Delayed periods, negative pregnancy test. Scheduled blood test. What will be done?

I am going to the OBGYN tomorrow because I am a week late on my period and i feel like I am pregnant. All of the symptoms are there. The only thing is that all the pregnancy tests that I have taken are coming back negative. They did not order a blood test just told me that I should come in. What will they do at my visit?

OBGYN 's  Response
Since you have a delayed period with repeated negative pregnancy tests, your doctor will try to establish the presence or absence of a pregnancy through a physical evaluation and a trans-vaginal sonogram; blood test for estimation of serum beta-hCG titres, coupled with these, is always helpful. If pregnancy is excluded by all these means, it remains to be seen if there is any hormonal imbalance that could have caused this delay through further investigations. Finally, you may be suggested some form or hormones to induce a period or treat any imbalances. Hope this helps.
