Thank you for your question.

Periods not coming with a negative pregnancy test is something that happens commonly and is usually due to hormonal disturbances that can happen due to various reasons such as:

  1. Stress
  2. Thyroid problem
  3. Raised prolactin
  4. Excessive physical exercise

These are the few causes that need to be considered and ruled out.

Does not sound likely to be anything serious.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
