Irregular menses: It sounds like your menstrual cycle is irregular, so your ovulation date is irregular also. If you've been sexually active and have now missed your period by a week, it's time for a home pregnancy test. They're easy to get at the drug store. Best wishes.

Possible: The change in your period is almost certainly because you forgot to change your patch. It is possible but not likely that you are pregnant. Check a pregnancy test to be sure. For the future, I suggest to my patients that they set reminders in their phones to help them remember.

Irregular: This can be quite normal. Not unusual that the menstrual cycle varies. This can depend upon stress, hormonal changes, weight changes. If the irregularities persist over a few cycles, then you may want to see your gynecologist, but nothing alarming in a week early bleeding at this point.
