Brief Answer:
Hormonal disturbances likely

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Delayed periods can be due to pregnancy, stress or hormonal disturbances like hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia or polycystic ovarian disease.
Your reports and urine pregnancy test are confirmatory of the fact that you are not pregnant.
Moreover,periods can occur within 3-7 days of stopping the meprate.
I will suggest you to wait for a week for the withdrawal periods to occur.
You should also get your thyroid and prolactin levels tested to confirm the cause.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
