Hello madam from the history you have given, I would suggest you to do a urine pregnancy test from the expected date of your periods if you have regular periods....Some women have irregular periods, in that case you may have to waite for a week or so following your missed period....In case the pregnancy test turns out to be negative, than it could be pre menustral symptoms, and you may have to waite for your periods to come. ..If the delay is longing than I would suggest you to consult your gynaecologist, you may require an examination. ..hope i was helpful to you. ....
