First of all, how late are you? There are a number of reasons our periods can be off schedule, like stress, a change in your routine like a new job with different work hours or a vacation, being sick, even with a common cold, starting a new medication or changing the dose of one you already take, a major change in your weight or starting some weird new diet, exercising excessively, especially if you're not used to it and simply miscalculating when to expect your period.

These are the most common reasons our periods are late but if you're on birth control pills, some of them can cause women to skip entire cycles, which some women enjoy while others spend that time freaking out.

If you are concerned, go buy a home pregnancy test and then you'll know for sure.

Even if you are on birth control, your partner should still use a condom to protect both of you from STD's.

Don’t Panic! Is it normal to miss a period, first thing that comes in mind when your period is late, it isn't the only reason menstruation might be delayed. There are many factors such as Major Weight Loss or Excessive Exercise, Stress, A Thyroid Irregularity, Your Birth Control, Premature Menopause, change in your routine and many more that may contribute to the disruption of a woman's menstrual cycle. still if you are in doubt then you may take healthcare professional advice.
