Brief Answer:
repeat pregnancy test after 1 week

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam thanks for trusting health care magic.
As per your cycle regularity you are around 2-4 days past your period date with negative urine pregnancy test which can be due to following reasons -
- delayed ovulation so delayed conception
- tubal ectopic pregnancy
- routine delay of periods due to some stress or altered eating habits.

In this situation you need to wait for periods for another week.
In case you get them its alright but in case you don't then repeat the pregnancy test which if negative then get a pelvic ultrasound and b-hcg testing done to rule out ectopic pregnancy.
And in case test is positive then its a good news and was due to delayed ovulation so just visit your gynecologist for antenatal booking.
All the best

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
