Period a week late


I was supposed to get my period on the 24th of July. I am now I week late, I took a pregnancy test Saturday night and it came back negative. I have been emotional and my boobs are fuller but I normally get that before my period so I am hoping that because of the last month being stressful that it has just pushed it back a week. I don't think I am pregnant, my boyfriend and I always use a condom, but not sure if other problems are going on.

I stopped taking the birth control pill 9 months ago and my period cycle length appears to be getting longer each time.

Is my body still just getting back to normal or could I be pregnant or have a hidden health issue going on?

Here are my periods from when I stopped taking the pill and a few before I stopped.


August the 1st - 5th -27 day cycle

August the 27th - 30th -26 day cycle

September the 23rd - 27th -27 day cycle

Stopped talking pill on the 3rd of October

October 5th - 9th - 12 day cycle

November the 2nd - 6th -28 day cycle

December the 3rd -7th -31 day cycle


January 7th -11th - 35 day cycle

February 8th - 12th - 32 day cycle

March 11th - 15th - 31 day cycle

April 13th - 17th - 33 day cycle

May 16th - 20th - 33 day cycle

June 21st - 26th - 36 day cycle

Expected period: 24th of July -has not shown up yet, upto day 41 of cycle.

Anxiety messes up your cycle. Ive been thru this girl! You'll be okay


Thanks, hopefully it is just anxiety messing with my system! Still waiting though, 9 days late now and have very pale brown mucus so fingers crossed that means my period will be here in a day or so!

Yeah, I wouldn't worry yet. I went a month late once. I also take medication so that messed up my cycle too


A month late! That's crazy.

I'm still waiting but I think I feel it coming on so fingers crossed
