Brief Answer:
Do test your urine for pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Periods can be late due to breast feeding also. But you need to test your urine for pregnancy using kits available over the counter to rule out the pregnancy.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Pregnancy ruled out.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
Pregnancy is ruled out. You can have hormonal tablets prescribed by your gynecologist to get a withdrawal bleeding. The delay in periods is due to breast feeding.
Hope my answer is helpful.
