Just because you skip your period doesn't mean your pregnant. It could also mean you have an irregular cycle (which most girls have).

Yes you can skip a period and not be pregnant. When you first start your periods, it is common for them to be irregular and for the first two or three years you will probably skip a few. You can also skip periods due to stress, alot of excercise and probably many other things.

Yes, you can skip your period and not be pregnant. There are other explanations besides pregnancy like being stressed a lot and an irregular cycle.

Yeah your probably not pregnant! unless youve had sex or something, then i would take a test! Normally a girl's period doesn't regulate untill 1-2 years after they're first one! Good luck!

its aight, you dont have to be pregnant. but if you've had sexual intercourse then you should do a pregnancy test just to be sure. but you can skip a period by being ill or even for no reason. i skipped two in a row and i knew it was impossible for me to be pregnant (i'm a virgin) i went to a docter and she wasn't sure why it happened. so sometimes you just miss it for no reason.

MakalahLea answered Monday February 14 2005, 6:28 pm:
Stress, poor eating habits, lack of physical activity, too much physical activity, illnesses and changes in hormonal levels can prevent periods. When I first started mine, I bled for a few days then didnt have mine again until over 6 months later. I have a good friend who is almost 26, perfectly healthy, who only has a period every 3-4 months. It all depends on your body's makeup and how well you take care of yourself.

If you have had unprotected sex recently, go see your OBGYN and have a pregnancy test done, or go to a free clinic to have it done. To be on the safe side, request that STD blood test screening be done as well. There are some STD's that can interfere with a womans period.

Having regular checkups with your OBGYN can prevent many problems (like this) from occuring. Many times, with parental consent, a doctor will choose to put the young woman on birth control pills to regulate the hormones that are constant. That is an option that you can discuss with your doctor. It really worked for my sister and will usually work in any young woman who has a history of menstral problems or who has those problems present in her family medical history.

Always call your OBGYN for any questions like this that you want answered. If you cannot speak with a doctor, there are always trained nurses present to help you. If you do not have an OBGYN, get one. They are a huge benefit.

Best Wishes!

LostAngel answered Monday February 14 2005, 5:59 pm:
Yeah..I think if you play a physical activity it comes less often. Talk to your mom/ sister/ aunt or an older female and ask them. Such maybe your gym teacher if she is a women or something? Get what I'm saying?

-need anything else feel free to drop one-

SugaHigh answered Monday February 14 2005, 5:58 pm:
no thats not the only explanation. Sometimes people have irregular periods where they skip a month or it comes a little late. Dont get too scared. If you arent sexually active you might not have anyting to worry about. Talk to your doctor or get a pregnancy test just to make sure and watch for signs.

hope i helped

No, actually if you play sports a lot and run a lot it can actually make you have your period less often. Also you might just be late. But if you have havent even had your period for a whole yerar yet dont worry your body is still trying to regulate itself. ypour body doesnt have a calender. But if you have had sex recently id buy a pregnancy test and make sure. Good luck.

Periods can be skipped due to an increase in physical activity, change in diet, sleep patterns, and stress.
