Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you are worried about the delay in your periods. As you have a 21 day cycle normally, it is natural for you to be worried about the delay. However, we would like you to know that 5-7 days delay can be seen in periods and should not be a cause of concern. If you are worried about being pregnant, you can do a home urine pregnancy test to find out. If it comes out as positive, you should get in touch with your Ob-Gyn Doctor who will then do an ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis. Even if it is negative and you don't get your periods in the near future, you should then also contact your Doctor to find out the cause. Hope this helps

General & Family Physician Dr. Shanthi.E's  Response

There are chances that you may be pregnant. However, none can assure you that without doing an ultrasound or a pregnancy test at the least.

Please do a simple urine pregnancy test at home. There are commercially available kits for the same that are available over the counter.

Do the test at your home. If it is positive, then it is most likely that you are, indeed.

If not, wait for another week to get your periods normally.

I hope this helps you.
