Ok so I was supposed to get my period on july 6 but it didnt come until the 27th which is about 3 weeks late but now today the 30th its completely gone. It was really light on sunday and then heavy until yesterday now nothing ive taken 5 pregnancy tests before it came all of which were negative. I have 2 children already and I have had my period for 12 years now and never had anything like this with my kids they were planned so I knew what was going on now im not sure if im pregnant if i miscarried or if my period was really late. Any info or answer would be great. Im going to wait until next month to make a docrors appt because my dr is far away and I dont want to drive out there if im just being paranoid.

Hello Sammi91,

You are not being paranoid. This is very irregular for someone your age.
I can appreciate that your physician's office is far away.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by hormones - estrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and progesterone. Any imbalance or factor that effects one of these hormones can cause an irregularity in your menstrual cycle.

Sammi91, have you thought about calling your doctor's office? Speak with the nurse or leave a message for your physician to call you back. At least you will get some feedback regarding your concern and can schedule an appointment, if necessary.
