  • A day late? I'd say wait a little longer before freaking out. There are plenty of reasons besides pregnancy for a period to be late.

  • Only 1 day late? I'd wait another few days for it to show up and/or retest. I had the strangest period I've ever had 2 months ago and freaked a little myself. Once i calmed down and waited a few days, things regulated themselves. Good luck

  • 1 day late - try waiting a week and then re test.

  • Did you take into consideration that February was a short month?

  • I like what Jeremysmom said, but also, as you get older, your body does change.

  • I would wait a bit longer, a day late doesn't neccessarily mean anything..

  • got blood test back today and it was neg.. plus i forgot i had a tubal after my c section and thoses are pretty accurate. the doctor feels pretty confident in the blood test results and the 5 neg test plus i had the tubal. they said not to worry about being late... that periods are all screwy any how and are hardly on schedule.. now i can breathe abit and hope i start soon.

  • Stress can make your period late too.
