I am 15 years old and I haven't gotten my period since last month I was suppose to get it near the beginning of the month but it's late, I haven't had sex but I have had other sexual contact with my boyfriend, I've talked to him about it and my parent but they are no help.
Is there any reason for this?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
It is common during adolescent years to have irregular and/or missed periods. The reason is because your body is still reaching a hormonal balance. It does not necessarily mean you are pregnant, or that you have any health issues. In your case pregnancy is not an option because you have not had intercourse.
It is not necessary to have a regular period unless you are experiencing severe symptoms such as prolonged, very heavy or frequent bleeding. That can indicated a serious problem that needs treatment.
Below I have pasted a link to a HER article that talks a bit more about possible causes for irregular periods.
