Random missed period?

6 replies

Has anyone ever experienced a random missed period for no reason? I'm 7 days late and have taken a pregnancy test every morning for the last 5 days and all are negative so I know I'm not pregnant. So what's going on? I've been like clockwork since I had my first when I was 12! Has anyone else had this?

I didn’t have periods for about 9 months many years ago, down to stress.
How old are you ?

@FippertyGibbett wow I didn't realise they could stop due to stress! Luckily my job is not at all stressful so I don't think it's that, I'm 24

Is pregnancy a possibility? It might be early days and not showing up on a test.
It could you have your dates mixed up?

Weight loss? Low body fat causes them to stop.

@NC4Now i wrote down when I started my last period so I'm definitely 7 days late so that would definitely show up on a test wouldn't it? I don't want to be pregnant that's why I'm so on edge about it!

Do you do a lot of exercise? I find if I'm training hard (for me it's running, so if I increase my miles by 20% or more if I'm training for a race for example) then it can delay ovulation which then in turn delays my period. I've got pretty good at using my Fitbit heart rate monitor to track ovulation now though so I don't have that 'oh god, not again ' feeling so much Grin
