Where's My Period?

I haven't had my period for a while, like more than month going on two. Am I missing a period because I'm pregnant? I'm not sexually active though! Are there other reasons to miss a period or for it to be late? Two months is skipping a period, right?

Two months without getting your period is considered skipping it, but you shouldn’t worry too much. Since you aren’t sexually active, you can’t be pregnant. There are other reasons girls miss their periods, one of which will probably explain why this happened!

First of all, since your period is still irregular, it’s completely possible that this is just nature being weird. Even though two months without a period can be considered skipping it, some girls have a few periods and then go four or five months before it comes again! If it’s just your period being irregular, there’s no cause and nothing you can do.

You could also unintentionally cause this. If you’ve slimmed down a lot recently, that may affect your period. As long as you’re healthy, though, that probably isn’t the reason. The last probably excuse is stress. If you’ve been under a lot (whether it’s a fight with a friend, exams coming up, or something that’s going on with your family) it can make you miss a period.

The bottom line? Make sure you’re eating healthily, and if you’re stressin’ come up with a way to relieve it, like yoga or journaling. Don’t forget to give your doc a heads up at your next check up, too.
