period may vary to each cycle.
only one day has passed.
so its to early to tell whether she pregnant or not.
u can do test by kit available to check pregnancy.

Hi welcome to health care magic

Just one day missed period do not confirm pregnancy.. wait for another 3 to 4 days . UPT- urine pregnancy test is done to confirm pregnancy.. it is antibody test, even a antibody to appear in the urine it will take atleast a 1week.. . do the UPT test after few days , if it comes positive. confirms the pregnancy..

Hi, I am suffering from Poly cyst ovaries for last 1 year. However, I visited my gynaecologist and was getting periods regularly. But, I missed my periods in April or probably it is delayed. I took mensovit plus tablets to correct my periods but it has been 4 days since I have taken Mensovit plus, yet haven t got my periods. My stomach feels bloated and it aches a bit. I am sexually active and I have taken a hcg strip test already, which says I am not pregnant .
