Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez stated that not only women have periods, but trans and nonbinary men do too. This was in response to a comment she made earlier about "menstruating people".
Ocasio Cortez tweeted "Trans men and non-binary persons can also menstruate," along with a screenshot from a Daily Mail headline saying: "AOC calls females'menstruating persons' while explaining the female anatomy."

"Some women don't menstruate because they have survived cancer or need a hysterectomy. The GOP is protecting patriarchal ideas that women are more valuable than uterus holders," continued the New York Democrat.
It's not just for women! It's possible for trans men and non-binary women to menstruate.
Women may also not menstruate due to a variety of reasons, such as surviving cancer or needing a hysterectomy.

Two weeks late for your period can happen for anyone, for anyone with a menstrual cycle. It can happen for stress, for any diet change, or for no reason at all. You don't have six weeks.
