Brief Answer:
Urine pregnancy test advised to confirm the diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Delayed periods can be due to stress, pregnancy or hormonal disturbances.
If the urine pregnancy test is negative at the time of the expected periods, then the chances of pregnancy are almost nil.
I will suggest to repeat the urine pregnancy test now.
If negative, then there are no chances of pregnancy.
Fetus is visible only when the urine pregnancy test is positive.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Brief Answer:
Deviry not a contraceptive

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Deviry tablet is not a contraceptive, so one can be pregnant even while and after taking it.
All the symptoms you are having are suggestive of premenstrual phase.
So, wait for thee periods for another one week.
Regards
