I would say most likely not. You should take a pregnancy test if you have been sexually active anytime in the last month.

any kind of sudden change in your diet can make your period stop. stress can also make it stop. the irony is stress over missing your period can actually make a delayed period skip insted of being delayed. Once you rule out the chance of pregnancy or sickness its more than likely stress or a sudden diet change if your periods are usually normalI would worry too much as long as you have it next month. Its also normal to miss one for no reason at all.

YES if your depriveing yourself to much or following the Atkins diet then it will make perfect sense. The Atkins diet is not good for you and it really can hurt your period I recommend stopping the Atkins Diet..

Low-carb diets, including Atkins, are very healthy and more likely to regulate your menstrual cycles than cause menstrual cycles irregularity or missed periods - low-carb is often used as a treatment of conditions such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, when followed correctly it is beneficial to health.

Low-Carb diets involve reducing carbs and increasing healthy fats in your diet, which is very healthy. Any dietary change can impact on your menstrual cycle, but as long as your diet is healthy it's not a problem. It's more likely that your period is late or skipped due to something else such as hormonal imbalance if you're in your teens, ill health, stress, or possible pregnancy.

Could a low-carb diet cause you to have two periods in one month?

If you've never had any problems with your cycle before starting this diet, it could well be linked. Changes in your diet, especially a drastic change, can affect your body in a number of ways, and of course, your period can be affected too. Perhaps going back to a balanced diet, and if it doesn't clear, I would most certainly say go and get it checked out by your doctor.
