It could be stress or possibly the pregnancy hormones haven’t fully kicked in yet.

You mentioned having a baby—how long ago was that, and are you breastfeeding? The hormones from lactation can inhibit ovulation and make you amenorrhic (not getting a period).

Also, it is possible that you are having an anovulatory cycle (it happens, randomly) or that ovulation was delayed, which would delay menstruation. Have you been sick lately? Or taken a bunch of painkillers (anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and aleve can delay ovulation)?

@confused24: I know this is off topic, but why would the managers at your work make you stop breastfeeding? This doesn’t sound right.

I was wondering the same thing about the managers…

@confused24:

Hey, I don’t know where you live, but if there’s a Planned Parenthood near you, you can get very low cost (or even free) gynecological care.  Even though they’re known for abortion, most of what they do is routine reproductive health care.

If there’s not, there might be other low cost or free clinics around.

@confused24:your manager can’t make you stop breastfeeding. i would talk to your HR department and your EEO representative.

I haven’t had children but I know I can be regular for a long time and then randomly it will change from time to time.  I would say wait a little longer and if it still doesn’t come, you should really look at going to PP to get checked out.  Until then you could just be extra careful in case you are pregnant.
