Yes it can. Discontinuing the patch will likely change your regular cycle, usually by delaying the onset of menses right after going off it. What appears to be a "missed" period is likely a long-delayed one. Yes it definitely can. You can have irregular periods for 3 months AFTER stopping the patch.

Being late for your period doesn't always signal pregnancy, it could be stressed induced etc. The instructions for the patch state you will get your period anytime during the week off.. so it may just be late in coming. The instructions state that if you miss your period, but haven't had any patches put on late, to go on to your next cycle of patches, but if you had some patches that were put on late, or miss a second period that you should contact your doctor to be tested for pregnancy! ~pawsalmighty you can always take a test and see if you are or not.

Does a missed period after getting off the pill mean your pregnant home test was negative after 1 week late?

Hi, No this doesn't mean you're pregnant but it is possible. When you stop birth control it is not unheard of for a woman to miss her period. After stopping the pill you will notice a withdrawal bleed. This withdrawal bleed usually arrives with 2 weeks of stopping the pill but can arrive as late as 4 weeks after stopping the pill. It is possible you tested too early. Wait a week and re-test. Good luck.
