Whats Happening To Me. Help
Hi there

I was due for my periods on the 6 of December, but didn't get it. I did a test on the 10 of December and it was negative. My husband and I had intercourse on the 12 of December, and then on the 13 of December I got my periods. I usually get my periods for 5 five days, but this time it was full 7 days. I have not been on any contraceptive for a long time, and have been to my gynae before we decided to have a baby - no problems there. Please help, I'm starting to get worried.

I assume that your periods are usually completely regular. The occasional late period is not uncommon. It may mean that you did not ovulate in this cycle. This could be due to a number of things, including stress, changes in diet, etc.
