In brief: Maybe
Lotz of reasons for late menses.
Pregnancy, stress, low thyroid, pituitary tumor. Are you on birth control pills or hormones or other meds? How old are you? Are menses usually regular and is this a one time event or a regular thing? Need these questions answered to determine if a late menses is serious or not.
