There are several reasons why you may have missed your period many of which are not serious. However, if you miss more than one menstruation cycle it is advisable that you contact your doctor to discuss the issue.
The cause of a missed period is most commonly due to pregnancy, though as you say you are not sexually active this is clearly not the reason. Others factors can also have an effect on your menstrual cycle. Stress, changes in weight and strenuous sport related exercises are a few of the most often cited explanations. Other causes can be breast feeding, the discontinuation of oral contraception and menopause, although, again I don't think you need to worry about those. One serious cause for your missed period could be an ovarian cyst, so it is important that you contact your family doctor should you continue to miss your period.
Missing a period is referred to amenorrhea in medical terms and comes in two classifications, Primary and Secondary. I believe, if at all, you would only be affected by Primary amenorrhea. Primary amenorrhea, where the problem is menstruation cycles never starting, can be caused by developmental problems. Conditions such as the congenital absence of the uterus or failure of the ovary to receive or maintain egg cells are common examples. In addition to these reasons, a delay in pubertal development can also lead to primary amenorrhea. According to the website menstruation-info-with-doc.com it is medically defined as "an absence of secondary sexual characteristics by age 14 with no menarche (first menstrual cycle) or normal secondary sexual characteristics but no menarche by 16 years of age."
It is not unusual for a woman to miss, or skip, a period throughout her life, but if you are worried you should seek medical advice.

It could be stress, it could be your body changing... If you've been sick or are getting sick... If you've recently had a major change in your schedule.. If you've been more active IE: Playing sports or working out..change in diet.. Your body changes, your hormones change and as you get older things change. When I turned nineteen my body changed and I missed my period for a month, I also missed it for a month when I was sick with mono but still didn't know I had mono yet. I'd go see your doctor just to be sure though ;] .

Virgin girls can also get cycle irregularities including absence of periods on due dates. If a girl don't get periods even after 35 days gap then she should get advice from the doctor. Following can be causes of missing of periods in virgin or non pregnant ladies.
  1. Stress, anxiety or any other psychological problem
  2. Hormonal imbalance
  3. Pituitary gland and thyroid gland problem
  4. Use of antidepressants and oral corticosteroids
  5. Being underweight
  6. Uterine scar
  7. Excessive exercise
So, visit your family doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

There can be many reasons. Your diet can be one cause; if you are not eating enough it can possibly cause missed periods. If you have no proper meat in your diet, for some woman this can have an effect.

Visit the nurse if you are still worried.
