Hi!
welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Delayed cycles can be due to hormonal changes(natural or from oc pills), stress, thyroid hypofunction,anemia,infections etc..Do get a ultrasound scan of pelvis to see for ovaries-Cysts/polycyst etc..,get routine blood profile,thyroid profile,blood sugar,prolactin levels and let us know.
