If your period was late last month can it be late the next month?

In brief: Yes

If your period was normally regular, and now it is late, make sure that you check a pregnancy test.
If the test is negative, then you are likely not ovulating regularly, and yes, your next cycle will seem to be delayed as well. This is a great reason to visit your ob/gyn and discuss causes and treatments for irregular cycles!
