No I don't have an infection my last period was 4 days long which is normal for me I'm not taking any kind of birth control I'm 3 weeks late on my period I have cramps but there's no blood
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 8 months ago.

Ok

In that case there is a risk of pregnancy.

3 weeks delayed means you can take a urine pregnancy test now.

Blood pregnancy test will be more accurate though.

Next possibility can be stress related hormonal fluctuation --that can delay period commonly.

Thyroid gland disorder like hypothyroidism is another common cause.
