Brief Answer:
Stress or hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns.

There are negligible chances of pregnancy as you had sex in safe period. Negative pregnancy test also rule out pregnancy.

The delay in periods could be due to stress or hormonal imbalance. Have you had irregular cycles in past? Are you taking any medication?

In such cases, tablet norethistrone 5mg twice a day for 5 days can help to regularize periods. Consult your OBGYN for valid prescription.

Hope this helps.
