Thanks for posting your query.
If she has missed her two periods in a row then the possibility of pregnancy is there which should be ruled out first of all. She can do a urine test using a test kit available at all the pharmacies.
The other reasons of delayed periods may be hormonal imbalance, emotional upset, anxiety, stress, or other medical conditions that affect the ovaries, uterus, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland. Hypothyroidism, post pill amennorhea , polycystic ovarian syndrome or less frequently a pituitary tumor causing high prolactin levels or a hypothalamic disease are other causes that may be the cause after the pregnancy is ruled out.
Please ask her to visit her gynecologist to undergo physical check up and also to undergo relevant investigations required in case she is not pregnant so that treatment can be given accordingly.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Thanks for writing again.
If you did not have sex since August, then pregnancy is not likely. The other common cause is a hormonal disturbance. All the causes i have mentioned are not serious and can be treated if diagnosed timely.
Please do not worry and ask her to consult a gynecologist.
Hope my answer is helpful.
