Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Since you have already completed one month since the last period, and there is no frank bleeding, then you should get a pregnancy test and see. If this is negative, and you still do not have periods within a week, then repeat the test.

If still negative and no periods, then other causes like hypothyroidism, PCOD, anemia etc will have to be ruled out. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
