I’ve just started having my period and it has only happened once already and now I am 20 days late and I am scared. But I am 13 yes old and have not had sex or anything yet. What is happening??

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

It's very normal to skip periods at your age, after your first period you could skip several months and be irregular for several years. Your hormones are just beginning to change, causing this kind of irregularity.
