  • Sometimes kids just miss a period and it's a fluke, you know? It's very common. Most women (younger and older) miss one period a year on average. I wouldn't worry about it much,

  • Possible,but not likely....Take a test to make sure. She is most likely having a hormonal change associated with puberty that is causing the late period. Is she on the pill?

  • You should get her on bc is my first thought. There is nothing wrong with that. what would be wrong would to know your dd is having sex and not getting her on something. I love the depo shot, b/c you won't forget to take a pill at the same time every day. Cause lets face it most teens won't remember. So please get her on something!!

    To answer your ? She is most likely just missing one. Most of us miss one time to time, especially teens who aren't completely thorgh puberty yet. So I would say she is just normal.

  • Glad to hear you have a close relationship--that's a blessing in itself. So, check it out the missed period with your family doctor. Rather safe than sorry and, at the same visit, ask for birth control for her. You'll both feel better knowing after the doctor's appointment and getting the results, and she will feel that you want her protected out there in this big world and care enough to get her on something ASAP!!!

  • periods are erratic both durring the teen years and durring menopaus. She probably just missed one. If she has started a new sport(or been excersiceing alot),lost some weight,or put on a lot, or is just stressed out it could throw it off. Also if you are off(due to reasons of your own) she could be off because females that spend a lot of time together cycles can sometimes sycronise(sp). Id wait a bit and then have her take a test. If you don't want to go there, bring her to the doctor...they will want to rule that out and it is a lot less offensive coming for the doctor vs mom.

  • If you have such a close relationship with your daughter, than why is she having sex at 14. She doesn't need a friend, she needs a mother. Someday she'll look back and resent you for not being more of a mother and stopping her from having sex a such a young age. If my daughter behaves this way, she will end up in boarding school.

  • Don't panic yet. There are lots of factors that can play a roll in your daughter being late for her period. Sometimes emotions such as stress can make you late. Give it a week and if she still hasn't started you should give her a pregnancy test. She also should go to Planned Parenthood and get information about safe intercourse.


    Honestly at age 14 she shouldn't be having sex. She shouldn't be going places where there isn't parental supervision. 

     If you are as close to your daughter as you say you are, then talk to her about the responsibility of being sexually active. Double barrier is safe but abstinence at her age is best!

    Be a Mom. She has plenty of friends but only one mom.  You are raising the adult she is going to be.  Teach her to enjoy being a teen.  There is plenty of time in the future to be an adult.


    Best of luck

  • More than likely she isnt preggers but u should take a test to make sure. it could be just the stress of thinking that she is or just nature taking its course i had my son at 17 and didnt have a period for 4 yrs even though i was haveing sex so dont worry about it
