As you are on susten, which is a progesterone, these type of delaying of periods could be due to the hormonal tablet itself or could be due to pregnancy.
But, as ovulation was documented and if you are more than 2 weeks past the ovulation date, then we should keep possibility of pregnancy as first one.
So, i would suggest you to get urine pregnancy test or blood levels of b HCG done to confirm or rule out pregnancy.
Hope this information is useful to you.
Good lick.
