Dear When Pigs Fly,
I wouldn’t worry about it if I were you. How old were you when you first started having your period? Is your period usually predictable each month or have you experienced late or skipped periods in the past?
You’ll find, over time, that many different factors can affect the regularity of your period. Stress and sickness, in particular, can wreak havoc on your body’s natural rhythms. If you go on a diet or have a major shift in your diet or if you start going out with a new boyfriend or break up with a boyfriend, the major change in nutrition or emotions can display themselves by making your period come late or otherwise be irregular. Sports & exercise can also have a factor, as can worrying.
To become pregnant, you would need to be in a place where a guy’s live sperm can swim into your vagina and do their magic. Because that hasn’t happened, something else must be going on which is causing your period to be late. The most important thing right now is to relax, calm down, and stop worrying.
Best of luck!
