Thanks for the details

I think pregnancy can still be a possibility and this test may be too early

You should have a repeat test after a week just in case you did not get your period

If you remains negative then it is unlikely to be pregnancy related delay

The other causes could include stress,relocation from one area to another,hormonal imbalance,infection and polycystic ovarian syndrome

But as I said first you have to repeat a test week later

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Ok thanks as I never have irregular periods there always on time, when should I try another test in a week today or mid next week!?

Ideally you should take it exactly if the delay is more than 12 days

Please do let me know if you have any other question

If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
