Period 2 months late, never had sex

I'm 17 years old and have never had sex before. My boyfriend and I did get close to it, but there was no insertion and he didn't climax or anything like that. The thing is, I've skipped periods plenty of times before due to stress, but it was always just skipping a month. This time I think it's been almost two months and I am terrified. I'm not sure if this is why, but I have been sleeping far less lately and eating really irregularly (which has caused me to gain weight). I've also been sick (nothing remotely serious, though) and I've been going through a lot of emotional stress. I hope that these are the reasons why I've skipped my period, but I've been panicking about this so I wanted to ask. Do you have any advice or possible causes?
thank you in advance :)

Hi crzy,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. In your teens and into your 20s, it is not uncommon to have irregular periods or miss months from time to time. I missed a period when I was 19 for almost a full year. If you have concerns, you can go see your doctor and they can prescribe you something to force your period to start but since it has only been two months, I would wait another month to see if it comes back.

If you fear pregnancy (which I don't think you do), you can always take a pregnancy test for a piece of mind. I hope this helps.
