Im 14 and ill be 15 in a few months, ive never had sex promise. But im worried about my menstrual cycle i havent got my period yet, and im not that good at tracking it i guess mostly when it comes and and goes. But my guess on when i last got my period was maybe in the beggining of october. So technically i was suppose to get it early november im about 2-3 weeks late. I know im young and talking about this on a website like this wouldnt be really a good thing but, i went to alot of people my parents and my sisters but they didnt give me and advise what to do or help on what was wrong or if there was maybe nothing wrong with it. But i am very worried and i need to know whats going on right away.

Thankyou so much

Dear Am,

Thank you for posting and welcome to Empowher.

I can certainly understand why you would be worried about your period being 3 weeks late but at your age that is actually relatively normal. Many teens tend to have irregular periods for some time after getting this first period. For some it will only last a few months for others it may take years to regulate.

You may skip a period one month, have a longer period the next, and a shorter one the following month and still be considered to have a regular cycle. I have included some more information for you to read, I think it will help you better understand your monthly cycle. Good Luck!
