What do you do if you have never had sex but you haven't had your period for about 32 days?

I am almost 14 years old. It may seem weird that I am on a website to ask about my lady problems but my mother and sister are no help and my dad, well, he is my dad. I have had my period for over a year and from then to now I have kept an accurate record of when I have gotten and when I have ended my menstrual cycle. Since January or December of this year (well not December, but ya) I have gotten my period on the 16th. It is now may and I expected to get my period yesterday but it didn't come. Hopefully I thought it would come today but it didn't. I am now really worried because I know I can't be pregnant since I have never had sex and it doesn't seem normal today to have not of had your period in 32 days. I have no idea what to do except to just wait and stress myself out. Please help me because I am not sure if this is just normal or if I am really going crazy.

Thank you very much,

A. N. W.

Hello Anon

There is nothing to worry about (and nothing to be embarrassed about but I understand it's not an easy thing to talk about!) - period for the first year or two are often irregular. It makes it a bit annoying when trying to plan but it's just the nature of things. It has nothing to do with sex or interactions with boys.

Your hormones are changing and you are growing - nothing stays the same for long, including period dates, for some young girls.

It will be along when it's ready. Just carry supplies in a little bag in your backpack or whatever you carry around. Your cycle will sort itself out soon enough; you haven't your periods long enough to even establish a pattern.

Hello Anonymous,

Please mention this to your pediatrician during your next visit.

During the early years of menstruation, a young girl's cycle can be irregular. They can become regular, but some women will have irregular periods throughout their lives.

Hello Molly15,

Ask your parent or guardian to contact the pediatrician's office.
In the early years of menstruating, a young girl's period can be irregular. in your case, you want to rule out a hormonal issue.

When you say you feel sick, are you having nausea and vomiting? a fever? fatigue? Mention this to the pediatrician. It may be a virus.

I'm 14 and I have had sexual intercourse with my loved one I haven't gotten my period and its a week late. I'm worried I might me pregnant but I don't think I am because I have used a condom and I haven't had sexual intercourse with my loved one in almost two months. I have had the problem where my period has skipped a couple of days and I'm scared to talk to my mom.

Hi Anon

You may be irregular just due to being so young - at 14, your cycle is still regulating itself and may do so for several more years.

But take a pregnancy test to rule that out.

I'm 14 and I haven't had my period in a little over a month. I haven't ever had sex or even kissed anyone! But I am getting a lot of discharge and am bloating a lot. Does that mean anything? Sorry if this may sound stupid I'm just nervous since I have gotten my period regularly for the last year.
