So usually I get my period around now, either a couple of days before or after the 16th, and it's been like that for a while, but this month, it's late, unusually late.
I was wondering what can cause a period to be late, if I haven't had a pregnancy risk? All I've been doing this past month was a little bit of dry humping with my boyfriend while I was in underwear and him in boxers and pj's, and I know that won't cause a risk.
I've also been drinking a lot more water lately, and I've been super busy with my schoolwork and music.
Could any of this have any effect on why my period is late?

Thank you [Smile]
