A bit confused.

I am sorry if this is off topic, feel free to delete if necessary.

So I am 20, not having sex, not on birth control, have not lost any weight, not stressed, have a history of regular periods, not working out excessively, etc. Yet, this month my period is absent. Well, not even really absent; I have been "spotting" a teeny bit. I thought that my period was about to start about four days ago, I started using my cup, and I have had nothing but very minimal blood and some tissue or mucus in the cup each day.

I don't know if any of you will be able to shed any insight on this situation but I thought I would try here before anything else. I mean, is it common for a woman with my current status or whatever to suddenly miss a period? The only thing that I can think of that has changed recently is that I started using my divacup last month. That wouldn't affect my menstruation at all though, would it?

Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.
