Brief Answer: hormonal imbalance Detailed Answer: Hello, Your periods are delayed and you have a negative pregnancy test. You are most likely to have an hormonal imbalance that has caused a delay in your period. You have pain in the lower abdomen. Hence it is most likely that you would get your periods in a couple of days. I suggest you to wait for 3 days more. If you still do not get your periods, then you can consult your doctor for progesterone pills that cause withdrawal bleeding. Hope this helps you. Regards,
