Late period

I had my last period on September 4 and my cycle length is usually 30 days so my next period should be last October 4 based on the calculations made in YourDays.com but I didn't get my period and I had protected sex with my boyfriend on October 9. Up until now, I don't have my period. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I also don't have any signs of pregnancy. What could be the cause of this delay?

Hi Mimidesu

There are a zillion reasons for changes in your menstrual cycle. Stress, diet, exercise, medications, age, and sometimes they just change a little over time. If you used a contraceptive odds are you are not pregnant.

Give it a little more time, maybe another week or two, and if you still don't get it test again. Then make an appointment with your gynecologist for a checkup. But I bet you'll have your period before any of that is necessary.

Good luck and thank you for writing.

Thanks for the reply. It made me feel better. I guess I am stressed with school these days and honestly speaking, I am overweight and I'm currently drinking some herbal slimming tea so that I can lose weight. I guess these things made my cycle go haywire.
