im 19 and my period will be 3 weeks late on wednesday. i am not pregnant because i am still a virgin. i have had a change of routine and i had a tummy bug days before my period was due which normally would delay it but it usually would be a week late. i am usually regular but i can be late when i am out of routine.i dont think im stressed because i got exam results last week. i have been getting cramps like i normally would but they dont last as long as usual and it should come soon. there is nothing that i can do to speed it up bt is there something wrong? i want to start the contraceptive pill this month and i have bought it and i am just waiting. would it be late because im anticipating starting the pill?
Change of routine or being sick can definitely delay a period. I'd wait another week and if it still doesn't show, then see your doctor. They'll be able to look into anything that might be causing the delay and perhaps give you something to bring on your period.
