Brief Answer:
Delay is not due to infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The delay in the periods is not related to the possible infection. A urinary infection does not delay the periods. The delay you have could be due to stress anxiety hormonal changes or dietary changes in your body. You can wait for a few day and in case the periods do not start then do consult your gynecologist for hormonal tablets to have a withdrawal bleeding.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
