What is a missed period? You get it a few days late or you don't get it at all that month? Can you get the period after 31 days in your cycle?

Yes: A missed period is when you would go about 54 - 60 days between cycles. If you are a few days late, that can be normal. Due to hormonal fluctuations.

In reviewing: 'new choice' it appears to be a standard home pregnancy test (not an early pregnancy test). Therefore it is best to wait until you miss your period and to use your first morning void.

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, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active.
