What are some reasons of why my period is late?

My period is now 13 days late from its expected time. I'm 17 so i know it's not regular, but my cycle usually lasts about 37 days and now I'm on the 51st day of this cycle. The last time I had sex was more than 3 months ago and I've had my period 2 times after that, so I'm sure I'm not pregnant. I have been under extreme stress and have been worrying a lot. I also stopped my regular exercise this past month.

Hi H2O,

Thank you for your question.

From time to time during the course of a woman's life, there is a high probability that she will be experience irregularities during her menstrual cycle.

However there are some other factors that can bring it on as well. Stress is a big one. So if you're admitting to an enormous amount of stress, it's very likely the culprit. Medications can cause irregularities and so can increased exercise

I hope this helps.
Be well,
