This is a great reason to visit your ob/gyn and discuss causes and treatments for irregular cycles! ...Read more

Irregular Cycles: Irregular or delayed menses are usually caused by pregnancy or not ovulating. If the home pregtest is negative then likely not pg but blood test better (consider). If you did not ovulate, then it could be by chance or you might be changing from regular to irregular for ovulation and menses. Perhaps a change in weight (up or down), medications, stress, or even diet supplements. See doc for tests. ...Read more

My period came 1 week late last month. When should it come this month? It has been like clockwork starting on the 5th of every month and ending on the 9th. Last month it didn't start till the 13th and ended on the 17th.

There: There are many reasons why a woman's period would be off a little one month. They could have had a particularly stressful month. They could have had an illness. They could also have been pregnant. One study showed that 50% of women who are at risk for pregnancy in a given month actually do get pregnant but have a miscarriage so early that it is perceived as a normal period or just a few days late. If a woman is not pregnant and has a longer cycle than normal, most of the time they will reset their cycle starting from that date. In other words, if your period normally starts around the 5th and it came on the 13th, then next month it will come around the 13th. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Depends: Other than the late period last month, if your periods are regular, you are late. If you had unprotected sex since your last period you should do a pregnancy test. If it is negative repeat it in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.

Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Not necessarily: As long as the timing between periods is similar and not off in time by less than a week, I doubt there is a problem. My guess is that you normally has heavy menstrual periods and have been blessed with a shorter and perhaps lighter one this time!

Cycle: I wouldn't worry at this point. It may take several months to determine what your new cycle will be like off birth control pills. Continue to monitor your cycles like you are doing. The birth control hormones are all out of your body at this point. If no period in a week, I would recommend you check a pregnancy test if you have been sexually active this cycle. ...Read more
