16 year old with delayed periods. Had protected intercourse. What could be the reason?

hi, i am 16 and last month i had my period then i got drunk and 2 days after i had finished my first period, i started a second period, i have asked why on Google and it says this is normal to have two periods in a calender month, however this month i am late by about a week. Why would this be? my diet and sleeping patterns have not changed, i am also not on the pill or any medication but i am in a relationship but we use protection all the time. It could just be me worrying but is there any chance me having a double period last month has interfered with this months period?

Hi,
At your age, it is common to have occasional irregularities in the menstrual cycles owing to disrupted ovulation secondary to the failing hormonal balance as it tries to get on track. You are right in thinking that two periods in one month may have caused the delay at present, but, things need to be substantiated through clinical evaluation by a specialist and investigation, more so because you are sexually active using barrier contraception which has a higher failure rate. Please get an assessment of the serum beta-hCG titres and also a trans-vaginal sonogram to clarify the situation. Hope this helps.

Hi Doctor, I m a 15 year old girl worried about my periods... my last period was around 5 weeks ago and I m starting to get a little bit worried. I have been in a long term relationship with my boyfriend and we decided to have sex around 3 weeks ago, we used protection and I m sure I can t be pregnant... but there is always that chance I could be. I was thinking my period might be late because of recent stress with exams but I can t be that sure; is there anyway I can tell that I will have my period? Thank you

I m 34 years old, generally healthy, have hypothyroidism which I am taking synthroyd for (for a few years now). My period is late, and I feel really bloated and have diarrhea for the past week. I had a 40 day cycle a few months ago, and typically have a 30-33 day cycle, I m currently on day 36 and no period. so I m not sure if it has something to do with my medication, if it s age and I m going thru early peri menopause, or pregnancy. I had protected intercourse a couple of weeks ago....any ideas?

Hi, I am a 26 year old married woman. I have been having quite normal periods for years now and since January this year, it was following a perfect 28 days cycle. I am worried as this time its delayed by a day. Though I was sexually active, we were using protection. Is it possible that I am pregnant also because, I found a thick white discharge from my vagina last day?
