Hi there,
I'm 19 and i'm 30 days late on my periods. I was supposed to get them around june 18th, but still nothing. I had protected sex with my boyfriend around beginning of june. I'm not on the pill. I was pretty worried so after 2 weeks late, i did a home pregnancy test and it was negative. I was quite relieved and thought it was just stress or something but my boyfriend is still worried and ask me to do another test. I don't have any pregnancy symptoms.
I am at uni, and had finals around beginning of june, i was pretty stressed, tired and didn't sleep a lot. I went back to my country for holidays after my finals, so my eating/lifestyle habits changed a lot. Could that explain my late period? Should I wait a bit or do another test to be sure it's not pregnancy?
Thank you!

So, how many days long are your cycles normally, and for how many months have they been around that long?

Mind, all of the things you're mentioning -- even one of them -- could absolutely influence your cycles and result in a late or missed period. But it sounds like pregnancy isn't a likely reason, given your test result.

It varies a lot, my cycles are around 30-32 days. My last periods were on May 16th. I'm not really on time with my periods but i never skipped a whole month like this.

Okay. So, that can happen sometimes, and this just might be the first time it has happened.

My best advice would be that if you don't see any flow by another month, to check in with your healthcare provider and have them look into it.

And try and do what you can to catch up on sleep, get back to your usual eating habuts, et cetera.

Thank you very much! I'm getting back to my uni/usual life in 2 weeks. Hope my period come back.
Anyway thank you for your advice.
