Is there any certain reasons for why my period could be late? I'm not sexually active and I have never fooled around with a guy, so what's the deal? If anyone has any ideas about what might be wrong pleeze tell me. Thankz,

Since you're period is late, it could be from stress or some periods are just irregular for a while. Mine was irregular for 2 years & a few months ago it finally straightened out. So don't worry, it's normal.

Shygirl is right, it usually doesn't mean anything, since it takes years to settle into a regular cycle unless you are on the pill.
Sometimes it's due to your eating habits and stress levels.. there are many reasons, but if you are really worried about it, or if you are experiencing any other things you are unsure of, pay a visit to your gyno.

How late is it? Like, a day? Or three weeks?

periods can be late for any number of reasons, improper diet, underweight, not enough sleep, hormonal shifts, pregnancy... etc.

If you normally have regular periods, and you're late... it's best to go to a doctor and have him or her to check you out. Just as a precaution, esp. if you're sexually active.

just a girl, a lonely one at that.
