Brief Answer:
hormonal imbalance is the likely cause

Detailed Answer:

I have read your query with diligence.

Following unprotected or unsecured sex with your friend, you had your periods on 20th Aug 2013. After this, you have not had any sexual intercourse. This makes it certain that you cannot be pregnant.

The likely cause for you not getting your period is hormonal imbalance between oestrogen and progesterone. You can take a short course of progesterone pills for 5 days, so that you get withdrawal bleeding in a week's time.

Please discuss with your treating doctor about this. I am sure your doctor would be aware of this medicine.

Also, it would be ideal to get an ultrasound scan of the uterus and the ovaries to look at their health status.

I would like to confirm that, this delay in period cannot be due to pregnancy, as you have not been sexually active after your last period on August 20.

Hope this helps you.
