Late period: It's hard to say why it happens, but sometimes we are just late for our period. Even if it's never happened to you before, it could be happening now. 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
