Reasons for my period to be 2 days late?

Watch, I'm going to post this and then it will happen overnight or something >.<
I've had a period tracker app on my phone since May and it has been surprisingly accurate up until this point. It told me I had a 31 day cycle (on average 35, 29, 31, 30, 32) and so that it should have happened on the 3rd. It was the 2nd last month, and the 3rd of August, and the 2nd of July. So to have it be on the 3rd would have been right where it should have.
It is now 7:30pm on the 5th and nothing. In fact, I haven't even felt PMS-y at all either. I was a teeeeny bit more grouchy than your average 19 year old on Thursday and Friday. But not nearly as much as what I'd normally classify PMS

The one thing I can for sure rule out is pregnancy because you have to have sex to be pregnant and I have not. I don't even have any male friends, let alone romances. So it is definitely not pregnancy so you know not to suggest that.

Could it just be late for no reason this month? Looking back at the past few months it has very consistently been the 1st-3rd of the month. I know it's only two days, but it's already not normal.

What are some reasons why it could be late?

Hi Casnarl

Thanks for your post - did you get it yet?!

The body doesn't care about period trackers, as handy (and accurate!) as those trackers can be. A simple and natural change in body chemistry can cause this. Our bodies change from time to time and throughout our lives. This is likely what's happening. It should arrive in the next couple of days, this is nothing to be concerned about .

Hi Susan,
Nope not yet. Saturday will have been a week "late"
Oh well, I guess. I'm sure it will be soon. I'll try not to worry about it.
