In brief: Hcg

Yes HCG administration can delay the menstrual cycle depending on when it is given.
Hcg is the hormone made by the placenta that maintains the corpus luteum, which then makes estrogen and Progesterone to maintain a pregnancy. So if a HCG injection is given in the late luteal phase it can delay a menstrual cycle.
