    Could be switching the medication time has caused a hormone imbalance or the stress of the job. May even be an oddity like your body is syncing with the women in the department. If it's an ongoing problem, just have a chat about it with your doctor.

    I skipped my period entirely a few months ago, first time I ever did that in 6 years of being on the Pill. It normally comes like clockwork, at almost the exact time and day. I got worried something was wrong, but my Dr said nope probably just stress. She told me if it happens again in the future, don't be concerned. Only if I miss it 2 times in a row, then I should come back and see her. But periods being late, skipping occasionally happens all the time apparently, even on the Pill! She said it could be the smallest change liek your sleep, diet, stress - anything like that can throw off your hormones.
