from the time i got my first period when i was thirteen until i was 18 years old, my period was on a strict 28 day cycle. there were probably three times in those five years that my period was late, and it was never later than a week. for my last three cycles, it has been 42 days between bleeding, and i don't have very heavy bleeding during my period. could something be seriously wrong?

Our menstrual cycle do change over the course of our lifetimes, so that's not necessarily a sign of a problem.

However, if you are concerned, it's a great idea to discuss this with your gynecologist. Have you started your regular reproductive healthcare yet?
