I was supposed to have my period today but I haven’t gotten yet. I’ve had cramps and the regular symptoms for my period but I haven’t gotten it yet.
@zat– Good morning and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. When I had my period and this happened it drove me crazy, especially if I had had sex. Since it's only been a day I would suggest giving it a week and if you've had sex then buy a home test kit and see what it shows.
Are you having any other symproms other than cramps and bloating?
@zat How confusing for you, right? Sometimes if we have a increase in stress, or there is a change in our daily life, our period is affected. Not feeling well, or a lot of new activity can play a part also.
How are you feeling today? Have you always had very regular cycles?
Hello @zat and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! We are happy you are here. It's been a few days, so I wanted to check in and see how you were doing? Did you get your period? I have been through similar experiences and the more I stressed, the later it came. I felt so frustrated. Here was a good read about how and why periods can be late, hopefully you will find it interesting: https://www.healthline.com/health/how-late-can-a-period-be#stress
Let us know how you are doing.
@zat– Just checking in on you to see if things straightened out for you or if you needed to see your doctor?
My period came for those still wondering, it just came very late at night on that same day
