Started my period 6 days late, what does that mean

Report as

Nothing really. It's normal for periods to come a little late and sometimes it might not even come at all, especially if you have just started your periods. If you have been have been having regular periods for a while and they stop you should see a gynecologist.

Sometimes periods are irregular (and they will come early, late or anywhere in between), so it doesn't necessarily mean anything. If you are consistently irregular, or are having any other abnormal symptoms, you should probably call your ob-gyn for a check up.

It could be from stress, exercising more than usual or it could be a more serious health problem. To be irregular once in a while is considered normal. If it happens a lot, see your ob/gyn.
Also, you said it's 6 days late: is it 6 days late and finally started, or 6 days and counting? If you haven't started yet, there's the obvious answer for a late period- pregnancy. I'd recommend doing a home pregnancy test if you haven't yet! Good luck!

i was six days late, and then i started my period with a brown discharge that was a big clump. but no blood in it just brown idk. and then after that i had a very light period and i normally have it very heavy the first day im on it. and i am a very regular flow since the age of 13. so it scared me b/c i had a baby 3 years ago when i was 20 and i thought id be pregnant again. but i have never experienced this before and iv been experiencing the back pain and cramps which i never have before during my period. so if you have any answers please help.

I think this might probably mean that you have an irregular period this time round. Stress can make one miss a period and does not necessarily mean you are pregnant but if you are worried take a pregnancy test and see a doctor to confirm this.

It means nothing your period could be syncing with another woman or your irregular.

Is it possible to sync with another women's?

With our powers combined.

Yes. It's fairly common in college dorms. I know it sounds strange but it happened in my dorm with all the girls who were not on birth control. That was quite a few years ago though when kids weren't having sex so much at such a young age.

Brianna and Arch are right. If you spend a lot of time with other females this will happen

What's even weirder, is I used to have several female friends on a forum that I used to frequent, and over the course of a couple years, we would all start within a few days of each other. I always knew that women who hung out together were often in sync, but some of these women lived on the other side of the world. It was definitely an interesting phenomenon, but it happened too often to be completely coincidental.

I dont think it means anything. If u got ur first period in the past 1-2 years its probably just ur period still regulating.
