Last month my period was only 2 days long this month it is 2 days late I've never had a late period I track it every month. Usually lasts 5 days.?

Do a pregnancy test. If the pregnancy test is negative i dont see a problem, especially if you eventually get you period (within 36 dyas from last period). Rare for cycles to be exactly the same if not on birth control pills. Bleeding longer and heavy is more indicative of a problem. Read more...

One day late for my period afraid to test? Does every woman have a late period about once a year?

Many do. It's common and normal to have a variation in menstrual cyclicity. One day late is meaningless. If you're more than 4 days late, consider the pregnancy test. It's always better to know. Read more...

Late period hi, I recently was late on my period. I was having no symptoms like cramps just back pain. It is consistent every period days before I back pain and intense cramps. I was a few days late and all of a sudden felt a sharp pain in my pelvic area

You . You will not necessarily have the same symptoms every month prior to your period. This sounds like your regular cycle started and the sharp pain you had was normal uterine cramping that occurs before and during menstruation. If your period lasts longer than usual or has been heavy and has not slowed down then you likely have nothing to worry about. If not, please see your doctor. Take care. Read more...
