Females only please!!

So, I may sound weird asking this but I'm just very confused. I've never had any health problems... I've had my period for almost six years now. It was always regular but the past few months it's been a little late. (I've heard it's only considered late if it's over 5 days late), but lately it has been about 2-3 days late. Is this normal? I'm only confused because this hasn't ever happened until September. In September it was actually 5 days late, and since then it has been 2-3 days late, like I said. The same is happening to my friend and she is worried there is something wrong with her. Thank you.

    If it's been consistently 2-3 days late, then I would say that is now your new regular. Period patterns can change as you age. It's really nothing to worry yourself over. Stress and dieting can also change period patterns.
