Period is late?

I'm 17 and I started my period when I was in 3rd grade so around 8 years old because I had a growth spurt. My period is late but I am still a virgin. The only thing I've done with my boyfriend is dry humping and he never ejaculated either. So I don't think pregnancy is possible. Is there a reason why my period is late? I've been having symptoms like acne, sore breasts, eating a lot but no period. According to my period tracker, my period was suppose to come yesterday but it never came and it still hasn't come today.

I don't think you need to worry too much, just yet.

You have not had sexual intercourse, so pregnancy is not a cause for your period to be late by 2 days.

Even though you have been menstruating for a few years, it is not uncommon for a period to be late by a few days. You can begin to have concern if it is late by two weeks or more.

Stress, excessive exercising, such as an athelete who is training, weight gain or weight loss, even illness can cause a period to be late.

Relax and give your body a little more time.
