Very light and late period

I'm a girl of 14 and I'VE NEVER HAD SEX! From the last month i have been getting delayed periods and they are light. This time it can only be called spots. I get vaginal inflammation before periods but this time, it is less irritating. My left breast is bigger than the right and they have been getting sore along with the nipples from the last month when the dates start to arrive. My mom says it is due to iron deficiency and got me a tonic but i have my doubts. Do these mean I'm pregnant. Please help, I'm scared!!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with concerns about your period.

Did your physician determine that you have an iron deficiency? Most people do not get enough iron in their diet and a daily iron supplement or taking a daily multivitamin with iron can be helpful.

It is not uncommon for one breast to be larger than the other.

If you have never had sexual intercourse, you are definitely not pregnant.

Anonymous, when was the last time you visited the pediatrician for an exam? I think your mother should schedule one. The change in your periods, coming late and being light, might indicate a hormonal issue. Your doctor can order a blood test to find out.

Please keep us updated.

Thank you so much for helping. But there are no such professional female physician or pediatrician with whom these problems can be discussed. There are absolutely NO GYNAECOLOGISTS here. I've begun taking in the disgusting iron tonic. I begun my period yesterday (properly today) but its relatively light and black-ish. I surfed the net and found that even sometimes rarely without sex, one may get pregnant. That's what's killing me. I am also overweight. Keep helping me, please! Thanks a tonn!!
*P.S.- Could you also help me on how to become a free member of EmpowHer...
