Late period

My period is about a week late but there's absolutely no way I'm pregnant (I'm a virgin). What could cause this?

Re: Late period

You probably just didn't ovulate on day 14 of your cycle, maybe later on or not at all. It's not uncommon to occasionally skip a period. Sometimes stress and emotions can disrupt the hormonal balance. I wouldn't worry unless you still don't get a period within a few weeks and then you could consult your doctor. Chances are it's just your hormones out of whack if you're 110% sure that pregnancy is not a possibility.

Re: Late period

Actually the day 14 ovulation is a untrue. Granted there are SOME women who do ovulate on day 14 of their cycle but they are fewer than one thinks.
Ovulation varies from woman to woman. Like me I ovulate on day 19 of MY cycle. My neighbor ovulates on day 12 of HER cycle.
There is no telling when you ovulated but if it later(due to stress,illness,travelling,and other a sorted things)than what is normal for your cycle then it can cause your period to be late.
Even gaining or losing weight can effect your cycle.
Give it a couple of weeks and if there is still no sign of your period go see your doctor to get things checked out.
