Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. In case you had any unprotected intercourse, the possibility of pregnancy needs to be ruled out. Please do urine for pregnancy test and also get an ultrasound done for ruling out pregnancy.

In case, it’s negative, then other causes of delayed periods need to be looked into. It can happen because of hormonal imbalance, increased stress, eating disorder, alcohol or caffeine use and medical conditions like PCOS, fibroid, polyps and endometriosis. Even anemia can cause periods irregularity. You should not take any iron syrup as it may cause staining of teeth. You can take iron supplements after consulting your doctor.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
