there are possibilities of all hormonal changes even after no breastfeeding .
relax . many times it happens in this way
use regularly birth control measures for avoiding pregnancy
if still for further 15 days , no menses then take ultrasound examination

Brief Answer:
Blood test with Beta HCG is mandatory to rule out pregnancy .

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query thoroughly .

* More likely that you are having this due to hormonal imbalance of the body .

* For confirmation with urinary pregnancy test , it takes minimum of 5 - 7 days after
predicted time of menses .

* Blood tests with Beta HCG levels are more accurate which can detect positive if
you are pregnant at
3 - 4 days after implantation or
9 - 10 days after ovulation and fertilization .
So tomorrow it will show positive if you are pregnant on 31st day also .

* So get blood test tomorrow and be sure where you stand .

Hope this clears your query .
Welcome for further assistance .
Regards dear take care .
