Hey PN, I love your books. I cannot wait for the rest of the series…now I have a question. My period has been regular for seven months but I am five days late of my period and I don’t know why. I haven’t had sex, so I know I cannot be pregnant. I don’t know if something is wrong or maybe I just didn’t ovulate this month, but I am confused. Thanks

As I’ve repeated many times, I’m not a doctor, but there are so many things this could be, and by the time I post your letter, you may well be menstruating.  You’re right; you cannot be pregnant.  But you said your period has been regular for seven months, which means perhaps that you started your periods seven months ago or that they were somewhat irregular before that.  So your body is still new to these changes.  If you haven’t started your period in another week and you’re worried, why not confide inyour mom or another grown woman just to reassure yourself and if that doesn’t work, check with your nurse at school.  I’m guessing she will tell you that she hears about late periods a lot.
