    My period is five days late, and for the past five days I've been feeling super gross, just really achy and kind of light-headed. There's no chance that I'm pregnant (I'm a very single lesbian haha)

    Any ideas of what it might be? If it continues I'll make a doctors appointment, but I'd like to have some idea of what could be going on before I do that.

    Your hormones could just be a bit wacky this month. It happens sometimes and your period will probably just surprise you one day soon so make sure you're prepared!

    Are you on the pill? Not necessarily for contraception, but for period regulation. Sometimes that can cause weird unexpected side effects.

    Yeah maybe, I did start college last month so maybe its just stress from that (I struggle with anxiety anyways). I'm not on the pill, wish I was because then that's an obvious cause

    Thanks!

    Yeah being stressed can make your period go away sometimes. You can always go to your doctor and say that your anxiety is messing with your cycle, so being on the pill will help it regulate and avoid any unwanted surprises. Deffo worth it. I'm on the pill for horrific cramps and I get my period the same time every month and I know exactly when so it's really helpful.
