I missed my period and I’m not sexually active. What could be causing that?

Someone’s period can actually fluctuate based on what’s going on in their life.  This means that stresssicknesschange in physical activity, or even worrying about why you’re not getting your period can make a period act differently.

While sometimes menstruation happens on the traditional 28-day cycle, plenty do not.  It’s possible that you may have had an annovulatory cycle (that you did not release an egg this month).  A missed ovulation can translate to a missed or irregular period. While this can be healthy and normal, make an appointment if you find yourself worrying about your period. Our Teen Clinic practitioners can offer tips and strategies for regulating the period, and they’ll make sure you’re healthy.

If you were sexually active, it would be important to know that any time semen comes into contact with the vagina, pregnancy can happen. If this were the case, that person would be at risk of pregnancy.

You can call Teen Clinic at 303-442-5160 to make an appointment or just to ask more questions about your period!
