Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
There are many reasons why her period could be delayed. It could occur because of increased stress in some instances. Sometimes due to hormonal imbalance it occurs. Most of the time it is PCOS. She needs to get an ultrasound to confirm. Schedule an appointment with the Gynaecologist and get the ultrasound done and get her examined. Nothing to worry.

Hi Raj,
Welcome to HCM.
You have not mentioned whether she has regular periods or it is usual for her to have delayed periods.
Since you are taking proper protection precautions and since the pregnancy tests have been Negative, it is unlikely she may be pregnant, but just because the test is Negative, one cannot be 100 % sure that she is not pregnant, because pregnancy test only indicates that the pregnancy is not of that duration which can be detected by that test.
Even mental stress and anxiety can prolong periods.
Try not to have sexual intercourse till she gets her period.
