Thanks for posting your query.

Missed period can be due to various reasons other than pregnancy.Usually Blood test gives accurate results after 10 days of expected period date and is a confirmatory test for pregnancy determination.

Other than that it can be due to hormonal derangements which may or may not be due to any underlying pathology.Sometimes a follicle is also formed in the ovary preventing menstruation.In such case hormonal preparations are prescribed for a fixed time period.

The exact cause can be ruled out after a detailed pelvic examination and USG (ultrasound) scan which would help in giving a clear picture.

Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation so that appropriate treatment can be started accordingly.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up query.
