Why My Period Is Late

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have not had my period for almost two months now, but I know that I am not pregnant. I really don't want to go to the doctor because I feel as though this is very embarrassing. Do you know what this could be from? I read somewhere that it could be from stress. I have had tons of stuff that I've been worrying about lately. If you have any answers about what this could be from, could you please email me?





Stress can certainly wreak havoc with your cycle, but so can a lot of other things, including pregnancy, eating disorders, excessive exercise, and medical conditions. We recommend checking with your doctor/health care professional when you miss more than two periods. Don't be embarrassed to discuss it with doctor/health care provider. This is a topic she/he deals with often.


Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts
