Please help.

I am 18 year old female, I had protected sex with my boyfriend for the first time since march on the first of december my period should have started on the 8th of december but it hasnt started yet I have no symptoms and have had a virus for a few days just before and on the due date of my period.
Could I be pregnant or could it be because I have become ill that I am late, how long should I now expect my period to come after being ill
I am really worried about being pregnant.

  • You should take a home pregnancy test if you are that worried about it. There are alot of reason why you could be late the fact that you came down with a cold, also just the stress you're putting on your body by worrying, but it is also not uncommon for woman to miss a period all together eventhough it may sound strange. Although if you are missing your period alot and know you are not pregnant you should visit your doctor it could be a problem that may need to be addressed with medication (example: thyroid condition). Hope this helps.
