Should I worry if my period is five days late?

Answer

If your period is late, and your cycle is always normal, then it would be wise to test for pregnancy and see your physician if you are sexually active, no matter the results. If you are not sexually active, make an appointment to see your physician to discuss the absence of your period. An absent cycle is not always cause for worry, but it is always best to seek medical advice to determine the cause.
