Just turned 18, my periods have never been late but now it’s been 5 days, and im worrying why it hasn’t come? I’ve never had sex or anything, and it’s stressing me out. Could stressing make it not come and why hasn’t it? I’ve been eating lots of junk food recently aswell could that be a reason?

Hello. Thank you for your message today.

If you have not had sex, why would you think you are pregnant? Pregnancy is not magic. It happens through sexual intercourse with ejaculation that enters your vagina. At some point, most women will experience an early, late, or even a skipped period. Reason for this can be stress, illness, a change in lifestyle, weight loss or weight gain, taking certain medications or a change in body chemistry. Our hormones dictate our periods. Try to relax. Your period will come along when it's ready.
