Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the absence/delay of periods or amenorrhea that you are having. I would suggest you to get your serum HCG levels estimated since this is a more sensitive test than the urine for pregnancy test. The HCG (it is a hormone) levels rise only in pregnancy and its presence will confirm the status of your pregnancy.
If pregnancy is ruled out, then other causes of delayed periods need to be looked into. It can happen because of hormonal imbalance, increased stress, eating disorder, increased smoking, alcohol or caffeine use and medical conditions like PCOS, fibroid, polyps and endometriosis. So my suggestion would be to consult a gynaecologist and get serum HCG levels done. Confirmation can be done by an ultrasound uterus. Not only it clears the status of pregnancy but also can help in diagnosing medical conditions causing delayed periods.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
