Is delayed menstruation a symptom of pregnancy?

default
Posted on Tue, 8 Dec 2015
Question: Please help
For the last 6 months my cycles have been regular 24-26 days. I am trying to get pregnant.
I am currently on day 28 and still no sign of period. I have done a pregnancy test but it is negative. Could I still be pregnant? Or is it something else?
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Get serum beta hCG blood test done

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

It is possible that you might be pregnant but it is very early to say so.

Please get serum beta hCG blood test done to know the pregnancy at the earliest. Urine home pregnancy test takes another week to show positive result.

Blood test is earliest to predict.

There are chances of pregnancy

Hi,

There is chance that you are pregnant.

Other symptoms are not necessary for pregnancy.

Feeling of wetness does not signify anything.

Brief Answer:
There is possibility of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I don't think there should be anything wrong. You are likely to get pregnant.

Only other possibility is delayed periods that occur once in a while in women.
