hello,
you can repeat the test after 1 to 2 weeks. if it comes negative then there is less chance of pragnancy . there are other causes of delayed period also. so wait for another week
take care

Hi rani;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the pregnancy test is negative then what your doctor has given are tablets for withdrawal bleeding which are to be taken for 5 days and after the effect of the tablets wear off then you will get periods.As far as the time to confirm pregnancy it can be confirmed in 2-3 days after you miss the date only in few cases it can be confirmed as late as 1 week so if you still are not sure then you can repeat 1 week after your expected date and preferable with morning sample of urine.What i would suggest is if the pregnancy test is negative you can start on with the tablets as advised by your doctor.
Thanks
