Hello, I was just having a few issues with my period.

I am not pregnant because I have never had sexual intercouse (just manual/dry sex) and I actually took a pregnancy test to be sure because I get anxious anyways and it turned3 up negative. I took it at 5 pm at night on the day my period was supposed to be due (May 23). That would be accurate right even though it wasn't in the morning?

Anyways, this is the second year in a row that it has happened. My period is always on time, usually to the day of the week and the hour. But, for the past two years in the month of May I am late. I was in college (recently graduated this may) and I am thinking its because of the move home, exams, moving out, etc. Do you think that is the case?

I know that I shouldn't worry about it and it will show up in its own time, but I was still kind of worried about it. Last year it came like a week late.

So, your cycle is normally how many days long? (I ask to get a sense of how you're charting)

Periods showing up literally, like every 28 days and six hours apart, would be a level of regularity that's pretty unusual. So having a period NOT be that to-the-minute isn't anything to worry about, that's actually much, much more typical.
