User avatar Hi Cheyenne:
There is always the rare chance that a clip came off and pregnancy resulted. However, it is common for women to have late periods and/or miss a period all together. Even women who are regular can have an occasional late period due to stress, excessive exercise or illness. You can take an over-the-counter pregnancy test now as early as one week past the date you were due for your period to start. However, rather than spend the money, I suggest you wait another week and see if you start your period.
