If you are late by 10 days today then you need to take a pregnancy test immediately. If its negative then dont worry yet. Since your periods are irregular your fertile dates cannot be calculated accurately. Sp take the test first and if its negative then just wait for your period to occur. If you miss by a month,then you should consult a doctor for treatment.

If the test is negative then you can be rest assurred that you are not pregnant. In that case, there is probably a hormonal imbalance causing the irregular cycles. You will need to see a doctor for evaluation and tests to find out the reason. If however,your test is positive, then you also need to see your gynaecologist asap. There are medical and surgical methods of termination and you will need to consult your doctor for that.
