Last time I had my period it was 34 days ago... I can't really remember the last time it was this late. I've been having quite bad stomach cramps for the past 2 weeks and 2 weeks ago I felt nauseous. Just recently I've been having a lot more discharge... The cramps keep getting worse and it even woke me up last night

I honestly just want my period 😂 I haven't done "it" so it won't be pregnancy.

I know it can be a weird topic by I'm honestly in a lot of pain and I just want it to come before I go away for a weekend in 2 weeks!

Any tips anyone? Even just to make it come. I don't want to phone the doctors just yet as it only is 4 days I suppose but the cramps are very sore.

Thank you

Hi
A late period is classed as between 30 days and 42 days but if it still not come then get in touch with your GP and get seen asap, northing to panic about ok as it could be stress or something similar that causing this. There are many options it can be and best person is your GP okay,

Had you done a pregnancy test to make sure it not this as you said you ain't but till you do a test you can't rule it out as your GP will ask this to. Your ovation period prior to your period due date is around 12 - 16 days before and if you had done things within this time frame then possibility you can be okay, i am only stating facts to you on this.

As a nurse & midwife I would suggest you seek medical advise from your GP soon if your period don't come in next few days. I not diagnosis you as can't do that here as can advise you on things only as best person is your doctor.

My cycle can last anywhere between 26 and 50 days, so I feel your pain. Once, I had a cycle last 68 days and it started christmas eve. The cramping can be deemed a good sign that its on its way I suppose? The body may be breaking down the uterine lining getting ready for it's expulsion?

You mentioned that you haven't had sex, is that recently or ever? If it isn't recently and you have in fact done 'it', I'd recommend getting a pregnancy test anyways just to be sure and to eliminate said possibility.

If the problem sticks around maybe try the gp for advice. They may recommend birth control to help with regulation (don't take the Rigevidon combined pill if its offered, it's rubbish. It made mine so much worse and didn't regulate it at all) but they may offer you the injection or the pill or the implant so there's that too.

But, truth be told, I'm not sure there's anything that you can do to encourage it to come along quicker. I'm sure there's people out there who have theories and remedies of which they have convinced themselves that they work. But it's a cycle, it's a natural bodily function, it's not really controllable unless you have something which can influence your hormone levels (i.e. Pill, injection or implant)

Take some neurofen and paracetamol and have a hot water bottle or hot drink at hand for the cramps. If you get back aches, I'd recommend laying flat on your back with a rolled up towel or pillow under the small of your back with your knees bent (feet flat on floor). I've started doing this and back pain goes away pretty quickly, helps if you have a hot water bottle on your back too (I get nerve pains from my back down into my groin area and then down my thighs, it's good for this too). You could even try the opposite and use a cooler compress like a cold flannel or cloth/ ice pack in a teatowel, both hot and cold helps me rid of my cramps

If the problem persists and nothing changes, go to the gp and ask to see a gynocologist? Maybe it's something internal which is causing the issue? A specialist has more knowledge and experience with this particular topic rather than just your normal general practitioner would have

Hope it gets better x

Oh my gosh I couldn't survive with 68 days! And I haven't had sex ever. I've tried the pill 2 times it's absolutely horrible and made me pretty ill I got all the common symptoms! But thank you so much for the idea with the towel I'll try that! Thank you so much if I haven't got it by next Monday I'll phone the doctors. Thanks x

If you generally have regular periods then make sure to see your doctor if you still don't get it.
I personally have never had a regular period, sometimes it comes after 2 months, sometimes 5, once I had to wait 7 months so I don't have much knowledge on when to actually seek help if you have a normal cycle.
