I AM 22 YEARS OLD AND STILL HAVE NOT GOTTEN MY PERIOD. I GOT IT TWICE. ONCE WHEN I WAS 16 AND ONCE WHEN I WAS 17 FOR ABOUT A WEEK THEN SINCE THEN THERE HAS BEEN NOTHING. I don't HAVE ANY ABDOMINAL PAINS OR CRAMPS OR ANYTHING. COULD I JUST BE THAT LATE OF A BLOOMER?
IS THERE SOME SORT OF OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION I CAN TAKE TO REGULATE OR SPEED UP MY PERIOD?

You should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your period cannot start that late. You should be examined to exclude causes of amenorrhea (e.g. polycystic ovarian syndrome).
Please see a doctor as soon as possible. Let me know how it goes?
