Why is My Period Late?

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I am 14 years old and just had my first period ever almost 2½ months ago, and haven't had another since. I know it is normal to be a little late, but is this becoming too late? I am not sexually active so I know I can't be pregnant. I haven't told this to my mom yet because I don't want her to be worried. Should I see a doctor or just keep on waiting?

 

Please help,

JoAnn

Dear JoAnn,

When you first start your period it isn't uncommon to have your first period and then not have one for several months or you may have another one in just a few weeks. You may start out with a regular cycle and then become irregular. Having an unpredictable cycle is not uncommon during your teen years. It may take years for your cycle to become regular.

 

Hope this helps,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I haven't started my period yet. Is it weird to want it? The girls in the tampax training camp videos make it look like fun, although I know it can be pretty bad.

Hi, I'm 14 and my period is about 4-5 days late. My first period was 2 and 1/2 years ago. I believe in sex AFTER marriage so it's impossible that im pregnant..I dont know what I'm saying I'm just really scared right now! I've been having slight cramps for the past week but not as painful as the ones I normally have. I've been having a lot of discharge, and I can always feel something leaking from my vagina and I always think it would be my period but then I go check and there's nothing! I was due like on August 30 or 31, 2013, and today's September 4th. Is it because school started like 3 weeks ago and I've been busy and stressed?
