Why is my period late

Hey guys, I have been having sex with a condom and we're very careful, even to the point of checking it by filling it with water to see if any holes or anything has occurred. So I am very careful when using one, however my period was meant to be here 3 days ago and it has not arrived. I am very stressed out due to exams and my period not arriving and sometimes I can feel period pains. Also near towards my period my discharge is quite heavy however this is not the case.

Hello, Anon! Thank you for your message today.

Stress can certainly cause period irregularity. Around this time of year, with school winding down and exams, this is often a complaint from our readers. From what you say, there has been no mishap with the condoms, so try to relax and wait for your period to arrive.

Other things that can impact a woman's period, illness, drastic weight changes up or down, a change in lifestyle (like a schedule change or trip) over-exercising and hormonal imbalance, etc.
