Hello christy;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The time when you missed the pills is the second week and the ovulation occurs near the end of second week so there are chances but it will be more if you missed in second half of the week.Delayed periods can be due to stress;anaemia;ovarian cyst;or hormonal imbalance and periods can get delayed even till 10 days.If the pregnancy test is negative then probably you are not pregnant and the delay may be due to other reasons.If you are worried you can get a repeat HPT after another 2-3 days with first morning sample of urine.If that is also negative then you are surely not pregnant.
