Hello folks [Smile]

I was waiting for my girlfriend's period to come, so I want to get some tips from you guys.

This month we didn't do intercourse, just manual sex. I didn't thinking about that too much, because based on information here I know pregnancy wont happen because of that. But today, my girlfriend said that she was supposed to get her period yesterday. So then, we worried why didn't it come on time.

If any of you guys has been in my position, what should I do to enjoy my life in this waiting time? She didn't want to take a test so I can't force her. I'll be glad if you guys share your opinion or experience [Smile]

Sorry for my bad english [Razz]

Even the most regular cycles can vary by a few days each month, so one day isn't anything to be concerned about.

As for what to do in the meantime, pretty much anything that helps you relax is good. [Smile] If you're looking for some ideas, we have a great article on self-care here: Self-Care a La Carte

Thanks for the link Karybu,

Actually in the middle of her cycle she had a flu and fever for several days, so she went to the hospital and she got an antibiotics which she took until yesterday. So I wonder, maybe the illness and antibiotics were the reasons for late period?

I've been spending my time watching movies and hang out with friends, while today she was spending her time with her family, so far so good [Smile]

Well, today she hasn't had her period yet. So it was late for two days for now. I hope tomorrow morning she will bleed when she wake up! lol [Razz]

You really need to know that the reproductive system is a sensitive one, one that can be impacted, and show changes, due to even minor shifts in any other part of the body. Cycles going wonky because of illness is a common occurrence.

Too, there really is no two- days late with periods. Menstrual cycles standardly deviate by a few days for most people who have them. That is why doctors do not even talk about late periods most of the time until a period is later than around five days after the very latest day it was expected.
