In Nov 2003 was late by 1 1/2 weeks, not pregnant, and now am 3 days late and am not pregnant. Have had HGC Quantative test and hormone level's are normal. Why does this happen and what can the cause be?

It is quite normal to have the occasional delayed period. It may be related to stress or may mean that you do not ovulate every month. If you are trying for a pregnancy, try using the cervical mucus technique to see when you are ovulating.
