There : There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. Also, if you are within 2 years of starting your period, it is very typical to have an irregular cycle. If you continue to not have your period, you should contact your doctor.

Unsure: You may need to go see your gynecologist. Persistent bleeding for more than 10 days requires a check up and possibly some testing to find out why.
