Either: It is common if under stress or on different medication to have irregular cycle. If sexually active and late, the most likely cause is pregnancy--should do a home urine pregnancy test to check.

Pregnancy: This could be pregnancy or stress either can change the timing of your periods. I would recommend a pregnancy test and despite its result if you are concerned with pregnancy or stress see if your health professional can offer you some guidance. We are here not just with meds in hand but advice for daily living. Wish you well.
