Welcome to this forum.
Any illness or stress can delay your cycle. But are you sexually active? Then do a pregnancy testing now. If the testing is negative, don't worry. This delay is almost considered as physiological and you will get your cycle soon.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
