My last period was on the 26 July.. So technically speaking it should come on 26 July. But my period does not come every 4 weeks, it usually comes every 5-6 weeks though.. Is this normal? But it\\\'s the 16 Sept now.. ever since 26 July my period hasn\\\'t come yet >_< I\\\'m definitely not pregnant, because I\\\'m a virgin. I\\\'m really worried now. I\\\'m 16 this year going 17.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
During initial time, you will get ‘anovulatory cycles’ (without egg release from ovary) due to which periods will be irregular and you might have long gaps between your periods.
Once you start having ‘ovulatory cycles’ (with egg release), then the periods and bleeding will get more regularized.
You should consider getting an examination done by gynecologist/healthcare provider to make sure there are no other underlying problems.
Take care.
