Brief Answer: Home pregnancy test Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. If you are expecting conception and have not used any contraception then there are chances that the delay in the periods could be Pregnancy. I suggest you to confirm the same by getting a home Pregnancy test. If positive do consult a Gynecologist to confirm by scan and also if needed she/he may advice calcium and vitamin supplements. Avoid travelling for 3 months from now. Regards,
