Detailed Answer:
Dear member,
Thanks for writing.
The delay in period can be due to pregnancy.
Please do a urine pregnancy test. If you are pregnant then it will definitely be positive.
If negative then you are not pregnant . In suchcase you can wait for a spontaneous period or visit your doctor to consider tablet regesterone for inducing a period.
You will also need detailed investigation for irregular periods like hormone assessment and ultrasound.
Please write back if you have any queries.
Thanks

Dear member,

You may be having polycystic ovarian syndrome. Hence you have been prescribed chrominac by your doctor.
The folic acid is a vitamin supplement.
It does not help in regular period but is a
pre pregnancy vitamin so that in case you conceive you will not abort.
The chrominac tablet has helped you to regularise your cycles. May be as you missed it it can be the reason for delayed cycles.
But pregnancy can also be possible.
Please do pregnancy test .
Thanks
