What causes delayed periods?

Hi! I had sex with my bf using condom and condom didn t break. 6 days before my period, I had spotting once a day for 2 days and skip day(no spotting) then spotting once for 3rd day then stopped. Now I am 15 days delayed. On the of period, i tested using hpt it is negative. On 10 days late, hpt is negative. And today 15 days late, hpt is negative again. I have no to less cm. I am so stressed about this. Feel like i am emotionally stressed because I am not ready to be pregnant. This the first time i had this late period. Am i still pregnant. No signs of any pregnancy.

Hello,

A negative pregnancy test rules out pregnancy. The delayed period can occur due to other causes like stress, anemia, hormonal disturbances.

I suggest you consult your primary health care provider for clinical assessment and treatment for delayed periods.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shailja Puri, Pathologist and Microbiologist
