Starting a new medication and changes in physical activity levels must have contributed to the delay in periods. She will likely start her period in a few days. If she does not get her period in the next few days, repeat the home pregnancy test.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had protected sex, condom, about 2 days after ovulation, no ejaculation. A week later but he did ejaculate while wearing a condom & spermicide. My period is 4 days late and I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. Could I be pregnant anyway?
