Hello madam, from the history you have given, well delayed periods can be due to many causes.Apart from pregnancy, sometimes stress may delay the periods. Thyroid disorders may also alter the cycle.i would suggest you to consult your gynaecologist, once pregnancy is ruled out and if there no underlying pathological condition then you may be prescribed medicines for withdrawal bleeding. Hope i was helpful to you.
