Hi and welcome,

The reason for the absent period is most likely the bronchitis. It is a stressor for the body and hence any chronic illness may potentially delay periods. If you are sure that there is no pregnancy, do not worry and just wait. The period will come after a few days maybe even 2-3 weeks. It is not unusual.

f the periods are absent for more than a month then an investigation for hormonal issues and ultrasound for condition of ovaries is needed.

Just relax, and let the bronchitis heal. Most likely the periods will come.

Hope I was able to help.
Thanks for using HCM
