Brief Answer:
Hormonal disturbances can be likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Delayed periods can be due to pregnancy or hormonal disturbances like hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia or polycystic ovarian disease.
I will suggest you to get a urine pregnancy test done.
If negative, then you should get your thyroid hormone , prolactin hormone levels and an ultrasound of the pelvis to confirm the diagnosis and take further treatment accordingly.
Gynaset is given to induce the periods, if delayed due to any other cause other than pregnancy.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Regards
