I’m posting this on behalf of my wife. She completely skipped a period back in October 2018 which came back in November and was normal for three months but now she is 6 days late. There is no chance of pregnancy. She’s not on any form of pill. About two weeks ago she had a little outbreak of acne around her jawline as well which hasn’t really cleared up. Just wondering if this is something we should be worrying about because apart from the lack of menses she feels completely fine health wise. She is 31, quite thin and Japanese if any of that means anything.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to this forum.
Delay of cycle once or twice in a year is not considered as abnormal. But if it occurs as a regular basis, she needs to be evaluated. Sometimes, delay in cycle can be due to diverse reasons including stress, ill health or anxiety or tension.So keeping this in mind, keep a menstrual calender of her and if that is too frequent, a doctor's visit is mandatory.
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.
