Hey Scarleteen, I was just wondering what all can delay your period? I have been under a lot of stress lately, my weight has been up and down, and my sleep patterns are all messed up. I was suppose to get my period today sometime, but it still hasn't happened yet. I haven't had sex with my boyfriend since November, so I am pretty sure pregnancy isn't factor. Even though, we do still have oral sex, I am almost positive there hasn't been any pre-ejecaculation or ejaculation around or on my vagina. Also, two weeks ago this upcoming Sunday, I went to the ER because I thought I had an appendisitis, but I had a cyst. It was 2.2 cms big, and I don't think it had ruptured but it did cause me a lot of pain and nausea. Could this be another reason why my period is kind of late?

Sounds like you've got a lot of factors for a late period in your life right now. Stress, weight changes and changes in sleeping pattern can all cause late periods.

So, I'd try not to stress about this right now. If you wind up missing this period altogether, and the next one's wonky too, it wouldn't hurt to check in with a doctor.
