Thanks for the query.

You should have some hormone tests done as well as a pelvic ultrasound to find out the exact cause for your delayed periods.

There are many reasons like PCOS etc that may cause delayed periods.

If the periods are not regular then pregnancy will not happen.

You can use duphaston from day 16 for 10 days as it will help in implantation, if it happens.

Diet and exercise are equally important in the treatment as well.

Diagnosing the problem is most important here so that the correct treatment can be given.

You and your husband should approach the problem together.

Hope I have answered your query. Please write back if you have additional concerns.

Wishing you good health.
