Planning baby .. My periods are delayed

User Profile
Hi I am 29 years old . We are Planning baby .. My periods are delayed by 6 days already .. I took a test after 3 days of my due date, it was negative .. But i feel hungry most of the times .. My body feels chill. I feel feverish . Do i need to take the test again as i have read that sometimes hormones are not produced and it shows negative results..My breasts pains ( though it usually pains when my period date is around)

Also i got a stye on my eye. Are these the symptoms of pregnancy

Hi! Thanks for your query on eHealth Forum!

Since you are now more than 6 days post your due date of periods, and because you have pregnancy like symptoms, please take a blood test for HCG estimation. This is often a more reliable test when compared to urine test. If this is negative, then please consult your Obs and Gyn. The delay could be due to stress or illness or hormonal imbalance. Hope this helps! Take care!
