It could mean a number of things. Menstrual cycles can often

change making your period late or early. Hormon levels in your body

can make your period late. Sometimes you can even miss periods

entirely for no reason at all. The most likely cause of a late

period if you are sexually active with one or no form of birth

control or contraceptive and are of young healthy childbearing age

is pregnancy.
