It depends.: Because menstrual cycles are influenced by normal fluctuations in hormones etc, almost every woman will have a late period from time to time. Occasionally a late period is caused by an early failed pregnancy. This would explain both a late period & pg symptoms. Even otherwise otherwise healthy women with regular cycles might not achieve a pregnancy right a way. Don't be discouraged.
