It is normal because so many things can make a period become irregular. It could be stress, getting sick, and your diet.
So I don't think you have anything to worry about. If you become concerned, then talk to your mother. If you still don't get it after awhile, then she could take you to the gynecologist and they can figure out why you haven't gotten your period.

But I don't think you have anything to worry about.

There are many reasons for missing a period other than being pregnant. Among them are stress, illness, change in diet or activities and other things. If you are on or have taken antibiotic medication this could throw off your cycle as well. A women's menstrual cycle is delicately balanced and it does not take much to throw it off, especially in a young women as you.

Stress is the leading cause of missed periods. Given the time of year it is, with school finals and everything that goes into studying for them. I would not be surprised that you are or have been stressed by this and your normal routine has also been altered as you study or studied for finals.

NOTE: Your period is nothing sexual. It is a normal bodily function. Yes parents first thoughts may be that you have been sexually active if you go to them for advice with something like this. They are the ones, especially your mom who will know what to tell you better than any of us for she knows you best and she like you has the same bodily function.

What you do to avoid the awkward or fly of the handle response is you say: "Mom I have to ask you a question but you need to know I am still a virgin" or Mom I have to ask you a question but you need to know I am not sexually active and my periods is late what could be wrong." You of course do this some place private where it is only you and your mom as I'm sure you don't want to be overheard by any brother or sister you may have.

I will also let you in on a secret. Most moms are very aware of their daughters menstrual cycle. My mother would look for evidence of my sister period by checking the waste paper basket in the bathroom my sister and I shared.

I'm fairly certain that if your mom is like most mothers she is aware your period is late. If she were concerned she would have said something to you, will be asking you about it shortly or waiting for you to come to her.

Why not take the worry away from mom and avoid the embarrassment for both of you by having mom come and ask you. Go to her and ask her what to do about a late period not related to sexual activity.

At 13, you're relatively new to having periods. It can take up to the age of 17 for them to become regular. Don't worry, its normal. Sometimes people can miss a month.
