Patient : I start traing for cross country every year a month in advance. i have been running for seven years now and this year so far i have ran for a month and a half. i am late with my period by one week this month and i need to know if that is normal? i play other sports in the spring so its not just a once a year thing. i am having sex and i stopped my birth control last month simply because i forgot and we don't use condoms but we are very careful. i want to get back on my birth control but im afraid if i am pregnant it will affect the baby. i am 18 years old and would love an answer to my questions please and thank you
