Can happen: Either spontaneously or if you are on hormonal contraception. As always, make sure you are not pregnant. If a recurring issue, then get yourself evaluated

Multiple: There are too many causes to describe here. Hormonal changes, pregnancy, fibroids, polyps, ovulation disorders, bleeding problems etc. You should see a gynecologist to sort this out if it is recurrent. It is not uncommon for women to have maybe one aberrant cycle per year that is relatively unexplainable. Good luck.

Yes, common: Spotting or missing period is quite common during the first couple months of use. It is also still possible to get pregnant during use (chance is low) so double check with a home pregnancy test. Usually after 2-3 months, period should be regular. If not, consult doc. Good luck.

Need more info!: When did you first get your period? Is this the first month you had a 6 week delay? Are your periods usually regular? Every 28 or 30 days? Are you on any form of birth control? Do you take other medications besides clotrimazole and klonopin? Are you taking St. John's wort? have you traveled recently? Big Change in exercise or sleep? Do you have vaginal discharge , odor or pain?
