Hello,
A period can get delayed due to simple causes like emotional stress or dieting or exercises. It can also get delayed due to conditions like hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, anemia etc.
If your wife is usually quite regular in her menstrual cycle, chances are that she is delayed due to some sort of stress - if you are actively trying for a pregnancy, that could be stressful enough to delay her periods.

She has been irregular but only 5 days usually. But this time it's 2 weeks. Also I'm a bodybuilder very healthy and normal . I take supplements like pre workouts which include creatine , caffeine, amino acids etc. I hope these will not affect her ?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.M.D.Mazumdar, Doctor replied 3 years ago
A menstrual cycle can be irregular for +/- 7 days, that is, a period which occurs 7 days before or after the date is normal. But a delay of more than 7 days needs to be tested for.
A delay of 5 days every month indicates that her menstrual cycle is longer - of about 32 days, rather than the more usual 28 days. This is perfectly normal and will not affect her chances of pregnancy in any way. But with a history of delayed periods, please wait for another week and then repeat the pregnancy test.
The supplements you are on will not affect her.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
