Many possibilities: Are you using sexually active, using anything for contraception, and if so , what? Has this ever happened before? When was your last period before this? A miscarriage, an infection, thyroid disease, diabetes, contraceptive problems, stress, dieting, medications, etc. Can throw periods off.
