Why is my period 10 days late?

Hello, I am 14 years old. I started my periods when I was 10 and they have always been regular. Over the past 3 months I have got more irregular, being a little late on my period every month, and In November I completely missed a period. I haven't had a period since the 3-9th December and I am now 10 days late. Me and my boyfriend haven't had sex and I'm still a virgin, however we have done some other sexual things and I'm really starting to worry. I have generalised anxiety disorder but I have had this problem for 2 years so I'm almost certain it's not related. What could this be?

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to give you some helpful information on the subject.

Pregnancy can only occur if the male partner ejaculates into your vagina during intercourse.  So you can safely rule out the possibility of pregnancy if you have not had intercourse.  There are many other reasons why periods become irregular which include: medications, stress, little sleep, eating disorders, hormonal imbalances etc.

If you are not having any other related symptoms it is difficult to understand why you missed you period without further testing.  At this point I suggest that you consult your doctor.  The most common treatment they use is birth control pills.  Pills give your body the hormones it needs to have a regular period.

In conclusion, you are not pregnant, but you may want to see your doctor in order to explore why you are having irregular periods.
