I'm starting to get worried about when I'm actually due my next period. I had my period at the start of March and it lasted for 5 days (about normal) but then literally 2 days later I had another period. I was a complete virgin at the time and that lasted for about 7 days. I've not had a period since and it's close to a full 4 weeks since I've bled. I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend while I was bleeding the second time about 2 or 3 days after it started and we used a condom. We've used condoms every time since too. Also yesterday we were having sex and when he pulled out the condom accidentally stayed in me. I wanted to be safe rather than sorry so I went and got Levonelle (the morning after pill) this morning as I'm not on any other form of contraception just yet but will be very soon. Is it possible that having sex for the first time can make your period late? If so, I've heard that Levonelle can also make you bleed and can make your period early or late. In the past 3 and a half weeks I've taken 2 pregnancy tests because I was so paranoid about the fact that I hadn't had another period yet and both were negative. A little over a week after I bled for the second time I felt very ill, almost flu like but the symptoms went away after 4 or 5 days. Lately I've been getting stressed about end of year exams in uni, my nanna being ill and dying on Tuesday this week and I was also stressing about having missed my period. Because I've been so stressed I haven't really been eating properly. Can any of this cause a period to be 3 weeks late(and counting)? Was the second bleed even a period? I read somewhere that any time you bleed it can basically mean that you don't need a period for a while because your cycle has started over again as bleeding means your body is shedding the uterine lining. Is this true? Also, one of the side effects that a lot of women seem to experience with Levonelle is bleeding for about a week and it can start any time from the day you take it until 2 weeks after, does it mean that once I've bled after taking the Levonelle, if it happens, that my cycle will go back to normal? Sorry about all the questions but I would kind of like an answer ASAP instead of getting more stressed about not having a period yet while I wait for the next 3 weeks for my GP appointment (earliest time they could fit me in to the family planning clinic).
