Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you've been 8 weeks late for your periods. This is a significant period of time and we would recommend you to do a Home Urine Pregnancy test as soon as possible. Irrespective of the result of the test, you should get in touch with your Ob-Gyn Doctor then to find out the exact cause behind the delay in your menstrual period. If the results are positive, your Doctor will most likely get an Ultrasound done to confirm the pregnancy. If you are not pregnant, then a complete examination along with few laboratory tests will be conducted to find out the reason behind the delay in periods. Hope this helped
