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

You can wait for a week. Else you can take a blood pregnancy test which is more confirmatory. If still the test is negative and you do not get periods then other causes will have to be looked into.

Hypothyroidism, contraceptive pills and polycystic disease of the ovary can cause delayed or missed periods. Pituitary tumors secreting prolactin can also cause such problems. Anemia and poor diet are other reasons for delayed or missed periods. Unexplained or sudden weight gain or weight loss are the other factors to be looked into.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
