Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your concern about a late period.

you mention, protected sex as far as you know. Are you taking birth control or did your partner use a condom?

Was your period in late August normal, as in did you have a normal flow for several days or was it spotting?

Have you had unprotected intercourse since your last period?

Wait and see if the spotting increases to a normal period flow. If it does not, then there is some imbalance in your hormone levels. This is the reason for the delay. Call your doctor who can order blood tests to check hormone levels.

Thanx for ur reply Maryann, yes my partner used a condom.
And after my periods in august(very healthy 5 days bleeding not spotty), I did not have sex in the whole month of September, so please suggest accordingly. Today Oct 8th i got just 2 or 3 drops of blood very light

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for the additional information. I think you can rule out pregnancy. This leaves a hormonal imbalance as the most likely reason.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. Any upset in the levels of one or more of the four hormones will cause an irregularity.

Stress, excessive exercising, weight loss or weight gain and illness can cause a delay.

It is obvious that this is causing your concern. Please contact your gynecologist about this.
