In brief: Late period

Do you mean how can you make a period start when you are late? Assuming you are not pregnant, taking a progestin either orally or as a shot will work over 90% of the time.
Or are you asking what can cause a period to be late? Pregnancy is a very common reason, but there's a long list of other possibilities.

In brief: If you are

severely underweight - getting to a normal BMI may help.
