    Ok I know that I probably post a lot but even at 21 I still have a lot of questions. Yesterday was the fourth day that I was late for my period. But this morning I got up and I started and it seemed like this time its a little worse than my regular painful period. This time I can barely stand the pain. It hurts so bad I feel like I could vomit. I'm dizzy and I can barely get out of bed. It hurts so bad I can't even think straight.How come it was this late? I don't understand why. I don't know what to do about this pain. Its hurt pretty bad before but nothings working anymore. The regular over-the-counter meds do nothing to help the pain. Any advice is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Periods can be late for a multitude of reasons, the most common is ovulating later than usual.

    As for the pain, it may be time to see a doctor. If it's so bad it's making you dizzy and wanting to vomit, that's not normal.
