Res., I've mentioned in my earlier mails also but i am yet to found out the solution for it.My problem is that whenever i had sex with my boyfriend my periods get delayed and it happend many times and it really makes me sick.Whenever we had sex we normally involved in little foreplay like "fingering and licking" it has never been anything like penetration.I just want to ask that is it possible that "fingering and licking" can dealy the periods whenever one does anything like that or is it only licking which delays the periods or is there anything which delays it.Kindly let me know the solution of the problem.

In this case I'd say that it's probably worry that's delaying your periods. I've noticed in my time here that girls get stressed about something, which has a tendency to mess around with their body and do stuff like delay their periods, this then makes them more stressed and it continues from there.

Also, is it possible that your periods are simply irregular or you're underestimating how long they are? If you're not already, try recording them on a calender so you can get a better sense of when to expect them.
And no, sexual activity -- unless it results in pregnancy -- cannot delay periods. However, as AlwaysWorried said, stress certainly can.
