  • It means that you either didn't ovulate and your uterine lining is shedding or that you ovulated later than normal.

  • t may not mean anything. It could mean just that your cycle is off. It could mean that you might be pregnant.

  • It could mean any number of things. Pregnant, stressed, not eating enough, doing a lot of exercise, some other unknown problem...... but stress or pregancy are probably the most likely of the two...

  • You might be pregnant but it could be other things also. Like was mentioned above it could be stress. My period was just 6 days late and I took 2 tests and they both were negative. My period finally started but it did scare me when it was late. I have always been a 28 day girl.
