The normal menstrual cycle lasts between 21 and 35 days. In pregnancy, hCG is secreted. This enters your blood as early as one week following fertilisation. You can do home urine for pregnancy test after 1 week-10 days of your due periods date. Confirmation of pregnancy is done by ultrasonography or serum beta HCG.

Hope it helps. Regards.

hii mam,
Good afternoon.

You have completed 35th day of amenorrhoea with pregnancy test negative on 31st.
Basically home pregnancy test is done immediately after missed period or after 7 days from missed to get good result.
You should have to repeat the test with pregakit along with a blood test for confirmation of pregnancy.
Missed or delayed period has several reasons other than pregnancy like emotional upset, stress, thyroid problem, PCOD, need to investigate properly.

Consult with your gynaecologist if period delaying more than 2 months with exclusion of pregnancy.

For more suggestion,mail

All the best.
