  • It has never been late while on birth control before and it was due Sunday. I know you can get pregnant on birth control but I take it at the same time every day and I don't "feel pregnant" at all so I seriously doubt that I am. If it doesn't come by tomorrow I'm gonna go buy a test but I wanted to know some other reasons it could be late. Wouldn't it be late all the time if it was caused by some of the health issues?

  • Illness, stress, change in eating habits, sleeping habits, lifestyle change, or something as simple as change in cycle. You could have a hormonal imbalance onset by any of the things mentioned above including infection or virus. It could be a number of things.
