My period is late.......but I'm definitely not pregnant

I'm normally very regular with my period - my cycle is about 28-30 days. I was due for my period on Nov. 30/Dec 1st but it didn't come. Its Nov. 8th today and I'm now a week late but I know for sure that I'm not pregnant. I don't have a boyfriend/partner.

Its a stressful time of year and there is a lot going on (as in xmas preperations) and work has been a bit stressful too. I've been through more stressful times than this and still got my period on time. I don't think I've ever been a week late before. I haven't even got any signs that my period is coming (I always get sore breasts a few days before my period starts) and sometimes I get the cramps before my period comes.

Does anyone know whats going on?

No reason to be concerned just yet. Your menstrual cycle can be delayed due to many reasons, including stress, over excercising, illness, changes in medications, being overweight or underweight, changes in your schedule (like days to nights at work), peri-menopause, menopause, eating disorders....etc. Tons of reasons!

It's happened to me before. You ovulated late due to stress. You get your period 14 days after ovulation. If you keep stressing you are going to delay it even longer. Trust me. I'm sure you will get it in a few days.

Good news, I finally got my period!! It was 10 days overdue. Actually, I'm sort of glad it came late because I had a few dinners to go to and I didn't want my period then. This week is an 'in between' week, with not much going on. Next week will be busy again and my period will be well and truly finished by then.
