I've heard many times that stress can really delay your period or in some cases make you skip it completely. But could that be the case for me? Usually my cycle is an average of 26-29 days inbetween my periods. I'm 16 and I've had my period for about 4 years now, and except for the first year my periods have been regular. Each month I'm able to track it pretty well when I should be starting. My last period I had started on June 28, making my next one due July 26 (For the av. 28 day cycle). Well, it's July 31st and still no period. I've never been late on a period before so that's what I can't understand.
My guess is that is HAS to be stress related. Someone I knew and was really close to had tried committing suicide and was really close to dying. (He's doing much better & out of the hospital now. So I don't need to worry over that much) And also this month I've had to deal with a lot of fighting my mom and her boyfriend have been doing around the house, Going to the dentist's office twice (I've got a huge fear of dentists) and the stresses of trying to STOP stressing out so much. If that makes sense.
I'm really worried about this. I don't know if it's because of pregnancy or not. I have never had sex before, but a few times this month my boyfriend has fingered me. I think the chances are slim to nothing that I could be pregnant but from what I know there was no semen involved touching me in any way. Even if there was, what are my chances? So far I've not had any pregnancy symptoms. No morning sickness, nausea, my breasts don't feel sore, I'm not eating/craving strange foods, Urination is normal and discharge is normal too. (I don't know if any of this has to do with anything)
I guess my problem is I tend to over-worry about a lot of things. But it's never effected my period before. If anyone could help me out here, give me some advice or anything in that manner I would greatly appreciate it. I would just like to know what's going on & if I'll ever get my period soon. I'm quite impatient and this is killing me!
