In brief: Check a test

There are many things that can cause your period to be late but,if you have been having unprotected sex, the first thing to do is check a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative.
Some medications including contraceptives can cause this too. If the tests are negative, see your PCP or Gyn for a complete history, exam, and appropriate testing to find the cause. Hope this helps.
