Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the status of your pregnancy.

For confirming the status of pregnancy by urine for pregnancy test (UPT),the most accurate way to test for pregnancy is to do the urine for pregnancy test after 1 week of your missed periods date. You have got the negative serum HCG test also which in a way rules out pregnancy. This delaying of periods can be due to many reasons stress and anxiety, malnutrition, depression, overexercising, sudden weight loss or gain (obesity),thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS). I would suggest you to get these causes evaluated from your gynecologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
