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..
