Brief Answer: possibly hormonal imbalance Detailed Answer: Hello, If pregnancy can be ruled out, then quite possibly, hormonal imbalance is the cause of the delayed period. The drug you are taking should not cause this side effect. I would suggest that you test your hormone levels and do an ultrasound. Thyroid dysfunction, prolactin dysfunction, polycystic ovaries are some common causes of hormonal imbalance. See your doctor and and do some tests.
