Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for seeking our help with your concern about a late period.

Anonymous, you said that you had sex three months ago. Unless you have had unprotected sexual intercourse since your last period, pregnancy is not the cause of your late period.

High stress levels, eating disorders, a hormonal imbalance and excessive exercise such as athletic training can cause a late period.

Women who are going through perimenopause will have irregular periods because of fluctuations in estrogen levels. Young women who have recently begun menstruating will have irregular menstrual cycles as their reproductive hormones adjust.
