Ovulation timing: If you miss your period, it's difficult to time ovulation. If you're notaking hormones or birth control pills, missing a period means that you're either pregnant or didn't ovulate on time. You shoudl do a pregancy test and, if negative, see your doctor if your period doesn't start.
