Late period?!

I was supposed to start my period yesterday but it has not come yet. It's giving me a lot of stressing and keeping me up at night. My periods are very irregular but I usually start early or right on time. I figured that this time I probably didn't start early because of the stress of starting back to school and because of my boyfriend enlisting for the army. My stress has been through the roof this month so that's why I figured I might be a little late. However I have other signs of being pregnant and I don't really know what to do. My boyfriend and I always use condoms and have not had sex that much since my last period because of our now busy schedules. I'm thinking about taking a pregnancy test later today, but I can't be any more terrified. Where is my period?!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Stress can cause a delay in the start of your period. Try your best to relax.

Wait until your period is late by at least one week, then test. For the most accurate result, test in the morning, using the first urine of the day.
