Thanks for writing to us.

As your periods always fall between 40-45 days, your ovulation is most likely to fall around the 30th day as ovulation usually occurs 14 days prior to the next cycle. In such a situation, a home pregnancy test may not give you a confirmed result at this early stage.

As your cycles at the time of your marriage seem to have been disturbed, it is also likely that this hormonal disturbance may take some time to settle. In the current scenario, I would suggest that you get serum beta-hCG test to confirm/exclude pregnancy. If you do not get your cycle even after a week, please see a specialist and also get a trans-vaginal sonogram.

Hope I have answered your query. Please feel free to contact if you need further clarifications. I will be happy to help.
