Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. As every women's body is different, there are many different reasons why a period can be delayed. Do you think you may be pregnant? Are you experiencing a lot of stress? There is also the chance that there is no medical reasoning as this just happens from time to time.

If you are concerned, you can certainly make an appointment with your physician. There are prescription medications they can provide that will force your period to start. I hope this helps and please keep us updated.
