It is possible>: Mid cycle bleeding is associated with ovulation. If you are sexually active without contraception then a pregnancy test is in order. If you are using contraception then pregnancy is less likely.

Maybe: If you have had unprotected sex then yes you could be pregnant. Mid cycle spotting not likely the reason for late period but pregnancy is. Check home pregnancy test with first morning urine. If neg, repeat in 7-10 days. If both neg, unlikely you are pregnant. Fibroids not associated with late period. Can be associated with heavy bleeding or pain with period. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, I would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals.
