Late ovulation: It could be that you either did not ovulate or ovulated late this cycle. If you ovulated later, then your period will come later. If you don't get your period in another week, repeat the pregnancy test or see your doctor or both.

Late period: It's hard to say why it happens, but sometimes we are just late for our period. Things like medications, stress, travel, changes in your weight, can all cause a late period. If your pregnancy test is negative, repeat it once per week until you get your period, to be safe. If no period for a whole month, i would see your gyn doc to test for hormonal conditions that can cause irregularity.

Depo is long-acting: Depomedroxyprogesterone acetate (Depo) has a prolonged duration of action. Levels stay steady in your body for about 3 months and then gradually decline. In some women it can stay in the system for almost 9 months after a single injection delaying return to fertility and resumption of the menstrual cycle. Absence of a period should prompt a pregnancy test also if indicated.

No matter what: No matter what happens with their menses, women on birth control pills should stick to taking the pills as scheduled to reliably suppress ovulation and to, possibly after a few cycles, become regular. If that does not happen and remains a nuisance, a pill with a different composition of estrogen and progestin may make the difference.
