I dont have much advice for you, except stress can cause your period to be late. Have you been overly stressed lately?

obviously, I am not a doctor.

But I highly doubt taking a prenatal vitamin can cause a huge change in your cycle.

What you are describing here, the only way I see you could possibly be pregnant is that you ovulated 12 days later than normal.   Given that you have always had regular periods, I think this is unlikely.

It is common to be late every so often because of stress or other outside factors. Not to mention when you did have sex you had sex with protection.

In my opinion, the likelyhood of you being pregnant is pretty low.

I’ve never heard of prenatal vitamins altering a cycle, but stress from things like work and wedding planning 🙂 can alter your cycle. Since you’re already a week late, if you are pregnant an OTC pregnancy test should let you know the answer. I would just take one – it will ease your mind either way. Good luck!

@beeincognito: if you are CERTAIN of when you ovulated, there’s no way to get pregnant twelve days later with protected sex.  

That being said, it’s possible to ovulate later than normal (for some women, it DOES change month to month, so it’s not out of the slim realm of possibility to ovulate at a different date).

I’d just do what the office said.  Take another test in a couple of days and if your cycle doesn’t start, make an appointment.  It isn’t odd for a woman to be late (it’s been asked on here MANY times in the past, btw), so it could just be one of those “odd” months that women can and do get.

🙂 good luck!!
