Late period

I usually have a regular period, 28-34 days cycle. But this month i have it late. I didn't have any change in may daily routine. The only change i made was the combination of acai berry and colon cleanse pills i been taking in my diet. But other than that i really didn't change anything. I have always been safe with my boyfriend when it comes to sex. In fact the last time i had sex was the last day of my last period (which im supposed to be not ovulating yet) and it was a safe one, and i didn;t have any after that. I usually take parsley tea if i'm late and i usually had my period within 24 hours i took the tea. I took parsley tea two days ago but no result, i changed it with dong quai since yesterday and no result yet. I also usually have all the PMS syndrome during ovulation and until i have my period such as sore breast cramp etc. But i didn't have any of those symptoms this month. i wonder why is that. Can acai berry combined with colon cleanse have this kind of effect on your cycle? i haven't had my period until today and i'm two days late already, i'm so worried....

It is highly unlikely that the supplements or colon cleanse have affected your cycle. Changes in timing, flow, duration and other factors are very common, especially for women in their teens and 20's.

But my period has always been regular, can it just suddenly change its cycle like that? And what does it mean to not have all the PMS symptoms? I am used to have sore breast, mood swings, cramp etc in the middle of my cycle but i didn't have any this month. Could it be the sign of pregnancy. I took home pregnancy test too, on my third day late, it was negative. When is the perfect time to take a pregnancy test?

one more thing, i start to take the acai beryy and colon cleanse the beginning of this month, which is basically also the beginning of this month period....
