28 days late from my last period ?

User Profile
I'm 28 days late from my last period dated 12th October. Still not having my periods. Today is 10th dec. Also there was no sexual activity since my last period. In fact last sexual activity was around 8/9th October that too protected sex. Is it possible that I'm pregnant ?? Or is just some hormones?? I'm 21 yrs old.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the pregnancy status and cause for absent periods without examining you and going ahead with getting further evaluation to look for the underlying cause (if pregnancy gets ruled out). If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy and consider visiting your gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be needed to look for the underlying cause for your absent periods. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate them. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
