Brief Answer:
Can be due to pregnancy or hormonal changes.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

The presence of follicle in the ovary can be due to a corpus luteum cyst. The delay in periods can be due to pregnancy or hormonal disturbance.

Anxiety related to impending pregnancy can also cause such a delay.

It is best to do a urine test for pregnancy and in case the test is negative then have hormonal tablets to get a withdrawal bleeding after consulting your gynecologist.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow-up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
