My period is late and I am scared, what should I do?


Answer by  pixlove (58)

Wait another week or so. Sometimes period's are late and everything is okay. If you are a teenager, confide in an adult you trust or go to a Planned Parenthood for help and support. Otherwise, take a home pregnancy test. If it is negative, see your doctor for further testing.

You should buy a pregnancy test from the grocery store, or get one done at the doctor's office. It is important to find out as early as possible whether or not you are pregnancy so you will have plenty of time to decide what to do about it.

Take a pregnancy test as soon as you can and depending on the results, make a doctor's appointment. Other complications aside from pregnancy can cause late periods such as stress, diet, ovarian cysts, etc. It's best to mention this a your yearly gyno appointment.

You should call your gynecologist and make an appointment. They can run a pregnancy test, and if that comes back negative, they can start checking for other problems. Another thing to consider is stress. If you've been under alot of pressure lately, or have been experiencing a difficult situation, your body could be suffering.

First, go to the drug store and take a pregnancy test if that is a possibility. If it is positive, wait a bit, take another. If it's positive, go see your doctor so he can confirm this. It will be okay. There are options out there either way you go.

The first thing you should do is to take a pregnancy test to rule that out. If it comes back positive you have many options and things to consider. You should make an appointment with an OBGYN to discuss them. There are many at home pregnancy test available on the market, including First Responce.
