Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc. Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period if sexually active (do preg. test).
