Is this normal?

Is it normal for someone who is 19, but under a huge amount of stress, to skip their period? Or am I pregnant..I am 26 days late and had safe ex when I was 17 days late. I had not had sexual contact before this for about a year and a half, so I knew it was stress before. Now not so much. Please only answer is you are serious.. My anxiety is going through the roof..

PMS is rough.  When my thyroid was running slow--  I would get it at the normal third week mark after the first day of my period and it would last until I got my period ---  3 months!  Ugh.  I don't know how anybody could stand me.  Now, doctors do want to help women when they are having things like lots of pms and anxiety that could be related to hormones.  That really is worthy to look into to see if they can figure out what is going on or help you to alleviate those symptoms.  Hang in there.  I've been there---  and did go on to become regular and have just a week at most of pms (so my husband still wants to be around me.  :>) )

Thank you.

My boyfriend and one other friend says that there probably is a very slim chance I am pregnant because I was already so late before. But now my anxiety is making me think crazy.

I have been all out of whack with what seems like pms lately, for about 2 weeks. My bf wants to kill me. But obviously no period..

Hi there.  Yes, it can happen.  I had a really delayed period a few months ago when I switched into a work out routine early in the morning which changed what time I got up and my whole morning routine.  Hormones are finicky.  

I also suffered from a slow thyroid a while back and my cycle got really LONG.  As in a period every three months (miserable to wait that long with a longer version of pms, let me tell you).  

If you skip two months, then definitely follow up with your doctor.  This is assuming you've ruled out pregnancy with a test.  Lots of luck hon and hope all the stress gets better soon!

I have always been somewhat irregular. More than the normal 28 days. But I can always predict it within a day or two..

Thank you. You actually took this seriously.. This has never happened before, and everything Ive had to do with this quarter has been nothing but stress. I mean it has been late, but never this much, no more than ten days. But I've had the pain since I had sex, so now Im wondering if its the cysts..

When I was your age I was scarily irregular in my periods, like four months at a time. It turns out I actually had a medical condition. I would see a Dr. Chances are good you are just stressed or maybe it's an easy fix. :)

Yes its normal but i would take a test just to be sure. More than 2 months late then you should see your doctor. I missed mine for 3 months and had to take an abortion pill (i wasnt prego and my doc perscibed it) so that i would have a period. I was 17 at the time.

It is possible to skip or have a later period if you are stressed regardless of how old you are. But your period is late enough for a test to be accurate if you take one. It's the only way to know for sure. Put yourself outta your misery and take a test.

Stress is stress no matter what your age is sweetie. Take a test to be sure. If your period continues to not come make an appointment with your gynecologist

If you are worried you can take a test. If you used protection the last time you had sex you should be fine though and I would say that your period is late due to stress. Its not uncommon to skip periods when you are under high amounts of stress.
