Brief Answer:
Serum beta hCG to confirm pregnancy first

Detailed Answer:

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) You were supposed to get periods by now. But you didnt.

2) It is possible that periods are delayed by 4 to 5 days once in a while. You may not be pregnant in the first place.

3) To confirm pregnancy get serum beta hCG blood test done. This will confirm pregnancy.

4) Please let me know the result of this test so that I can instruct further steps.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.
