Hi Scarleteen, Back in May, I had intercourse for the first time with my boyfriend. I was stressed that I was pregnant and therefore, my period was about 2 weeks late. Usually my period is right on time and comes every 28 days. Then in June my period was late by 4 days. I'm not sure when to expect my period because the last couple of months have been shaky. I'm not sure if this is due to the fact that I've started having intercourse cause that's what my boyfriend says. But that is what it seems like. My question is could my period wonkiness be due to the fact that I've started having intercourse? If anyone has any input on what they think this might be, then it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Edited to say that I've been menstruating for about 9 years and I thought my period would've been regulated itself by now.

Having any kind of sex cannot alter your menstual cycle unless you become pregnant. A penis has no powers of that kind any more than a vibrator, your fingers, tampons, et.c do, which is to say none. Sometimes though, stress and anxiety due to intercourse can cause disruptions.
It's perfectly normal to have changes and shifts in your cycle during your life. Hormones aren't stagnant or static, and lifestyle changes of all kinds can have an impact.
But you cerainly can mention it to your GYN at your next appointment.
