Please help!! [Frown] I has sex in February and my period was 2 weeks late. I had sex in March and April and it has only was about 3 or 4 days late. I had it in June, and my period still hasn't come. We used protection and it did not rip!!!!
Can sex mess up cycles?!

Generally, sex doesn't mess up cycles, although stress, sickness and travel certainly can, and sometimes cycles change for no real reason at all.

If you haven't had a period since June, and you've had sex in that time, it would be a good idea to take a pregnancy test. If you used condoms and they didn't break, your risk is very small, however, the first thing a doctor would check is whether you're pregnant.

By all means, for anyone sexually active in ways where pregnancy can occur, if you miss a period, you want to take a pregnancy test, so I'd say it's really important you do that ASAP if you haven't had a period in two months.

Can I also ask how you chart your cycles, though?

I ask that because it's very common for people to estimate when periods "should" arrive incorrectly, often figuring that if one came on, day, the 20th of July, the next should come on the 20th of August, then the 20th of September, even though that'd not be likely with a regular period for more than a month or two.

As well, have your periods usually been very regular until February? If so, any other life or health changes of late, like changes in your stress levels, differences in levels of activity or how much you eat, etc?

I have 4 apps on my iPhone which I put in the dates and they do it for me. Since first having sex my period dates have been:
Jan 9th-13th
Feb- 21st to 26th Had sex on the 5th Feb
March - 22nd to 28th Had sex on 12th March
April - 23rd to 28th Had sex on 30th April
May -25th - 29th Had sex on 9th July
June- 26th - 27

I have had a Water infection 16th july - 24th of july. Where I had a bit of bleeding but wasnt enough to call a period. So it wasnt. And I had a big load of stress the 25-29th July.

I'm seeing that it looks like you had some irregularity between Jan and Feb, then some regularity Feb - June, then might be having some now. It looks like your last period was nearly in July, so you're not actually two months late, more like what seems to be a week or so late.

So, could be fine, but again, since you have been having sex which can result in pregnancy and haven't seen a period, why not take a pregnancy test just to be sure?

Next time I go into town, I will buy one. Is there anything I can do to hurry up my period as I'm going camping this weekend? x

Periods come when they come. You can't make them happen at a different schedule then they're going to unless you use a method like hormonal contraception to suppress them.
