No.

There's more information on periods and the menstrual cycle here that you can have a look at: On the Rag: A Guide to Menstruation

We can't know why your girlfriend's period hasn't come yet. It's common for periods to sometimes come later than they were expected. You can see some possible reasons for that here: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?.

But then normally she feels some kind of cramping but this time there's nothing. I know its not a pregnancy scare as Heather has answered but still worried because she din't give a proper reply. It is not a pregnancy scare right..??

Well, Heather directed you to the material and answers you have already been given. So, there is no need for you to keep asking, as you have everything you need to answer your own question.

As for your girlfriend's üeriod: bodies are not machines and so it is perfectly normal for things to sometimes be a little bit different from the way we are used to.

Yup... But i have one question as to where can sperms live..?? I mean i have searched some sites on google where it says sperms can live in water and some say they can't. Some say if water is splashed on a place where sperms have been ejaculated they may or may not survive. What is this all about..?? I mean where can they actually survive..??

Hi m, basically we need you to respect our boundaries here. It is so important that just because you feel panicked, other people's needs still matter. Whether that is your girlfriend asking you to keep from questioning her about her body or us asking you stop a certain line of enquiry. This isn't just for ourselves (although we do need that) it is also, from our experience, the only way to address the doubts you're having.

The questions you have asked can be answered by you. We believe that and we need you to too.

However, as we have already said, we can't answer you more. If you persist anyway that really isn't fair, and we might need to ask you to stop posting.
