There are a few reasons why you might feel like your period is coming but it doesn’t. One reason could be that you’re experiencing premenstrual syndrome (PMS). PMS is a group of symptoms that occur in the days leading up to your period. Many women experience some form of PMS, and for some, it can be quite severe. Symptoms of PMS include bloating, mood swings, irritability, fatigue, breast tenderness, and headaches. If you’re experiencing any or all of these symptoms in the days leading up to your expected period but your period never arrives, it’s likely that you’re just experiencing a particularly bad case of PMS.
Another possibility is that you have an irregular menstrual cycle. This means that the length of time between periods varies from month to month. If your cycle is irregular, it can be hard to predict when exactly your next period will arrive. So even if you’re sure that your last period was four weeks ago, there’s still a chance that your next one won’t come for another week or two (or even longer). This can be frustrating if you’re trying to plan around an upcoming event (like a vacation) but just don’t know when exactly to expect your next period.
