wise to schedule an appointment with your gynecologist.

Hello Anon

It sounds like you are very irregular - you may have a hormonal imbalance. Consult your gynecologist.

Hi just wanna ask what's happening to me, for the first time last month my perood was 3 days late, then it came and last for 7 days and negative pt results. then this month im also delayed for three days, which is not usual for me because my period is always on time. Anyway me and my husband are trying to conceive for 10 months now, been so paranoid, I don't know whats happening to me. I haven't take a pt yet because I don't want to disappoint myself again and again. I hope u can help me out.

Hi Anon!

If you feel stress or pressure about getting pregnant, your cycle can change.

Give yourself a few more months of trying and if you have no success, talk to a doctor.
Best,

Ive been 4-5 days late for the past 2 months. Its really light and i usually bleed horribly. I am on birthcontrol and have been for over a year. The guy im seeing doesnt wear protection but usually pulls out. Only a couple times has he failed to pull out. Ive taken home pregnancy test and they have came out negative. What is wrong with me?

Hello Anonymous,

The change in the start of your period and flow might be related to the birth control method you are using. This is only a guess.

Since it is causing you concern, consider discussing it with your gynecologist.

Hello Anonymous,

Possible reasons for a late (2 weeks late) period would be pregnancy, if you are having unprotected sex, perimenopausal changes, if you are in your 40s or 50s, hormonal condition, such as hyperthyroidism or lifestyle changes, such as excessive exercise, stress or extreme weight loss or extreme weight gain.

Hope this helps you find the reason for your late period.
