Delayed periods, test negative, no major symptoms. Pregnant?

I m 18 and had protected sex on the 27th of January. My last period ended on the 20th of January (but was 12 days late). I ve taken two pregnancy tests but both have been negative. I ve been a little bit bloated but other than that none of the pregnancy symptoms other than a missed period have been noticed. I just started uni so have been a little bit stressed. What are the chances I m pregnant and if not, why would I be so late because 16 days is a long time to be late and I m freaking out a lot

Pregnancy is possible only, if unprotected sexual intercourse is done with ejaculation around ovulation time in regular period. Ovulation occurs approx 14 days before due date. It is unpredictable in case of irregular period.

First of all, you need to rule out pregnancy by doing one blood test for beta-HCG at the earliest.

Other reasons for delayed period are hormonal imbalance (most common in this context), stress/ anxiety/ mental upset, ovarian cyst, irregular diet pattern, wt change, thyroid disorder etc.

Consult with your gynecologist for relevant examination & investigation like USG pelvis, complete hormone profile etc

Avoid stress by regular deep breathing, take healthy diet with iron supplements, keep bowel regular, control body wt by regular exercise/yoga and take proper sleep.

Be well & take care.
