Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

A cyst in the ovary doesn’t rule out pregnancy if the periods get delayed. The pregnancy can be ruled out by doing a serum beta HCG test which is a more sensitive test compared to the urine test.

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 gynecologist 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.
