Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Assuming that you have regular cycles AND given that this was protected intercourse, the negative test indicates that you are not pregnant.

That being said, the reason for your delayed period remains uncertain. There is no doubt that Illness can have an effect on your cycle. Often this effect is a delay in either when you ovulated and/or when you get your period.

I would recommend repeating the test in one week, by which time my guess is that you will get your period.

Please ask if you have more questions!
