Many things can have an effect on your period being delayed The following are some of the things (apart from being pregnant, of course) that can have an effect on your period being delayed: mental/physical stress; weight loss/gain; your contraception; infections; and invisible bleeding (which le…ads you to believe that you have have missed your period). If your period is late after having had unprotected sex, I recommend taking a home-pregnancy test; you can buy them now to test up to 6 days before you are due. If, however, you have not had unprotected sex, you should see your GP; it's probably nothing to worry about, and around 85% of people have experienced a late period at least once in their life. To be on the safe side, and to put your mind at ease, visit your doctor. See the Related Link on "Missed period - are you pregnant?" pregnancy. condoms aren't 100% effective. (MORE)
It depends on the IUD. I was on Mirena and I missed several periods, I can't tell you about other makes. I have a IUD for thre and a half years. I havn't had a single period. It depends whether you get a hormonal or non-hormonal IUD. I have an IUD that is non hormonal, and just contains copper. T…his causes a hostile environment for sperm (as copper kills sperm) without affecting my ovulation or other hormonal patterns. Hormonal IUD's are available which repress ovulation and some can also create a mucus plug which aids in preventing sperm from getting past the cervix. Nice to know we have options :) (MORE)
I would say most likely not. You should take a pregnancy test if you have been sexually active anytime in the last month. any kind of sudden change in your diet can make your period stop. stress can also make it stop. the irony is stress over missing your period can actually make a delayed period s…kip insted of being delayed. Once you rule out the chance of pregnancy or sickness its more than likely stress or a sudden diet change if your periods are usually normalI would worry too much as long as you have it next month. Its also normal to miss one for no reason at all. YES if your depriveing yourself to much or following the Atkins diet then it will make perfect sense. The Atkins diet is not good for you and it really can hurt your period I recommend stopping the Atkins Diet.. (MORE)
Answer If you are still a virgin and haven't had a guy come near your vagina, then you aren't pregnant. You may need to see a doctor, there could be other problems. I'v heard of a few people who didn't get their period and had to get a some medication to start it up again. I suggest going to your d…octor. I don't know of anything that would cause you to skip a period for three months. Answer There are a number of causes of "secondary amenorrhoea", which is what you are describing.It is quite possible that it is due to a hormonal imbalance, and your doctor can easily run blood tests to check for levels of sex hormones (LH, FSH, oestradiol, prolactin and TSH are the normal tests). This imbalance could indicate a problem with the ovaries or with the hormone-producing glands in the brain.There are also simpler causes of not having periods such as not eating properly, excessive excercise (some professional athletes have this problem) and stress. All of these are just as important to address.Without knowing more about you, it is difficult to assess the most likely of these causes. A trip to your doctor is recommended and should definitely give some answers.Hope you get it sorted.Ben Answer One of the reasons of delay in periods can also be PCO syndrome. Polycystic Ovaries syndrome. Please see your doctor immediately for more details. ASAP Answer Same thing happened to me, only for almost a year. I went to see my PCP doc and he told me not to be concerned about it and that "most women would be happy" if they didn't have to "deal" with their period. I did get it again eventually, but it was VERY irregular and sporadic. When I went to an obgyn to get on the pill, she told me that my pcp was essentially stupid. Missing for that long can be a sign of serious health issues, and it can also CAUSE serious helath issues, too. She totally put me on the pill to get me regulated, and I am now. Go see an OB, and ask about progesterone cream, that jump started mine. Good luck!I'm sorry there was no way to comment but what if your still a kid cuz when I had just turned 11 I had gotten my period and they never came back and this summer it's gonna be a year since I talked to my mom about it but she doesn't know cuz hers went straight till her 40's so...

After extensive research on Clomid and after having used Clomid for 3 months, there is nothing out there that shows this as a side effect. However, Clomid should be used by women who are NOT ovulating. If you are already ovulating, save yourself the discomfort of the side effects and at the very lea…st, limit your Clomid treatment to 3 months to lower your risk of cysts and cancer. I was ovulating normally but took the Clomid and now that I am no longer taking Clomid, I am no longer ovulating. Thus, not only did I not become pregnant, I also adversely affected my future chances of conceiving. (MORE)
No, a bladder infection won't cause a late or missed period. But antibiotics, which are usually given for a bladder infection, can cause the pill not be as effective. If you are late or missed a period you should see a doctor for a pregnancy test. Or take a home test. Anytime you are on antibiotics,… you need to use a back up method of birth control. (MORE)

There could be several different causes for missing a period. The first, and most obvious reason is pregnancy. Although, you can miss a period and not be pregnant. Other causes could be a hormonal imbalance (thyroid), stress, excessive weight gain/loss, problems with ovaries (syst, tumors..although …this is to the extreme). My suggestion is to see your doctor. If you are not pregnant, then they can run further test to detect the problem. (MORE)

I'd really like to know the answer to this as well...the same thing happened to me. I got dropped on my head pretty hard about 4 weeks ago and suffered an intense concussion (no bleeding or cracks in the head, though). I'm two and a half weeks late on my period, taken 6 EPT tests which were ALL nega…tive. I'm not pregnant, so why the missed period? I've read that concussions can cause significant stress to your body which can make your periods messed up (either get too many, too light, or not at all). Other then that, I have no explanation since Im normally very scheduled with my periods. (MORE)
I just started welbutrin early october. I was weening off of sertraline. I had a period on october 9th which lasted two days and was very light. I was already late so I thought and had taken a pregnancy test the day before I got it. So this month I've been very nauseas and tired and irritated. I hav…en't gotten my period. I took a test still negative. Is the medicine causing this? Could I be pregnant? and does the medicine cause a inaccurate PT test? (MORE)
No, your period will come normally. I was pregnant when i found out i have HPV but was told it will notmess up your period. Genital warts and cervical cancer are the onlyproblems hpv could cause and both are rare. Two of my older sistershave had HPV. One had hers frozen and the other had it removed… withlasers. None of us had any symptoms and didn't know we had aproblem until we had pap smears. Mine hasn't been treated because Iam pregnant and should go away on its own when i give birth. (MORE)
The common causes of missed menstrual periods include: 1. Having an irregular cycle. This is common in girls first starting their periods. 2. Being pregnant. 3. Being in perimenopause. That is the 1-3 years before full menopause. 4. Starvation and eating disorders. 5. Severe stress.
A woman can miss periods for several reason (stress, illness,starvation, etc.) but pregnancy is also a common reason. If you areworried you may be pregnant get a home pregnancy test at thedrugstore.
Yep. In fact sometimes if your really stressed about if your pregnant the stress can make you miss and make you even more stressed.
Pregnancy would certainly cause you to miss your period. But that's not the only possible reason for missing one period. To find out if you're pregnant, you need a real pregnancy test.
Yes you can. Teenage girls frequently do--missing a period is not a sure sign of pregnancy but when coupled with morning sickness and sore/growing breasts it is a more definitive sign. Missing a second one coupled with the other symptoms is almost a certain sign of pregnancy.
f it's not your first it can be due to stress, weight gain or loss, hard exercise, pregnancy or just skip a month which is also natural. If you are very young it also takes about 2 years to become regular.
My period is 10days late and I also took Cipro for 10 days. I tested pregnancy and it was negative, so only thing different was my urinal infection and taking cipro.
Yes, you could be. I suggest that you take a pregnancy test. If the test is negative and your next period is abnormal, missing or late then you should go and see the doctor or gynaecologist to get checked out.
Many anti-depressants have a side effect of delayed or missedperiods. With Lexapro, this side effect is not one of the morecommon ones, but it is a possible one. Likewise, withdrawing frinLexapro may also result in a missed period. If you miss a period onLexapro, you should first test to see if you …are pregnant. Missedperiods are commonplace and happen to most women at some point intheir lives. If you are extremely worried, if there are othercomplications, or if you have missed more than three periods in arow, see a doctor. (MORE)

There are several causes for a missed period. Stress seems to be one of the bigger ones. Another could be an infection, and sometimes it just happens with no apparant cause. If it persists or you have pain you should definitely talk to your doctor.

Sorry but they are no way linked so no a bladder infection can not cause a missed period or even a pregnancy test to show as negative
A missed period could be caused by excess stress, sudden weight loss or rapid weight gain, medications you may have started or stopped taking recently, if you have worked out more than usual recently, pregnancy, and - more serious, though MUCH less common - certain diseases or STDs.
Being pregnant is the most common, but in when you first have your period it can be irregular because your body is trying to get in a regular pattern of releasing eggs. Lack of food or being sick can also sometimes cause missing periods.
Yes. Many women who are training for sports skip periods because of the extreme training they are doing.
There are no STDs that delay periods. Take a pregnancy test if your period is late.
I Guess It Depends On Somethings.. If Your Sexually Active, Then You May Be Pregnant.. It Could Happen If You Under A Lot Of Stress.. You May Want To Go See Your Doctor On That One. That Would Probably Be The Best Way To Know Why Your Missing Periods.

Like any hormonal birth control method, Nuva Ring is likely to cause lighter flow and shorter periods than you had before you started on it. In the first three months, you may have irregular spotting or bleeding. It's less common on Nuva Ring than on the pill, but it can occur. After the three month… "breaking in" period, you should see more regular periods and lighter flow. Sometimes, on Nuva Ring, the flow gets so light that you don't notice anything at all. That is normal, and there's no need for concern if you used the ring correctly last month. You can take a pregnancy test if you're concerned, though. This decrease is not dangerous -- it's not as if the lining is building up and waiting to be shed. (In fact, it's this effect on the lining of the uterus that allows hormonal birth control to lower the risk of endometrial cancer in women who use it.) For some women, the lack of bleeding is welcome, and for others, it's worrisome. If it bothers you, talk with your health care provider about other options. If you've made a mistake with your ring, it makes sense to take a pregnancy test to make sure that's not a factor. Then discuss your bleeding pattern with your health care provider to make sure no other factors are contributing. Then decide if you think this is a helpful or irritating side effect.. I have been on the Nuva Ring for about 6 months now and it's the only birth control I can take and not have nasty side effects. My doctor told me that it is very common for your period to become very light if not go away completely from using the Nuva Ring after a couple of months. My periods on the Nuva Ring would last for maybe an hour as spotting- and then nothing. I have been on Nuva Ring for exactly 3 years. My periods have varied but have been so much lighter than before. For the last three months, I have had no period with the 3-week in, 1-week out method for the ring. I went to the doctor 1 month ago and he said it is perfectly normal. I don't feel any different. I am not pregnant either. My sexual activity is sporadic since I don't have a partner, so I don't know if this affects hormonal levels. (MORE)
you may be pregnant and may need to see a doctor. you don't have to be a person who has already done IT. it can happen.
I have had this and tested negative for pregnancy (I knew it was very unlikely I would be pregnant anyway as my fiance had a vasectomy years ago although I do know that miracles can happen so I wanted to rule it out before visiting my doctor) so I went to the doctor and I'm currently to undergo bloo…d tests and an ultrasound for suspected PCOS. I get my blood tests on the 12th and am awaiting a letter for my scan. Try a search on it and see if you have any of the symptoms, that's what my doctor suggested I did. I know I have quite a lot of the symptoms. Would advise you go to your doctors and speak it over with them. Hope this helps! (MORE)
It could very well mean you have a Pituatary Pro-Lacting Producing tumor. You need to go get a pelvic and they will refer you to a neurologist for further examination.
Affection of the sexual kind will cause a missed period if you are pregnant. An infection will seldom cause your menstrual cycle to be late.
I wouldn't panic to much, just enjoy your life and carry on as normal. Because your 14 your period pattern probabely hasn't settled, a similar thing happened to me, if it goes to long without having one then maybe try seeing a doctor, keeping calm will be the best thing to do :)
Thank you for putting the full information needed to answer this correctly right up front! It generally takes several years for menstruation to become "regular" - also most young teens have periods closer to every 40 days than every 28 days. Missing a period is very common. Being stressed out by …school, friends, starting a diet, starting a new sport or exorcise routine, having the flu or a cold - just about everything you can imagine will cause periods to be out of whack. No need for concern unless they are completely regular for a good 6 months - then with no stress or illness they start being irregular. Spacing out, coming every other month, very heavy one month, then very light spotting the next. No sex truly means no worries - where a missed period is concerned. when you decide you are ready for sex (in 20 years or so ;) make sure you get yourself situated on good birth control first - being mature enough for sex means being mature enough to be responsible - (MORE)
Paragard does not cause missed periods. If you miss a period on Paragard you should take a pregnancy test as soon as possible. No, it's not mormal.I read that if it's late you should see your healthcare provider because you might be pregnant.
This can happen for many reasons. These include pregnancy, stress (and anything else that causes hormonal changes), infections, or none of the above. You generally have to see your doctor/gynecologist to find the specific cause.
Yes, it can be. If you are under stress this can cause missed periods. If you have been sick, on a diet, all of these things can cause missed periods. If you are young and just starting your periods it is common to skip months or to have irregular period. It takes a year or two before a cycle become…s regular. (MORE)
Things like stress, poor dieting, and also premature menopause can cause you to miss four periods. I would definitely talk to a doctor.
It could be anything from a minor irregular period to serious health problems. I am leaning more towards the irregular period.

Yes. When you menstruate is determined by ovulation, if you're not healthy your body will delay ovulation in order to prevent your getting pregnant when not healthy enough to cope - thus if ill around ovulation you may see a delay in your next period.
