I am 27 years old and I had my tubes tied in November of 2008. My periods have always been regular and I've never been late. I am now two weeks late which is very unusual for my body. However nothing has changed with my daily routines. What could cause my period to be late?

Are you sexually active? As strange as this sounds, have you considered taking a pregnancy test?

There are cases of tubal ligations failing and pregnancy resulting.

If the test is negative then you might consider you may simply have not ovulated this month. This happens to most women at least once (and often more than once) during their reproductive lifetime. No particular reason for this but without ovulation there is no menstrual period that cycle.
