Respected customer, the pregnancy test is usually good at this time, but not conclusive.There is a high chance that you are not pregnant, but you should take a confirmation test 7 days after your missed period, you can take a test tomorrow morning.
If your test is negative, pregnancy is ruled out.
There are other reasons you can miss your period once in a while. The most common is a hormonal imbalance, due to stress, weight changes, any changes in your diet or daily routine. It is temporary usually, your next cycle should be good and your next period should be on time.If you miss two consecutive periods in a row, make an appointment with your doctor and get an evaluation for:
Thyroid problems
Polycystic ovarian syndrome
Prolactin levels
Hormonal imbalance
I hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any questions please.
I would be glad to help you further.
