Do you mean: Do you mean that you have been having periods and this one is late or that you haven't started having periods at all. These are 2 very different questions. If this ia a late period, pregnancy is possible but if you are 17 and haven't started having periods at all that could be more serious and you need to be seen and checked out for the possible cause. Hope this helps. ...Read more
