hello all!! being a woman is a pain. first you have the whole monthly bleeding thing that makes an awful mess...your boobs get too big and they hurt...your hips get too big and you cant find clothes that, im having a lil problem that ive never had before. my period decided not to come this month. im not pregnant-i went and had a blood test done at the doc's office on friday...he mentioned that i have the start of a yeast infection and that could be stopping the period. or my sister said it could be because my body is "reseting" itself. i also had a very stressful week last week-my basement flooded, my father in law is sick, and i had some drama at work. but ive dealt with all that before-and worse-and this never happened to me. ive skipped 3 periods my whole life-once when i was 14 and just "starting out" and then once when i was pregnant with each of my

just a quick update-i guess someone pushed the reset button...or something. my period showed up...on monday night-right before i punched into work. its been normal. my doctor said-women are not robots or computers-theres always blips on the screen-your period might not come every 28 days-it might be 28, it might be 30, it might be 39, it might be i guess this time around it was 40 days in between my lovely cycles...hopefully

Hello! I apologize for not getting here sooner. Happy to hear everything is okay. My guess is all the stress delayed your cycle. Stress can delay ovulation, therefore delaying your period. That happened to me once. The week before I got married, my cat also disappeared for 4 days. My period was a week late though I expected it since I was tracking my cycles.

If you have any other questions, please come back and ask! Im also starting to get a yeast infection. No idea why. Bah!
