Brief Answer:
Pregnancy is not there.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
You can be assured that pregnancy isn't a factor here.
You have done pregnancy test and beta HCG evaluation and it is negative.
The other reasons of delayed periods may be hormonal imbalance, emotional upset, anxiety, stress, or other medical conditions that affect the ovaries, uterus, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland. Hypothyroidism, post pill amennorhea , polycystic ovarian syndrome or less frequently a pituitary tumor causing high prolactin levels or a hypothalamic disease are other causes that may be the cause here as pregnancy is ruled out.
Taking duphaston does not cause a delay in the periods. The periods will start once you will stop taking Duphaston.
Please visit your gynecologist to undergo physical check up and also to undergo relevant investigations required in your case to find out the cause so that treatment can be given accordingly.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Your egg was not released in last scan.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
Since in the third scan the egg was not released, pregnancy is not likely in this cycle.
You can wait for another 7 days and see if the periods start.
The symptoms that you have can be related to anxiety or premenstrual syndrome or mild hormonal changes also. Since the pregnancy test is negative, pregnancy is ruled out.
Hope my answer is helpful.
