Thanks for writing in.
I think it would be worthwhile to get a urine pregnancy
test done. If it is negative, and you don't get your periods in another week, repeat the pregnancy test once again. Still negative , do a serum beta hCG
levels and visit your gynaecologist who might do the relevant investigations and examination.
Delay in periods could be due to many reasons: pregnancy, stress, anxiety, anaemia, thyroid
If there is severe cramping lower abdominal pain
or heavy bleeding, please visit your doctor immediately.
Hope this helps.
