What do U consider to be a late period?

Seriously? A day after it was suppose to begin? Or a whole week? Some people just make me wonder.

  • I give it 7-10 days before I take a pregnancy test. My cycle is pretty regular but a couple of months ago it was off by over a week, so I went to buy a test. While I was in the store I had to go to the bathroom, and guess who showed up? Aunt Flo! ;-)

  • A week. My period when I am off bc is not always 25 or 28 days, it's somewhere in the middle. Most women's are that way. That's why doctors say you're not late until you're a week late.

  • I'm currently 12 days late, and my doctor told me they don't consider women to be late until they are at least two weeks late. That's how long I have to wait before they'll give me a blood test. Good luck!

  • Before having kids my cycle was almost always 28 or 29 days so if I hit 31 then I got worried. Since having the kids though my cycles are 29-35 days so I don't worry until I hit like 36-37 days.
