Brief Answer:
Can be due to change in country.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
A delay in periods with negative pregnancy test rules out pregnancy. The delay in periods can be due to travelling change in place and change in dietary habit. Exercise and anxiety can also cause such a delay. No need to worry. Just wait and periods will start in next few days. in case the periods still do not start then do get hormonal tablets prescribed by your gynecologist to have 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.
