Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Food poisoning does not delay menses.
It must be from some other cause.
Are your cycles regular generally?
Did you have any complications with the poisoning? What food poison was suspected?
Menstruation is controlled by hormonal levels. So, bacterial toxins do not directly it.

You can wait for a few days and if it is still not there, see a gynaec expert.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
