Hello I need help deciphering what is happening to my

Patient

Q: Hello. I need help deciphering what is happening to my body. I recently got off birth control 2 months ago. Last month I had a period but it lasted 2 days longer than "normal" (I took it as my body taking over and getting off hormones). I also started taking prenatal vitamins as my husband and i are planning on TTC later this year. I was due to have my period last week and has not shown up. We have used a condom every time we have sex so the chance of being pregnant is very low (so i would like to think). I have been pregnant before (ended in miscarriage) and i do not have any of the symptoms as when i missed my period last time; i.e., sore breasts, moodiness, etc. The prenatal vitamin is the only thing that i have changed, could that have interfered in some way? if not, is there a medical theory as to why i am late?

Symptoms:  Missed period, no pregnancy symptoms
