    Hey don't worry you probably have nothing to be worried about, have you lost any or very much weight recently? That could mess with your cycle? How old are you and how long have you been getting periods? as sometimes in the first year or 2 it can become irregular every now and again for no apparent reason. Other than that hormone imbalances (which are usually nothing to worry about) can cause irregular periods. If it becomes an ongoing problem that you want to sort out you could try going on a hormonal birth control (even if you're not sexual active) to try to regulate your hormones and periods.

    Have you been under stress or feeling depressed lately? This can cause you to skip periods.

    If you're a virgin, there's absolutely no possibility you're pregnant though so don't worry about that.

    I know it's easier said than done but not having a period for two months isn't strange at all. It's probably down to the stress. I think once it's been 6 months since your last period there's usually a cause for concern but if your worried go and see your GP. Also there is no way your pregnant if your a virgin

    My friend told me she hasn't had her period in a while and she did seem quite stressed because of the exams, it could be that. I'll speak to her, hopefully she actually has nothing to worry about

    Lots of things can cause your period to be delayed if not pregnancy:

    - Stress (sometimes you might be subconsciously stressed and not realise it - if you've got exams coming up, that's likely to be a factor. I'm almost 24 and I've had periods since I was 10 but mine always mess up around exam time), anxiety or depression.

    - Even worrying about the fact you've not had a period on time can make it even later, annoyingly

    - Change in diet.

    - Weight loss or weight gain (particularly if it is a dramatic change within a short period of time - but this is normally associated with conditions like anorexia).

    - Lack of sleep.

    - Hormonal changes - like someone else said, if you're still young your body could be going through changes behind the scenes and that can delay a period.
