Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Do you have any unprotected sex recently?

How regular are your periods generally?

Regards

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Had unprotected sex last month
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
they are always regular

When you had the sex and when was your last period?

Regards

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I had unprotected sex on the 9th September
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
my last period was around the week of August
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Im a week late

Have you done the pregnancy test?

Regards

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Its was supposed to be the first of October
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
3 times it was all negative

Thanks for the details

Just wait for another week

Mostly it is a kind of hormonal imbalance causing such delay

Other possibility can be a premature ovarian failure

But you have to wait a week and if still no period then have an evaluation by your doctor

That will require female hormone levels and ultrasound for polycystic ovaries

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
you don't think its possible that im pregnant

Since you have negative test so highly unlikely but as it is quite early so you have to do a repeat test after one week

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Oh ok because i feel like im having pregnancy symptoms
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Thats why i was also concerned

You need to repeat the test after one week and then visit the doctor

Please do let me know if you have any other question
