Yes


Pregnancy may be one of the more common reasons of a missed period, but certainly not the only reason. Hormonal imbalance either stemming from the ovary or from the brain (hypothalamus and pituitary) are other potential causes. Uterine problems can also affect bleeding. Skipped cycles on occasion can happen, but require evaluation if persistent.
