Brief Answer:
FOLLOW THE ADVICE.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for clarification.

You have missed period near about 3 weeks and gotten NEGATIVE test recently. Besides pregnancy, late period may be due to hormonal imbalance, Poly Cystic Ovary, mental stress, emotional upset, irregular diet habit, high prolactin level, over weight or extreme loss, pelvic infection, thyroid disturbance etc.

In that case, one pelvic ultrasound scan and complete hormone test (like LH/ FSH, Estrogen, serum Prolactin, Thyroid, DHEAS etc) will be worthwhile to rule out the underlying cause and confirm the diagnosis. You must consult with her local GYNECOLOGIST following blood test.

Proper treatment depends on diagnosis of the case. You may require combined hormonal pill or cyclic progesterone along with supportive drugs treatment to induce and regularize period. Kindly, procure a complete prescription from your doctor.

In addition, you would take healthy diet (LOW CARBOHYDRATE) with more green vegetables, drink more water, keep bowel habit regular, avoid mental stress by meditation or yoga, control body weight by regular physical exercise & maintain genital hygiene properly.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.

Regards,
Dr Soumen
