I've always had a regular 28/29 day cycle never in my life missed a period or been this late (except while i was pregnant) after i had my baby 9 months ago i was back on the same cycle.


I dont know exactly but im almost 2 weeks late? (did have plenty of unprotected sex) have done 2 tests and both negative. So im guessing im really not pregnant?

what other things cause this ?? anything to worry about??

Stress, underlying health issues.

Stress may have delayed ovulation which automatically makes af late.

I would wait another week and test again. If neg go see the dr and make sure everything is ok.

Good luck

I've had that lots of times and my cycles are very regular too.

Anything can cause it - stress, hormone imbalances, other health issues. With mine it was usually stress.

You don't actually miss a period, you ovulate later than usual.

As others have said, stress, illness, just one of those things. There can be many things that can cause a random irregular cycle. If you keep getting negative pregnancy tests though and no period you can always go to your GP and ask them give you a blood test (making sure they include progesterone).

No ideas, but I was in the same boat as you about 2 months ago. Was 10 days late, and then what did come (tmi) was full of clots.

If your baby is only 9 months old it could be hormone related especially if you are breast feeding. My cycle was all over the place from then it returned when DD turned one until she weaned at 21 months.

I had the exact same thing happen last cycle.  3 pregnancy tests all revealed a BFN and my period eventually arrived 2 weeks later than normal.  

I have made a note of the date in my diary of the date my last period arrived and will just keep an eye on it.  If the same pattern continues for the next couple of cycles then it is off to the doctor.  

Have no idea what caused it, but I suspect stress.
