Hi,
Thanks for query,
The delayed period is due to your after pill.
After pill contains hormones that will disturb the implantation process at the same time it will disturb your hormonal balance too resulted in to delayed or no period.
The home pregnancy test was taken after 2nd august would show positive result if you are pregnant.
You just wait for withdrawal bleed to happen.
Thanks.
