Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like hormone pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is a cause of a missed period, but preg. tests are accurate 3 wk after sex.
