The cause of missed periods is not always pregnancy. It can be delayed due to various reasons and most commonly hormonal imbalance, use of contraceptive pills or implants, thyroid dysfunction etc. All these can be diagnosed by lab tests like hormone levels in blood, thyroid function tests, ultrasound etc. After diagnosing the cause you can be treated by medicines for regularizing your periods. Take care.
