Sheis 21 years old and has always being getting her period around the 25th of each month, but she hasn't had it to date.... Besides pregnancy, what else may cause this?

Anon - It's not at all unusual for women's cycles to be irregular, especially in their 20's and 30's. Sometimes stress is a cause, but changes in routine, diet, medications, other illnesses and a wide variety of other factors can cause a delay. Hope that helps! Pat

Hi Pat, we went to see a doctor today & she did a urine test & confirmed it negative! I'm am still uncertain tho. Should we do a blood test? Also, is it possible for her to completely miss her period??

Yes, it is possible to completely miss a period. It's unusual, but it does happen. If the urine test is negative then you should be able to go with that result and not need to do a blood test. I hope the test results are what you guys wanted. Take care.
