Brief Answer:
Urine pregnancy test advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Please do a urine pregnancy test first in case you have had any unprotected sexual activity.
If the test is negative then nothing to worry and just have a nite of flow in next few months from now.
In case this persists then get an ultrasound done.
Take care
