Late with period : At 19 yrs old, you should always practice safe sex and use some type of birth control. That being said, you need to see your pop (primary care doctor) to check your blood and confirm you are not pregnant. You could also have a cold which can cause similar symptoms drink plenty of fluids do not take a lot of pain meds until you know you are not pregnant. Good luck! in good health!

Just in case: See your pcp to get a blood pregnancy test. Blurred vision can be due to: hormonal changes [dry eyes (most common) {from a variety of causes, mgd, blepharitis}, need for new glasses (refractive error); diabetes, headaches/ migraines; rare issues (increased intracranial pressure/ papilledema); an eye md can take a look under the microscope to see the cause. If persists, see your eyemd. Asap.
