Take a pregnancy tes: If you have been having unprotected sex and your period is 3 weeks late, you need to start with a pregnancy test. Many things can cause a period to be late including stress, changes in your schedule, diet, weight, or exercise, medications, and diseases like thyroid disease, PCOS,diabetes/insulin resistance, and pituitary or adrenal problems but pregnancy is the most likely. Hope this helps.
