My period is now 29 day late (I know I am not pregnant I took a test) I have basically everyday for the past 2 weeks have had symptoms that my period would come (back ache, stomach cramps, ect..) I have been almost positive it would come when I get all these cramps but never does. Is this normal? I cant goto the doctor because I have no income and no Insurance. I am just worried i'll never be able to actually get pregnant now when it comes the time I want to. like my period if permanently gone since its never been this late which I know sounds stupid. I didn't take the pregnancy test till I was 18 days late so I was pretty stressed prior to that. But in the past when I was stressing from being late I would take a test, see its negative and the next day get my period since I was no longer stressed. I am just worried something could be wrong with me.

Also I am 19 and have never really had a set monthly cycle. But my period has never been more than 17 days late in the past. now it going on to a month late it is really worrying me. (again I know for sure I am not pregnant)

Sometimes periods are late or missed altogether. That can be worrying, especially if it has not happened to you before, but it is not all that unusual. It is not always possible to figure out why that happens, but here is a list of some possible reasons: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

Since you have ruled out pregnancy here, I'd suggest you try to relax and focus on other things. If you miss next month's period, too, however, it would not be a bad idea to speak to a doctor.
