My period is late.

If you are not sexually active, the delay can be caused by stress, illness, adjusting to a new environment, etc. There can be many causes and most of them are not worrisome. Missing one period is not cause for alarm. If you miss a second cycle, call Student Health Services for an evaluation.

If you are sexually active, in addition to any of the above causes, pregnancy must be a consideration. Please call Student Health Services at X5744 for a confidential appointment.
